I was finally able to organize a play afternoon with some of Tyler's pals from school. Declan and Payton came over and I was a little nervous--when other kids are here my boys become wild men. And I usually can't deal with all the ruckus.

Little did I know that having two sweet kids visit would make all the difference! They played "family" for hours; taking turns being the mom and dad.
I laughed endlessly at their arguments, where do they get this stuff??? "Mom" and "Dad" bickered continually about whose turn it was to go to work, and who had to stay home and take care of the "baby." There was a lot of hand-holding as they walked from room to room. At one point Payton had on a cowboy hat, Tyler had a wig on, and Declan had a fake mustache on.

|Pre-carving. They were drawing pictures on the pumpkins so that I could carve them.|
