1. One of our children had strep throat last weekend, which meant we declined an invitation to a Super Bowl party. We're all for sharing, but not germs.
To make a fun afternoon, despite the disappointment, we devised a family friendly competition. Enter in our family's Wii Bowl, complete with pseudo-names, winner brackets, and a trophy made from recycled paper products wrapped in duct tape. There was a highly sophisticated point system in which players strived to maintain the lowest scores. I came in fifth. Yes, I did no justice to my super hero name Wonder Woman.
3. My in-laws are getting a possible 'storm of the century' and I am still hoping for one good snow day. I briefly considered an impromptu trip to visit them...it didn't happen. Since I posted on Monday, we've had rain, snow showers, and a surprising burst of hail one day, but no large accumulation...sigh.
4. I made homemade mac and cheese on Tuesday. Ah, is there anything more cheesy, in a good way? It was taste bud bliss!
5. I made my youngest son a dragon puppet. Seriously, it is pretty cool. Its legs and wings can be moved by wires. Meanwhile, our attempt at origami faltered. We were making cygnets. My bird looks like a hummingbird. He asked his older brother for help, which worked out well. Though I am not sure if I have ever seen a yellow zebra striped cygnet. Or a green spotted hummingbird for that matter either.
Hope your week was fun, too!
