False Alarm!

It all started at 6am this morning when Sadie decided to wake up. As soon as she wakes up I hop in the shower, if I don't do it then, my shower usually doesn't happen until...well....who knows! When I take a shower, Sadie is just devastated  that I would leave her behind, so to keep her entertained, I hand her the house phone so she can press buttons to her heart's content.

After my morning shower, I heard Heston wake up and I got him out of bed and got the kiddos in their high chairs and ready for breakfast. Then I heard a knock on the door. A sheriff's car was parked in my driveway. I welcomed the officer in to the house, having no idea what he was there for! He proceeded to tell me that someone had dialed 911 from this location and the dispatcher heard a child's voice in the background. I stared at him for a couple seconds and realized that in the 2 minutes I took my shower and handed Sadie the phone, she must have dialed 911. What a smart cookie! I couldn't teach her to dial numbers if I wanted to! I thanked the officer and after we had a laugh about the situation he headed back out.

After the false alarm from this morning we kept to ourselves. I haven't let Sadie play with the phone after that, and in lieu of the flashing buttons on the phone, I let the kids go wild with my canning lids and some kitchen utensils and they seemed happy enough.

Oh Sadie, if you don't keep me on my toes, I don't know who will!

Ice Cream Sandwiches and Christmas

I have made the terrible mistake of buying ice cream sandwiches, which Heston is hooked on now. He opens the freezer and gets one for himself and then passes one to Sadie. I'll be doing laundry or coming in from feeding the animals outside and I see this! I can't even get mad at them because usually Sadie and Heston's faces are so priceless. Case in point!

You caught me mom!
 For Christmas, I was trying to carry on the tradition of my childhood of opening pajamas on Christmas Eve, so that they were in new pjs on Christmas for pictures. Here, Heston is helping Sadie open her present.
Say "cheese" Sadie!
I was hoping to take all these great pictures on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, and then I only got a few shots, so here are Heston's new  pajamas on Christmas day as he's opening his tool box from daddy-I mean Santa.
On New Years Day, the kids helped me with my resolution to keep things more organized by pulling out anything and everything in the kitchen cabinets.
 Sadie found a spoon!

And then Heston got up close and personal with the camera.

Until next time!
