Chopstix

It's Wednesday night and there is a big snowstorm coming.  So not excited.  Last Wednesday, I walked the kids to school on frozen grass.  We had been driving them because it had been so cold but it's still easier to walk.  
I thought this was funny.  
That night, the kids had pizza for dinner.  
Eli insisted on cutting it.  

I cooked a nice meal for Aden and the adults.  
Thursday, Noah's teacher sent us word that Noah was unhappy I gave him Ariel's water bottle and on top of that, it didn't have a straw.  Normally, he would have had a tantrum but he said he was going to be flexible and use it.  Lol.  
Eli and I being silly that night.  


Korean food for Ariel.  
They all tried chopstix.  
Eli did pretty well.  
Eli did homework.  

He was so into his homework, he took it to bed.

It FInally Got Us!

It's Tuesday night.  Last Monday, Eli played whis helicopter indoors again.  As many people get hurt and as many things he breaks doesn't stop him from doing this.  
So we had some unfortunate news the day before.  Aden and Amy tested positive for covid.  They had cold like symptoms.  No one else was positive.  
Amy stayed in her room the rest of the week.  Aden stayed in the basement.  I took care of everyone.  Fed everyone.  Took care of the house.  And slept on the sofa.  Entertaining the boys is a full time job in of itself.  
Ariel helped me.  
Fionna had an x ray that day and had good news.  She was out of the sling.  
Both our moms were nice enough to cook some food and drop it off.  
Ariel practiced her cheer.  

On Tuesday, I smoked wings for Aden.  
He loved them.  
Getting the kids from school.  
Ribs and rice for Ariel.  
We worked on some Valentines.  

Sweet!
Ariel and I worked extra hard to entertain the boys.  

We even made cookies.
Nothing wrong with that.

Eat The Snow

It's Monday night at 8:30 and thankfully very quiet already.  Amy worked hard to get the twins in early.  Back to last Sunday.

It was realllllllly cold!
Ariel had cheer.
Eli played with his helicopter.  In the house.  Not the best idea but definitely an Eli idea.  
Eli's favorite thing is to watch a movie with popcorn.  
It started snowing!

He picked some up.  
He asked if he could taste it.  I said as long as it's not yellow.
He liked it!
Which Oreos should she eat?
Snow!
We actually got a decent amount but the temps went up all night and it melted away by the time we got up.  
Eli wanted to show me all his trophies.

Mousetraps

It's Sunday night and we are so ready for the kids to go back to school.  It was a rough weekend.  Back to last Saturday, it was cold!
Eli showed vector his doughnut.  
Have you guys started playing Wordle yet?  It's addicting.  
Off to tennis!
It's kind of hard to watch them.  

They come out to us from the back.  

We went to Dominick's in Washington's Crossing for lunch.  

Then we stopped by Juliet's house.  
The kids played and we chatted with Dave.
Cool hoverboard Juliet.
Dave showed us their mousetraps.  Ugh.  
That night Allison sat.  We went with the neighbors to dinner at a Greek place in Yardley.
