ringing in the new year

While I was dismantling our Christmas tree New Years Day and Alexi was on call at the hospital, the boys had a busy day of play.

Abbott played and played and played Christmas carols he recently learned.


The boys wrote a play.
Cal: We are the bad brothers. You like us right? Yes - good!
Abbott: 3-2-1 start the show! I go incognito dude!
Cal: It's fun up here.
Abbott: It is but it's almost
The End

The SAC (secret abbreviation club) features prominently in everyday life around here. This is the entrance; if you don't know the code, you can't come in.

Lecia -- Thanks so much for the peek into your family. This brings back so many memories of fun times stuck indoors when my two now 20-something daughters were little. One of their favorite things to do was take cushions and pillows off furniture and build intricate cities, castles, highways or whatever was the structure of the day. That probably wasn't too good for the furniture, but it did wonders for our sanity!

Sounds like kids who keep themselves entertained and I'm sure you know how lucky you are :)

Very funny! You forget when the kids leave how they created their own lives at home. I wish I knew how to play the piano, what a wonderful lifetime skill. Thanks for sharing!

Two very creative and playful souls. It's obvious that you and your husband spend a lot of time with these sweeties- and that you encourage the creative juices to flow.
Happy Days~

Happy New Year to you guys! Looks like you really made the most of your time together at home. And the waffles look delicious.

Today is our last day before school starts again, and we're catching our breath.
