blogger down

Geesh it has been a while since I posted. I usually post from the office and for whatever reason I haven't been able to log in from there in quite a while. #2 says I need to clean out my cookies, but I swear I already did that. Anyway...
Christmas was good. We had a great time and the kids were sufficiently spoiled. We unexpectedly had the chance to drive to San Antonio and spend some time with all of my Dad's side of the family. It was really nice.

We are taking the kids in early February to go skiing in New Mexico. I am pretty sure that Miss Thing won't be hitting the slopes, but the snow and time away will be great for us all. #3 has returned from the UAE and will be coming with us. An extra set of hands is always a welcome thing and we are so glad to have the chance to spend some extra time with her. We invited #2, the Back Cracker & Baby Bean but the little one's distaste for the back seat of the car has been prohibitive.

In closing...On the way to school a few weeks ago Super Son was very mad at me. Something in the lines of I made him carry his own lunch box and then he forgot his drink and he was very thirsty. He bellowed and griped for 15 minutes as we drove. I reminded him every few minutes that when he was done I would love to talk to him about it. After a few reminders he looked at me with dagger eyes and said "Stop talking to me until I am done acting like this". The morning improved dramatically after I honored that simple request. If we could all be so honest with our emotions and needs things would be much simpler.
