It's winter break here at our house this week and we've done a whole lotta nuthin' and no one seems to care. We went to Kai's play group yesterday and off to Border's so Lydia could use her giftcard, I love shopping at bookstores but it's not as enjoyable with 3 kids who only want to look in the children's section and that other problem of being broke and not being able to buy anything anyway.

Tess had her best friend over today, she spent the night last night. She is really a sweet litttle girl and they've been having a lot of fun together. Lydia is having her best bud over tonight for a sleep over, they will inevitably end up in her room with the door closed all night. You know how those tweens need their privacy.

We had a bunch of friends and their families over for a fondue party last Saturday, there were 10 kids and 8 adults and 4 fondue pots. We had 2 cheeses, one hot oil and one chocolate. yes, it was delicious and fun. The thing that got to me was the older kids, 3 girls and 1 boy, all 11 or 12 years old and I've known all of them since they were babies. One of them being my own 12 year old daughter, of course. It's such a bittersweet time, they are still kids that like to play and goof around but at one point they were all in Lydia's room just talking for over an hour. Just talking.....oh, to be a fly on the wall in that room.

Mikayla is entering tweenhood and it is so scary. Why do they grow up so fast? It seemed yesterday that she was playing with Barbies and now she's talking with friends in her bedroom with the door closed...

You're right... what I wouldn't give to be a fly on the wall.

Isn't it hard? They are all CEREBRAL now and stuff. Wow. It's deep.

I wish I could have made that awesome Fondue thing. Sniff.

Awww they grow so fast, huh? I know my day will be here soon. Mason is hardly ever home now (he's at friends' houses) and it breaks my heart. I miss him all the time :(

Fondue???? Mmmmmmmm!!!!
