Hilarity

Sunday was a relaxing day, and I just had to share with you pictures of how we ended our evening. Kane has "Bam Trucks," which are little monster trucks, the term for which comes from the days of my nephew's childhood. Most of them you pull back then let go and they run, but there are a couple that will crank up forward, gaining more speed the more you crank them, and they really go flying. Which is exactly what Adam was doing. And it CRACKED...

KANE...
UP!!!
Adam would crank up the Bam Truck to an insane speed...
then let it go out of Kane's and Max's room... and it would speed away to jog off of the door frame of another room, or kick off the gate into the bathroom. Or even better was when it would hit a door frame and flip over on its side, flying all over the place with the wheels still spinning. Once it was spinning wildly behind our bedroon door, throwing out pages of My Little Pony stickers that Bella had stashed there. Maxwell would run, or crawl, off to find where it had finally stopped,
and bring it back every time, with theatrics.
Our little retriever.
Then he would plop down and get ready for the next run. The anticipation was nearly unbearable.
Kane had crazy hiccups by the end, and it was just generally a blast had by all. Now I am off to get some sleep and prepare for our big day, as tomorrow the kids will get the chicken pox. Yes, it was an intentional exposure. And for those who think I'm crazy, getting the virus means life-long immunity, whereas the vaccination (if we got vaccinations) only lasts 10 years and doesn't ensure you won't get it anyway. So we went to a Pox Party and shared a juice box, and we will get them tomorrow. I would much rather know we're getting them and be prepared, and know that my kids, especially Bella, will be spared from complications getting the virus later on in life. So, with that said, I'm off to sleep, to wake up to pox and get ready for the days of healing ahead. Good day to you!

I love these pictures! I love it how they are blurry because even if you could get lucky and have the guys hold still for a minute the shots would still be blurry because you yourself were laughing so hard. The look on Kane's face makes me giggle. And sweet Max. I love them all!

darn.. I haven't been able to expose my kiddos to chicken pox. I've tried but it's never worked out. hope all goes well. I'll probably have to vaccinate our children eventually.
