Taking our turn with 3 or even 6

Last night we had our friend Kyle and his kids over for dinner.  Kyle and his wife Erin are in our small group and go to church with us.  Erin has been in the Bahamas this past week, she was supposed to come home Thursday but Hurricane Sandy blew in and she has been stuck.  The earliest she can get home is tomorrow and that isn't certain.  We thought we would give Kyle a break and have them all over for pizza and help entertain the kids. 
 
 The kids had a blast!
We took our aggression out on the kids by having a ball fight.  It's what we do to keep our sanity.   
 Erin & Kyle have 4 kids between 1 and 7.  6 under the age 7, it was a fun night.


Today was one Saturday sandwiched between 5 that Steve & I were both going to be home together.  We took it easy and played at home most of the day.  This evening we took our shot at what it would be like with three kids.  
 
Our student minister and his wife, who are also in our small group, had a baby last month and have no family close by so we offered to watch him for a couple hours while they got dinner just the two of them.  He's such a little cutie!!!  I loved getting some newborn love, especially when I know I get a full night sleep.   Three kids wasn't too bad, of course it was only for 2 hours.

FUN! I saw Erin's mom out at breakfast Saturday morning and she was telling me how she was stuck. Poor Kyle. Too sweet of you for having them over. And I could so see you guys with 3. :)

Am I the only one who thinks all the kids business is nonsense? Really? :)
And I think Steve looks like a teeny bit afraid...can't say I blame him... poor guy. ;)

Don't listen to that nay sayer Jaime Mac. :)
You would love a third, especially a girl. My third is the best baby we have had yet.
