Creepy, Crawly Friends!

For the last couple of weeks, as soon as Christian gets home from work, Carson quizzes him about all the animals he has seen at work that day. The usual answers include mice, deer, turkeys, horses, cows, and bugs. Because of Carson's sudden interest in what Christian sees, Christian thought it would be fun to bring some of the things home that he encounters at work. One day he brought home a big nasty spider that makes me cringe just thinking about it. I didn't get a picture of him because he was gross. A couple of days later, he brought home this little guy: The boys loved the frog and didn't really want to let him go. Another day, we met this guy: He's the biggest praying mantis we have seen yet! He was pretty cool too. Carson still asks Christian if he has any "surprizes" for him when he gets home from work each day in hopes that his dad has a new creep, crawly friend!


In other news this week, we went and picked sweet corn from one of the families that Christian works with to freeze. We are very grateful to have such nice friends!


One day this week, the boys went through ALL the toys in Carson's toybox. It kept them occupied and quite quiet for like an hour, so I was ok with the mess at the end. They discovered some toys they hadn't played with in a while...it was like Christmas again! One of the things Travis found was a set of musical drum sticks. He even made his own drums to play on...too cute!!

Love it! It must be a common interest among 4 year old boys! Blake has taken a new interest in creepy crawlies too... YUCK! But fun for your boys!
BTW- Love your new family picture at the top of your blog! You look fabulous (as usual)!
