We had one of those parenting moments when we just had to sit back and watch what was happening. It turns out that Noah can assemble Ikea furniture. By himself.
We've trained him well. He started being Daddy's helper for assembling furniture when he was 2, so he has had 3 good years of practice, since we're loyal Ikea customers.
We bought a new kitchen table and four chairs last weekend. Noah took charge of the instructions, organized the parts, and assembled a chair by himself. Matt only had to help stabilize the parts once in a while.
Isaac was quite the helper too. 2 more years for him, and he can build his own furniture.
The next day, the boys got to work assembling another chair.
Noah helped with the second chair, then he was done.
Really, the fun stops after the first one anyway.

It's a little late, but we wanted to wish you all a wonderful Easter!
The boys dyed eggs and danced. There must be dancing incorporated into every activity.
Isaac had an Easter egg hunt at babygarden (preschool). He was so excited to see all the eggs that he spent most of the time jumping up and down and screaming about how many eggs there were. He finally hopped over and collected 3 eggs. He was so stinkin' excited about those 3 eggs in his basket. It was like he had just won the lottery!

We had two Easter egg hunts at home. Noah loved it.

Then we attempted the impossible...getting a picture of the boys together. We didn't get that one perfect shot, but what we did get was so much more entertaining. Enjoy!
Later in the day, the boys were watching the Lego Channel on You Tube, and Isaac rested his head on Noah's shoulder and dozed off for a few minutes. That's brotherly love right there.
