Well, maybe not famous. But their pictures still grace a pediatric dentist's website that was completed last year. The only picture that is not one of my children is the obvious one of an entire family seated in a row. So there's a claim to fame, kind of.... except that nobody really knows who my kids are or who took the picture. Check it out here:
When it's cold outside, which is often, the kids get creative in finding ways to entertain themselves.
They made this fort using our kitchen chairs while I was mopping the kitchen floor.
More often than I can count, they spread blankets or pillows all across the floor to walk on.
Cleaning them up does not happen as often.
Lindy is commonly a form of entertainment.
For a Family Home Evening activity one night, the kids acted out the story of The Three Little Pigs.
Shad was the wolf. I was the videographer/photographer.
And Drake never ceases to come up with some sort of activity. This particular one was a "carnival" in his bedroom.
There was a math game with pennies.
A toss the ball in the bowl game.
And another tossing game. Fortunately, this carnival was free.
More often than not, our children charge us money to participate in their games. Lucky for us, it's still pretty cheap.
There is a local candy shop that sells novelty candy and ice cream. It brought me back to my own childhood with candies like the little colored dots on paper and the rock crystal candy sticks.
It took the kids a while to pick out one item each. Too many decisions.
But in the end, they were very happy with their choices.
Hooray for candy.
