They predicted right, and it's been snowing off and on since early afternoon.


Just the other day Alex said to me, "Use your imagination. It's a fort, not a mess." I guess I need to work on getting back my imagination.

Couple more silly quotes:

Emma: "Grandma's not a contractor, she's a Good Will girl"

Alex: "We should put Matthew in a wine (whine) bottle.

Emma: "But his big fat head won't fit in the bottle!"

Emma (aka Sassy Girl): "When I tell you to look at the yo-yo, you look. Is that clear?!"

Joseph: "It made me feel like a criminal!" talking about how they took pictures of his mouth at the dentist. Holding a piece of paper and turning for side shots.

Every time I hear a big crash (which is quite often)... "I'm OK Mommy!!"

And one from long long ago, Alex: "It's noisy outside" every time something was scary to him.

laundryDon't remember where I found this but, the definition fits for our house.

And thanks to J & M for sending this valuable info on to us:

Hang on to any of the new Minnesota Quarters if you have them, they maybe worth much more than 25 cents.
The US Mint announced today that it is

recalling all of the Minnesota quarters that are part of its program featuring quarters from each state.
This action is being taken after numerous reports that the new quarters will not work in parking meters, toll booths, vending machines, pay phones or any other coin
operated devices.
The problem lies in the unique design of the Minnesota Quarter, which was designed by a team of Norwegian specialists. Apparently the duct tape holding the two dimes and the nickel together keeps jamming up the machines.

YAY! The girl's got her sense of humor back! I'm stifling my laughter because it's 2 A.M. and everyone else is asleep.

Did you ever come by to get your award? My week of oblivion has resulted in partial memory loss. AACK! With what was already gone, I'm now in DEEP POODOO! ;o)
