Ever wondered what it would be like to eat a marker??
How about a "Twistable" marker that you first have to TWIST to even get to the marker... and then somehow BITE the tip, YANK it out, and then chomp on it long enough to make your diapers GREEN for the next 2 days!!

The clean up!
Thank goodness for NON-TOXIC markers!!

SICK boy!
This is the first time that one of my kids has been really sick. We've done fevers, sick tummies, and all of that before, but that's all been pretty random and short lived. Well, Ethan caught a yucky bug that has made him so, so sick. It's so sad! This was the 3rd full day of it, and his fever is still a burnin'! I tried to take a picture of him, but he was not having any of that, so I will share his funny quotes from the week:
at dinner: "mom, sick boys can't eat green beans."
at bedtime: "mom, sick boys can't get a spankin' when they talk in bed at night."
when Ben and I woke him and gave him some more medicine late at night:
"Daddy, I'm still alive!"
random: "the germs are fighting and bonkin' their heads inside of me
and hurting me!"
to grandma on the phone: "the germs are killing my body!"
when Ben told him he could not go to church: "daddy, your not my favorite player anymore!"
Well, with us being stuck in the house, we decided to celebrate St. Patties day between the cold compresses, ibuprofen, juice, movies, and popsicles. We made green cookies and a couple of loves of Irish Soda bread! Yummy!
Hopefully, he will be better soon, but that's not the end because I put Kate to bed tonight with a FEVER! GRRR!

SNOW DAY!! Note: Those are wool socks on Kate's hands!
She does not have good mittens, so we improvised!
She loved eating the snow...
She finally just "dived in"!

She had a hard time walking!

Snow Angel Time!!
Moving on to the sand box toys/snow toys!!

Look closely and you will see our snow guys keeping watch on our snow castle!

Nothing like a snow pop!
