Everyone is a comedian....

Today our entire team at work went out to a "going away" lunch for our co-op A. During lunch A was video taping us and we were all offering our 2 cents worth of advice for the future. My advice was "enjoy school while you can because once you graduate you'll just have to work for the next 40-45 years".

After we finished lunch he wanted to get a group picture. Another guy on our team, S, had brought along his digital camera. Well, we were all in the lobby of the restaurant and S was going to take the picture but A really wanted S to be in the shot too so he asked some guy that was around to take it for us. He said yeah and just as S was handing this complete stranger his camera, the guy pretended to take off with it, like he was going to run right out the door. His timing was perfect and It was HILARIOUS! The look of horror on S's face was priceless. A was wishing he would have had THAT on video. We talked and joked about it for the rest of the day. I bet that complete stranger went back to work and had a good laugh with his co-workers also.

I love Fridays!

It snowed this morning so we have SNOW! It was 19 degrees when I came to work today but now at least there is snow to make the cold worth while.


Other random items -
Last weekend M told me "I have two thumbs mommy" - quite the revelation.

We bought J new shoes, ones with hard soles. Now she clomps around the house in her little pink tennies.

We took the kids to get their Christmas pictures taken yesterday. M was a maniac while we were at the studio. She was running and jumping around. G said that she was acting like she was on crack. I think the real problem was that she hadn't taken her afternoon nap. Then J, well J doesn't like new people and she doesn't like to sit still so you can just imagine how well she was behaving.

Anyway - we got a good picture for the card and a good picture of each girl separately which was the goal. By the time we were done at the studio, 1 hour total, G and I were both exhausted! I'm just glad it's over.

Also - don't you just love J's pigtails! The girls at day care started doing fixing her hair like this. I think she's just absolutely adorable.
