Oh What Do You Do in the Winter Time...

... when all the world is cold, dead and grey? The cold weather has caused Emily to be as stir crazy as I am. We have played Barbies on and off. Sometimes I can't stand to play another day of Barbies and we find other things to do- like My Little Pony Memory. That is a LONG game! Or Uno or Candy Land. We have made lap books for homeschool. We read a LOT and we admit to watching more movies than normal. I mean hey we can only watch Wall-E, Night at the Museum and Curious George for a billion hours before we get sick of them right?

I have scrubbed a lot of dishes to keep myself busy and I have just about had it for that form of business. I have read books, painted and lets not forget the endless hours of house hunting during this cold depressing time. Actually the house stuff has taken a good chunk of our time and the kids would tell you the same. I can't even count the many houses we have walked through.

Emily and Lindsey play pretty well and fight just as well too. But there are definitely times when I just HAVE to play with them for the sanity of all. And other days where NOT playing helps my sanity. I had a friend help show me how to work my sewing machine I got for free from a friend and made two Barbie skirts for Emily. They are a little odd and you can tell they are my first pieces. I sewed on some snaps with them and for now, they are kind of fun.

Good job on the barbie clothes! I am so ready for spring. It has warmed up a little, even though it looks nasty outside, we've made it to almost 50* ;)
