Yesterday, we had a beautiful blanket of snow in our yard. The older two kids had so much fun in it, well, William did, anyway. Tati had trouble walking around in it and was done after about 10 minutes.
It started melting fairly rapidly so we just a slushy mess today. That, coupled with the fact that all three had some combination of congestion, sneezing, coughing and runny noses, kept us inside today.
The morning started out with an early morning nap for Xander who had been awake three times overnight and some cartoons for the kids while I ate breakfast and got myself ready for the day.
Aren’t they so cute cuddled up together watching cartoons together?
Xander woke up and Tati went down for a nap and I got busy making chocolate chip cookies and tested the capacity of the bowl on my stand mixer.
By the way, if you ever want a good use for sour cream containers, they are excellent for freezing cookie dough. I love being able to pull out a container when I want to bake something and don’t have a lot of time.
I kept the little guy entertained by feeding him cheerios while mixing the dough.
William was pacified by getting to lick the bowl since I excluded his little sick self from helping with the mixing.
After lunch and nap time was over, we had fun goofing around with play dough, Tati had fun dressing up with the kitchen towel, then we curled up on the couch and watched Rescuers Down Under.
I left the kids in the house and checked the mail. Walking back up to the house, this is how I found my dear little daughter:
Xander is perfectly capable of feeding himself but sometimes I love to just hold him while he drinks his bottle.
When I went to fix supper, Tati and Xander had a blast tearing out most of the diapers.
Then I went to AWANA at church, leaving William at home so he could go to bed on time and avoid spreading germs to his friends.
All in all, it was a pretty good slush day.
