snowy days

no school!




what they do when they get tired of playing outside: they, um, decorate things...



video

and do crafts, many many crafts (the painting started at 6:45am and then chalk drawings and then coloring and then stickers and then cut-outs and then more coloring...)


but not BR, poor fella.  He's been sick for days.
no playing in the snow for him

and one last one for Molly, who likes my kitchen:


it's the soup pot that's clouding up the windows 

bird feed

L: "What's for dinner?"

Me: "Chicken.  A different kind.  One we haven't had before."

"Is it a cockerel?"

"Ha, ha! No. I mean, a different recipe."

"Is it a rooster?"

"The recipe--I mean, it's a different recipe.  One I'm trying for the first time, with herbs and garlic and lemon and stuff."

"No seriously, what kind of chicken is it?"

guacamole

L.: "Did you know, A., that your slice is only one single slice of a big huge cake?"
Me: "Why are you saying that?  Are you trying to upset her?"
L.: "No. I'm just telling her a fact."

another new "cousine"!

Sorry, I-roc, you are old news.  Like, so 3 months ago.  There is now a new one in the family to drool over and she is just lovely.  Welcome, Laurel Frances!

it's just a teeny tiny bit morbid, sort of.

I can't decide if I should give this book to P-roc for his birthday, or buy Uncle Garrett the t-shirt, or both.
There's a youtube promo, too, but I can't seem to embed it while shaking with laughter.


But wait, there's more!  These talented authors have another book out and apparently it's got a foreword by the Statue of Liberty! 

You know how people go to NYC and they either love it or hate it? Well...

ABC mind puzzle


BR: "Mommy, the alphabet needs a second letter 'N.' I think there's one missing."


We'll give you a dollar if you can guess what he meant!
