YEA Dad did good.....He got us Guitar Hero for our playstation.......(just what we need around here, the ability to be a rock band!)The kids also got new sleeping bags, which they stayed in all evening and watched TV........

In the past year or so Jordan has learned to play chess. We go to the library almost every saturday. They have an older gentleman who gives of his time to teach the children chess for free. Jordan loves it. The teacher said that he is really good at it. He really stops and thinks about every move very carefully, soon he will be beating him. He even played this fall after school at the school for the deaf. Tom came home tonight after being out in the snow all day, to a nice fire in the wood burning stove, and his favorite dinner, chili. Then it was time to sit down and play Jordan in chess.........
as you can see Jordan took him to task! I can't even recall the number of times I heard "check"!

Let it snow

Yippee....the first "play" snowfall of the year!

knowing that I have been a little stressed out these past few days, my wonderful husband showed up afterwork yesterday with this in his arms....... It's so pretty!Sorry ladies but I think that I have the best husband in the world!
