Slumber Party with the Hollands!

Tonight the boys had a slumber party with the Hollands! It was #6 (Cade) and #7 (Bode) first sleepover, and we were so blessed to have them join us! Bode and Noah have been friends since they were 6 months old...hard to believe it's been that long! And Cade has always been such a good "older" and wisesr friend to Noah. He has such a sweet heart, and is already so responsible! The Hollands have always been a blessing in our lives, in many different ways over the years.

So tonight we had dinner that they all gobbled up, played, took baths (there's nothing like clean, naked boys running wild around the house), attempted to read books (we only made it through one), made brownies, and watched a movie. They are all tucked in bed now, although as you can see from the first picture, the Holland boys are laying nicely, and mine is making mean faces at the camera with lots of energy. Great.

Reading a story that didn't have much focus...
Heather, here are your babies all snuggled safe in bed.

At 9:30 tonight, I realized that I had not done Valentine's with Noah for his party tomorrow. Fortunately, we had bought them a few days ago, so we just needed to sign them. It only took him about 10 minutes to sign this cards, and I popped a sucker on them...done! I can get so into projects sometimes, and care less others. This was obviously a care less. He concentrated so hard, he's really been into coloring and writing, which is good, because he used to HATE to color!
Andrew was laughing at our boys tonight just watching how happy and excited they both were, but especially Jakey that they were having friends for the night. It's fun to see them creating those memories. And just as a side not, Jakey is CHUNKING up! We noticed tonight for the first time how chunky he's geting...he had better spring up soon! Although he is only a few inches and pounds smaller then Noah, and he's almost 2 years younger!

Ah, so sweet. Love seeing those pics! Thanks for sharing. And thanks for your email report that all is good on the homefront. I'm sure Ryan really enjoyed his little one-on-one with you today. We all love you! Keep the reports coming tomorrow :-)
