I am cleaning the kitchen. (We still have a bunch of baby gates in our house for the dogs) Maya and Ryleigh are eating lunch in the living room. Lucky is circling the coffee table like a shark, looking for dropped morsels. She can be very annoying when the kids are eating, so I usually put her behind the gate in the kitchen. I didn't today. All of a sudden I see a piece of chicken fly into the kitchen, followed by the dog, and then Maya who quickly shuts the gate, trapping the dog in the kitchen. Without a word, she goes back to her lunch. I find the whole thing amusing. End.

So I picked Allie up from school today and noticed that she had a really pretty sweater on under her coat. It was not a sweater I have ever seen before. She was certainly not wearing it when she left the house this morning. So I say to her, "Al, where did you get that sweater?" and she says, "lost and found, I thought it looked like mine.". (she has never owned a sweater that remotely resembles the sweater she now had on). So I asked her,"you thought it looked like yours, or you thought you would like it to be yours?". Allie says, "well, I really like it, could you get me one like it?". I told her that we would see but that she needed to return that one tomorrow. After we had the whole stealing talk. Little stinker. Oh, and the sleeves were rolled over about six times and it hung down to mid thigh. She is a girl who will do anything for fashion.

It is cold outside! We have a bunch of snow, and went sledding this weekend. The girls were thrilled with the entire experience...well, the walking UP the hill was not Allie's favorite part, but Lilly and Maya were troopers! We stayed out about an hour at our favorite hill. This past summer the city made the hill improved for sledding by adding bumps and smaller hills within the main hill. It was so much fun, and my butt definitely felt the hill work the next day. (We did pull the kids up the hill toward the end because we wanted to stay and sled longer and they were tired of walking up! ) Yes, I am a sucker.

On New Year's eve, we had Chinese food, played board games, visited withy Mom and Dad, and watched The Three Stooges. Maya made it until 10:35, which is about an hour past when I thought she would. Allie made it until 11:53, at which time she crumpled on the couch. We prodded her and hooted at her, and she rallied, but as soon as midnight hit, she begged to go back to sleep. Lilly made it, but was happy to go to bed as soon as it was over. We had a great night as a family, and just may make this a tradition.
