Rainy Days





We actually got some rain yesterday and last night. It was wonderful! Now we have nice cool temps, which if you know me at all, makes me a very happy girl. Monday morning we didn't have to go anywhere (which is rare) so the kids wanted to play in the "mud peddles" as Reese calls them. Off they went jumping and bouncing and having fun. The thunderstorms started again last night right before bedtime, so BOTH kids got to sleep with me - Jeff was out west. We have rules at our house about them sleeping in our bed, and they are:

#1) they must be sick OR
#2) it has to be thundering.

Reese was quick to point out the thunder when she heard the slightest rumble. It used to be just Reese that was scared of thunder, but Mason will join in on any excuse to sleep with me, so he got to snuggle up too. Surprisingly, we all got a good night's rest! There is nothing better than waking up to your warm, snuggly kiddos in the morning. Oh, except for waking up next to you, Jeff, of course! ;-) hee hee!

That looked like so much fun! Mud Peddles are the best.

I have woken up to kiddos before, but never Jeff. Maybe we could all try that sometime. :)
