Quotes for the week

It was hard to pick just one quote from each boy, they give me so much material to work with.

"Just nothing."
-Athan Paul, anytime you ask him something and he doesn't want you to know the answer (like, "Where did that candy cane go?").

"Yes you do! It's checkers!!"
-Alex's response when Paulie said he didn't like the game they were playing.

"Mom, when I get adopted I hope I get a family as nice as this one."
-Ambrose, last night after dinner.

The Burrito Brothers

I recently developed a few rolls of film and I'm so happy this one turned out. The boys love to be rolled into tacos or burritos--or "Kacos" if you're talking to Paulie. This time even Lucy and Orange joined the fun.

Friday's Feast

What was the last game you purchased?

I just purchased M&M checkers for Alex for Christmas.

Name something in which you don’t believe.
Skinny = healthy

If you could choose a celebrity to be your boss, who would you pick?

Matt Damon, but only if he promises to speak in his thick "Good Will Hunting" boston accent.

Main Course
What was a lesson you had to learn the hard way?

Don't put a sweater in the dryer and walk away thinking you'll remember in 3 minutes that it's time to take it out.

Describe your idea of the perfect relaxation room.

The walls would be lined with favorite books and music would always be playing. There would be hot tea or coffee along with ice water. And let's not forget the stamping area! It would be a grand stamping area--completely organized. ;)

Have a great weekend! And don't forget to buy everyone on your list a book.

Winter day

I'm not a 'winter person.' When I left the mitten state I vowed I'd never return, and yet, here I am trying to get through another dark, cold, and dismal Michigan winter. Is there just a giant cloud that hovers over Michigan for 5 dreadful months?! Good grief.

Alright, no more complaining because the sun IS shining today and the snow is glistening and it's actually quite delightful.

I never enjoyed playing outside in the winter, but I easily forget that others do. So, when the boys wanted to go outside today my first reaction was "ugh." But, it turned out to be a lot of fun and really only lasted 15 minutes (not counting the 20 minutes getting ready to go out). We made snow balls (actually, I just made snow balls and passed them out) and threw them at the garage, followed rabbit tracks in the yard, and made snow angels. We retired inside to play 20 Questions while we warmed up with our cranberry apple tea--here comes today's funny. It was Alex's turn to ask a question and he came up with one I'd never heard before:

"Is it something you can cut off from yours body?"

Ambrose and I almost fell off the bench from laughing so hard.

It was a great Winter day.
