Time for a redo.

Since Karson has moved out of his crib and into his big boy bed there has been many sleepless nights in the Johnson home. And seeing as though no one was sleeping anyways, I decided to add to the chaos and move the boys into the same room. This last weekend we decided to redo their room and make it a fun place for them. We spent the weekend painting and getting lots of help from two little boys. After many coats of paint and a lot of "help" we finally finished the room. The boys love their new room and enjoy hanging out in their special spot in our house. Now if I can just find a way to get them to stay asleep in the middle of the night!

Snow and Goblins.

There are many things in life that come at us, although they might be expected, we are unprepared non the less. Two things have came at me this past week that I am just not ready for.

First things first: Wednesday was the first day of snow. Yes yes I do know that I live in Idaho and yes I also know that time of year is coming. But snow in September already. So when I saw the snow coming down, I thought to myself "it's okay it will be gone in no time". The snow melted and it was gone, but then it came again, and again, and is snowing outside right now. It is a whopping 39 degrees outside as I sit here typing. Where did fall go? I am just not ready for snow, or this freezing cold weather. I went to get the boys boots out because of course they wanted to play in it, only to find that they don't fit. Guess this week I better go boot shopping!

Second on the list: October first rolls around and I find that I have a goblin in my home. A goblin that can now climb out of his crib. Although I knew that I couldn't keep him in his crib forever I was just not ready for this. He wont go to sleep at night and in the middle of the night is costantly trying to get in our bed. Good bye sleep! Last night we set up his toddler bed for him, he wasn't enthused and getting him to sleep was a nightmare. Once we did get him to bed he at least slept in it till 5:00am but then was in our bed moving around the rest of the morning. I am keeping my fingers crossed that with time and patience it will get better and I will get some sleep again. Good thing he is so cute, and easy to forgive! :)

This last weekend we spent some time in Island Park. It was a great time as always. Saturday was a beautiful fall day. (Okay so we did have at least one nice fall day.) Justin got brave and took the boys on a canoe ride. They loved it. I enjoyed the beautiful scenery and went for a walk. The next day we woke to snow on the ground and a blizzard outside. Crazy how quickly things can change. I guess that is the moral of the story, you just got to Row with the punches. No matter what life throws you!
