Be Board

Sexy Neck has a whole lot of wood around the outside of the house – in his shop, down the side of the fence, under the addition.  

Today the boys wanted to have a pajama day.  This involved staying home in our pajamas.  There was no sleeping to be done though.  

The boys took two pieces of boards that were lying along the fence and decided to run, jump, climb along them at various angles and speeds.  Strap yourselves in, here we go:

With one giant jump from JC, the board broke in half.  This started a whole different type of play.

In my life as a mother, I am never bored!

Be Snowing in the Kitchen

Today, we were making cheese and ham muffins for lunch.  The big boys pulled over their Stokke’s to the kitchen counter and then started to add all the ingredients into a big bowl.  (Our KitchenAid does all the mixing.)

Baby OC was on the floor sitting on his plasma car and looking in our treat/baking cupboard.  I looked up to see what the big boys were doing when suddenly I heard a giggle from the floor.  When I looked down, I saw  two pounds of spelt floor all over the floor.Image

JC jumped off his Stokke and immediately started yelling “It is snowing! It is snowing!”

Usually I find accidents where there is major clean-up quite frustrating, but today I grabbed the camera and laughed.  Accidents happen and I realize that I can control my reaction to them AND have fun along the way.

Welcome to our chaos.  Snow and snowmen in the kitchen while trying to make lunch. Hahaha.
