Mummy!

Last Saturday we went to Cincinnati to see the mummy exhibit. It was fascinating. Unfortunately they didn’t allow pictures in the exhibit, which made me sad. They had mummies from Egypt, mummies that were naturally formed due to heat and acidic bogs and so on, and more recent people who had been mummified somehow when they were entombed in church crypts. Rosie was enthralled. Ada was kind of horrified. Henry kept pointing and saying, “Rawr!” Then doing his fake scream. Tyler...

Lauren’s 4th Birthday.

I am mighty jealous of all the snow I keep seeing on Facebook and on the news. We’ve gotten basically nothing. We did get a couple of inches that quickly melted with the sun a week or so ago. Then yesterday they changed our forecasted snowstorm to rain. We got tons of ugly cold rain. Sad. There’s not a single flake in the forecast coming up. We’ve been denied any fun snowfall for this winter it seems. My kids are disappointed....

Best Friends Forever.

Here are a few pictures from my phone from recently: Sunny day mud pie! Toes in the mud. Kept taking off his boots and socks until I gave up. The boy feels an unavoidable urge to reach all of the electronics and push all of their buttons, no matter what. His sisters did this. They also did this to him. The first snow of the winter on Saturday morning, which has already melted. This is the view from my kitchen window....

Tired.

Fitbit tells me the most ridiculous things about my life. I walk up to eight miles a day in my own house. Go up and down twelve flights of stairs, again in my house. The best thing Fitbit tells me is about my sleep. It’s like pure justification for feeling tired and bleary. It shows I have a lot of awake times at night. Not just a lot but a whole lot of awake times. For example on Friday night I was laying in bed...

Big Fat Snow Flakes Falling. 0

Snowy.

This morning someone rang our doorbell at 7 a.m., when it was still dark out. Tyler stumbled out of bed because the dogs started barking and the baby started crying. He went downstairs and opened the door only to find someone wanting to shovel the snow on our sidewalk for booze money. In the dark. On Saturday morning. Are you kidding? By then the baby was awake. The dogs wanted to go out. The sun wasn’t even up yet. I don’t...

A brief respite from the cold.

We’ve been enjoying the warmer weather lately. For the past two days it’s been in the mid 50’s with sun! I am so ready for spring. We’ve had no snow this winter, just lots and lots of ugly gray days with freezing temps and just-above-freezing rain. Yuck. The kids have played outside for hours during the past couple of days. Sun. SUN! And Ada with her short hairs!! Excuse his crusty nose. He’s had his first cold ever and I practically...

The First Haircut.

That’s right, Henry got his first hair cut. I put it off for as long as I could, but he was starting to look like a homeless person without access to regular hygiene. We weren’t sure how he would do sitting still for someone to trim his hair, so we wanted to go to a kiddie place. Unfortunately the only one was an hour away! Luckily it’s right by my parents’ house, so we stopped in to get Henry’s hair cut...

Henry at 17 Months Old.

Tomorrow I have the follow up appointment with internist (doctor) for my giardia. I’ve been feeling great the last couple of days, but this morning I woke up with that ominous burning crampy feeling in my lower bowel. It’s been exactly a week since I last had an episode of misery. Are you kidding me?? So far nothing bad has happened yet. I just don’t feel that great. Maybe it’s a coincidence? :( Anyway, we’ll see what the doctor thinks tomorrow....

Santa came! 0

Christmas Day Photos!

Walking in the living room to see that Santa had arrived… It may look like he didn’t bring much, but Rosie and Ada got iPad minis from us. Small in size, big in dollars. Dimple! Rosie specifically requested a black newborn doll from Santa Claus. I took everything out of the packages and put it into storage tubs before wrapping it so that I wouldn’t have to fool with ripping stuff out of packages on Christmas morning. The clean up was...

Gingerbread House Decorating!

I never got a chance to post pictures of the kids decorating their gingerbread house a week or so ago. That’s Ada’s special stuffed animal, Birdy. Henry’s hair constantly looks like this in the back. When you get it wet it curls, but it never stays even with gel. I took three pictures in a row, and I realized later in one picture Ada is licking the gingerbread house! This was before he learned to break out of baby jail. It...
