Snowy days and swimming lessons

Our week has been full of swimming lessons and a lot of snow . . . which the kids haven't minded in the slightest, since several years ago we began a tradition of eating cinnamon rolls for breakfast when we woke up to fresh snow (we've decided that we may be in for a lot of cinnamon rolls in Castle Rock . . . and if we ever move to Alaska or Canada, we'll have to change our tradition!) After returning home from swimming lessons this morning, we got back in our footie pajamas (well, the kids did!) and decided hot chocolate and popcorn were in order! Emily recently took over hot chocolate making duty, so she was very excited! Anna and Samuel discovered Emily's body crayons--and quickly began painting Samuel's toenails and face!

Beds and Brothers and Sisters and Such!

A couple of weeks ago, the kids woke up one morning and emphatically declared that they were ready to swap rooms (they've debated about this for many, many months). We now have a boys room (that couldn't possibly have any more firetrucks in it) and a girls room, with an awful lot of stuffed animals! So far, everyone seems quite happy with the new arrangement!
