We celebrated Leap Day by decorating frog cupcakes -- come and get 'em before they all hop away!

The Beautiful Dreamers Collection

Looking through our pictures recently I realized just how many I have of our boys (particularly Lukey and Lijah) sleeping, mostly not in their beds. Here are all the sleeping ones I found from the past six months.

Luke on the couch

Levi on the couch

Luke on the floor next to his bed.

Luke and Lij on the floor in their bedroom (they just DON'T believe in sleeping IN their beds!)

Lij on the floor just outside his bedroom door

Levi sleeping on the couch... well he started out that way anyway.

Lijah in the recliner

Luke sleeping under the bear's watchful gaze

Fast asleep while Daddy plays Nintendo

Little sleeping angel

This dinner was obviously a total bore!

Papa's lap is quite condusive to dreaming

Another dinner not worth staying awake for

Luke out cold in the van

After swimming and camping Lij is ready to sleep ANYWHERE, even on the picnic table, even while wearing a lifejacket!

More exhaustion while camping

Vacation is just made for sleeping!

Catching up

It has come to my attention that I've been negligent about updating. Lo and behold, I have! I guess time flies when you're having fun, and while most days I look at the temp and think this place is anything but fun, our photo library testifies to the fact that we have had quite a bit of fun in the past month and a half. Here are a few (no, many) photos of our recent adventures.

Dad, Mom and Kenner came for a visit in January. One day Mom and I took the boys to the park (even though is was only 30 degrees) and had lots of fun playing on the frozen lake and drawing pictures in the snow.

Lijah helping Dad try to win a game of Minesweeper (Kenner took all the top scores).

The boys went sledding one weekend while we were in Bismarck...

And we all went swimming at the community center pool in Dickinson (about an hour from here) last weekend. Lots of fun there!

Here is my hero rescuing someone is distress (ok, actually this was pole climbing class and he's "rescuing" a dummy, but it's good to know that if I ever did get stuck on the top of a pole [something I'm quite prone to, you know] Wade could rescue me quite valiantly!).

Snow ice cream time again!

And one more just cuz it's cute -- this is how I found Luke and Lij when I checked on them before bed one night. Luke rarely sleeps on his bed, much preferring the floor, and Lij just wants to sleep wherever his brothers are, so he snuggled in real close too.
