But not nearly as excited as when they "grew doughnuts" with Grandma. It was the cutest thing I would recommend it to anyone to try. My mom brought a little baggie of cheerios and told the kids that they were doughnut seeds. She had the kids fill up cups with dirt and they "planted" the seeds and added water. She also had them each color a tongue depresser and stick it in there for the doughnut to grow on. We had intentions to leave it overnight, but didn't have the patience. So while they were playing in the living room, my mom stuck a doughnut on each stick and we called the kids in to come and see that they had grown. It was as exciting as Christmas! (See the video)
Brinley refused to take the doughnut off of the stick, she kept saying "look at how beautiful my doughnut is" (as if it were a flower). Braden however did not hesitate - he just ate the doughnut. This is definitely a new tradition with Grandma that will last!
My 1st child enjoying his "doughnut." I think he liked this tradition as well. He probably also liked having a home cooked meal every night while my mom was here too.

Here are the kids with their favorite babies, this is the baby that Braden has been carrying around everywhere. It's actually really cute, it gave us a little taste of how Braden was going to be with Tyler before he came. We just got a little nervous when he would drag it by a foot or chuck across the room when he was done playing with it. Normally he would sit with his arm around it on the couch. It was darling.
This one is a little random, but this was Marc loading up our car on Labor day. I thought it was just a funny sight. But we had a great weekend. Marc's parents invited us to come stay at their time share on Sunday night. We played games, ate great food, played in the sand at the beach, and the kids enjoyed swimming with everyone in the pool. I also got a lot of sleep with all the help there. It was a perfect weekend!
