Encore, encore!

I tried to explain the girl's singing to a coworker the other day.
"They have no modulation to their voice, " I said.
She gave me a look and wondered out loud if they were trying to "out do" each other.
No... no... they just don't have modulation to their little voices.
I don't want you to get me wrong. I did not want her to get me wrong either...
Their singing is music to my ears.

*Note the cat (Lt. Kije) running away... probably not music to his ears...

What is minimum wage these days?

I really love cooking with the girls. Weekend mornings are our special time together.
The girls pull up chairs to the island and help measure and mix ingredients. We like to make breakfast cookies, banana bread and muffins. (*Good to note here that Ana calls English muffins "Angry muffins". There is always excitement as I explain that we're going to make blueberry muffins and not Angry Muffins...)
Ana was helping me cook one morning. She pulled up her chair to the island in the kitchen. She waited patiently for me to get out the ingredients. To keep her attention, I told her that I was going to give her a job to do.
She leaned forward and very seriously said, "... I need a job."

That's Funny...

This is an old video from January that I've been meaning to post for awhile.
All I did... was step away from the children to take the carrots off the stove and put them on the plates. In that very short amount of time... my children painted each other...
(*Keira has a cold, so her voice is a little funny)
