Just as an explanation, long ago, I started shorthanding our family groups in my journal. Gary and Leah are J2, Jared, I and the kids are J6 (we were J5 when I started this!) and Aaron, Shauna, Nora and Everly are the REAL J4. I also have referred to them as ASEN, their initials. Just something fun.
I didn't drag my camera with me today, and my phone's memory is pretty full, so I didn't take many pictures today. And that's ok! It was a day of resting, pondering, and quiet.
|The Red Rider BB Gun movie house! Did you know, they filmed it in the summer or fall and had to make fake snow for it?|
|Hm,...I wonder who got the chance to dress up in the pink bunny suit?|
|All dressed up. Benaiah, Grandpa Johnson, Justin, and cousin Zion.|
|It was a very early morning, like 6 am early, which meant we were up at 5 making sure they were ready.|
|I didn't capture the right picture, BUT, this was a very long hot dog from a meat market (1 ft long maybe?) and Abishai grabbed it with both hands and took a bite out of the middle. It was a funny sight. He was also dancing on the stool.|
|Abishai was the one who purposefully draped his blanket over his head in a way that he couldn't tell where he was going.|
|Getting bigger, and these naptimes are getting more rare. I know it's one of Jared's favorite things to do with the kids, snuggle at naptime.|
|Let's play, doggy! But doggy was already tired.|
|Abishai loves Socks a lot, and will give him sticks, throws toys for him, and pat him and hug him a ton.|
|I think Abishai misses Socks and Socks misses Abishai and the rest of the family.|
|Jared said, "It doesn't get any better than this: Watching Olympics on a huge screen with two of my babies in my lap." It won't be long until Keturah outgrows his lap though! Good thing there's little Abishai for a few more years at least.|
