My kids went sledding with some friends this afternoon. It was FREEZING out but they seemed to enjoy themselves. My parents came over to celebrate Benjamin and Cecilia's birthdays. Mom got Benjamin some sort of delightful drum that makes all kinds of noises with different music with. I wish I had the camera up and running as it most amusing to see her demonstrating how it worked. I think we need to find her one for her birthday as she seemed a little torn to be giving it away. She was calling us the last few weeks and demonstrating it over the phone to Benjamin. Hmmmmm.........I don't think she has grown up and I have a new perspecitive on what to get her from Christmas and her birthday.
