diapers, dynamic duos, and delicacies

Have you ever noticed that life can go from mundane to madness at an alarming rate? That has been our weekend, but I have to say that it has been all good.

Starting on Thursday, we have had our friends' two boys until tomorrow morning. They are enjoying Rome as I type and as their little ones are fast asleep.

I've been changing this little guy's diapers. It's like riding a bicycle. Even though I haven't done that in 6+ years, it all came back to me very quickly.

Here he is with his big brother and right after a 2 hour nap. Naps are good.

As if having two extra kids in the house isn't enough, we also celebrated Grant and Cooper's birthdays yesterday. The theme we were going with was some sort of "Superhero" dress up party. I asked them to wear anything they already had and this is what they all came up with. It was a blast!

And if having 2 extra kids in the house for almost 4 days, plus throwing a party for soon-to-be 8 year olds doesn't quite keep us busy enough, how about cooking a major Thanksgiving feast to feed the masses? Maybe we should throw in putting the Christmas tree up and stringing the lights. Hmm... my husband did that after we ate.

Now we're onto finishing the tree and decorating the house...

That's what we did. God blessed it all, and now I need to get to bed! 'Night everyone.

Oh, how 'bout those crazy santa hats on our new header? I know... lame.

Wow that almost sounds like a weekend in our house! Once you have 5 kids what's adding two more right!! :) I say that when my nephews want to come and spend the night. I try to stay Thankful that all of the things that keep me busy are there because I know that all to soo I'm going to miss these days and as much as I look forward to spending time with just my husband. I know all to well that I'm gonna miss these times of being busy someday.

I think the header and the blog design is adorable!!! You're so brave - I applaud your babysitting efforts! That little one is adorable.

Darcie said... can get very busy on a dime. Looks like you have been one super busy lady! I am going to guess it will stay that way for just a bit. Sometimes I tell myself to enjoy the maddness...other times I just want to take one long nap until the maddness is over. :-)

Sounds like a boat load of fun to me. I remember keeping my friends' children when they would travel... back when we didn't have so many. It was always such a blast. We had one friend who had five and twin boys. I loved to keep their family. It is funny to think what a big deal that was and now here we are seven and it doesn't seem like anything. Funny how your perspective changes, isn't it.
