Frame-A-Day: Week 1: 1/1-1/7
January 1--Happy New Year! This was taken at 12:02 AM...two minutes into 2011. I had told the older two that they could stay up until midnight, thinking that they'd drop by 9:30 or 10 AM the latest. Boy, was I surprised when they lasted until midnight! I was more tired than they were, I think.
January 2--Sweet Dreams, Boys--Second night for Imp in the big boy bed. The first night wasn't so bad once he settled down. I am not sure how long it will be before I feel confident in letting Earnest sleep on the top bunk and not worrying about either his falling or Imp climbing up and then falling.
January 3--Our Little Scholar--Trust is working on her homework prior to heading off to ballet.
January 4--Budding Engineer--Earnest and Imp received this train table for Christmas from Nana and Grampy and Imp is enthralled. Earnest has sort of outgrown it, but I think they'll both love it. Anyway, Imp gets up in the morning and makes a beeline for it. I shot these photos before he would even let me get him dressed. It's true love.
January 5--Can't hear you, Bert. I have a banana in my ear--This reminds me of that old Ernie and Bert exchange of "I can't hear you, Bert, I have a banana in my ear." Earnest grabbed his banana this morning and started saying "Are you going to the birthday party?" Sometimes he is so goofy.
January 6--Chess anyone?-- Trust received this chess game from Santa for Christmas. Grampy received one as well. I don't know how to play chess, either, but I thought she might enjoy the puzzle aspect of it. I admit that I thought it was electronic, so it's probably a waste for my dad, but oh, well. We'll see if she tries it out...it'll probably require someone (me) sitting down with her to try it out.
January 7--Silhouette Debut--I tried out my Silhouette cutter last night for the first time. I'd say my first project was a hit. The kids loved their "I love you" messages, as did my husband. Note that in the interest of anonymity for now, I had to cut out the letters that are at the bottom of the photo. It did spell out "I love you Trust". You can see some miscellaneous letters behind her.
