A Nightly Ritual

I may have mentioned a new nightly ritual that takes place at our house, every night.

Kyle tucks us into bed.  Often we are all headed to bed at the same time, but even when he is already in bed, he waits until we are then he comes in to 'tuck' us in.

Last night started with the usual belly flop onto the bed and Tim giving Kyle his wild bucking bronco ride.  Then they started pestering me!

I started to take pictures...

We were laughing so hard that Sarah heard and couldn't resist coming to join in..

That's when I wisely got out of the bed

The object became to get Tim out of the bed also...


I always ask why this has to happen at BEDTIME but it's become a ritual between them, and I wouldn't change it for anything!


  1. Looks like a lot of family fun and making memories. Enjoy them because they grow up so fast!

  2. Looks like a fun ritual! But it might wake me up!

  3. Every night? If this were my family I'd never get any rest. Ha! Chamomile tea, gentle conversation, quiet reading...that's my evening ritual.

  4. This post and pictures had me laughing out loud. Dad was walking by and wanted to know what was so funny so I had to show him. Now we're both chuckling. :)


Welcome to Creekside Cottage - a place of Hospitality, Friendship and Encouragement!


  We are finally getting some blue skies with real clouds, and sunshine! I took sometime with Kyle and Kamryn's help to set up the deck ...
