A day of total bliss

I have no pictures of my day yesterday.

For once, it didn't seem important to photograph anything. But for sure, the day is etched in my memories and that of my children's, hopefully, forever. Even without pictures.

Yesterday was supposed to be a vacation day. But because of all the snow in December it ended up being a make up snow day for school.

That's fine. For everybody else.

It was still a vacation day at our house.

We started the day by sleeping in until 9. Rolling out of bed just to relocate on the couch watching Pokemon, snuggled up with blankets.

Around 10, breakfast.

We worked for a little bit. We all cleaned everyone's rooms. Taking turns all helping eachother, it only took half an hour to clean 3 bedrooms.

Lunch consisted of pizza, popcorn and soda. And the best part? We all sat down and ate it together.

We then proceeded to the most challenging part of the day-deciding what movies to watch. When 6 people all have different opinions about what constitutes a movie worth watching, it can get quite loud.

Our movie list ended up being:
the live action Peter Pan
Spirit-Stallion of the Cimmaron
the video of Julia's play
Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban

We also played a board game that Julia made up. Such creative children I have.
Intermingled with all of this was candy eating, snickerdoodle making and soda guzzling. Not much burping though. Wrestling with Charlie, slobbering Nora with kisses, Henry falling asleep on the couch, kids taking turns sitting on my lap and lots and lots of giggling(a lot of that by me) and smiling, a ton of hugging and many happy sighs.

At the end of the day dad brought them home chicken nuggets (which is quite a treat now that we NEVER go out to eat, and I mean never.)
And I cut everyone's hair in the kitchen.

I was literally in Heaven to have all 6 of my kids to myself yesterday. Of course everyone wanted to repeat today. But I have to be the responsible parent SOMETIMES.

So they're at school. School stinks. A lot. Except for the part where they learn. That parts ok. But that's all. Nothing else. Except for recess. They like recess. Oh and their friends, and pizza day. But that's really all.
