Second Day Of The Year. Quirkiness Is Strong

Last night I went in to check on the kids before I went to bed.  As I always do.
Keith is adorable.  Can you see the Spider-man costume half on him?

This morning I went upstairs and found art class in session.
Faye proudly declared

"Mommy, I'm a hippo!"

My father in law told her she looked like a hippy since she had painted all over herself.

For lunch we went out together as a family and Jeffrey and I watched the children run around the burger joint laughing madly.

The kids really do listen to us.  We even have proof.  They have begun to put their toys in time out.  In this picture we see the broom closet.  Iron man has been there for three days.
This is especially funny coming from Faye since she has only been in time out 3 times in her life.

I can never check on my kids without waking them up... pitfalls of an old house, I guess.

And my kids are in timeout daily!

What a wonderful day!!! All the pictures made me smile, especially Faye's. I'm proud that you relished the moment than be concerned over the painted outfit. I would have stressed over the outfit :p I hope the rest of the year is as lovely :)
