mardi gras


happy fat tuesday to everyone. my kids had way too much fun today. lots of play, no naps and eventual meltdowns for everyone... still was a good time and everyone went to bed early and passed out immediately. it will be good for all of us to have a mellow ash wednesday tomorrow...


jack and lucy have both decided to give up candy for lent, which, although they don't really eat candy, is a sweet thought in terms of trying to give something up. i guess it will make easter that much more exciting when it feels like they have been going without something... pete was also explaining to them trying to work on something as opposed to just giving something up. jack thought about this and decided he is also going to work on getting up in a timely fashion without complaining when it is time to get up for school. i thought this was really sweet since he thought of it all on his own and since he genuinely really does have a hard time getting up in the morning. finn is still thinking about what he is going to give up...
