A rainy day

The boys are out of school today and we woke up to GLOOM.  The perfect excuse to stay in pj's and be lazy.  We did lots of little things, which may have included eating cake for breakfast and playing a game of real life Angry Birds with castle blocks and bean bags in Ben's room.

We all decided to build a fort, something we haven't done in a while.  As the boys get older, their fort requirements get more complex.  Today's fort had to form a complete circle they could crawl through-and have several skylights and trapdoors.  I guess we succeeded because they played in it for a while.

They have really played so nicely together all day, I keep catching them hunkered down together playing games they make up.  Their voices together (in these sweet moments) is one of the nicest things I have ever heard.  I love how Nate is always questioning Ben and Ben so patiently explains (most of the time).  It is so nice right now because Ben is the obvious leader and Nate is just fine with that.  I know that will not always be the case, so I am enjoying this stage of their relationship while it lasts.

We have enjoyed decorating for Halloween, thanks to the Martha Stewart section at Michael's.  Nate wanted to take pictures of some of our spooky stuff.

And some little bats landed on some of our pictures.  Yikes.
