i “won” some foofa vans for anna on ebay. they are her new favorites. i like that they are slip-on so she can get totally ready all by herself. she can do velcro too, but sometimes the tongues give her some trouble.
the night before isaac’s sleepover, the school announced they were dismissing early because of predicted inclement weather. it was nasty and icy, but first, some pretty snowflakes fluttered down and we took pics.
then. we had the birthday sleepover, as documented in a previous post. and headed to livy’s birthday party.
the next morning, i got to work on ezra’s cake. since anna had missed out on all of ike’s birthday sleepover festivities and cake consumption, i enlisted her help as the initial frosting removal technician.
yesterday. it was 72. degrees. and we went to the park with some friends. for hours. so much fun. anna and shira played well in the open space. (sometimes in closed environments, they are arch enemies).
the park bathroom was closed. there was a port-a-potty. anna is terrified to use it. i don’t blame her. she could fold right up in half and slip right down into that hole. not to mention the obvious disgustingness of a port-a-potty. anyhooooo. we roll with a potty in our car at all times, so when she took a potty break, i took a picture. :).
when we got home, we went out to collect eggs. the warm weather must have made our chickens happy, because we found 9 eggs. we have 10 chickens, so that’s a pretty good take. they lay every 25ish hours. so we figure we’ll get 8-10 a day when they are in full force.
