A day at the museum

We went to the Scheile Museum today. Tommy and Payton like to come here together a lot. Today I joined in the fun!

Baby it's cold outside!

While we have yet to see snow this year we are finally getting some downright chilly weather. It got down to 12 degrees last night and supposed to be colder tonight. While we were going to get some dinner we bundled up Payton and she insisted on wearing her sunglasses. "She wears her sunglasses at night....." :)

Teen Spirit

Well, you may have noticed there are not many posts on here about the teenagers in the house. While they are here and yes, they still exist they just don't do much to report on. So I took a couple photos of a day in the life of the big kids. They are doing well in school so they can often be found doing homework, but most of the time are watching movies and playing games. I guess it could be much worse.... we are pretty proud of them lately.

Lazy Days

Happy New Year! We had an uneventful New Years Eve. We ate pizza, watched movies, and managed to stay awake until 2009. The pas couple of weeks have been a little boring for all of us. It was nice to have a break for the Holidays but I am ready to get back to our usual activities. I'm sure Payton is too. Without story time, dance, and play dates, she pretty much plays with the dogs when I am unable to entertain her. Today was her first day back at dance and she was very excited. I had to drag her out of there (which was partly due to a choo choo in a toy box she spotted).

Payton loves to brush her teeth...easy on the toothpaste!
