remember that gigantic piece of chocolate cake?

I have chicken thawing on our bedroom window sill. I taught Luke what a Wet Willy was before naps. I ate Christmas cookies for lunch. All morning, I climbed up blowup house steps holding Norah and Hazel together in my arms. Then, I slid down the slides with them on my lap, which is apparently against the rules. I have keifer curdling on my countertop. I'm 10 days behind on our family Christmas card, in comparison to last year. I took up knitting on Monday night. I'm finding that it's a bit harder then I imagined. If my mom or MIL offered to watch the children overnight, I'd round up Mr. Marvelous--and all our ski stuff--and head to the mountain miniature ski hills 'bout an hour north of us.

And, we tried this again:

and did some of this:
...and it turned out exceptionally magnificent.

(I told you life with lots of little people is one gigantic piece of chocolate cake.)

I had to laugh when you mentioned how you love kicking the snow sludge off of car wheels...cause I LOVE doing that too. I'm even tempted to go up to other people's cars and do it! haha.

Great post. I can do crochet but knitting boggles my mind. Although I do want to try again maybe after the holidays.

Glad the sled ride turned out better.

And I love Christmas cookies for lunch, and breakfast. :)

It looks like you have a big helper there. And, if you do get to go on that ski trip, I'd join you.

I have it on good authority that you're not OFFICIALLY behind on Christmas cards until Valentine's day. Keep sledding!
