Quote of the Day

This morning I was helping Jack go to the bathroom and as I'm getting some toilet paper ready for him he looks at me and says, "Mommy, Dad folds his toilet paper!" It was in a tone that said I was doing it all wrong too. I looked back at him and said, "Well, Mommy crumples it!" It just goes to show how much they are watching and listening to our every move and also how depressing that we can't even go to the bathroom without two kids in the same room!

Cold snow!

Michigan has been extremely cold the past few days with windchills in the negative teens. With two kids though, you just have to get out of the house! It warmed up a little bit yesterday so we all went out to shovel and play. Oh yea, we have also reached well past the average snow fall amount for winter and we're only a few weeks in. Jack likes to build snow forts for his boats (you'll see them in his hand in one of the pictures) and Eleanor just likes to run down the side walk as far from the house as possible! It takes a while to warm our hands when we come in, but the payoff for the energy they've let out is definitely worth it.

Tant Que Je Vous

As long as I have you. The title we gave to our 2008 year mix CD came from a picture I found by an artist called The Black Apple that I discovered a couple of months ago on Since we only gift our CD to family we thought everyone else might at least like to see the playlist. Happy New Year!
