It's a Beautiful Day!

Spent a quiet morning in front of the TV watching Barack H. Obama inaugurated as the 44th President of the United States of America. The First Family was stunnung...I have to mention Michelle's dress! WOW! And the girls were adorable too... The music and poem were fantastic and the President's address was uplifting. I must admit that I was disappointed when the crowd booed President Bush...so not necessary in my opinion. I'm excited to witness this memorable day... Yay for the Obama's and Yay for the next 4 years!

Happy MLK Day

Julius came in our room this morning and said "Tommorow's the day Barack Obama will becomes our 44th president!" (He actually learned this watching cartoons this morning...awesome.) I've been working on explaining the significance of the holiday today - not an easy thing to explain to my young kiddos - but I'm trying.

I thought we would spend some time today doing some community service to celebrate our National Day of Service in honor of Martin Luther King, Jr. However, this is what we are doing instead...

All 5 kids are sick and I started the morning with a migrane. So, we're continuing our "take it easy" weekend and spending the day resting and relaxing.

I read this great post on Bossy! this morning. She shares a great FHE outline for tonight featuring the Presidental Inauguration.

On another note, Henry and Hudson celebrated 7 months yesterday. Unbelievable!

Happy MLK Day!

Craft Bug

I don't know if it's the time of year or the weather or what...but I've been dying to have a little time and energy to craft something. I knew I didn't have the mental strength to pull out the scrapbook supplies - so I searched the internet (mainly the blogosphere) and found some great ideas. I found this adorable skirt this morning on this blog - it looked adorable and pretty easy.I LOVE the fabric she used - The fabric I used I've had since I was pregnant with Bronwyn...I just never got around to using it. I'd love to try one with contrasting fabric on the hem and waistband like the sample one. I just wasn't patient enough to wait for Tony to get home so I could run to Joann's.So thanks House on Hill Road! As of this afternoon Bronwyn has a new skirt and most likely a few more to come. She loves it and has been twirling around for an hour...

New Year's Celebration

Since the babies are still sick - we decided to stick close to home for New Year's Eve. We had a small celebration with the kids. We had yummy Nachos for dinner.
Then we all spent time coloring together. All the big kids love coloring - but Julius especially loves it right now. He was in heaven with Mom and Dad taking turns coloring with him. I think we watched a movie at some point...but I can't remember what it was.
It was fun just to relax and enjoy spending time with our children. At the end of the night the kids popped poppers of confetti and went right to sleep.
Happy New Year!
