No big boys

My lovely sister in law volunteered to take my big boys off my hands for the evening. SO, Jared and I are here with just 3 little ones. You like that? JUST 3! I know some people would be overwhelmed with the thought of having 3 but let me tell you, take even one out of the mix and it's like a whole different family. We're having some fun. Tucker and I have a cake in the oven and Brennen and Jared are playing. Tanner's being a terd so he's in a time out but I'm hoping the rest of the day will go swimmingly.

Jon and Jake I'm sure are having a great time. Jake loves to bbq with his uncle and Jon loves baking so tonight, Jake will be manning the grill and Jon is going to whip up a batch of chocolate cookie dough that they are making into homemade ice cream. I would be jealous except for the fact that we're having a fabulous coconut blizzard cake here.

What are you all doing this weekend?

I know exactly what you mean by taking one of the kids out of the mix and it being a whole diffent family.
I love that when it happens. Except when one is gone overnight.

Oh, and as far as what I am doing this weekend...

NOTHING. I'm sick. Angel has all of the kids with him at his uncles to give me some space.

Sounds pretty relaxing! Glad to hear you're having a bit of a break.
As for the weekend, today was just cleaning house and tomorrow we're having a surprise birthday for my mom! Hopefully she'll be surprised!

Isn't it amazing how when the older kids are gone (or even just one) the whole dynamic of the family is different? And there is way less fighting? :)

I'm glad you got a little break!
