Every now and then....
we have a BIG country breakfast.
Eggs, Hash Browns & BACON !!
When I got up this morning, my lovely Medium boy said "I'm starving".
Which is highly usual.
He is always starving.
Except when he is not hungry.
So.... after I made the coffee...
I grabbed that package of bacon from the bottom drawer
the one that says ! delicious, salty, yummmy !
oh, I mean low salt bacon.
And Medium boy comes running into the kitchen
sees me with said package in hand
and says "Is that MEAT???"
after we crack up and take a picture of that precious face with his fingers wiggling...
I begin to cook that yummy bacon...
Once the pots and pans clang about a bit...
down the stairs come the bug...
walks sleepily into the kitchen announcing....
um... okay... wait over there with the rest of the vultures! hee hee.
I mean cute hungry people I love to cook for!

I am still planning on buying a couple more packets online of a few specialty tomatoes, and then I will move on to buying (and mixing) soil for my upcoming container garden. I also have to plan out my calendar by the predicted last frost so I know when to start each set of seeds. Fun, fun, fun. Who knew veggies could take so much planning. Oh, but how I look forward to eating them!
Remember when I said I spent a few days pulling up bulbs and flowers and such ... well, I looked in the garage today and it seems my narcissus bulbs were sprouting. So, I actually did get to garden today! It was a balmy 56 degrees so I headed outside and put all the narcissus bulbs into two beds at the front of the house. I encountered two or three bulbs in each bed that were also sprouting, so I left them to come up among the narcissus. I think a couple were hyacinth and tulip. I cannot wait to see how lovely those beds are about mid March.

controlling where the other two went....
It is at the foot of our backyard!
(and yipping at the other two)
this one is standing in front of the other... maybe the baby and parent?
They were just getting ready to run off.
They were standing straight out from our deck on the rise.
These are our fabulous pics (too cold to go out close) of the foxes we were visited by today. Caitlyn heard them calling out during schooltime, so we took a quick break to see where they were and what they were up to.

Tall girl eating the popcorn
This is tall girl getting yahtzee with sixes!!
All that to say we had fun!
Sssshhh don't tell the boys... they were fast asleep! Poor little guys both have colds. (which really means Chris and I did not sleep more than an hour or so at a time last night!)

"I love peas and corn and if they could grow peas and corn in the same patch... that would be GREAT"
Just the cutest things they say.
I wonder if he will feel the same way this summer when we are weeding. I know he will LOVE eating it all fresh! He is my veggie guy! Tall girl cannot get enough of them either... we never have leftover veggies!!

on a side note... Mommy pulled it.
Well... it had been loose for a bit... then he bit into an apple and it hurt.
later that night (after the apple biting)
Mommy kindly wrested with him
(I say kindly, because I verbally wrestled with him)
He finally agreed to let me give it a tug...
when fear hit him and as soon as I touched it he RAN across the living room
saying... "no I'm not ready".... waving his arms
saying: "Wait, wait, wait..."
But I am laughing
and then Chris starts laughing....
so he shoots us both a scowl,
but we keep laughing...
Medium boy quits scowling long enough
for me to explain
WHY I am laughing...
THE TOOTH IS IN MY HAND!
he says "what?, OH"
then he got 50 cents from the tooth fairy that night!
There you have the story of the first tooth.
Except we forgot to mention that the one right next to it is just as loose as it was...
But NO WAY NO HOW is he letting Mommy or Daddy or Dr. E (our dentist)
ANYWHERE NEAR THAT TOOTH
and believe me I tried, and Dr. E actually looked at it today when he was taking impressions for my new crown for that front tooth I lost.
(which is going to cost us $965 we don't exactly have yet
and that thing will be ready in 2 weeks)
but, I digress...
Dr. E told me about a little trick to "ease" the very loose and almost completely sideways in his mouth tooth right out
except his version included Ora-gel and I couldn't find ours... sorry little dude.
Medium boy was adamant that no one was touching his tooth
until tonight, of course...
when Mommy convinced him to let her tie dental floss around the loose tooth
and ... after it was strategically tied on, but hanging from the tooth
he says "I look terrible"
well, duh.... you have a strand of dental floss hanging
down from your front tooth draping down your chin!
but after that
he let me tighten the floss... just so...
the tooth came out
which is fabulous... because it looked really silly all sideways in his mouth
(though he says he is mad at me because "I look terrible")
silly guy... those new teeth are practically halfway in already
and fabulous because the tooth fairy put another 50 cents under his pillow
though if you ask me, he should get more
just cause he let me pull them!
Now on to the next cute pic...
I really love this toy.

Slightly harder to see, Mommy and Tall girl getting their facepainting supplies
for a missional facepainting extravaganza!
(right after eating a full dinner)
Now... that is all the Christmas day pics. Enjoy!
