First Snow

We had our first snow of the season...before Halloween! Yikes! I was pretty mad about it and actually spent a good 10 extra minutes in bed that morning pouting. The kids, on the other hand, were thrilled! Morgan was at school all day, so Elle and Miles got all dressed up and headed out back. Elle told me that "Sorry you don't like winter, Mom," and vowed to eat all of the snow in the backyard so I wouldn't have to have winter. :) Five minutes later I remembered that my kids can't stand the cold for very long. In fact, it took more time to get the kids bundled up than it did for them to play outside. Luckily, Mom keeps a nice stash of hot chocolate in the pantry.

Together We Can!

Every year, Morgan's school does Reflections. They hand out a topic and the kids can either write a paper, do some artwork, a dance, or photography. This years topic is Together We Can and this is what Morgan came up with to submit.

It is a picture of friends cleaning up a park together. I think she did an awesome job and I am so proud of her!

Where do they get it?

I had Elle and Miles with me at Bed Bath and Beyond the other day. Miles was touching EVERYTHING in every aisle we walked down. I was pretty sure he was going to break something and I would have to pay for it, so after telling him not to touch things about 25 times, I stopped, knelt down in front of him and said, "I am serious! Stop touching things!" As soon as we started walking again, Miles pats himself down from the neck to the tummy yelling, "I'm touching myslef! I'm touching myself!" I sigh and tell him not to touch anything in the store. He continues patting himself saying "I'm in the store! I'm touching me!"
Where do they learn this?!? Luckily he is the most adorable little man in the world so I couldn't bring myself to actually get uspet. :)
