Jason was of course my constant companion, he played Angry Birds while Matt entertained himself with some light reading; there was an intermission where I really got a kick out of watching William do the chicken dance, and we really just all layed around on blankets on the floor for a few hours eating junk like hot dogs, cheetos, and m&ms. What more could you ask for, other than a chair to sit in?? Next year Matt and I will be off the floor like civilized people :)
Moving on! William lost his second tooth this weekend, finally!, and was visited by the tooth fairy! It's funny to hear him talking with a lisp now :) It seems like it took him forever to lose these first two teeth - he's been waiting a long time to catch up with his friend Dusty at school. So far the tooth fairy is two for two with remembering to visit William at night and pick up his teeth :)
So, what else? I picked up my Santa from the pottery place this past week, I think he turned out pretty great! Now the question is, will he sit on my window sill until next Christmas, or will I actually make the effort to take him downstairs and put him with the rest of the Christmas decorations? Time will tell - I've been known to let things go just that long...
Matt and I had a date on Saturday night, we had a babysitter in & we went skiing! Well, I went skiing and he went snow boarding. On what was probably one of the coldest nights of the year. Crap it was cold! We got there at 5pm, took a break at 6:30, and left I think by 8:15. The low Saturday night was about 15 degrees. Tonight (Sunday) it's supposed to be 7. Thank God for indoor heating, no?

Wish me luck! I also have to make sure William finishes his science project due this week, his topic is 'Astronaut' and while I was out lost at the craft store today William and Matt worked out the details of the game he made up, and tomorrow we have to put it all together. Matt leaves in the morning for another week-long trip, so I'm on my own again. At least it isn't snowing a ton here and I likely won't have to shovel myself out. At least I hope not. Fingers crossed!
And finally, since the kids have off from school today (Monday, teacher work day...) I actually have a craft for the girls to do! Evie and Sarah both have some bottle cap necklaces that are just SO cute, and after seeing Jen from Tatertots and Jello link up her gift tag tutorial, I've had them on the brain and have stalked down the supplies necessary to make a few of these. Or 100. Whatever. The local craft shops didn't have the bottle caps or the magnets, & I found a place online to get pretty much everything I needed, but in bulk. And then I went to Michaels today for paper and stickers and lost I think at least an hour gathering up the rest of the 'pretties'. Anyway - I'm sure these look much better in my head than they will actually turn out to be, but I have a TON of stuff to practice with :) And Evie and Sarah are excited to make them. I guess I can spare a few & just let them have fun, before I take over and make mine.
