Homemade Playdough...

...still as annoying as the store bought stuff, but at least I know what is in it, so when the baby crawls around and eats what the big kids drop its ok.

At least it kept them entertained for a long time, for several days.  Now it only comes out everyone once in a while, but still seems to entertain them.  John is also entertained by the sweeping that I do afterwards, he has something for the broom and will follow it around like a cat on a laser point.

Another Dusting

Well, at least I got a pathway out of the deal!

 Getting into trouble!

I am working on getting back into the routine of posting.  Be sure to subscribe to the email option (on the right of the page) so that when I postdate a blog post, you get it and don't have to scroll through everything.  I finally got around to downloading my videos so I am formatting them for the computer and trying to get them online.

John's Eating Real Food!

Sort of...
 This was the last of some hard gingerbread cookies, ugh that was a mess! But he didn't gag on it, which is what he does with pretty much everything these days.
 I am not sure that he actually ate any of the pasta, but he sure enjoyed trying to get it in his mouth.  It was hilarious when it would just hang out like fangs and he didn't even seem to notice.  Of course, it more often than not ended up on his lap, and he couldn't figure out where it had all gone.

Some indoor winter fun

 This place sells playground equipment, but on certain days you get to come in and play.

 Baby in a box, plus crayons, lets mommy get some much needed clean up done in the kitchen.

 So, John and Mommy were the only ones inside this day...but the older kids really had to get some energy out.  It was just so cold!

 At least we know he's a Skees, this is how they all sleep, arms up under the head.

At the playground place again, on the trampoline.

On an organizing kick

 Saw these little holders and thought it would help the spice cabinet a little.  It helped a LOT!  I haven't finished it yet, otherwise you'd get a better idea of inside.

 I couldn't take the closets all looking basically like this, so I have started reorganizing the house and doing my annual clean out of stuff!  It feels good.  Will post the after of this closet later, but let me tell you, it is much better.
See...here is just one small part with the wrapping paper all organized on the door, which is much better than the silly thing that we had before, but didn't really ever hold the wrapping paper.  And you can sort of see that I now have a bookshelf in the closet, which holds my scrapbooking stuff, and that wasn't even IN the closet picture above!  So happy about getting organzied....
