Happy Memorial Day!

We had a very enjoyable weekend, most of it spent at home, working on the kitchen and playing outside with the boys. Here are a few shots from today:

The first is of Xavier sitting in his lawn chair watching Nick mow the front yard (notice Ben in the background in Xavier's exersaucer which we still squeeze X into because he loves it so much...Ben spent about 10 minutes in it, so apparently he likes it too!)

Here's a picture of "the cousins" at Nick's parents' house where we ate lunch today. Nathan, Owen, baby Kathryn, and Xavier and Ben. Xavier thoroughly enjoyed lunch because it included one of his favorites - baked beans! Ben had a blast playing with the older boys and discovering new corners of Grandma and Grandpa's backyard - the bird bath was a real hit :)

AND, the boys got their summer haircuts today. Thought I'd copy off my friend Melissa :) and post some haircut pictures! Nick has always cut the boys' hair and they do a good job sitting still - they like the buzzing noise and sensation of the clippers! The first is of Ben watching Nick cut Xavier's hair and pretending to cut his own with one of the clipper attachments. Unfortunately I didn't get to snap a picture of Ben getting his hair cut, because I was giving hairy Xavier a bath. The second picture is of the new "do's" while Nick was reading the boys their bedtime story. Notice Ben was way too enthralled in the story to even think about looking at the camera, but Xavier aka hambone looked right at the camera and smiled as soon as I said, "Mommy's going to take a picture!"

Sounds like you guys had a busy but very enjoyable weekend! The boys sit so nicely for their's nice that you have boys and can have Nick cut their hair. I would be scared to mess up Hannah's hair. Kate cut Lauren's bangs once and they didn't look so good...she cut them way too short.
