My favorite time of the day!

As much as I love being w/ my kids all day long, my favorite time of the day is bedtime. Especially when you see this when you put them down to go visit Dreamland!

How can you NOT fall in love w/ those smiling faces? They LOVE to go to bed!

Ok, so that isn't true all the time but they have recently discovered that bedtime means they can get covered up by a blanket & read a book. Often times, I go back up after about 30 minutes to see if they are still awake & find Ian has fallen asleep just like I tucked him in. Of the 3, I think he would be ready to go to a toddler bed BUT since there are 3 of them in 1 room, we are holding off on that idea for quite some time.

Then there is "me" time or couple time. Todd & I eat after the kids go to bed. Since they still have their dinner at 4, it just makes it more convenient & honestly, I cherish the time together. Since he wakes up so early, he often goes to sleep right after we eat. Our time together is precious.

These pictures are great!! It's funny because I took the exact same pictures of my boys yesterday. I only have two that will lie down and my third still likes to sit up and read. I will probably be posting the pics by the end of the week. My guys love to go to bed as well! Happy New Year to you and your family!!
