It's cold

It seems that the low temperatures are here to stay. We had our first rainfall in a month last night, I saw the lightening and started up the oven. If our electricity goes out, we have no heat, so I light the oven and made cookies while I waited for the storm to pass, I made it to cracking the eggs, and the storm had moved on. Looks like we will have snow tomorrow.

Last night I decided to make a Christmas chain with my boys. My 5 year old wants to open the presents that are under our tree, I thought making the chain would be the best way to keep him at bay and help his counting. We bought 3 different colors of poster board as the local grocer did not have any construction paper. I have one of those school teacher paper cutters that a co-worker had thrown out. I snagged it since it was still in good condition. I made the first loop for my 2 year old. Oh what delight! He ran from the room with it to show his father, and stayed away to play with it. He was content. My 9 year old informed me that we had all the colors of the Mexican Flag, and got fed up making the chain after 5 loops. My 5 year old thought it was grand for about 10 hoops, then he informed me that his hands were asleep and that I should do it for him. He picked out the colors {white} and I made the loop, then he wanted to leave, but firmly reminded me that I was to use all white, nothing else. I, being the mature person that I am, stuck my tongue out at him and grabbed a green strip of paper. I was so wrong to do that. My 5 year old huffed at me and finished the chain himself in all white. Then he tattled on me to daddy.
