This and That
I've unstuck my foot from the toothpaste that cemented it to the floor when I stepped in it, I have a fresh cup of coffee and a smoke, and it's as quiet as it can be with 2 TVs making racket in the house, so I thought I'd pop in and say hello.
We've had a kiddie weekend around here so the echos of little voices are still resounding through my mind.
"They're knocking my tower down, ON PURPOSE."
"I don't want a top on my glass of juice!"
"I'm being orangrey."
"Alexis's reindeer looks like it was run over by a big truck."
"But the markers are washable so the blue will wash off."
"But we're using the potty." (This was in answer to the query about why 3 little girls were in the bathroom together. I suspect that had something to do with the toothpaste cement).
We've been eating a lot this weekend too. Friday there was take-out pizza and a spinach salad. Yesterday we had hamburger steaks, mashed taters and gravy, green beans, and peanut butter fudge. Today we chowed down on some chicken-n-dumplings, pinto beans, cornbread, mixed veggies, brussel spouts, oatmeal- raisin cookies, and rice pudding. (My scales are probably cringing in the corner of the bathroom.) Jerri and Jami are responsible for all the sweet goodies cause you can't even freeze my attempts at fudge long enough to firm it up.
Jerri and Jami also did some Christmasy crafting with the kiddies after dinner while Nanny and Jillian thought about a nap (which ended up in Nanny-baby conversation and no nap).
