Yay for electricity!

Kai with Lodi and Bubi (he was allowed to have Bubi downstairs today because he's sick)

I know he's wearing the same clothes as Saturday's post...they were still clean. We bought him a fun shirt this weekend when our power was out and we wanted to get out of the house. I'll have to get a picture of him in it later. I used to be sad that there were no cute boy clothes and TONS of girl clothes....well, I love boy clothes now! All the cute plaid shirts and hoodies...so cute:)

Whenever there is a power outtage, Gary and I get a lot of talking done. No distractions. We sat in front of the fireplace last night for 3 hours and played crib and talked about our younger years. I also tried to make some shadow puppets on the ceiling, that's how fun we are. Last time the power was out for 4 days so just having it out for 24 hours was awesome!

Kai got his first cold yesterday which meant that last night he was coughing/barking and didn't sleep very well. This means I didn't sleep very well either. He seems to be in good spirits today though, so that's good. I'll have to figure out what kind of medicine to give him and whether a humidifier might be a good idea. Gary just got over his cold which was followed by a flu...so far I have managed to make it out okay:)

We have laminate floors (which I LOVE) but they need to be swept every day (which makes me think of how much dust/debris must be in carpets all the time). Today Kai said `me' and grabbed the broom and proceeded to `sweep' the house.

He even got under the recliner! He must've seen me do that a time or two! Boy, if I didn't have a kid, what would I be taking pictures of?

My dad is back from South Africa and Kenya so we had bbq lasagne last night (power outtage) with the whole family. Good times. Well, off to enjoy my hour of freedom as he naps!

    hey ldog:
    just so you know....barking is a sign for croup. Keep an eye on my nephew...he reminded me of et last night!

  2. Ya, I assumed it was croup. Got a humidifier thingy for tonight. HOpefully he gets better soon!

  3. Glad you got the humidifier...it has always worked SO well for Taeya's colds.
