A nice (somewhat) quiet night at home. The kids received a fun postcard in the mail today from their cousins. And so an impromptu Skype session was in order.


Of course two 3 year olds, a 5 year old, and a 6 year old with a web camera is never a “quiet conversation”. Lively would even be (a significant) understatement. (It’s nice to know the Girl’s crazy hair runs in the family…)

After Skype and dinner, Josh headed upstairs to watch the college football national championship game rout. The kids and I settled in on the couch for another episode of Star Wars.


We’re on Episode II: Attack of the Clones. Yes, I’m horrible and letting my 3 year old watch it. It’s easier than trying to find time when she’s not around and she doesn’t exactly sit still and watch anyway. This time she kept demanding to know when Princess Leia was going to show up. Thank goodness for Jar Jar Binks (bet you’ve never heard THAT before) – he’s very fascinating to a 3 year old. Probably because they talk the same.
