This is the rascal it was intended for! He tried his hardest to 'squeeze' the toys out. Finally he gave up and tossed it aside. The older kids quickly scooped it up; keeping them entertained for ages; then John wanted it back :) Thank You Lana!

Checking his path....
Well, I guess I'll have to pick up my friends in the van - better start clearing it off! Friends, beware, Benji is on his way to pick you up! :-)
(Yes, he is using a mop to wipe off the windows. It's the one Daddy uses to wash the semi with!)
Now off to catch up on everything I left slide while being sick! Daddy is home again today, which makes things better & worse all at the same time! :)

One by one every animal was lifted up by the mighty eagles to the 'pile'. I didn't realize eagles were so strong, they could lift things about 5 times as big as themselves. But Jacob & Benji don't just play with 'ordinary' eagles! :)

Saturday was GORGEOUS! Sunny, Warm, (well, high 30's-low 40's) so they literally spent all day outside. When the kids were inside they spent the time reading books, playing play-doh, snuggling and wearing out G'pa, G'ma & Jess.
After a lazy Sunday, they headed back home late afternoon. We had tons of left overs so we invited Joe, Heather & kids over for supper. The kids had a blast playing together with all the new toys, and the big kids... well :) we always have a good time!
I have over 100 pictures from the weekend, no joke! So after I sort through them, I'll put some up, probably in a slide show!
We're having a 'Monday'. We woke up to the news that Benjamin's Grandpa past away, at the age of 93. It's cloudy and drizzly, the house needs a major 'clean-over' from the weekend, the kids are over-tired from all the excitement and full days... But we'll survive!! Oh, yes, I also got stuck for a moment in Heather's driveway this morning.. ;0 This is the last place I should be right now, but I'm taking a much needed break! Not sure what the week will hold; but I promise I will get pictures up from this weekend at some point!

- Is today Friday?
- Oh, is G'pa here?
- No, he is coming after work.
- Well, is G'ma here yet?
- No, G'ma and Jess will ride in the car with G'pa after everyone is done working.
- After we eat supper, you can call G'ma and see where they are.
- Yeah, I WILL. It sure takes them a loong time to work.
- So now they keep saying; after it gets dark, we'll eat supper, call G'pa & G'ma, then they will come in the house.
Yes, they are slightly excited! We're having a party for Carolyn this weekend with them. (yes another castle cake- this time I'm not sure how it will work. A little mouse, (Katie) took a huge chunk off of the cake while it was cooling! I think we'll have a much smaller castle than planned) The weather is suppose to be great too! 30's, maybe 40's! I realize for some reading this, that may not sound too great. But after a month of below zeros temps.. this is a heat wave! I have a feeling we'll be outside most of the weekend, hope G'pa, G'ma & Jess remember their snow clothes :)
Here are some pics to hold you over until next week!
I found a princess dress clearanced out at Walmart; not sure why, but I didn't stop to ask.
Katie: princess dress, black 'harley' boots, riding 4-wheeler with her baby frog!

Jacob & Emily ended up staying over Sunday night after Carolyn's party. I didn't get pictures of the girls, but Benji & Jacob spent ALOT of time with the train.
Meet Mr. Frog! He is a chair with a sleeping bag stuff inside his zippered mouth! After a hard days work (play) Benji loves to snuggle inside!
P.S. One more day till Friday!! Monday night the kids overheard that G'pa, G'ma and Aunt Jess were coming on Friday to celebrate Carolyn's birthday! It's better they DON'T know until much later in the week, like Thursday, otherwise we have a loooong week of waiting! On Friday we are watching Larissa & Wyatt in the morning, then its finally time for G'pa, G'ma & Aunt Jess! So this will be our last post for the week. Check back next week for pictures!
