My favorite time of day!

We all have a moment in the day that is our absolute favorite. Mine is the time when Aaron and I say "are you ready for bed". We usually try to go to bed at the same time. We head upstairs and he or I will say ooooo I am going to see the babies. We sneak into the babies room and quietly stare and them, cover them up or rub their face. Sometimes one will start to move and we quickly rush out laughing. A few times Lily has popped her head up as soon as the door opens but we close it and go about our business hoping she will think it's a dream. I head down the hall and check on Ashley too cover her up, kick up the heat or make sure her alarm is set. We do this routine before bed on most nights and it is by far my most favorite time of the day!

What is yours?

That is so sweet - I'd have to say that without kids... mine is riding in the car with John. Now that we carpool... it's like our time to hang out without distractions. We hold hands and chat... it's lovely.

You have a sweet routine with the kids.

Well, my favorite time of day is when my husband come back from work because he help me with the girls.

That is a great story. We don't dare step foot in Kiera's room because she will wake up and she will not back to sleep (in her bed anyway!)

My favorite time of day doesn't happen everyday, but when Kevin comes home from a four day. He will call me when he is close. I turn on classical music, light a candle and go with Kiera outside to wait for him. She LOVES this. We see him turn down our street and she gets all excited. He pulls in our driveway (all smiles of course) and rolls down the passenger window. I pass Kiera through the window and she rides up the driveway with him all the while chatting. It is sooooo sweet and it warms my hear!

BTW, your card looks awesome!!! What is the blue background behind your ribbon...paper or ribbon?

I love the end of the day, after story time, when the boys and I cuddle for prayers. Hearing them pray in their little voices melts my heart!

My favorite time of the day is when the boys are napping and the instant they hear their fathers' key turn in the lock both heads pop up and both sets of eyes open wide and it's time for all the guys in my house to wrestle and play and hoot with giggles and laughter...they love their dad. It's beautiful to watch.

So sweet Staci. I have to agree with Jenn, We dont dare step foot in Katharines room.. Jakob on the other hand could sleep through a hurricane(and has.) My favorite time of day is when Daddy comes home. When the weather is nice we go out about 10 mins before he gets home and run around out in the front yard. As soon as he comes around the corner and they spot his car they loose all control. I love seeing the excitement in their eyes. Once Daddy pulls into the driveway(I am holding them back by this point) And he opens the door I let the wild things rush him. They scream in their little voices "DADDY" With such love. And he scoops them both up in his arms and loves on them.. Aww.. Melts my heart!

I bet that Ashley really loves that you told the entire internet that you tuck her in still! hehehe... Mine is definitely after the kids are in bed and before we turn in for the night. It's great to spend a few hours just hanging out with my best friend watching tv and chatting away.
