When we pray the kids are usually pretty prompt about folding their arms. Lately I have been trying to step up level of reverence at prayer time by having the kids bow their heads and close their eyes. At church when it was bow your head time I would gently push the head down and tell them to bow their heads. They have translated that to mean that when I say bow your heads a hand is necessary to push the head down. Harry saw Evan doing it and he now eagerly uses both hands to roughly push his head into position. I find it quite hilarious and have a hard time not laughing every time they do it. Evan is also very amusing with his attempts to close his eyes and keep them closed. He kind of moves his head around like Stevie Wonder when his eyes are closed.
The kids also adore playing on my bed. Since the weather has started to cool we have been spending more time indoors. I am sewing a jacket for the dress I am wearing to my sister's wedding. It has been great to be able to have them in the next room entertaining themselves while I am able to sew in relative peace. They are both old enough to (most of the time) respect the boundaries of the bed and not fall off. They are also tall enough now to be able to get off and on safely. How they can spend house just hanging out on the bed I am not sure. It is not even like they are jumping on the bed like wild little monkeys. A lot of the time they just haul their blankies from their bedroom and just snuggle under them on our bed.
