Today is only Wednesday. I still have 2.5 more days to go before the weekend. I am officially running out of ways to keep the kids occupied while I "try" to lay around. We don't have cable and there are only so many DVD's that I can rotate for them before they start a revolt.
It was time to bring out the big guns today. My Theory: Have them help me with a super easy sugar cookie recipe and then they can pig out all they want afterwards. It has worked so far, but now I am a tad worried about the sugar rush and then the subsequent sugar crash. Hmmm. I don't think I thought this all the way through.

|First time Ethan has smiled all day!|
