The boys are out of school for Christmas so they spent the last two days with us. That means we try to find things to keep them a bit busy and not bored and missing their friends too much. Actually, they are getting better and keeping themselves busy with wrestling, boxing, throwing the ball, and more. But still, I like to find fun stuff to do. Last week I read an article about an exhibit at one of the banks here, Happy State Bank, of a model train and miniature houses. (Actually, I thought it was more than one train and Zane was quite disappointed when it was one!) So we decided to go see the “trains”.
The boys just loved the Disney display. Maybe because we were just in Disneyworld this summer. Even New York City.We had to discuss the Statue of Liberty! At this one Zachary commented on how it looked like when we go skiing and all the hours on the hills. Pretty cool huh? Makes me want a village. I have a couple of buildings – that’s a start! But where do you store all this stuff!? Never mind.
That evening we cooked. The boys love to help cook. Stir fry. Zachary cut up all the zucchini – my kids never ate zucchini like these boys do. They love it.
Actually, he is cutting green onion tops here. And Zane did the stir flying. We even had a volcano. You can kind of see the flames. Ours did not work like Kabuki but we tried. And then we did the traditional Christmas cookies. Man, did we make messes. I think I was either cooking or cleaning the whole time they were here.
Whew! Done. Oh, there were lots more things we did. Wrestle, eat, box, play golf (indoors of course), play ball (yes, indoors), eat, wrestle, box, eat (this meant cook, clean, cook, clean, cook, clean, etc!).
Resting now for tonight and tomorrow. Then I can crash. Oh, wait, I will have to post Christmas. Never ending….
