The Sleepover

Danny's birthday was yesterday. These pictures were taken on Easter at my Mom's--she of course had a cake for him:) Yesterday too, she brought a cake! I am just being lazy and not downloading the new pictures. I will. Auntie Lisa stopped by yesterday with a gift, one of them being a Star Wars lego set. We had decent weather yesterday so the kids were able to be outside when they got home from school. As soon as they were in, Danny set to work putting it together and finished. He cracks me up how much he still loves legos:) I felt bad with both cakes--he had no chance to blow out the candles with Edward and JiaLi around;) The kids do have sleepovers at friends and cousins but whenever the weekend is here they are always asking to have a sleepover in one of their rooms. Friday night we gave in. We had such a nice night coloring eggs and I think we were in a good mood so we let them all sleep in Joseph's and Edward's room. As you can see, JiaLi was thrilled. Speaking of prayers, JiaLi said something adorable last night during prayers. Every once in a while with prayers, I have the kids say what they are thankful for. I don't do it every night because I like to catch them when they are not expecting me to ask. Of course, they always wonder. Last night was a night. JiaLi responded "I am thankful for kids because without kids Mommy and Daddy wouldn't be happy." I also like the kids to say why they are thankful for what they have said. The kids add so much happiness to our lives. They are such a dream come true:) When in a room with Jenise, JiaLi does keep her shirt on. The boys like to copy Daddy and sleep with no shirt. (Joseph did not this night because he ended up sick--a quick stomach thing.) JiaLi of course, had to join in. Luckily Jenise outgrew this;)
