Snow Day!


It was a cold, rainy day yesterday, and the natives were restless. Thankfully, I'm addicted to pinterest, and had pinned this fort kit idea. I was planning to make the kit for a birthday gift this weekend, so I made one for our kids, too. Ten minutes of zig-zagging and boom. It's the gift that keeps on giving! Our fort did not turn into a pirate's ship, a cave, or a princess castle. No, my nerds turned it into....a library. They hauled a bunch of books in and read off and on all afternoon. I think they get it from their father.

I dream of....George Washington

In honor of President's Day, we read the legend of the cherry tree, did rubbings of quarters, and painted cherries on trees. This afternoon Bea asked, "Mom? Can I put my chewwy twee on my night stand? 'Cause then I will think about Geowge Washington and dweam about Geowge Washington." Which is just so....Bea.

Second tooth lost!

Half Birthdays

We celebrated the half-birthdays of Bea, Inga, and William this week. Bea and Inga were both fighting the flu on their half-birthday. Somehow, those resilient tummies welcomed chocolate cupcakes without protest.

Bop and Gaga, Super Bowl, and Graham's half birthday

We've been busy with Bop and Gaga! William was laughing with Gaga but when he saw the camera, he flashed his best cheesy smile.

Bop and the kids watched their cousin
Libby singing to her new little sister.
We enjoyed the blue sky and fresh air on a walk to the park today.

We turned on the Super Bowl, although we're really only basketball fans (Let's Go, Duke!!). Graham loved the commercials and Bea and Inga were solely focused on how many grapes and cheddar potato chips they could eat. William, however, was enthralled with the game. He stared at the tv and kept saying, "foot.ball.foot.ball." He might be our child who loves to kick a ball more than open a book.

Today Graham turned six and a half! He is such a sweet guy and we are so proud of the young man he is becoming.
