Aside from crises moments, we have managed to cook and clean a bit. Yesterday the kids and I deep cleaned the playroom downstairs. The volume of stuff under the couches was so unbelievable that I didn't even dare to take a picture! I now know where all the missing socks were along with hundreds of toys and millions of barrettes.
This morning, I headed out in a mini blizzard to buy food for my family. I left all the children with Alei and was thankful I did as I drove slowly through the snow and maneuvered through the crowds at the Commissary. It was also somewhat relaxing to drive through the snow, listening to the radio instead of Julia!
We are preparing for Gabriel's homecoming tomorrow; hopefully the snow won't be an issue for the airlines. Since I won't have any Gabriel pictures until tomorrow; here's his littlest sibling waiting for his arrival.
Elijah still spends much of his day admiring tractors, real or play, in any book or magazine that shows them.
This is his new 50 cent tractor from my favorite base thrift store; he has spent most of the day with it. He is still also doing the "please let me wear my pajama" thing; I don't figure it matters on a snow day!
