Sleep is an interesting thing in this household. You never know when it's going to happen and according to some of these pictures, where it will happen is a question too! I had a garage sale a couple weeks back. At some point during my prep for the sale they started dropping like flies. Babies were in bed up stairs but Sydney and Calvin managed cozy little spots in the garage. It was too funny! I had to take pictures.

He is wrapped up and sleeping soundly on the floor of the garage! Horrible I know! But, he's learning multiple skills about marketing and sales for a successful garage sale! At least while he could stay awake he was.
Sydney chose a slightly more civilized spot as she camped out in a toddler bed.  I doubt any part of her very princess self would have ever flopped onto the concrete in exhaustion.

The other morning I woke up to this...

How do they do this? They ended up literally piled on top of each other in our bed. Yes, they are strange ones. Despite various limbs being entangled, they all slept this way for quite a while. Usually they don't bother each other unless someone gets a toe in the eye or a roll over turns into a squishing of someones head. These are the times that make me smile. My little ones are crazy, loud, energetic, wild, loving, kind, thoughtful, they love sharing everything with everyone, and they are all my special little gifts from God. Its fun to document their growth and silly antics. They are a joy to Steven and myself. Having children is the most challenging task I have ever encountered, or rather growing children is. But, it is by far the most rewarding, exciting and amazing experience I am privileged to enjoy!
