(click here for today's pictures)
  • Tara is out Bunko-ing tonight (actually, I don't think they've played Bunko in about 10 years but I do think they are eating out)
  • Whitman jumped in bed with us before we were able to get out of bed this morning so another good reason to stay in bed a bit longer.
  • School was calling so we all got ready, grabbed breakfast and then me, Whitman and Keaton were out the door and headed to preschool.  Soon they were picked up by Grannymom and Grandpa.  Keaton made a HUGE art project with Grannymom depicting each of the months and pictures to illustrate each.
  • Homeschool day here for the rest of the folks - I think the highlight was the Mentos/Diet Coke experiment. Of course, they've done this experiment before but Tara said it was part of the lesson today so no one complained about doing it again today.)
  • The kids are already busy getting their Valentine cards ready - today's major project was helping Campbell create her cards that involve her Crayola melting machine.
  • A few movies, some lego building and downtime before I got home.  Then we started on supper - mashed potatoes are a favorite of most folks around here so no complaints there either.
  • Showers for everyone and then we settled in to watch American Ninja followed an episode of The Wall (the current favorite).  We also managed to make sugar cookies with icing and sprinkles.  
  • Whitman headed to bed first without any fussing (he's pretty worn on school days and spending the afternoon with the grandparents.)  Everyone is in bed now @ 9:30 but not sure any of the girls are asleep yet - still hear quite a bit of noise. I'm sure they are trying to staying awake until Tara gets home.
