Crazy hat day and Friday night

This week was "Read Across America" week at school and the kids all had special activities. To end the week with a bang, the elementary school had a "Hat Day Parade" with crazy hats in honor of Dr. Suess. Their hats had to be made out of recycled materials and be silly. Sooo, Paul fixed Kaylee up with a "milk and cereal hat." She loved it.

Friday night is always "Junk Food & Movie Night" at the Cooper household, but tonight has been a little different. Alyssa is babysitting and going to a sleepover, and we are fasting movies as a part of the 30 day fast that our church is having. So, needless to say, we have made this a lazy night. We ordered in Chinese food and then everyone just dispersed to hang out. I caught a pic of David grinning big over a Kaylee eating a Reese's Peanut Butter cup, I caught Ryan lounging watching cartoons and eating Twizzlers, and like father like son, Paul and Jonathan both glued to computers. I also happened to catch a lovely shot of my oldest daughter's less than tidy bedroom. Haha! And as for me, well I am up to my neck in homework!!!

March snow & peanut butter!!!

Well, despite the uncharacteristically warm winter temperatures we have had, we woke up this morning to lots and lots of SNOW!! It is supposed to snow well into the night and having below freezing temperatures. And here Alyssa and I were thinking we could go spring clothes shopping!!! LOL Jonathan and Alyssa have been waiting all winter to see their first real snow, so I am glad that it came. Although next winter, they may be about tired of it after months and months of it! Of course Ryan and Kaylee enjoyed it as usual, and got their clothes completely soaking wet playing out in it. David, on the other hand, did not seem to care for it, and cried to go back inside and under the warm and snuggly blankets!!

As if we needed yet one more person in our house who loves peanut butter, David had his first peanut butter sandwich the other night. After one big bite he looked up at me and said, "Mama! Ummmmmm.." He made a complete mess, of course, and by the time he was done he even had peanut butter in his ears!! Needless to say, it was straight to the bath for little man!
