staying home

Wednesday, February 27th, 2008

We had zero classes so far this week and I must say it has been very nice. Certainly doesn’t make me want to rush out and sign the kiddos up for promised dance and gymnastics classes. But alas, tomorrow we’re back to the norm with gymnastics, book club, muffin baking, errand running and girl scouts. […]

post script

Tuesday, February 26th, 2008

There were a few things I forgot to mention about our trip.
One night we went to dinner at Ed Debevic’s! This is a restaurant that used to be in Beverly Hills that was kind of fun to go to on dates or group dates. It’s 1950s themed and the waiters and waitresses are all […]

I have never known such cold

Saturday, February 23rd, 2008

So I write from the Windy City. Oh sure, I knew Chicago would be cold. But I dutifully looked up the average temps for February before we left. According to Wikipedia, the average high is 34F and the average low is 19F. Not this trip. We’ve actually been here a week (going home tomorrow) and […]

Last night I asked Chris if he was up for another of my insane ideas (I currently have two in the works so wasn’t sure he could deal with a third). He agreed and I told him I wanted the wall in the living room painted today completely. The thing that makes it crazy is […]

the wind is blowing

Friday, February 15th, 2008

We wore shorts on Sunday. Today the kids and I were huddling together whenever we were outside of the car. High 60s isn’t cold, unless the wind whips that air right through you.
We did gymnastics and book club this morning and then the girls and I went to the mall for a quick trip. […]

Around the house

Wednesday, February 13th, 2008

This is today’s activity table. This is usually only out when we have a train track set up. Frankly, there seems to always been a train track set up so I figured I might as well just leave it out. Daisy likes to play with toys that are on tables, she doesn’t care for the […]

starting the week off

Monday, February 11th, 2008

We were supposed to go back to Kindermusik this morning, but Miss Daisy has decided she no longer wishes to attend. At first I thought she might just not want to get dressed so I made her get dressed anyway. Then I talked to her again after she was dressed and she told me no, […]

GS: I Love You

Sunday, February 10th, 2008

I’ve got Girl Scouts on the brain. Seeing that museum the other night made me decide to search for my old uniforms and books. Found the books on Friday and Chris and I found the uniforms today. Tabitha is thrilled and wants to wear my old Brownie uniform on Tuesday.
Friday night through today I’ve been […]

Valentine’s Party

Saturday, February 9th, 2008

We had our Valentine’s Party at park day yesterday. The weather cooperated and gave us gorgeous clear skies and high 70s. We had a rather nice turnout and I enjoyed remembering that last year we had about a 1/3 of the kids we have now. And more are joining our group all the time! I […]

the last week

Wednesday, February 6th, 2008

The birthdays are over Tabitha turned 9 last Wednesday and Daisy turned 3 on Monday. For Tabitha’s day, we had bought her heart shaped Krispy Kremes with sprinkles on top because they came out the day before her birthday and she had been waiting for them. We served her one for breakfast with […]

Disney World ‘08- Day 4

Sunday, February 3rd, 2008

Alternate title: “Even the animals had umbrellas”
Sunday was the day for Animal Kingdom. I was very excited to go back to this park just to re-experience it’s beauty. We arrived before park opening to attend Donald’s Character Breakfast Buffet at Tusker House. On the way we were able to catch a few pictures without guests […]
