Last night, I went to bed thinking "Oh great! Jason doesn't work tomorrow and we don't have anywhere to be right away so we can sleep in (until like 8 or 9 would perfect). What a great morning this will be!" (Plus the boys were up late so I just assumed they would sleep in. WRONG!)
This morning I wake up at 6:45 to a little boy, Kyden, telling me he needs his diaper changed. Then he wants in my bed with HIS pillow. He loves his pillow and is very possessive of HIS pillow. Braden had come into our bed a little bit before that so it was a bit crowded. Once I got everyone situated and was starting to fall back asleep, I here a little boy complaining about HIS pillow because Braden was laying on it! Seriously, can't we just sleep! So Jason moves Braden over and goes into the boys bed. I think I dozed off a little here and there in between complaints from a little boy. The next thing I remember is about 8 when Kyden is standing by my bed crying because the doors locked, what door you ask?
Well, Grandpa Searle is done digging potatoes!!! Yahoo! They finished yesterday, a couple days later than planned because of the people who were taking the potatoes were SLOW!! But they are done and that's all that matters now!!! Just happy to be done and have the weather hold out so they could finish. So, to celebrate, he took us to dinner. Then to Home Depot for a rake and shovel for Kyden. Grandpa stopped here the other day and Kyden wanted the rake and shovel out of his pickup but when Grandpa got it out, Kyden didn't like it because it was too big. Our neighbor has a small REAL rake and shovel that Kyden loves so I think he thought Grandpas was like that too. So, since then, he's been begging Grandpa for a rake and shovel. So, to celebrate, Grandpa got both boys a rake and shovel. Cal Ranch has kid size ones but it was closed by the time we were done eating so Home Depot had to work. Kyden was one happy man! Although he did want it to be light outside so he could use his tools in his dirt.
So, back to the door...I thought Kyden couldn't get the door to the garage open so he could get his shovel and rake out of the car. Well, I go to help him open it and he goes to the front door and picks something up. You have to understand that I am pretty much blind without glasses or contacts so I couldn't see what he was picking up, but I soon realized it because he said "Two rakes, two shovels". While we were all sleeping, he had gone out to the car and brought in the 2 shovels and 2 rakes by himself. Good thing we have a dead bolt on the front door and that he forgot that he knows how to open the big garage door--get in the car and use the remote (he's done that many times--little trouble maker). So, I let him outside telling him that he probably needs a jacket, but he told me no which I knew he would because he doesn't like coats, jackets, socks, shoes--anything like that! But when he got outside, he said "Brrrrr" so he let me put on his coat! He is such a funny little guy! We love him--even if he does get us up when it's sleep in morning!
He only looks sad in the picture below because he was SUPER tired and ready to be in bed! But he was super smiling happy when he was at the store and finally got what he wanted!
I'm just glad that this wasn't permanent black marker, but dry erase so it came right off! Once again we were at Grandpas office with little supervision from mom so he decided to draw on himself! He was SOOOOOOOOOOOOO proud of himself!
