Rainy Days and Hanging with Kenna

We have had more than our share of rain around here lately, which has made it difficult to get JD out to play. But boredom is the mother of invention (or something like that) and JD made up a "super fun" (his words, not mine) activity to burn up some energy.

We call it divebombing the pillows. He stacks up the pillows or lays them in front of the couch and then catapults himself onto the top pillow. He can do this for at least an hour without losing steam. My mother's instinct is to put the kabosh on this, but he is having so much fun that I hate to shut it down.

On Saturday, our niece Kenna came over to hang out with JD. JD was SOOOO excited for Kenna to come play that he got out all of his favorite toys to share with her. He actually did pretty well with sharing, but I did hear a lot of "Thank you Kenna"s, which means he was stealing toys from her and pretending like she gave them to him.

Kenna brought over her computer, so JD decided he needed his too. They both enjoyed playing "pooters" for quite awhile, trading back and forth and making lots of noise.

It was really tough to get the kids to stop playing together to get ready for bed, but when we told them they could play again in the morning, they both went to sleep pretty quickly. It is so much fun to watch them play together! It is great to have cousins so close in age!

Hamilton has been going to the door several times throughout the day and just crying, it's awful not being able to go outside for weeks! He's doing the pillow thing to but keeping it on the ground, running and diving!

I think all kids need for entertainment indoors is some pillows & blankets ... my girls can play all day with just that stuff! Of course, add in an empty box and some snacks, and you have a full out party!
