One of the fun things we do when Dad is out of town (to keep away the loneliness) is have a "reading party". Each kid grabs a book, or in Matty's case 5 small ones, a treat and climbs in Mom and Dad's bed. Lights go out, except for candles and one lamp, and it's silent, silent, silent (except of course for the rare giggle or oooooo out of the kids).
Michael was reading his "Oceanography" book, (which is massive), Cody is on "Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix" and Matty was reading his "Lego firefighter's" book and I am reading part 4 of the Morganville Vampires series. Love them!
Matty just had to read to Aidan.....omg is that NOT TOO CUTE!!!!
I just love my boy's and I love their love of reading and love for each other (some days they really do care! lol).
