How can you even stay asleep when you are in position like that? I don't get it. She didn't even wake up when I picked her up and put her back into bed the normal way.

This is a video that I took of Will Easter morning of him sword fighting using a stick. This is pretty much what he does everyday all the time. It doesn't always have to be a stick, it can be a shoe, a piece of popcorn, a fork, a book, a piece of paper, a pen, anyways you get the point. It's so much fun to watch him use his imagination (and boy does he have one!) and well it keeps him entertained so I am not complaining one bit, until he does it at church. And of course you can hear Kyanna yelling in the background "take picture, take picture." Like I said she loves to have her picture taken.

O.k. so I know that there are many disadvantages of working at the D.I. First of all you have that whole image of the D.I. you know the one that you grew up with and was always embarrassed when your mom shopped for clothes at the D.I. (or at least I was, I know I was vain). Second, let's face it, it's retail. Not the most ideal industry to work, although the D.I. is different because there main focus is to help people, you still have to deal with the retail aspect of it all. Third, the hours well... suck. Brett is gone one night a week and works every, yes every, Saturday. And well that's hard. It's hard for him because he misses out on a lot of stuff and hard for me because I then either miss out or do it by myself with the kids.
But I have to say there are many advantages as well. He works for the church, seriously what more stable of a job is that! Many retail stores are open on Sunday,but not the D.I., and since I have long moved past the whole stigma with the D.I. you can get really great stuff there. And yes I do buy my clothes and the kids clothes there.
This week I am especially grateful for the D.I. For the last year and a half we have been using Brett's Grandparents washing machine and dryer. Which I am pretty sure could actually be older than me. Well this week our dryer finally died. And I was stressed. Sure we have the money to go buy a new one but we are trying super hard to save and plus we are thinking we don't want to go buy a cheap dryer, when we buy one we want it to be a nice one. Well the very next day someone left a washer and dryer at the D.I. The D.I. doesn't accept appliances, I don't know why. But they don't. So Brett was able to take this one and bring it home and see if it works. Well good news... It does. I am not sure how long it will last but hopefully it will get us to a point where we are able to buy a really nice one.
All I can say is the D.I. has been good to us. This isn't the only cool thing that we have gotten. I could go on and on with the many amazing things we have been able to find. But this one I am especially thankful for.
