Sunshine Sunday - free burgers, mannerisms, and smart boys

You know how certain weeks seem like they are really two weeks long?  This week was a bit like that.  We had some fun moments to help break it up though.  

Our library had this In and Out program.  If you read a certain amount of books you got a free cheeseburger.  I helped Rex read a lot of books, so he ended up with 3 free cheeseburger coupons.  He was so excited to cash one in the other day.  I was actually pretty excited myself.  I remember doing that with Pizza Hut and the Book It program when I was young.  It just tastes better when you earn it.

When it came down to it, the boys were really more into the shake than the burger.  Can you blame them?

Baden has this little mannerism that I love.  He often sits like this with his face in his little hand.  I just love it - the fry sauce face, the bed head, the crazy eyebrow and all.

Lastly, I love to hear how my boys think and how they are growing in their thought process.  The other day we went to take ice cream to a neighbor boy who just had his tonsils taken out.  On the way, we found two of the Squinkies that Rex had lost several weeks ago.  I explained that good things happen to us when we do good things.  Later that day he asked if there was some good deed we could do because he really wanted to find one more Squinkie he'd lost.

Thanks for your patience last week as I was finally able to cross some things off the list.  I think I'll have some fun projects to share this week.

Thank you for stopping by.

We have that same Mark Twain statue in downtown Gilbert, where I live.

I am so glad for you!!!
I have to go back to work and have a job lined up; we are waiting for the background clearance to be returned. In the process of just existing I have let my house go and it is a disaster. It will be much easier if it is read-up before I go. SO... I must quit putting things off and Get-R-Done! I really appreciate the inspiration and want to hear all about your projects.
My daughter also sits with her hands and arms in a certain way when we go out to eat. I have pictures of her on my cell phone at different restaurants, at different ages in the same pose. I love to go through them every once in awhile and see how she has changed.
I can't get over how big your boys are getting! Life is too short at this age! If it were up to me my daughter would still be two.
Steak and Shake - one of the great unknown places to eat!

Your boys are so cute. It was so nice to win the cheeseburgers. Pretty exciting for a kid!

Patience? You've got to be kidding me, I loved those posts! I cleaned out my fridge today, plus the microwave, the sewing machine is on the list for tomorrow morning and I have a few other things for next week. I thought it was inspiring.

Although bed hair, weird eyebrows and boys' minds are pretty cool, too.

Have a good week!

Oh man, I loved the pizza hut book it program! Just reading about it makes me remember how the pizzas tasted. :) I love sunshine Sundays and what you share. Thanks for writing!

Oh man I remember the Book It program at Pizza Hut! Free food is always the best reading incentive, hehe. :) Congrats to your little ones.

Anything that rewards reading is a good thing right? Well done Rex!

Those faces must make you melt every time!
