Today started early with goodbyes to Daddy. He's off to the office, and thankfully is in town for the next couple of weeks. My guess is that this little girl will hightail it to the back door right around 5:30 tonight when she hears the garage door open. It can only mean one thing: Daddy is home and he will most definitely get on the floor and play!
Once the lunch mess was cleaned and Annalyse was down for a nap, the boys rolled and decorated sugar cookies. Micah was convinced he was a human roller "that can make the dough as flat as tar on the roads." Funny, in all my years of baking, never once have I likened my rolling pin to a steam roller.
The boys came inside an hour and a half later covered in mud and were sent straight to the shower. No sooner was dinner done and I was off to get Annalyse in bed. I think she's coming down with a cold or maybe just teething. I don't know what is bothering her, but I do know I had her in bed and asleep by 6:30 pm. Once she was in bed Grady Lee even commented, "It sure is quiet now that all the whining is gone." Amen, my wise and observant son, amen.
And would you look at Micah! He has learned from me how to multi-task. If he can just learn how to use his hands while talking on the phone and have a baby on his hip while managing dinner in the background he'll make his future wife quite pleased.
