A Slow Monday

I am sick, and Moms don't get sick days. So we have been having an easy day--very little work, a lot of playing, a lot of Mommy lying on the floor while the kids use her as a prop/climbing structure/fence. I thought I would post a few pics of the last week or so, while my 1 year-old runs circles around me and plays with my can of Caffeine-Free Diet Coke (which, fortunately, she hasn't figured out how to open. Yet.)

1-5-09
It was very cold that day, but since there was very little snow on the ground, no wind, and the ground was frozen, we could play outside without getting wet. I've learned that the kids can stay outside longer in very cold weather, rather than when the temp is in the low 30's. There's no mess and mushy snow, so they don't get wet and stay warmer, longer.

"Mommy...where did our corn go?"

Free at last, free at last...Thank God in heaven, they're free at last....

Some of our gardens, frozen and dormant. How I miss them....

Yogurt. Preschoolers find comedic value in everything.

She has to copy everything Sissy does, so she now refuses to be spoon-fed.

So cute. So innocent.
(Who does she think she's kidding?)
Nursing Dolly.

Nursing on the go...she's seen that done quite a few times.

If only I'd had the camera set to "video" when she as burping Dolly. Since Dolly can't burp on her own, Liesl adds her own sound effects. Sugar 'n spice an' everything nice....

Waaaaaiiiiiiittt a minute, here. Ava just turned ONE, right?! I could swear that in these pictures, she looks like she jumped straight to two years old or more. RUNNING off the deck like that? Feeding herself yogurt (looks like relatively successfully) with a spoon? Wowwwwww.
