My sleepy Zac.

I have this kid that can fall asleep anywhere when he wants to. In the last year or so I have been collecting pictures of him sleeping and I thought it would be fun to share. It is crazy some of the places he decides to lay his head....you will see what I'm talking about when you take a look at the pictures.

This first picture was just about a month ago. We were eating lunch at a pizza place after one of Jacob's basketball games. He seemed fine and then all of the sudden he was asleep on Grandma's lap!
The next few were at our old house. Taken almost a year ago. He may have been watching a movie. Take notice....no pants and one shoe on. It doesn't really matter the situation if he's tired he will sprawl!

This is just proof that our couch and ottoman are way too comfortable. We enjoy sleeping on it too :)

I guess he couldn't wait to get into the car this time. Who in the world could fall asleep on the bottom stair but him? Are you starting to think that he doesn't get enough sleep? Well let me tell you, we put him to bed between 7:30 and 8:00 most nights and he gets up anywhere between 6:30 and 7:30 in the morning. So he's getting almost 12 hours a night and if he naps during the day he won't fall asleep until after 9:00.

This is one of my favorites....he was watching the snow plow!!

Don't even ask me here. I just looked down and he was asleep, face down under our desk. Do you think that I'm mean for taking pictures? I promise that I move him to a more comfortable place when I've taken the pictures!

I think this one is the most impressive. There were 5 other people standing around talking (some yelling) in the kitchen plus Luke was bouncing the basketball. He STILL feel asleep in the middle of it all. Grandma was a witness to that one!!

So there they are. All of the places that I've caught Zac sleeping. Well probably not all but a lot anyway. What a kid!

Well, once again I've disappeared for a whole month without realizing it. Our life has been crazy busy so I will try my best to catch you all up on the Abshire's happenings.....

Jacob is a little over half way through his basketball season. He is still having a great time and believe it or not we are seeing improvement. He's been playing GREAT defense the last couple of weeks. I actually think that the kid he was blocking last game was getting a little ticked off because Jake wouldn't let him by. It was pretty awesome. We are very proud of him and it's going to be sad when the season ends. Baseball is next though and this year we will have two boys playing.

Luke is so excited to start playing baseball. He's been talking about it pretty much non-stop since the snow started melting. We are hoping that we can get him and Jacob on the same team this year but it may be a little tricky. He had a 5 year well check this week and got up to date on all of his immunizations for school. That is the other hot topic....kindergarten!! He says that he's ready to go now. I think I can wait a little bit to send my little helper away to school.

Zac is changing so much right now. I think that he's in that stage of going from a toddler to a little boy. His new thing in the last month or so is that he is TOTALLY out of diapers and pull ups. We've been done with diapers for awhile but he sleeps through the night now. Can you believe it?! I only have one kid in diapers!! YAY for Zac Man!

Sarah is starting to get quite a "goofyness" about her these days. She loves to play around with her brothers and tries really hard to keep up with them. She is finally getting some more teeth, she went about 7 months with just 8 teeth and in the last month or so has finally cut her molars. All of my kids have been late in getting their teeth. The other thing that she is attempting is going potty on the toilet. She has gone several times and wants to go all the time. We'll see how long it takes her. I'll keep you updated on that.

So that's about it with the kids. Other things have been going on too....Ben's work has been really busy, we've had some really big and exciting changes at our church, some of our great friends are moving up here from AZ. and right now our family is battling the flu. Hopefully that will pass soon.

I have a few random pictures to share just so you have something fun to look at instead of just reading my boring post. I don't think that I will be making any more promises about being a better blogger but I will try my hardest! Thanks for sticking with me.... :)

I forgot, one more thing. I wanted to share something from one of my friends blogs this morning. I don't get political but I read this post and thought it worthy of sharing. Just in case you don't all know what our new president is probably about to do....you should go check it out.
