New Three Kids

dammit janet.

Becky's post reminded me of something funny Tracy did the other day. She had this little bottle of pebbles and she spilled it all over the kitchen floor. She diligently picked up and vacuumed and cleaned them all up and put them back in the bottle. She then left the bottle in the middle of the floor. Later on Mike accidentally kicked it and the pebbles all spilled back on the floor. Tracy walks in and says "Dammit, I just cleaned that up!!"

Nothing like having your terrific mothering skills mirrored back at you. :)

New Three Kids

pin-yada.

Yesterday Andrew asked if he could make a pinata out of a paper mache pig that he had made in school last month.  I said sure.  So he cut a hole in the top and stuffed a bunch of candy in the hole.  I wrapped a rope around it and hung it from the tree on our deck.  The kids had a great time whacking it and breaking it apart and grabbing for candy.

Fun with sugar.

Today the kids needed something to do so I whipped up some real quick sugar cookies and then got out all the cake decorating stuff to let them decorate a couple of cookies just for the fun (and mess) of it. They started out with one color, then another, then sprinkles, then another color... until there was simply was more frosting than cookie and they were truly disgusting.  Need milk now.

First they waited patiently for the cookies to bake...
