comic relief

Often times Maddie will fall asleep first so to entertain himself, Lyndon quietly goes out in the hall and reads books. This is how we found him a couple nights ago...

We went into the kids room tonight for what we thought was going to be 10 minutes of a story, a prayer and then off to bed, but we were mistaken.

It was far more fun than we ever imagined.

We literally laughed until our sides hurt for 45 minutes. Between Maddie's magic tricks and asking Jonathon if he will "pleeeeeease marry her" and Lyndon throwing a stick across the room and telling Jonathon to "fetcccch it", not to mention an out of the blue cowboy impersonation, "giiiitty up, partner!", we just couldn't catch our breath for air.

It's fun to be the parents of two mini comedians.
Maddie was in the bathtub a few nights ago. As she laid back in the water propping her head up with her hands she sighed, "Ahhhhh, this is the life." I know I keep saying this but Where the heck does she come up with these things?
We went to a birthday party for one of Maddie and Lyndon's friends yesterday. Harry Potter was the theme so each child got to paint their own wand. (such a cute and fun idea, Erin!) Lyndon doesn't have a clue about Harry Potter or what to do with a wand (even though he could easily be mistaken for a Ron Weasley) so he has since used his wand for a) a microphone b) a drum stick (although is bugs him that he doesn't have 2) c) a guitar and d) a weapon.
Lyndon found a little mini fireball candy in the pantry. He came running to me saying, "pweeeze pweeeze, open, open." I explained to him that it was really hot and would burn his mouth. I took it from him and set it on the table. The next thing I know I go in the pantry and find his mouth all red, the candy on the floor and Lyndon looking up at me saying very slow and steady, "Dis is weeelllly HOT, Dis is weeeellly HOT." Poor kid. You'd think he'd learn his lesson from this incident.

We went bowling this week with the Adam's family. (Not Uncle Fester...) The kids had a good time. I asked Maddie what her favorite part was. Her reply, "Watching the balls come up out of that machine that makes the balls." Ahhh, it's the simple stuff in life, isn't it?

This is Gina's newest edition, Issaac. I didn't think it could happen but this little butterball is even more laid back than Lyndon was. He didn't make a peep the whole time. Just sat there and watched everything that was going on. Such a cutie.
