It has been really raining and storming here these past few days! We are not used to this kind of weather, so it was rather exciting and fun!
Time to put on rainboots!
Only in southern CA will you find a two-year old having fun in rainboots and a bathingsuit!
This morning, we woke up and it was still raining. So Avery took Aria out to the backyard for a little umbrella fun….
Finally, at around 4:00pm the clouds began to clear a little bit. And the rain just stopped. And this is what we saw from our backyard….
Does this mean the fun is over? Darn! I want more storms! We were having fun with all the rain. Of course, our sandbox didn’t fair so well…
Yuck. What a soggy mess!
Soggy mess=NOT FUN
((How many times am I going to say the word “fun” in this post?))
On to other things…
Tonight Rich is coming home from work and then will be on a “4-day” which is firemans’ lingo for being off 4 days in a row. It’s always nice when that happens over a holiday, especially Christmas. This means he will be home both Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. How fun! We are looking forward to that. Normally, he is either off Christmas Eve OR Christmas Day.
Now I’m off to take my 15 year old to meet friends at the bowling alley, and then on to pick up my 17 year old from her girl scout activity, and finally to take my 11 year old to his friend’s house for a sleepover. And then my night is done! Yes!! I will probably spend my time tonight cleaning up and organizing my office. This is where all the wrapping has been going on and it’s quite a mess! Boxes are everywhere. Wrapped gifts are all over. And the floor is very dirty! Ugh. I hate when it looks like it does right now.
Remember when it used to look like this?
Well, now it looks like this:
And all the empty boxes are seriously piling up!
I’m so not in the mood to clean this mess! It’s just not part of the Christmas spirit. It actually puts a damper on the Christmas spirit. I guess I shouldn’t have let it get to this point in the first place. ::::sigh::::
