The Weather Outside is Frightful

OK so it isn't that bad but we are experiencing our annual ice storm. It appears that all 6 of us will be house bound until some time Wednesday. So now we have to figure out how not to drive each other crazy and activities to keep the kids from sitting in front of the TV all day. I have just moved furniture around in the living room and made a corner "fort" and gotten out a bag of large legos. At the moment they are playing grocery store with the legos which is very funny since we have a huge container of play food they could play grocery store with. I expect a little later in the morning we will have a rambunctious game of Hullabloo .

Tonight is Kid Cook Night. It is Rehm's turn to help and pick the menu. So we will be make Chef-bor-ar-dee Pizza Kits with fettuccine Alfredo and carrots and oranges. We try to do kid cook night once a week. Last week Charlotte helped make monster burgers - complete with faces.

We learned Monday that Ralph a Whale Shark at the Georgia Aquarium and Gasper a Beluga Whale also housed at the Aquarium have both died since we visited in December. We were all very sad to hear this news. We read all about both deaths at the aquarium web site. Rehm had several questions and while reading about Ralph almost cried. Poor boy.

Charlotte just came to tell me the cave is messed up and Rehm needs something out of the toy closet and the girls are ready for a nap so it is time to go.

How sad! I almost cried just reading that. I know how that must have upset Rehm.
