Yesterday at lunch, the ketchup bottle made an, ahem, rude noise when squeezed. Without looking up from his plate or missing a beat and in complete seriousness, Little Man said, "That was me."
On Saturday, we braved the cold temps to drive several hours to my brother's house to celebrate our family Christmas. It was a fun day and the kids really enjoyed playing with their cousins who they don't see very often. We finally got to meet my brother's 4th baby and first son who was born in July. Little Man was especially enthralled with the baby and when I called him over to introduce him to his new cousin who was sitting on my lap, he asked, "Is this the baby out of your tummy?" Oh honey, if only it were that easy! Later he wanted to know if we could "take that baby home with us." He's going to be so awesome with his new baby brother or sister :)
Today, it's so cold here in Minnesota that the governor closed all the schools statewide. Right now, we're showing a temperature of -15 F and -42 F windchills. Since we're cooped up inside all day, I thought it was the perfect day to put together the kids' new cardboard playhouse they received as a gift from my mom on Saturday. Princess got one of these for her birthday last year, and it was such a big hit and a perfect way to keep the kids from going stir crazy in the house all winter that I plan to make sure the kids get one every year to play with. This one is from Hobby Lobby for $16.99, but you can also find a ton of cardboard playhouses that kids can color and play with on Amazon.
Star's favorite way to get in and out of the house is headfirst through the window, despite the fact that there is a perfectly good door on either end of the house.
