Favorite things

My favorite thing that I've gotten to say to my kids so far this year:


Yes, I know that your sister is wearing a helmut. You still can't hit her in the head with your scooter.

Oh happy day

Do you know what is better than being able to see running water outside, like in the video below?






Anyone?





When you can see running water *inside*!


For the last week we haven't had running water. Well, that's not exactly true. We've had water gushing out of a leaky faucet in the shower. And we've had the water turned off. 8 )

Of course, the part needed to fix said leaky faucet was only available at one plumbing supply store in the entire city - and they, of course, were out of it for a week.

I am so excited that I won't have to run downstairs to the basement every time I want to wash my hands tomorrow!!

If I were a butterfly......

Way back in November, TinyDancer's school had a special Mass for Thanksgiving. The kindergartener's read the petitions and sang a song. You can't really see TinyDancer in this video as she is on the opposite side of the alter from where we were sitting. If you look really really really hard, you can see here in the center, facing the very front of the church. She is wearing a long sleeved white polo shirt.

The video is cute anyway.

Alphabet song

EasternStar is working hard to learn the alphabet. Last year for Christmas she got these fridge magnets from my brother. She loves to push the button and have it sing the alphabet. Here she is singing the parts that she knows:

Happy New Year!

Welcome 2011!!

The girls had a great time ringing in the new year last night. We went to a neighbor's house for a yummy appetizer dinner and treats.

The little ones and I hit the hay early, but Stranger and TinyDancer stayed up to ring in the new year with the neighbors. I guess that I get the "LAME-O" award! 8 )


Here's to another great year!
