Supper Time

One of my favorite times of the day is suppertime. And it's not just because I like to eat...well that might be part of it...but it's mostly because I get to reconnect with these two hooligans and Eric everyday. We make a point of eating together most evenings. Sometimes it doesn't work out because of crazy sports schedules or whatever, but more often than not you can find us gathered around the table at suppertime. It's important. The best conversations seem to pop up when we are eating. Lots of laughter, but some more serious things as well.

Yesterday I noticed how the sun was hitting Brian's face, making his eyelashes look so long. I had to grab the camera. Is it fair for a boy to have such long eyelashes? And how is it that my little boy is needing a shave?

I didn't want to leave Billy out of the picture taking. Even though he has a frame on his head and the lighting wasn't right. He was well below that frame a few short months ago. Did you know that he has a birthday on Saturday? I think I'll have to embarrass him by posting some baby pictures...don't you?

He sure is a growing boy, he wanted to get on with the pictures so he could eat. OK mom, are we done now?? I'm hungry! I only had half a box of Cheez it's after school today! Oh, and you need to buy some more OK?

Last night was spaghetti night. I asked Brian what he thought and he gave me his best Italian impression...."molto bene, molto bene". I'm not quite sure what that means, but I'm going to pretend that it was good. They are a couple of characters, that's for sure.

Sharing supper with my family....and a tulip for the table. It doesn't get much better than that for me.

Unless of course someone else is doing the cooking....and the dishes....hey you boys....GET BACK IN HERE!!!!
