Ceason forbid me to see Valentines Day (the movie) this evening by myself, so I'm at home with the fam. The standards she keeps...
Hoping my southern peeps are enjoying a taste of the good life with snow and hot cocoa and high calorie casseroles!
We're preparing for a day on the slopes tomorrow. Possibly our last of the season. Need to get the little punks doing more on their own. And, a more serious effort from our 2 year old daughter. Skiing is serious business, Laine. Get it together.
On to the scoop......
Kiddos attempted to get creative with nap time today. Good try, little ones.
We made our sugar cookies finally. Love this picture......my little punks' hands, hard at work.
Lainey Bug tried to eat the cookie cutters. Ohhhh-kaaaay.
Aunt Mary sent the kids $5 each with their cards this year. Quotes below on their reactions.
My Perlis crawfish necklace I've worn for years. Love it.
This is what the beginning of the Superbowl looked like......in between requests for "Dowah" and "Dinosaur Train". Blake appears happy.
Not a whole lot of pictures this round. Oh, wait.
My picture of the week. It's getting tough, people. I took this one in the bathroom at Union Station. Jack was on a marathon potty trip, so I kept myself entertained.
This week's winner of "You Tell Me" was hands down, Blake, according to comments and my own kooky opinion.
"Mom - Put your shirt on! Were not on Bourbon St."
Very nice, honey. Full of class.
Jack - "Ugh. Not watching Barbie. It's too scawey."
Casey - "Wait, babe. Come here." (slyly checking to see if he has a bald spot)
Blake - "What? What did you see? What were you looking at? Is it what I think? What? Tell me."
Casey - "Nothing, babe. I thought I saw a glimpse. Your hair is lush and full of life. Calm the hell down."
Blake - (as he's walking out of the room) "Is that a varicose vein on your leg?"
Jack - "Fossils are dead. Dinosaurs go ROAR and then die." (Never told him this. Maybe those museum trips are paying off.)
Carter - "Yesssss!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Cold hard cash."
Jack - "Wook, Mom! A museum!" (pointing at the bag of his $5 bill)
Lainey - blank stares and confusion.
****after opening valentines from Aunt Mary including money.
Blake - "Hey, Lainey. We're scooping out a maggoty dear carcass over here for dinner. Want some?"
Lainey - "Sure!"
That should just about do it. Hoping your weekend is full of love and happiness. If you're without a Valentine obligation, go on your own to see my movie and know I'm full of envy. Don't forget the popcorn. Extra butter.
