I Survived

I babysat a 4 year old for 24 hours and we both lived to tell the tale.  It's not easy work. I may not want little Osbotts any time soon, but we had a good time and I kept her somewhat entertained.

Friday night she wanted to rent a movie, so we walked up to the convenience store.  She pulled out two options for me, Barbie and Spongebob.  I vetoed those options, so she chose The Lorax.  It was better than Barbie I'm sure. 
The cat thinks she likes chocolate covered almonds...
Saturday, Ryan was up at the crack of dawn to go register our teams for the upcoming annual plunger plop.  He had to get in line and then wait until 1pm when he could actually register.  The plunger plop is kind of a big deal.  So Dew and I walked up to visit at around 9.  It was a long walk for a four year old.  It took a bit longer than it should have....

Once we got home, she helped me make cookies.  My camera was acting up, and I hate posting blurry pictures, but I thought it was hilarious that Pipsi loved her so much and wanted in on the action.

And the best part of baking cookies?  Licking the bowl of course!

In the afternoon, we went out to my Aunt and Uncle's mill and went skating.  I don't know the last time I was pond skating, but it was kind of fun.  It's nice to take advantage of nice winter weather.  This whole weekend was snowy, but not too cold.  Perfect for outdoor activities!
So that was our busy day.  Needless to say, I fell asleep on the couch before 10....but that's really not any different from most weekends.  I'm cool like that.
