Bad Boys Bad Boys Whatcha Gonna do...

Last night was Asher's first official boys night. It involved a lot of eating and running and wrestling. Poop jokes were abundant and girls were bashed. It was a pretty awesome night. 

 This picture makes me smile so much. It's so them. Bennett is being silly, Brody is acting tough, Noa is always up for a good pose, and Asher can't be bothered to look at the camera when there is scootering to be done.
 After the boys polished off a lot of pizza they took turns on the scooters. I took Asher to get a special snack the other day and he picked out s'mores goldfish. Apparently it was a good choice.
It wouldn't have been a boys night without a few games of Mario. I think they finally went to sleep around 9:30. They all flew down the stairs at about 5:45 this morning (I'm just gonna guess that there are some tired boys out there right now).

Here are a few of my favorite lines from these guys:

Asher (upon seeing a preview for Cinderella): I hate princesses
Brody: Me too
Bennett: They are the worst

Bennett (to Brody who didn't want to share): You make me so angry that I want to mash a potato in your mouth


  1. SO FUN!!! You really are my hero!

  2. Boys are so much fun to listen to and to watch!! :)

  3. oops, that was me, L

  4. Oops. That was Easten, not Micah

  5. The first picture of the 4 together is such a classic.... and I love Bennetts mash a potato in your mouth comment....very effectively put, and I'm sitting here trying to think of how he would actually do that :-). I love that Bennett understood that he was angry. What I would love little boys to do (and probably rarely happens) when they get angry is to express it, and maybe say what they feel like doing but then say, "But I won't do that because I should do to others what I want them to do to me" or "but God wants me to not be angry...not get revenge...and to forgive." Something along that line. We can dream!

  6. Ally ?!? It's Jill, Nicky Z's almost- mommy. I cannot believe your wonderful comment to me. I thought you were a spammer ... please forgive me. Your email address doesn't seem to work. Have another one? THANK YOU FOR praying ... I'm pretty speechless..
