We finally got some “playable” snow today. Not ice, but snow. The kids are having a blast…
And even our little yard gnome got in on the snow play…

It’s not every day that my kids are getting along. In fact, it’s so rare that when they do, I think they’re up to something. Well, much to my surprise today (while we’re all home from school for a snow day), everyone is getting along. Getting along so well that Ian and Eve decided to surprise Ivy with a Hello Kitty party. Ivy is loving the attention and I’m loving having a minute to get some work done this week. I wish all snow days worked out like this…

Well, I’ve been waiting for this day a long time. The day my son finally takes initiative to get organized. I won’t include a picture of the rest of his room, cause he’s taking baby steps folks. Give him a chance….

No, not my kids this time, but me! I can’t explain how proud I am of my little man. At the beginning of this year, my kids knew nothing about cooking (and I didn’t really either), but through the course of the year we’ve all learned lots of valuable techniques to use in the kitchen. Well, Ian OFFERED to make breakfast for us all today. I didn’t have to ask or anything. He just offered. Actually told me to go and relax. He made a wonderful breakfast and it tasted even better knowing I didn’t have to lift a finger 🙂

Ian has been waiting for tonight for a long time. His best friend was supposed to be coming over tonight for a sleepover. Well, sometimes plans fall through and we found out last night that he wouldn’t be able to stay tonight. Ian was pretty upset. Although I know nothing I can do would be the same, I tried to think of something that might be equally as cool or at least a close second. Got Ivy all “occupied” in mommy’s room watching tv…

Ivy and I had the night to ourselves tonight. Just she and I.
I thought about what to do with Ivy, but she’s so tricky to figure out. I could have taken her to Chuck E. Cheese or Celebration Station, but I wanted to do something a little more grown up with her since it was something special for just she and I. We spent the night shopping and finished it off with a little Japanese.
Waiting took forever! It is definitely the place to be on Sundays…
