So Hayden has been expressing quite a large amount of personal independence lately that makes us react in one of two ways: exasperation/anger or laughter. Today was a great day for the laughter end of things.
In an effort to clear out our cluttered garage, I decided to finally sift through all the crap and photograph a few things to advertise on Facebook, make a Goodwill pile, and label the boxes of stuff that we're keeping. To begin, I put the stuff to be photographed in the house while I straightened everything else in the garage. Some of those things included old car seats and a baby swing. Among other things, this is what I discovered her doing:
In addition to her silly shenanigans today, we've had several snow days where we've done some fun things. Here are a few:
So there was a small taste of our massive amount of time spent indoors. We've been to school three times in the past two weeks. In addition to all of this, we watched the Toy Story trilogy about 8000 times as well as Word World, Elmo, Dora, the Backyardigans and Wonder Pets. There was also an abundance of coloring...I'll get some pics of that art work and post them sometime but just to give you a perspective, she colored every single page in her Mickey Mouse coloring book. And she took pictures...lots and lots of pictures. When I uploaded all of her work to my computer, there were over 300 pictures. So we bought her this. I will post some of her photography in yet another post sometime very soon as well as some of our snow shots. But for now, this is how we spent our time during the double blizzard. Loves and hugs to you all! :)
