The tree service came today to take care of some things- we had three rotten maple trees chopped down and some fir and cedars thinned out. The kids loved watching the chipper! He is watching the truck out the window, I caught him in his room.
Ernie and Cocoa ran out to play with the wood when we got home this afternoon.
Cocoa set up a drum kit on the coffee table. Right after this we moved the lot to the floor, to protect the nativities. Right after that, he broke a chopstick hitting the drums. Wow.
The kids did great while J and I were gone on our trip, much better than I expected. Monday was rough- the kids were nuts and I wore ear plugs all morning. I joked on Facebook that I want an earmuff-style head set for Christmas, but I wasn't kidding. All three kids were practicing piano at the same time.
