Here's what's happening at our house:

Helen colors voraciously. She gets crayons out 2 or 3 times a day. Thank goodness for washable Crayola crayons!

Owen puts on concerts and leads worship. His microphone is the cat-shaped toilet paper holder made by Jason's grandpa. We borrowed that idea from a cousin.

Jack chills out. He is beginning to grab everything. He grabs my shirt when I'm changing his diaper. He grabs toys to chew on them. He grabbed the cat, and I put a stop to that.
We got our hands on a giant length of packing paper. It stretched all the way across the basement floor. It was a great place to run.

Owen plays Blue's Clues. Here's his handy-dandy notebook and his handy-dandy crayon. He even hops into his "thinkin' chair" when he has all of his clues.

Helen feeds her baby most nutritious lunches.
The cat complies. They have since stuffed her into a small cabinet and said she was going night-night. Daddy put a stop to that.

Helen chats to Grandma on an old cell phone they use as a toy.And these are a bunch of baby hats I made out of old t-shirts and an old jumper of Helen's. They were a lot of fun. They're on their way here.

Joyce, what a cute picture into your days spent at home. Your kiddos sure are creative! Just like their mama. Love the caps. I checked out that web site...what a great mission/organization.

Looks like they're having fun, fun, fun! You have a very brave cat. :)

I had to chuckle at the toilet paper holder turned microphone. My sister and I did a similar thing with the vacuum attachment.

Poor kitty :). . although I think its pretty funny. If you need a few more cats to provide entertainment, just let me know and I'll be happy to oblige. Maybe your cat needs some company while ya'll are gone. ..maybe I'll take a few out when we go for Thanksgiving today :). Jan
