It is completely gross outside.
A couple of days ago it snowed a couple of inches.
Schools were canceled.
Then it melted a bit.
School was reopened.
Last night it rained, froze and then iced.
Schools were closed.
As of now it is a raining out.
Yucky, Cold and Wet
Tucked inside the nice warm house are two small children with runny noises and a mommy with a sinus headache.
This week has been an adventure!
We have played pirates, hide-n-go seek, church(they take turns being the preacher and it is hilarious) and the traditional games of chutes and ladders followed by candy land.
ANY and EVERYTHING to keep the kids from destroying the house or the world.
They have SO MUCH ENERGY.
(Side note: that is why I am so glad I gave birth at the young age of 21 and 24.)
The game that they love the most to play and that annoys me the MOST is "hide stuff from mom." They sneak in the bathroom, grab the toilet paper and hide it somewhere in the house. I walk in the bathroom to go pee, find that that there is no toilet paper,"what did you two do with the toilet paper?" They proceed to giggle until they fall over in a fit of hysteria while I run off in search of the magical white roll.
They also play this game with my chap stick, my hair brush, my knitting and my book.
Most of the time I find all of the hidden stuff in Anna's closet.
Speaking of Anna's closet.
Have I mentioned that I found her in the closet a few days back, with a bag of chips, munching away like we had been starving her to death?
I still haven't managed to find my chap stick and I am so aggravated because I keep buying chap stick and the kids keep taking it from me. AAAAAAHHHHH
This morning Anna was so crafty!
She made her very own lotion.
Roger said "umm we have a problem" which is code word for "your daughter has made a mess and I want you to come deal with it."
I walked in the bathroom to find snotty noised Anna with an assortment of lotions squeezed into her hand. She smiled and began rubbing it all over the place before I could think through what I was seeing.
It was a combination of lavender, french vanilla and petunia.
It actually smelt quite lovely!
And to think that it isn't even really considered winter yet. WOW.
