the cutest thing ever

Tonight just before Daniel and I took our assigned twin and headed off to bed.....Daniel checked on the older 3 kids as he usually does. When he went into Andrew and Ashley's room he noticed neither of them were in their beds. He looked around the room and couldn't find them. At this point he would've been really worried if he hadn't been able to hear Ashley's crazy loud snoring. Finally, he found them.....asleep....in their closet.....on top of storage boxes....with their little turtle nightlight. Earlier in the day Ash had mentioned something to me about sleeping in the closet and I just said no closets weren't for sleeping in and that was that. They never asked again and never mentioned the closet. When we left them at bedtime they were tucked in their beds. This is probably the cutest thing they've ever done. They made a bed on top of boxes with their blankets and hopped right in there....a 2 ft wide space....and fell asleep on this lumpy narrow bed in the closet. This makes it all worth while.

Its nice to have been to your house so I can visualize this more. I hope that you dealt the appropriate punishment when the morning came.

Oh, so adorable! Isn't it neat that we live in a day and age when we can record these kinds of things? Love it!
