Good morning, says Miss Felicity. Except not really. Because she's been following me around weeping for the past ten minutes--she clearly wasn't ready to wake up, but since I got up to wake up her older sister for cheer choreography camp, she decided to wake up, too. I finally pacify her with a snack until I can get her something more substantial to eat.

Emmie is up and getting ready! She has a very long day today (8-4) with a choreographer their cheer coach flew in to help them get ready for competition season.

DSC_0457
This guy is up, too? What happened to sleeping in?

DSC_0459
I go to take the last remnants of Christmas down, and Arthur says no. So they stay.

DSC_0460
At least someone's getting some sleep. (Not pictured: six year old is still dead to the world as well)

DSC_0462

DSC_0463
More substantial food for both Emmie and Fliss.

DSC_0466
Halfassed getting ready, I'm running out of time.

DSC_0467
Do Emmie's hair really quick.

DSC_0470
Throw together an iced coffee.

DSC_0471
And throw in some laundry; my goal is to get all of the waiting laundry cycled through today.

DSC_0472
Baby is dressed and washed up, and apparently...coloring.

DSC_0480
Cordie's up! Last one sleeping is Leylie. (Dad is up, but unpictured)

DSC_0483
No time to eat, grab and go.

DSC_0484
And we're off. Holy nasty weather, batman.

DSC_0487
Bye, Emme! Have fun!

DSC_0490
It is absolutely dumping when we get to Aldi, so we wait in the car for a bit.

DSC_0491
Lightening up a little, so we make a run for it.

DSC_0495
Groceries aquired.

DSC_0498
She is amused.

DSC_0501
I get to see this cute little Leylie face for all of five minutes, while we unpack groceries, and then she and Cordie take off to play outside.

DSC_0503
Replenish the lunch box snacks.

DSC_0507
Cycle the laundry.

20170107_112727
Feed these two a snack to tide them over until lunch is ready.

20170107_110732
Lunch prep ahoy.

20170107_112116
Aaand we eat.

DSC_0510
Power is flickering from the storm, so I light candles as a just in case.

DSC_0514
I'm finally brave and set up this Star Wars toy Arthur got for Christmas from his aunt. It takes forever to set up, and falls apart after every turn. I'm not sure if I should laugh or cry.

DSC_0518

DSC_0552
He really likes it, though, so having to put it back together every thirty seconds is worth it.

DSC_0573
Update the calendar.

DSC_0574
And put away clean dishes.

DSC_0577
More laundry.

Screenshot_20170107-144337
I get this Remind just as I'm getting ready to walk out the door...

DSC_0584
So I start some more laundry.

DSC_0581
After a lot of folding and putting away (not pictured), I grab a snack to go, and Arthur, Felicity and I run over to Publix to grab a few things Aldi didn't have.

DSC_0588

DSC_0590
These little cookie faces (free cookie every time we go in there!) are super happy. And freezing. Because it's 40 and dropping and they're very much not used to that.

DSC_0596
Back at the middle school, we wait for cheer camp to end.

DSC_0598
There's Emmie! Eating leftover pizza from their lunch.

DSC_0599
She dumps off her cheer supplies (only took three months to come in!) at home and runs outside to play for an hour.

DSC_0600
I start on dinner prep with the parmesan sauce for the tilapia.

DSC_0603

DSC_0605
Sesame green beans ahoy.

DSC_0606
Way too lazy for homemade mac and cheese tonight.

DSC_0607
The kids arrive home and Leylie discovers the replenished goldfish stock.

DSC_0608

DSC_0610

DSC_0611

DSC_0613
Dinner's up!

DSC_0612
Thumbs up from this guy.

DSC_0615
Emmie practices while we're cleaning up dinner.

DSC_0617
Not pictured: baths for a quick rinse off for the little two.

DSC_0620
Epic post-high ponytail hair.

DSC_0622
"I love cleaning the litterbox," said nobody ever.

DSC_0628
Cocoa all around.

DSC_0630
Clean up Flissy's zillion cars.

DSC_0633
Family fire and a movie.

DSC_0641
Last fire remnants while everyone brushes teeth.

Goodnight silly children.
