Life at the Rogers house.

Things have been pretty exciting around here. This past weekend was a long weekend for the kids. They got out early on Thursday and no school on Friday because of parent/teacher conferences. Then Monday was a Holiday because of Martin Luther King JR day. Monday night we were invited to friend Sheri's house. The kids had home made pizza while the adults had fondue. It was so much fun. While we were there Sheri got a phone call from the school district to let us know that school was being canceled on Tuesday because of "possible" flurries. I could not believe it, it wasn't even snowing yet and they had already canceled school. But hey, the kids were excited. I bet the people from up north would burst out laughing when they here something like that. I remember living in Holland and I don't think school was EVER canceled because of snow. Oh well, the kids had fun playing in it. It was funny, because I was still in bed when I hear Joel getting up and opening his bedroom door to go to the bathroom and I hear his say "YES". He was so excited. So I got out of bed got all the kids dressed and went outside. It did snow off and on for the rest of the morning but it really didn't stick. But there was enough snow (or should I say Ice) for Joel to make a small snowman.
Josiah didn't really know what to do. He looked like the little Michelin man in his blue jacket and his red gloves. He loves playing outside so he was in heaven. He was so upset when I had to take him in.
Then yesterday was my "official" laundry day. I had been trying to do laundry all week but I finally got to finish most of it. So while I was folding my laundry Josiah came and sat on the bed with me. We had a lot of fun just playing. I guess he was really tired because at around noon I look over at him and he had fallen asleep with his "Night-Night" (his blue blanket) and his car. So of course I had to take some pictures.

Cool pictures. I'm sorry I'm such the slacker and haven't put up the pics of the fondue night. My computer has been acting strange...and it shuts down during the middle of stuff...so I have been trying to wait till Eric figures out what's wrong...but so far....we can find the source of the problem...so I'll just have to try again and hope for the best!!
