A Cold Winter.

I've lived here most of my life. 
It's never been this cold.

I love extreme weather.
I think it is exciting.

Knight Hat

Our Little Bear (who is four) is very imaginative. He loves pretending and dressing up in costumes.

Our boys are good friends with two other brothers. And those boys love swords and knights. They even have a knight costume.

So naturally, our Little Bear wanted a knight costume. And I told him we could make one. We made a cardboard sword and shield. This hat (helmet?) took a little longer to make. With all the sleep depervation and potty training (of the Middle Bear, who is two), I’m surprised I could get anything made.

Two funny things. And some New Year's resolutions.

Or maybe I should call them "embarrassing things" that happened over the Christmas/New Years' week.

1. My uncle had a brand new camera. He was holding it. And as I was giving him a welcome/hello hug, it flew out of his hand and fell to the floor. And it's broken. He'd taken about 6 pictures with it. And even though the camera's demise was not all my fault, I was still embarrassed.

2. We were on our way to a New Year's Day party. All five of us. We don't travel light. So I was carrying either child or a bag plus the veggie tray we were bringing. As our host opened the door, I was approaching the steps and somehow the handle of the tray detached from the bottom part which held the veggies and dip. Everything fell all over the sidewalk! Tomatoes rolled into the bushes. Cucumbers and carrots got stuck between the cracks of the sidewalk. And the dip's container cracked open and leaked french onion dip everywhere.

3. We got the Middle Bear a Plasma Car for Christmas. He likes it. But the Little Bear (the biggest brother) always seems to get to ride it. Anyway, I ride it in the basement after they go to bed. It is seriously the most fun toy in our house.
