This child is in on her plan too. He is amazing! He brings in armful after armful of wood and keeps the fire going. I think he has figured out if we are there visiting he doesn't have to do as much school work. I tell ya....he's a smart one!
See the food!? The girl-child is even in on this! She decorates it all pretty and who can resist a beautifully decorated cookie??The third child keeps Bubby busy. They play and scream and fight and play and scream and fight...see a pattern here? They also find a way to drag out EVERY toy in the house and bring it to the kitchen. The baby is real cute...but ya gotta watch him. He'll steal your cookies and not think a thing about it. This is were the food/heat coma starts to set in. The Professor's Wife puts on a movie and the kids can't move. They are glued to their seats and I have to pry them loose about 4pm so we can go home and I can load the dishwasher and look like I've done SOMETHING during the day. But ya know....I can think of worse ways to spend a very cold, windy, prairie day...eating soup, baking cookies, watching a movie and knitting with my friend.
Thanks dear friend. Hope your weekend is just as cozy.
