Bedtime routines

I'm not sure how it started, but we have been through some elaborate bed time routines with the kids. Our plan was always to read them a book and kiss them goodnight and not hear from them until morning. But then, things got complicated. 

First it was the kids asking Luke to carry them to their room in all sorts of funny ways. Luke would carry them by their feet, upside down, over his shoulders, etc. This lasted a couple of weeks and then Luke's back started hurting. 

So then we came up with raspberry kisses before bed. After books the kids would get raspberry kisses. The would giggle and thrash around so wildly I thought they would crack their heads on the bed board. So then we switched to rock, paper scissors. 

And on and on.

All sorts of games the kids would come up with so they didn't have to go sleep. 

One of the funnier traditions was to stick things in our pants as we gave them a hug goodnight. Then the kids would giggle and follow us back into our rooms until we discovered whatever was in our pants

The kids stuck their clothes in Luke's
pants and it took him a while to figure it out

You have to admit it is pretty funny.
