Anniversaries and Naked People

Hubs and I celebrated another Anniversary yesterday.

Celebrated in a way a family of 8 knows how....

Staying in and watching football.  

No seriously, we didn't have a babysitter and the whole time change threw us all off....

My InLaws said they would sit on Wednesday night when they come over for dinner...Hubs and I might take them up on that offer...we'll have to take along Sweet Pole though...he can't be away from his food source for long.  

I made that photo using one of my phone apps and got the number idea from where else?  Pinterest!  There's a great Flickr site that has a million letters/numbers to choose from.

I had planned on mounting the photo on a wood block and surprising him...but I went to Lowe's and bought the wrong board...then I had him cut the scrap wood I did find the wrong size.  He kept asking me what it was for...and I told him nothing....He said it better not be some Letter Block for my gift...I just looked around and said "Of course not...how lame a gift would that be"  (deep sigh) 
I ended up just printing it and hanging it where he would see it.  
Insert "L" lame on my forehead.  We don't usually do gifts...too close to Christmas....  

So since yesterday was OUR day I decided to finish one of my other Pinterest projects....my Giant Ruler Pottery Barn Knock Off...

I haven't decided which wall to put it on...this one is a bare space in the long entry hallway....I don't think it will stay...but for now it's found a home...

I had Reid and Lily stand by it for photos....Reid aka new binky boy did it willingly (although he looks a bit like a deer caught in the headlights)

Lily on the other hand was mad I was making her stand up tall...she was shouting  "BUT I WANT TO BE SMALL"

It wasn't until after I downloaded my photos did I realize I had a naked child.....At some point he unsnapped himself and took the diaper off this  morning. 

It gave "smile for the camera" a whole new meaning

Oh my! Love that ruler though! I need to do something like that! I think Reid and Chase are about the same height.

Scandal! That is hilarious. I have one of those...only it's different. But a measuring board.
It proves to me that my kids grow too fast.

Happy Anniversary!

I love that ruler! Why do boys always want to be naked? I'm constantly trying to get Jack to put underwear and pants on. LOL!
