Saturday Fun

We had a great time at the r.v. show today. So much fun picking out which ones we liked.
Granny played a great trick on the boys tonight. She told a story about how drinks from Mexico sometimes have worms at the bottom of the bottles. Then she secretly dropped a gummy worm into their cups. A's face when he saw it floating at the bottom of his cup ... priceless.

And there's nothing like a game or four of checkers to round out the evening.
I held my own except when M trounced me!

Sunday Snow

Church is fun because M gets to turn off BOTH of his phones for a couple of hours and I get to hold other people's babies.
Also, because we sometimes get to bring a friend home with us for the afternoon.

That means there's more fun on the sledding hill.

We had a slight reprieve from the deep freeze we've been living in. 
We're so lucky this hill is walking distance from our house.

So fun.
Add in dinner with friends and you've got a great Sunday.

Pre-Dinner Time

When the boys were younger pre-dinner time was my least favourite time of the day.
The kids were tired and hungry and I hadn't got my second wind yet.
I would be counting the seconds until M got home from work.
Sometimes, once he got home I'd pretend dinner took longer to cook than it really did and I'd hide in the kitchen and read a magazine.
But now .... now it's bliss.

Weekend Report

They really are trying to make the best of the winter but the weather has been way, way cold.

This morning before church this guy was up making eggs for breakfast.
He's so comfortable in the kitchen.
And his lucky brother gets to enjoy the fruits of his labour.

It might be difficult to know what this is. Looks like a kid just taking a step. 
But it's a big step. Completely out of one place and into another. 
As of today, this family will have no reason to shop in the kid's section of the book store. That's been the first place we've gone in every book store for the last 11 years.
We discovered today while shopping for a new series for A, we're done with that.
