I was behind the fry daddy for the entire beginning of our evening, and my sweet family was playing with the boys and Laney. Miles was having fun in Uncle Jack's lap. Grant joined them later. He called over to me and asked if Miles liked to have his nose tapped or his chin tickled. He remembered me telling him a couple weeks ago about how to make each of them smile. Isn't he a sweet big cousin!!Sam spent some time with Johnny, my little sister's sweet boyfriend.
Aunt Jessa snuggled up with both girls on her side of the booth.

Laney was so excited to be riding next to Todd, she had to lean over and give him a kiss on the arm.
Here's a little Sammy smile from a couple of days ago!

Cute Sam Bones (not sure where this nickname came from, but it is the most commonly used one at our house)
And here he is in full out protest of the mandated tummy time!
I got Laney a Dora Valentine's book months ago on a big sale somewhere. Luckily her love for Dora has only gotten greater over the last few months
Todd decided to get Laney something that could become a tradition every year. He is going to get her a CD each year. I love that idea, because he loves music so much. I hope that he can pass that love and appreciation down to her. I have absolutely no musical inclination at all. One year, as a New Year's Resolution, I decided to exchange tardiness in my life for an appreciation of music. It didn't stick!
So this year, Laney got....big surprise.....a Dora CD!!!! I think that Todd is anxious for years to come when he can give her CDs that don't have songs led by cartoon character voices. But, she loves it!!!! A couple of times in the past week, we have been driving around aimlessly in an effort to keep our boys sleeping soundly. You would think that would be boring for Laney but she is happy as can be singing along with her "movie" as she calls it. The funniest thing about her CD is that it has verses in Spanish, and every time it starts, Laney laughs and says that they are singing backwards! She says, "I can't sing along now, it's too hard."

I hesitate to put them in carriers all the time, because typically they go right to sleep, but it is nice to have as an option!!!
