Nothing to do...

With all the packing and unpacking we've realized that our kids really haven't been getting a ton of quality attention from us lately... sure, we pay attention to them and they're certainly not neglected or abused- but they really aren't use to all this running around and uncertainty.  So tonight we decided to stop with the unpacking/rearranging and just focus on family... and the kids had a pretty good time.  Though in all honesty it wasn't as lovey dovey as I originally intended- both boys complained about the others' movie selection and neither could agree on where we actually watched the movie... so to avoid further fighting we had one movie on in the bedroom and the other on in the loft... but thankfully Zac wasn't too into his movie so we all ended up in the loft anyway- which is when the boys started ganging up on Damien.  After a relatively nice evening we put the kids to bed at their normal bedtime- which hasn't happened in over a week... and needless to say, neither actually fell asleep until right around 9pm- which is insanely late for them.  But all in all, it was a nice evening... I'm really looking forward to the next few weeks when we've completely emptied the other house/garage and completely unpacked this house.  I'm a big fan of our normal "boring" lives ;-)

This picture below cracks me up... Zachary has been OBSESSED with our windows in this house- absolutely, 100%, obsessed.  He wakes up in the morning and runs into our bedroom to look out the window... and when we're in the loft he's straining to look out this window.  And then we realized why... in the house that he's grown up in, we had absolutely no windows that he could look out of!  All our windows were higher up- and the patio door downstairs only looked into our backyard, which (surprisingly enough) isn't very exciting!  So this boy is in heaven being able to see all the birds, the rain, the trees, and his favorite by far- the garbage cans (seriously, he lives for garbage day).
