Frame-A-Day '12 Week 3: 1/15-1/21

January 15--What Goes Up--I took the kids to a local children's museum. Here, Earnest enjoys the 'ball room', which is similar to the one at the museum that we frequent but with a few more tracks of varying complexity.

January 16--The Box Stitch--The kids and I went over to my sister's house today for a few hours.  Their older cousins have many games and toys that we don't have, so it's fun for my kids to pull out different things to play with.  Here, my niece is showing Trust the finer points of the box stitch with gimp.

January 17--Bedtime Stories--Often, part of the bedtime routine is for me to read the boys a story or two on Imp's bed.  Earnest's favorite author these days seems to be Robert Munsch.  The stories are cute and usually have unexpected endings, and the illustrations are colorful and engaging.

 January 18--The Internet to the Rescue--Tonight when I had a craving for peanut butter cookies, I searched the Internet for something new.  I unearthed a recipe for Peanut Butter and Nutella Swirl cookies.  In my house of peanut butter lovers, these won't last long.

January 19--We're #1--...or at least, Earnest is.  We receive the Wii for Christmas and of the three kids, and without a doubt, Earnest has excelled at it.  In particular, he loves Mario Kart.  When I arrived at home tonight, he was so excited to tell me that he had unlocked new worlds, characters, and vehicle options.

January 20--I have photos from today, but they'd give away our location.

January 21--Winter Wonderland--The kids had a lot of fun playing in the new fallen snow in our backyard. Here is my entry for "chill".
