Day 205 - Sleeping In...

Daddy had to leave super early {again} this morning so I decided to take advantage of the quite house and do some laundry and downstairs cleaning. I couldn't believe my eyes when I looked at the clock and it was 8:30 a.m. and I had no babies running around! It seems like we always have somewhere to go, but not today so I decided to let the babies sleep as long as they wanted :o) Finally around 8:45, Little Pumpkin came downstairs...she usually gets up before 7! The two middle babies weren't far behind her, but Sunshine...that is a whole other story. I finally had to wake her up around 9:30...and that is probably because things were getting a bit noisy...I can only imagine what she will be like as a teenager! Ha!

This picture may not seem very significant at first glance, but if you look closer, you will be an insight into Little Pumpkin.
See that polka dot hat? She sleeps in it every night. Why? I am not quite sure. However, I do have my theories. When she takes it off after breakfast each morning, the hat takes it's place under her pillow..with two small pine cones inside.

She also LOVES to have containers with smaller items inside...hence, the teapot with small wooden pizza toppings. She also likes to have things lined up...bear, teapot, drink. Less than 10 seconds after I took this picture, she had her wheat chex lined up in a straight line.

That girls had definite ideas about how she likes things.

I don't know why Baby Boy is sitting on the table. He pretty much gets to do whatever he wants around here...I guess being the only boy has some advantages :o)

When we were at the library a few days ago, the girls each picked out a book about their birth country :o) I LOVE they have such pride in where they come from...I hope it last forever!
Thanks for the nice comments about Sweet Pea's hair! I really like it too and I am so excited it has turned out to be easy to maintain! Since we didn't leave the house today, I didn't do anything to it and it still looked good! She will go to MDO tomorrow, so I retwisted it tonight. I LOVE it!

Little Pumpkin LOVES learning about Vietnam. Right now, her favorite thing about Vietnam is that they grow lots of rice there...she LOVES looking at the pictures of the ladies/men in the rice fields picking rice :o) She always says, "When I go to Vietnam, I am going to eat lots of Vietnamese rice." Haha! That girl LOVES some rice!
