Moustache v. Monogram

Well, this is something that doesn't happen too often - Sam slept in my bed.  And let me say, he is the perfect bed fellow.  When Finn sleeps with me every square inch of his body is plastered to mine and we both sleep on the same pillow.  It is sweet, but a bit intrusive.  Sam, on the other hand slept on his own pillow and didn't throw one appendage over me.  I slept great!  Typically we don't allow the boys to sleep in our bed, but when Michael is out of town, I let Finn sleep with me.   Sam never seems to mind because he sleeps like a log and never knows that Finn slept with me.  Well last night as I was taking Sam to the bathroom, I made a split second decision to let him sleep with me instead.

This week is Spirit Week at School.  The first day was "Moustache v. Monogram.  Both of my children decided on the mustache.  Sam opted for the 1940s mustache, while Finn went with the Fu Manchu. 

I told him to pose for me and this what he came up with. He nailed it (above)!

They both really enjoyed this day.  Sam couldn't stop looking at himself in the mirror. 

Sam felt that his moustache needed a little "Roman Reigns." 

This is my favorite picture of Sam.  He makes me think of the "Pink Panther."

You may notice that Finn is in plain clothes.  If you participate in Spirit Week, you don't have to wear your uniform. 

The rest of the day was pretty quiet, other than the fact that I accidentally fell asleep holding hot coffee and spilled it on myself.  Not pleasant.

Finn and Sam give Will absolutely NO personal space whatsoever.  They are always in face yelling and grabbing on him.  For a few minutes he will tolerate it.

Then he gets mad and starts swinging those arms.  I have warned both boys that they deserve whatever Will dishes out. 

Last Thursday was Finn's field day.  He wasn't too excited about it because he didn't get to participate at all.  He was even more upset by the fact that he only came home with a "participants" ribbon.  I guess Finn expected to get a ribbon for "Best Score Keeper."

Gatlinburg 2.0

In mid-June Finn and Sam accompanied Grandad and Gigi to Gatlinburg.  This is their second annual trip so will refer to it as Gatlinburg 2.0. Michael, Will and I were at home, so outside of some awesome pictures and few sweet phone calls, we don't have a great deal of knowledge about the trip. What I do know is that the trip started with hot Kristy Kremes.  Upon arriving in Gatlinburg, Finn asked if the "hot sign" was on.  Seeing that it was, they stopped in for donuts.

They also went back to Clingman's Dome.  They went last year, but I didn't pack long pants and jackets so they were pretty chilly.  It was also really foggy last year.  This year went as planned; the air was clear and the boys were warm.

One of my favorites!

Another favorite.

And . . . another favorite.

They went to Dollywood later than evening and then again the next day.

It amazes me how pop culture "savy" kids are at 5.  I was never that "in the loop."

Surprise sickness

When I picked Will up from daycare yesterday, I was informed that several babies had gone home throwing up.  Thirty minutes later - Will threw up too - in the car! It was so gross and so smelly.  The boys were really upset. For a minute, I thought they would throw up from the smell.  Luckily, we were on our way to the dentist so they quickly forgot about Will's vomit and started panicking about the dentist.  You see, I had kept this little tidbit from them until right before time to go.  This spared me days of whining.

Oh, and Will just started eating carrots.  That is why he is orange. 
When he got to the dentist's office I took Will in to change him.  When I pulled his only spare outfit out of the diaper bag I notice that the "do not steal me" hard, plastic tag was still attached.  Perfect.  I decided that he would just wear nothing.  So he sat in my lap, wearing nothing but his diaper all while throwing up into a baby blanket.  It was a make it work moment.  And o…
