Hot Chocolate Weather

We're snowed in today. Well, I guess "glazed in" would be a better phrase, at least that's what all the morning weather coverage called it. Regardless, it was enough to keep Zaya home with Mommy and Mim this morning.

I'm in a much better mood today (I know you all care) and, even though I've had to stop my children from playing tag with baseball bats and they wanted lunch at 10:20 (which they got.) things are looking up.

Anyway, I've also discovered, thanks to my lovely mother-in-law, a new Christian singing group which I think I'll enjoy. (I downloaded their Christmas album this morning.) I'm sure I'm way behind the times and you've all heard of them already, but here you are anyway. They're called Go Fish, and although I haven't yet plumbed the depths of their musical careers I am certainly enjoying their Christmas music (they have two albums of that) and my MIL loves their album "Party Like a Preschooler". It is a disc of childrens classics that are performed in a very peppy, danceable style with lots of bass. (Hey, I'm a drummer, I'm allowed to like a little bass.) I suppose they're a bit of a boy band, but I like harmony, so it's okay. I don't have any scarring memories from New Kids on the Block or NSync to try to overcome like most of my peers.

I'm going to leave you with a video of Mim telling me a story about Goki yesterday.

I'm glad you're in a better mood- I care! I care!
Anyway, yes being snowed in with little ones is sometimes quite entertaining. Mim seems to be enjoying her new kitchen, is that the one you got her for her birthday?

The epitome of cuteness. It makes me wish we had had video cameras when you were little.

Too cute!

I have to say that I am shocked that you haven't heard of Go Fish before now. I do not enjoy music, and avoid it most of the time, and I know who they are, lol. If I kow who someone is, they are pretty famous, because I don't know very many bands at all.
They are very good, aren't they?
