The latest

This morning, Sam put Lucy down for a nap. A few minutes later I heard her pounding on something. It was really loud so I asked Sam if he had closed her door. Of course he had so I went to her room and she was pounding on her door! That little stinker figured out how to climb out of her crib! Dangit! I guess it's time for a big girl bed.
A few weeks ago, we realized we had a leak in our water main. Fortunately, we didn't have a flood in the basement or sink holes in the yard, just water running continuously through our pipes. We got some bids for replacing the pipe then realized if we rented a mini excavator and dug it up ourselves, we could save over $1000! So Sam worked tirelessly Friday and Saturday getting it dug up. He and the kids all thought the mini excavator was a blast. In fact, Noah asked for one for Christmas!

too bad you could time your excavating around one of the boy's birthdays - that would make for a fun activity :)

p.s. i'm not ready for Luce to be in a big girl bed. in my mind, she's still 10 months old!! I hate that she's growing up without me!!

No kidding! We did have a few of the boys' friends over to share in the goodness.

oh...Jacob is ready to climb out, too. Any day now.

What Sam didn't tell you is that he asked all the contractors to inflate their costs by $1000 so that renting a mini digger would look like the best option. Anything to get to play with toys.
It reminds me of that ride from Legoland... Did you strap one of the boys in the bucket and give them a good shake and spin cycle?

Mat, one of the boys mentioned that ride from Legoland. It looks a lot like it, especially with Lucy at the controls!

That video cracked me up. Lucy sure is cute...and SUPER sneaky to climb out of her crib. Molly is probably just 6 weeks behind her. Except now she's in a port-a-crib. I wonder if that's harder or easier to climb out of?? Hope you're having a nice sunday. Lets get together and go to the park or something soon.

I thought about the lego land ride when I first saw the video, as well. SO FUNNY!
