Two Extremes

The weather this winter has been extraordinarily odd. For instance, the weather last week was so warm the kids went barefoot.

Where as this week, it is the frozen tundra.

But one bright spot about the yucky weather, you get mornings like this.

Artistic Rendering

We like to draw around here. 
Here are some of the more recent efforts. 

"Tiny People" by Elsie, Age 2
Not half bad, if I can accurately remember the older kids hand-eye-coordination at this age. 

"Uncle Josh"
A portrait by Ian, Age 4
He uses a more modern approach versus the more traditional feel. 

Not all change is for the best

A while back, I told you all about my new nickname. It was a hard pill to swallow but when given in love, you just roll with it.


However, I would give anything to be "Big Momma" again.

I now have a new nickname.

Elsie is obsessed with the PBS cartoon 'Super Why'. And she and Ian have assigned each of their family members to a character.

David is Super Why, Lillie is Princess Pea, Elsie is Little Red Riding Hood, Ian is Woofster the Puppy,...

And I am Pig.

Elsie and Ian have been walking around for the last 4 days hollering "Pig! Pig! Where are you Pig?".
"We need you Pig!"   "Pig, can we please have some milk?"

Oh, for the good ol' days when I was just big and not a pig.
