Happy Solstice!

Happy solstice to you all. We have a nice fire going (the one time a year we use the fire place) and the kids have been roasting marshmallows and making s'mores. They love this holiday. A friend came over with some really nice Haba blocks for Christmas present, life is good.

Even Sylvia learned how to roast marshmallows. You put them on a stick, point them in the direction of the fire, touch them, say 'Blech!' and throw them out... She preferred the chocolate for the s'mores instead :)

The kids made papers with things they want to get rid off like 'bad temper' and burned them. Although Kate made nice and sunny pictures to burn, not sure what that symbolizes. But fun was had by all.

Sylvia had a checkup yesterday, she is 24 lbs now. Exactly average, kind of unusual for my kids. The only way to weigh her was by me holding her, weighing me, and then weighing me without her. There was NO way she was going to sit or stand on any of the scales by herself. I now know that I weigh 135 lbs :)

Not much exciting going on here. We have all the christmas presents bought and wrapped, I feel very organized this year. OK, just christmas present wise, luckily it's not spilling over to any other areas of my life.
