Thank Heaven for Little Boys

Holy cow I am sooo behind!! again! Picture mania lately leaves me little time to post on my own blog. I always feel guilty (which I know I totally shouldn't) posting on this blog when I am 6 behind, yep 6, on my pictures. But there are a few things I just need to get written down so I don't forget! I am appreciative for insomnia...which gives me a little time to do this.

Meet David and Goliath. This is my little brother's little boy, Hudson, next to his big sister's big boy, Beck. Hilarious huh? They are 2 months apart in age and 2 years apart in size. If we're talking Snickers I told them that I guess we know how to make the king sized version and they the bite size. The legs...oh, the legs ha ha.

My mom with her grandsons and her black eye :)
Marbled paper. This was way fun. You put shaving cream in a pan. Then drip some food coloring randomly. Take a toothpick and swirl, pull, push the color spots around. Then get a piece of card stock and push it on lightly. Finally grab a squeegee and swipe all the excess off. I let both of the boys give it a go and they LOVED it. The papers actually turned out pretty stinking cool, but Beck woke up mid project so the final product was never documented.

Unbeknownst to me, Kesler had been chewing on the food coloring bottle.

Best buddies. This summer we spent a lot of time with the Williams family. Jax and Brevin were on the same T-Ball team, football team, and their mom taught the boys swimming lessons. It was so fun to get to know them. Our paths have crossed often, but after spending so much time together this summer we are convinced that we were destined to be friends! We have so much fun whenever we are with them, and can't wait for them to finish their house so they'll only be a few steps away!

With this crazy little thing I call my life, I am so so so lucky for my boys. They keep me going. Beck has brought such a strong sense of love to our home. I know he came just when he was supposed to. I am in awe every day of how much Brevin and Kesler love their baby brother.

I asked Brevin if he would want to have another baby at our house (totally hypothetically of course) and he had the sweetest response. He crinkled his little face up and said "No, way!" I was actually really surprised given how much he loves Beck so I asked him why, and his response was this..."I don't want to see you go through that again, Mom." I was a little taken back and asked "Go through what?" he said, "You were always puking, and sick, and hurting. Remember that day when you came to get me from school and you needed to puke and didn't know where to go? So you grabbed that cup in the car and puked in it? I don't ever want you to have to go through that again." He really is such a good boy. I couldn't believe that at 6 years old that had bothered him so much. I just love him.

I think that you are doing great at keeping up with your blog. I think I need insomnia so that I can get more accomplished. We need to get together again sometime soon. It has been too long. Give your boys kisses for me and keep updating this blog.

You do have such sweet boys. You know you are doing something right as a parent when they sincerely care about how you're feeling.

Love your blog. Love your family!

What a great blog post. I was laughing so hard with Hudson and baby Beck. I love the rolls so much. Those boys are beyond darling, and right back at you, we were destined to be friends. We are so grateful for your family in our lives and can't wait to be closer. Sheet rocking on Thursday, we are getting there!
