It has been such a nice day.

Andy went shopping on his way home from work last night and I had him pick up a whole chicken so I could make soup today. Soup always makes me feel better. I wanted dumplings, also. After noting that the Bisquick I had in my fridge expired in 2005, I had him pick up a new box of that as well.

We had a big icy snow last night - so while Andy went out and shoveled this morning I fed the girls breakfast and they ate so nicely it was amazing. Mealtimes give me agida (looked up the spelling of that one - there are a million ways) and for some reason they just ate like angels. After that we all went to sit on the potties (well, not me!) and Maddie did her thing. And she got a sticker. Katie couldn't do her thing. But she wanted a sticker and sat on that potty for half an hour. Didn't happen though so I talked her into trying again later. No sticker. :(

After that I put the chicken in a big pot of water with veggies and parsley, sage, rosemary, and thyme. Just like the song. Easy to remember. It cooked for about 2 hours - I broke the chicken apart - added more veggies - and then Andy had a big bowl right before he went to work. He is not a dumpling fan, so I'll make those later for my dinner.

The girls and I played and read and had another lovely meal (is it a full moon?) and then after Sesame Street it was naptime. I did all the dishes and - because they are Andy's favorite thing in the world - I made yellow cupcakes. (He bought the mix last night so I figured that was a big fat hint!)

So now it is almost 3:30 in the afternoon and I hear the girls stirring. Gotta go. Hope you all are having a nice day, too.

you had good day, you deserve it. I was a bad mommy when we were potty training. M&M's lined the bathroom counter, one for one two for two!! It worked and rather quickly I might add. A friend of mine drained her toilet, glued a frog to the bottom of the toilet and told her sons she new they would never be able to hit the frog!! That was a quick train too.
