just another winter day....

Darth Maul, aka Charlotte Claire, Camille, and Suzanne...Cam was too tired of walking, so Suze sat on the bench with them at the grocery store. We had been at "kids' camp" at church today, where the older kids, aged 12 to 18, did activities with the younger ones. Sledding, a bouncy house, cookie decorating, crafts, and a kid-friendly lunch of hot dogs and pizza rolls and rice krispy treats, Swedish Fish, mac and cheese...there was also face painting....so of course Char being a #1 Star Wars nerd....had to be Darth Maul.


I can say one thing for winter: it promotes coziness. And cozy is a good thing. Camille chilling with her thumb-y, and Old Kitty, Suri, Duke resting on Jonathan....

I got out and about today, again, and tomorrow is another college basketball game. It is going to snow again in the evening, blah, I don't like driving in it, especially all the way from the city.

Paul is leaving again on Sunday, for a week...in Florida! Is that fair, I ask? Hmph. I know, I know, he is going to be working, not chilling on the beach. But still.

So I have been thinking of taking the kids to a small city not far from here, just for one night. Just to get away a little bit. The little girls love nothing more than packing their bags for a trip, even if it's just a small one.

There are lots of kids milling around here this fine evening, so I shall give up this writing endeavor for now....
