What a turkey!

The blankets did not comfort him.

Megan made the lunches before Kenny went to bed. He kept getting into the fridge, trying to eat a dessert or take a capri sun. We had to pull out the scare tactics, the Turkey. Kenny then at arms-length carried the turkey and threw him down to the basement, all the time yelling, "No." Then we put the little poultry hater to bed.

Love language

I read this book called the 5 Love Languages of Children and Kenny's is touch. To fill his love tank, he needs to be held even if it's not convenient.

Cereal, milk, bowl, fork?

Nobody could convince him that he should use a spoon.

Jelly Belly Concoctions

Bottom of shoe really tastes that way, Patrick. Now, rootbeer float is pretty good and fruit salad is yummy.

Pickle Jar update

It's done, much to Mary Jane's sadness the pickles have been eaten.

A little milk while sleeping

It's 10 pm, Mike and I are in the family room watching tv. We hear Mary come down the stairs, she gets a jug of milk out of the fridge and walks all the way to the basement. At this point Mike and I follow her because we are starting to think that she isn't awake. In the basement she put down the milk and Mike brings her upstairs. She was a little disorientated and cuddled into a ball to go back to sleep. I tried to give her a sippy with some chocolate milk but she didn't hardly have a sip.
I think I remember that my brother Jim slept walked when he was a child. We're going to have to watch her. At least at this point it is kind of funny and cute.

-17 degrees

The kids had Tuesday and Wednesday as a "snow day" because of the super low temperatures. Adam told me on Thursday that the faucet in the small bathroom only had hot water. Oh no, Mike put the space heater in there and we hoped that when pipe unfroze it hadn't broken it too. Luckily, we caught it in time. When the mercury hit 25 degrees it felt like a heat wave.

Say Cheese

I made some more onion soup with swiss cheese on the top and Kenny wanted to eat the cheese.
