Oh that Eleanor!

When Chris is not working late at Dillon's, we will usually watch a movie or TV after we put the kiddos to bed. Usually we will have a little visitor at least one time after they've been deposited to their beds. One night this week Eleanor kept getting out of bed, but Sean was asleep very quickly. I don't know what her deal was, but we finally gave her a spank and sent her to bed with a warning of what would happen should she appear again! We went back to watching TV, but about an hour or so later went out to the kitchen to get some water. First we saw that the door to Sean and Ellie's room was open, then we saw that Eleanor's bed was empty! So, we went into the living room where there was a light on and that is where we found her...
...tuckered out and face down in the recliner!

I scooped her up and put her back in her bed. She didn't wake up! I don't know why or when she went out there, but she must have been too scared of the consequences to come to our room again!

She is a funny little girl. I am so impressed at how well she can hold her crayons! It may seem like a silly thing, but Sean still just holds them in his fist. Ellie can do the whole proper crayon between the fingers thing.


  1. Nice pics of the family at the pumpkin patch!! Thanks again for loaning Eleanor's swedish dress today--always fun to dress-up the little ones!!

  2. Hmmm. Sneaky and sleepy Eleanor!

  3. I remember doing that in Buhler. Falling asleep in the hallway.
