We came back to the camper for lunch and naps, so they got a good nap in. Joel slept almost three hours! Janine and I had to run to the store for a few groceries, and I was able to get a couple loads of laundry done!
Tomorrow is our last day at Disneyland and we head to Vegas Sunday! I probably won't update tomorrow....being our last day here and all. Going to take it all in and play with my boys!
Wish you grandparents could be here, too. These boys are having a blast!!!

My little men are pooped as you can see. Their daddy just won't give them a break. And they're loving every minute of it. In fact, as we were leaving the last ride of the night Joel was crying to ride it again. He got over it- before we left the park even- he was passed plum out! Then, just as we left the gate (for our [never ending] 1.2 mile walk back :-/) Justin told Janine daddy was mean 'cause he wouldn't let them ride more rides; if they only knew!....Seriously, I think Kyle could stay 48 straight hours. He's a machine when it comes to Disney parks, I tell ya'!
OK. Well, everyone is passed out but me.

I hope they were a ray of sunshine for someone.....besides us. :-/ I heard lots of people passing by that thought they were so adorable.....because they are.
Joel was too little for the Sorin Over California ride and I had to sit out with him (probably a good thing because he fell asleep) while Kyle, Janine and Jim rode with Johnny and Justin. Luckily, they have this parent swap thing and I got to walk right on when they got back.

This picture does not do justice.
As I'm typing this we just passed a mountain with a cross on top. Johnny gasped and his eyes got really big as he asked, "Is that where Jesus died?" Guess a little geography lesson is do when we get home, but it makes my heart proud that that's the first thing my little blessing thought of.

This afternoon, I was talking to a friend who's also a stay at home mom- with two little boys. We talked about the things we used to do- before having kids, and how life has changed since having them; There are good days and bad days.
This week Johnny has been somewhat, ummm, I guess I would say a challenge. His attitude (and mine) has been foul and unpleasing to our Lord. We've been at each others throats, so to speak. I pray for each of my little guys daily. But I've especially prayed over Johnny and with Johnny all week. Even through the course of this week I'm thankful to be able to stay home with my little blessings! I will have to say, there are times when I have to remind myself of that. This book I've just started reading Mission to Motherhood by Sally Clarkson is just that- a reminder. Only a few chapters in and already it's an eyeopener! Can't wait to finish it!
I'll blog about it when I'm done.
Have a good week end!!

That's because this was left behind.
Here we are before.
Here he is getting ready for Dr. Gully to cut it out- he's going to give Johnny a shot first to deaden it, and Johnny was so mad; definitely doesn't take pain very well....can't say that I blame him! Mama Jean went with me because she knew it was going to take many people to hold this strong little toot down. Boy was she right! I had to lay on his chest and hold his arms. Mama Jean had his good leg while the nurse attempted to hold his splintered leg. After a minute of screaming and fighting, the nurse finally got a good hold on him and put all of her body weight into holding that leg still so the doctor could give him the shot.
After the shot and he figured out that it didn't hurt anymore, he wanted to sit up and watch as the doctor cut in to him. This was just after Dr. Gully got it out and Johnny watched the whole thing. Maybe got a doctor on my hand, huh?!? After it was all said and done, Uncle Tony had slipped Mama Jean some money to take the [brave] boy to sonic for ice cream. Wish I would have taken a picture of him enjoying his Oreo Sonic blast! Thank you Uncle Tony!
