It turns out we have two new members. Sam and Alease have come to live with us. Sam is Morgan's boyfriend and Alease is his two year old. In order for this to happen, Morgan had to give up her room so that Alease could have a room to sleep in with her daddy. Morgan's room now consists of sleeping on our very comfy sofa! I don't know why but I find this funny in a perverse sort of way. Morgan LOVES sleeping and now I get to wake her up early EVERY morning by making noise in the kitchen! Yeeee haaaa!
Living with a two year old is interesting. It's been a LONG time since I've had one in the house. While we were gone, we somehow picked up a Mrs. Potato Head for her, and she LOVES it. She calls it her Tatoe, and wants to play with it 24/7. So what could I do but find more tatoes. These tatoes have become a nightly game. You would be amazed what 7 kids can make out of plastic potatoes and a few potato props. We've had old potatoes, mexican potatoes, fat potatoes, two faced potatoes, and the list goes on and on. We even had a potato army. (And one random carrot, but shhhhhh...we won't tell him he's not a potato if you don't!)
Another new favorite seems to be sidewalk chalk. However, it's not contained to our sidewalk. The whole cul de sac got a make over. It sort of resembles a crime scene. There are alot of outlines of bodies out there. Also a turtle. He must have been crossing the road at the wrong time.
Notice that they traced her big head just right!
Eventually, they did run out of pavement (they're hoping for a good gully washing rain), and they moved to the sidewalk. Just in case you have forgotten who all lives here, they've drawn you a map...
