Daisy on Sunday. I picked up some vanilla wafers and today I will see if she likes them. Another sheep blog I read gives them as treats. Maybe it will be a way to get Daisy to be more affectionate although I believe she is past that point.
Elijah (with his friend Jordan) doing what he does best which isn't a whole lot. :)
Olivia and Lucas' new addiction: puzzles. Now to just keep a close eye on them so pieces aren't lost. I had to toss all their puzzles for lack of pieces and just started picking up some new ones. Lucas does the 20-piece puzzle. Quick and easy for him allowing for success. Olivia is working on 100-piece puzzles.
What is your morning like? Mine is a little different each day depending on if Emily is here at my house and what time Nick has his first class, but today....
5:30am: Dad gets up, showers, lets the dogs out.
6:00am: I wake up and make Elijah's lunch; bring dogs in; get the fire hot; go upstairs.
6:20am: wake up Elijah for school.
6:25am: back to bed for an hour (his friend Jordan walks over and catches the bus with him...we are not a morning social kind of people so it is best to give him space to get ready. May as well sleep).
7:30am: Wake Emily; make her lunch; slug down coffee; check email and facebook.
7:50am: Wake up Nick
8:05am: Emily goes to the bus; check blogger for updates on my favorite blogs; slug down coffee; pick up toys/blankets in the living room.
8:30am: Nick leaves for school; Lucas wakes up and plays xBox.
8:31am: Make a blog post; pause when Olivia gets up; put clothes in the dryer; start another load of wash; bring Olivia downstairs to play xBox with brother while I finish this post.
8:56am: I'm done; time to get breakfast for the kids, dogs, pigeon, chickens and sheep.
Then I'll be doing this....
I have two days to make four costumes: a cheerleader, vampire, witch and 6 ft. tall lion. Why do I do this to myself? I'm pretty sure costumes from the store are cheaper than fabric these days. I guess I've been sewing their costumes for the last 17 years....old habits die hard.
