Playing with Colorforms:
Anna's Magnetic Potato Head Creation:
Large Circular Xylophone:
Anna's Favorite, the floor piano:
This was a great field trip for our day. We did go with a homeschool group, so we were technically in school, weren't we? LOL! There was a school there as well, so I think we are safe.

That coveted picture, my version(not to bad if I do say so myself):
Pictures with Clifford (I was too cold to do much else by then):
Five minutes after getting in the car, she was like this:

When it is 34 degrees outside and cold, wet, and very drizzly, with a wind chill of 28, that is when your six year old will inevitably ask to go to the park. UGH!!
Alright, I know it is icy and colder elsewhere, but it down right cold for us being in Texas and my darling daughter is begging me to go to the park. I have side-tracked her with wrapping Daddy's gifts, (No dear, you will NOT find out for 10 more days what you are getting...and NO bugging Anna to find out.) watched the Barbie Nutcracker movie, read a book, finished school, washed dishes, cleaned the stove, etc, etc. She STILL insists on going to the park. Sorry kiddo, but not in this lifetime. I love you very, very much. But I am not going to freeze my behind off in freezing temperatures to watch you play at the park. Sorry!
Any other hints to side-track her will be greatly appreciated.

Picture with a very tall nutcracker:
As you can see we had a good time. Sorry, no pictures of me. it was a very crowded place and I didn't feel well, remember! LOL! I am very glad I took her though as it is an experience she will never forget.

On this bed:
And these two little girls (I know old picture, but it was handy):
Have to do with my sweet little girl ending up like this:
Here is a song that might jog your memory:
Five little monkeys jumping on the bed,
One fell off and hit her head,
Momma called the doctor and the doctor said,
"No more monkeys jumping on the bed!"
Alright, you get the picture! My darling daughter and niece have been told over and over and over again to not jump on the bed. Well, since they are only 5 and 6, and jumping on the bed is soooo much fun, one of them was bound to get hurt eventually. Anna fell on the piled up blankets and smacked her eye into the railing. (No, they are not in the picture. We had the extra bed from underneath rolled out over the weekend for niece to sleep over.) This was on Sunday and today, her eye still looks like this. It is really bad to look at, and the stares of people when we go out...ugh! She is just fine and you would think she learned a lesson, but nope. Today she was still playing on the bed. LOL! She rolled off ours today. I guess some of us have to learn the hard way. Does she have to take after me SO much?! LOL!

Nothing new here, just work and work and clean. I am sure every working, or even stay at home mom knows that. I am trying to finish off my Christmas shopping and then just keep sane. I hope everyone is doing okay. Take care and God bless. I promise to try and do a better post later.
