Checking out a new pizza place!

(click here for today's pictures)

  • I knew that today would be a busy day so we just slept in!  The kids were up on time but my Whitman, who has stopped getting out of bed by himself, also slept late.Robby and I did too.  Robby was off today and it was a pretty perfect day.
  • The kids worked on their school this morning and then we started on a few crafts-Whitman's craft was the most fun (marble painting).  It was a pretty relaxed morning and I think that everyone enjoyed it.
  • Before lunch I had really wanted to work on science but the kids all ended up outside playing basketball.  I walked outside once to tell them that it was time to come in but they were playing so well we just ended up having a late lunch after we finally did our science.
  • After lunch, the kids helped me clean and straighten the house.  Then Robby loaded up everyone but Whitman.  Campbell and Keaton went to Grannymom's house to spend the night over there.  They were beyond excited about their night out of this house.
  • The others helped Robby take Grannymom and Grandpa's Christmas card picture and then they went to try out a new pizza restaurant and even stopped to do some shopping.  
  • Back at this house, Whitman laid down for a nap but never had a nap-he called me upstairs time after time until I finally gave up and just let him get back up and watch his Thomas.  I stayed busy and didn't set down until the others had almost arrived-Whitman and I did have a few minutes to snuggle on the couch.
  • When they came home, Reagan ended up convincing Robby and I to help her make something for a gift and then we went upstairs to work on a scrapbook as the kids watched their movie.  Then bedtime and my Reagan could not have been more excited about sleeping in a room all by herself.
