The Band

At first it was just a "girl band" with special musical guest - Dad.
But then someone crashed the stage

Sunday Snapshot~ Dear Xbox Kinect......

Thank you for achieving the impossible. Thank you for bringing these three together if for only just 3 minutes- that is, 3 minutes without hearing one single argument or a complaint about being bored.

video.

Thank you Xbox Kinect, you rock.

PS: Please come back tomorrow!

Sunday Snapshot~ FREE



Yep, even though I'm ready for winter to be done (and we've got what, possibly 3 months left?) I have to remind myself that winter around these parts is okay because it means a whole lotta fun free ways to wear my kids out family outdoor activities This outdoor rink is within walking distance...Yay!
There are actually two, side by side!
It's lit at night and has a tiny heated trailer you can sit in to warm yourself up...which means if homework is done, after dinner we can head out for a lil' while- on a school night.
Yeah, I said a school night. Gotta problem with that? Cause this guy certainly doesn't


Some prefer to stay in the car
And some prefer to try to play it cool when mom is on the ice with her camera and there are friends from school nearby.
Notice his attempt to not be part of the picture I called them together to take. We were ordered off the ice shortly after...that is, me and the camera.


I had a smile just as big, mostly because I knew the poor things would just be plain tuckered out when we got home.
Oh, and also because it is FREE
Although I'm so ready for this again

Sunday Snapshot~ "Unexpected, what you did to my heart....."

This face goes from this.... to this, when Pop Pop comes around.This girl doles out smiles to only a select few, but for Pop Pop it's a sure bet.

She's certainly smitten with him....
and his beard.
One day she tried to take a napkin and wipe it off!Sometimes he can comfort her when no one else can.

That may be because she secretly knows
that he is just as smitten with her:)
