So I thought we would take advantage of the “snow” day and go see a movie. The kids have been dying to see Alvin and the chipmunks the squeakquel. I got a babysitter for the babies and took my friend R and her two kids D and M went with us. We were a tad late and I missed the first little bit because I was getting popcorn and drinks, to ensure that everyone stayed in their seats and paid attention. They all did great; the movie was funny and cute. We had decided to go to McDonalds to get some of the Alvin toys; I hadn’t talked to the kids about this so this was the conversation that I overheard.
D and M and Judah and Josiah were waiting outside the bathroom while I took Avrah, while we were washing our hands this is what we heard. (Of course I heard Judah because he is the loudest)
D: we are going to McDonald’s for lunch
Judah: Is your mom paying or is mine?
D: I think your mom is.
Judah: Ahh man, she never lets us get the toys.
Never fear, we got the happy meals and they got the toys. (I know you were worried)
It was a peaceful afternoon and I got another triangle finished for my hat.
Tonight’s meal was chicken tetrazzini, it really wasn’t a winner. I think it may have been a combination of me not following directions closely enough (used too much pasta) and the recipe just not being a good one (at least that was what Jeremy said. Thanks Babe) probably won’t make that one again for a while.
Got to go throw the babies in the tub.
