Instead of Church...

We sluffed church for a few reasons today: runny noses that were like a faucet that wouldn't turn off, my work (trying to get 2 confused elderly patients up and ready does not go quickly), and nonstop coughing from half of our kids. So, instead we built a fort. The kids loved it and I think Trent loved it even more!
I really don't know how Trent can actually fall asleep with the noise that is our children. It amazes me...and frustrates me. I wish I could sleep through the stuff he does. One of my famous quotes that I stole from a classic movie-"I just want to get some sleep!" Guess the movie???

Another Stakeout??

Seriously, how is Trent sleeping? Cute pictures, I love how they are all lined up!

What a fun day! I think it's nice to sluff church every once in a while... I'm sure all the moms in your ward with kids in the nursery appreciated that you did too...double bonus!

Nice! I love it. Sometimes sluffing church is necessary.

I think you guys already have a free pass to walk right through those Golden Gates!! I can't belive that Trent fell asleep. That is an amazing talent. Love that you decided to make a fort.

Forts and blanket tents are the best!!! My kids love them too!

I just google searched the quote so I could guess the movie and your blog came up as an option. Pretty funny!!
I love the lined up picture too, how great your kids are to line up and sit still like that.
The girl on the end of my Twilight movie picture's name is Marie. I don't know her maiden name but her married name is Peck.

Haha, how cute! That's funny Trent fell asleep in the fort! Ryan is the same way, he could sleep anywhere, and he falls asleep about one second after he lays down. I wish I could do that! I always have to read or something first.

I'm with Heidi - Free Pass to Heaven. Church is totally optional for you guys at this point.

I love the group shot (Oakley looks so cute laughing with the boys) - and then Trent's feet sticking out below them!
