It's Snowing!!!

It's snowing outside! Yeaaaaa. Most of you know I hate snow and in fact, hate cold weather in general, so you may be asking yourself why then, am I so excited about the snow???? Well, because, my husband is a school teacher. So snow brings with it the exciting possibility that both he and our little darlings could be home tomorrow....then I will have help for the day!!!!
I have been pretty lazy today. We had a friend over for a playdate for Brice and the twins. I made a couple videos on onetruemedia and other than that- I've played with Sydney. I know i t'll catch up with me this evening when I have 9000 loads of laundry to fold and put away. Looks like we won't be going anywhere this evening though, so it should be warm cozy night, perfect for housecleaning.
I discovered long lost video footage of the twins on Albert's computer. Apparently its an album we hadn't saved to shutterfly. It's full of pics and videos of the babies at the hospital and shortly after comming home. I am so excited!
Looks like Brandon and Jackson will be home from school in about 30 minutes. Darn, I was just thinking about settling in for a nap! Brandon is finally back at school today, though he tried his darndest to stay home. He came down at midnight claiming he couldn't breathe. He isn't really that good of an actor though and Albert looked at him and said "Brandon...if you're talking, you're breathing!" Too funny. He has also started the habit of swishing hot water in his mouth just before taking his temp in an effort to raise the reading on the thermometor. This is his last ditch effort after being busted for running the actual thermometor under the hot water (it was a bit of a give away when he came down wearing a sneaky grin on his face and holding the thermometor and it read 106.8!) So now we have to go through a whole routine when taking his temp. We have to have him sit next to us for 10 minutes prior to taking the temp to make sure he hasn't "warmed up his mouth" Then we have to make sure he keeps it under his tounge properly and isn't trying to blow hot breath on it to make it rise (another of his tricks) He can't get up and walk around or else he'll head to the bathroom and turn on the faucet. This kid is a handful I tell ya. Good thing I love him so darn much! He drives me crazy!!!
He slept out on the couch last night complaining of his "breathing difficulties" When he sees the snow I'm quite confident he'll get off the bus miraculously cured and ready to play!!!!!

Oh the joys of motherhood! You know my kids never got that adventurous. But then I homeschooled for quite a while so they knew they weren't going to get out of doing much anyway...mean mom! Actually they did get out of work if they complained enough. They had to make it up, though so....
