How I long for sleep...

I would have been totally okay, with today being considered a snow day!  Our little angel A, decided she wanted to be entertained last night around 11:00.   After about two hours of her fusing, and not getting what she wanted from her daddy, I finally dragged myself out of my warm bed, to give my husband a break from our screaming daughter.  Yes, I said screaming, at 1:00 in the morning.  She pretty much went right to sleep once I took her from her daddy.   But then, the little man decided it was time for him to get up and cry a little too.  Why should sissy get all the attention, right.  True story…  So, we bring him into our bedroom, thinking we will put on some Curious George, and let M fall asleep watching George.  No, not so much.  He watched George, and then when it was over he wanted to come out to the living room to sleep.  M will not sleep in our bed.  And I refuse to sleep on the couch.  So, that left daddy to go sleep with M on the couch at 4:00 this morning.  As you can see, it was a very long night at our house, and I seriously long, for some sleep.  Hopefully tonight, the kiddos will stay asleep.  But, while uploading pictures to the computer, I found these of A last night when she was with her daddy:

Yes sweetie, it is 11:00 at night…

Why aren’t you asleep!?!

I see, you just wanted your picture taken…  We are all more photogenic in the middle of the night…
I need your cute little butt, to stay asleep until 7:30 or 8:00
 in the morning, okay…

When I got home today, my husband told me he finally
 finished the tree in A's room, I was so excited, here are a few
 pictures.  You will see, my husband had a little helper...

M, you are doing such a great job!

You missed a spot buddy…

My husband painted this tree…

He did an AMAZING job! 
Little girl, you sure are lucky to have two men in your life
 that love you so much, and have worked so hard on your
 room, to make it special just for you.
Here are a few pictures of the lucky girl tonight, before bed. 

Look mommy, I can setup on my own…

You sure can sweetie, and you look adorable doing it too…

What happen to my sweet angel, looks like my little diva

has come to pay me a visit…

Okay, I get it, you’re ready for bed… Me too!
And not to leave my little man out, here is a picture of him
 this evening:

Goodnight sweet angels! 
Tomorrow will be here before we
 know it, and this momma is in need of some serious sleep.

xoxo, Shanna
