I made a new header and it is the pinnacle of my graphic design skillz.
We finally got well enough to get our booties out of the house yesterday. the girls have needed it so bad. They have been at the stage where they just keep telling eachother "Don't touch me and don't look at me!!' Where do they get these horrible things to say? I know I was probably the perfect non fighting angel as a child. riiiiiiiiight.
We went to story time and they built houses out of frosting and marshmallows. Then we took Addies friend with us to the indoor playground and then she came over. And Addie yanked out her other front tooth in the midst of all this.
So now Addie has no front incisors anywhere to be seen and I'm thinking every tooth Harvey grows in Addie loses one. Some cosmic tooth trade or something.

So we are all sick. Except Harvey and Danny. But all the females are sick. Is it horrible to get annoyed when your kids are sick? It's like I just want to force health on them. We've watched so much tv we are all going to have our eyes pop out of our head. And I've warned Eva over and over if we watch way too much TV our eyes will probably pop out of our head and Chilly will probably eat on of our eyes when it rolls across the floor. So watching too much tv is extremely risky. So our possibilities for January have been reduced to possibly be healthy enough to leave the house. Possibly not have to buy more kleenex boxes. possibly be healthy enough for us to celebrate Eva turning 4 at the beginning of February. And all I have to say to my family who is going to Florida in like 3 weeks is........I wish you the best time in the world and you won't once think about all of us sad souls sitting in snow and sickness and sniffles. I wish you joy and warmth and health. no sarcasm at all.

Wilhelm Kempff plays Beethoven's Moonlight Sonata mvt. 3

found this old picture of Eva sitting in a a cloud of stuffing...

I kind of like January. It's long empty stretch lends the mind to all kinds of possibilities. Like yesterday the girls were begging me to take them ice skating. Sure! Why not? Then I thought about the fact that it was 20 degrees out. And I have to carry a baby.....and Addie and Eva both would need alot of assistance. So that never happened. BUT it was a possibility. Instead we spent the afternoon building a "contraption". Picture this: An orange balancing on a tower of blocks. Behind it is a trash can. In front of the tower are a huge line of dominoes. Behind the dominoes is a slide made out of books. Behind the slide made out of books a ball is teetering on the edge of a chair behind that another slide and at the tippy top of the book slide is a crazy wooden wheeled dog. The dog went down knocked the ball which started rolling which knocked the dominoes which knocked down the tower which would make the orange fly into the trash can with a flourish. It was epic.
It really didn't work either.
I told you January was all about possibilities.

I had some nice piano moments last night playing Beethoven Sonatas. The kids and Danny were watching G Force in the background. I wasin my own world. I love the moonlight sonata. The WHOLE moonlight sonata. It's way awesome. Anyways, if that isn't a good day I don't know what is.
