Work Hard Then Play

Yesterday I walked into the living room to find this:  Landen hard at work.  Under normal circumstances, this would not be permitted, but he looked so serious and was trying so hard, I raced to find the camera instead before I lost my shot!  And, as you can see, he was content being a willing subject for my pictures (probably because we never let him play with the computer!).  As I was clicking away, he was being hilarious!  You can totally tell he's seen Jon or I playing on the computer - he knew what he was doing!

This was before he knew I saw him... "Ok, now, where is that power button?"


"You're gonna just LET me play this time?!"  Giddiness!

"Facebook!  Type a little here... a little there!"

"This is good... I got it..."

"Adjust the screen a little..."

"And push these buttons..."

"Yep, I got this... know what I'm doing..."

"Ohhhh yeah... Mom, I got this... really... you act like I'm two and have crumbs all over my face or something..."
Silly boy!  And then shortly after, I found this (really I don't leave him alone that much, but as soon as I leave the room, I can guarantee this boy is scoping out things he's not supposed to do).
So, exhibit two: dancing on the table (Dang!  Twice in one day I should have scolded him and twice I grabbed the camera instead.  Encouraging him to do these bad things?  Probably!  - Back to business tomorrow!)

And then Grandmommy came over!  Hooray!  And, along with Grandmommy came her birthday present for Landen - a new bike!  He LOVED this bike!  It is just his size and will be perfect when the snow melts and spring decides to come along (any time now!). 

And this is what the kids do when Grandmommy comes over.  They gather around her and want to be close.  Even if they haven't been able to see her in a while, they love and trust and instinctively want to be with  her and tell her their funny stories and ask her to read books... 

And she does.

It has been a wonderful weekend of fun and being together - and it's only Saturday!  So glad there's still one more day before we go back at it again.

I hope you're having a great weekend, too!

So sweet! I love that Emerson is in one of the table shots holding Landen's hand. What a sweetie. Love all the pictures. So fun! Thanks for sharing.

Thanks, Jessica! Good eye! That IS Emerson's hand, and yep, she's always trying to mother him - which is so helpful most of the time, and sometimes not, but I love her heart! :)
