It is cold...and not the good kind of cold. Like I said in my last post, I can handle the cold that comes with snow. But the freezing ice cold is not my friend. It doesn't even make winter the least bit enjoyable. LUCKILY my kids don't care about how cold it is. They still play outside until they are forced to come in. I count my blessings on that one because Christmas break is coming up and my goal is to survive the two weeks without being committed.
McKay finds the oddest places to fall asleep. I have resorted to child proof handle lock on the inside of her room...that is my way of "forcing" her to nap. Maybe she is past nap stage but I will keep trying. Nevertheless, this week her place of choice was her trundle bed. Keep in mind that the opening was about 18 inches...how she got ever got in there is beyond me, let alone falling asleep.
Because this post wouldn't be complete without my photography efforts, here is a slide show of our session. Yes, it took almost 30 minutes to get a picture with McKay smiling. Yes, we had to resort to using duck tape to hold her still. Yes, this reiterated my thoughts on professionals. What would life be like without photographers, seamstresses, mechanics, etc. I know what it would be like, EVERYONE would be committed.
McKay loves her cereal much to my chagrin. I usually cook a nice breakfast for the kids, however, McKay always wants cereal. Doesn't it look like she is praying for cereal?
Taylor's birthday is tomorrow. He will be 9 years old. The time goes by so quickly. It saddens me to think that half of his time in our home is up. Look for a post later this week as we celebrate his big day.
