I first took them to Arby's. I had a coupon for 3 roast beef sandwiches for $5. Forget the kid's meals, the 8 year olds ate one adult sandwich by themselves. The 5 year olds split one. They got 1 small fry to split for each age group. No scraps were left.
The little blond, 5 year old Elijah kept on talking at night when it was bed time. It's the most I've heard him talk ever. He wouldn't talk to me when he was up and moving. I threatened to call him something that he doesn't go by "Eli" if he wouldn't respond, and then he started answering me.
They attempted to go sledding at 7 in the morning. The older boys were on top of that. They got ready in a hurry. The younger boys were too busy playing with a marble track. As soon as the big boys were out the door, the little boys were in the scramble to get their stuff on to go sledding to. The idea was to keep them busy, while I was made breakfast. It didn't work to well. They were back in the house in 15 minutes.
Daddy made a pirate ship out of our new toilet box, other random boxes, and pillow cases. That kept them busy, while I made breakfast.
Nephew Evan on the lookout.
Mica posing crazy like.
My favorite because he looks so little in the ship. I just love it because he was the most into it. It was his idea to have a pirate patch. Isaak being a cute pirate.
Do you ever make things out of boxes? If you want to see more box inventions check out the boy's box apparent here, the boy's box seats here, and my favorite, the boy's coolest box spaceship here.
