I panicked a little when I realized it was December 9th & I hadn’t made a plan for this month’s Project 10 shots. But then it snowed overnight. And the piano people called to schedule delivery. This was a December day full of little goodies that I’m glad I was obligated to document. I actually started the day with the Flip video camera. I feel like we miss out on the live action documentation in favor of constant still camera shots. I’ll play with the video clips soon!
I was he!!-bent on getting to the gym today but the spoiled rotten youngest child begged to play in the snow before we went. She was unsure. Then she loved it. It was fun to watch her rediscover the snow since she wasn’t even two last winter.
I kind of want to eat her.
And in a rare fun, laid-back mom moment, I let the big kids go right outside to play after school. Here’s one for you. This morning when I saw the snow, we were digging out snow boots and securing hats & gloves. I checked the weather on my phone and it said it would be sunny by 8:00am so I let them go without pants; assuming the snow would be gone by recess. I looked back at it later and realized my weather app had updated and reset to ATLANTA, GEORGIA. FYI. It was sunny by 8am in Atlanta. And my kids had to be the dummies on the sidelines at recess because they didn’t have snow pants. Ellie had to fill me in on the “Big 5” (hat, gloves, coat, snow pants & boots) & wanted to make sure she’d be set for the next snowy day.
I had to get a snow gear face shot of each of them too.
Meanwhile, they delivered our piano. Our refurbished, 100 year-old piano. I hadn’t even seen the stain color but it’s exactly what I was hoping for. It sounds old and saloon-y. We love it.
That’s the piano guy testing it out. Isn’t he dressed perfectly for the role of “piano refurbisher”? Love it. Oh. We need a bench.
I sat down to play for just a minute and burned the bejeezus out of the milk for the hot chocolate.
But it was apparently still drinkable.
He likes it. And works at it. I can’t wait to see how he really does with it. He’s the kid that walks away when something looks challenging because he’s not automatically good at it. But he might just work at this. Oh. We need a bench.
