Woman on the edge...

is what you get when, against repeated requests to leave things in the box "'til we're ready to set them up", your oldest son dumps a box of Lego Farm, lego combine, lego tractor, and Knex tractor/harrows, with a dash of Playmobil for good measure-ALL TOGETHER!! (Please ignore the fact that this woman was probably more than a few sandwiches short of a picnic to begin with, seeing as she was the numb nut who was responsible for the kid having all that stuff to mix together!! Oiy!!)

After having my mini breakdown, I decided that today for school we will be working on sorting skills.....

Guinea Piglets!!

Ok-technically "pups", but I think guineapiglets sounds cuter! LOL! Are these not some of the sweetest lil things you've ever seen? How old do ya think they are? A week? Two or three maybe? Nope!! These are just hours old!! Yep! Baby guinea pigs are born fully furred, eyes open, running around! They were just born this morning!! (I've been worse than the kids, running to check mama piggie every morning! :) )Still-it was such a surprise to carefully lift her hidey place and have an explosion of piglets go everywhere!!

Here's a pic of their mama, a day before she had them: (if it felt like a long wait to us, I bet it felt even longer to her!!)

Jesse loves his guinea piggies! :)

Another reason to love Playmobil....

Take one creative, excited little birthday girl, one frazzled, completely behind mama, a chocolate cake (thankfully baked the night before!), some frosting, and a bunch of horse-y themed Playmobil, and you get.....

Good job, Tabby!! Happy 5th birthday!!

Happy New Year!

We had a good one-even though we were all in bed before midnight! LOL!
Although it was such a freezing cold night, we took the kids to the early fireworks in Stony Plain. The only warm place there was in the bathrooms!! Luckily for Jacob, he was snug as a bug in my Amautik! Lots of good things to eat there-hotdogs, hot chocolate, popcorn and mini doughnuts! Us mom's were like baby birds, popping pieces of food into the kids mouths, so they didn't have to take off their mitts to eat!! One of Tabitha's friends from ballet class was there, so it was fun for her, and me too (the friend's mom is a really nice lady!) The fireworks didn't last long, but all the kids (even Jacob!) were enthralled! Then we dashed to the van, turning the heat up as high as it would go!! At home, the kids enjoyed a nice warm bath, and then crashed! Mommy and Daddy soon followed suit!!
