Can I share something sweet with you?

This was the morning of Alexa's birthday. She had already finished eating breakfast and I was running around trying to get her costume and treats packed up for school. I must have been in her room and I came out and saw this:

She had pulled one of her little chairs in front of Braden and was reading him a book while he was eating. I seriously thought is was the cutest thing I had ever seen! I am so happy they have one another. They can have their moments but it's amazing how much they truly love each other.

P.S. Please ignore the awful High Life door mat. NO this is not ours. Matt had bought it for the hunting shack and thought it would be funny to put it in front of our door knowing I would think it was stupid. :)

Also, can you tell our house looks like Alexa's room threw up balloons everywhere!? I have been tripping over them constantly since Monday but I don't have the heart to pop them all yet because they love playing in them.

I hope everyone has a Happy Halloween! :)
(Pictures to come...of course.)

that is so sweet. It is so fun to watch our children interact with each other and catch them in these special moments.

I remember when Stunt Man was little...Actress would read to him all the time. So so sweet. Every now and then I will catch one of them reading to him. IT is so sweet. He looks like he is loving it and she is doing a great job being the teacher.
