Hey guys! The feeter's on!

So named by Christopher, our resident wordsmith. This phrase, shouted with great joy, will bring my children running.

(We have heater vents all over the house, but for some reason, it has to be the one in the kitchen that everyone huddles around!)

How else do we spend cold winter days? (and I realize that temperatures in the 20s are almost laughable to those in Northern climes, but down here, that's mighty cold! So much so that Christopher was in tears when I made them go outside for 10 minutes to "run around and get some fresh air"...)

We bake! (and I'm sure several of you are asking yourselves, "Why does it look like Reilly's crying?" The answer lies in her hands. The poor girl did an exceptional job preparing muffins for everyone as a special treat, and just as I was getting the camera, she burned her hand...)

...and we have a FANTASTIC time all weekend long building one circuit set after another! (Thomas was greatly enjoying making the propeller launcher...)

Unfortunately, right in the middle of writing this post, I was alerted to the fact that one of my children just threw up... so I know how I'LL be spending the cold winter day -- tending to the sick and doing laundry! *grin*

Looks like a fantastic day! (Except the burn and the throwing up :) Merry Christmas Ouiz!
