The kids are obsessed w/ the Incredibles so mom and I went and got some felt and made them some masks... which didn't last too long so I'll have to make some revisions and make them again, but man they were good while they lasted!
The outfits are completed w/ blankets used as blankets. Today Jason wanted to 'be Super' outside. It was so fun to watch the kids run around saying "I'm super sissy/Jason to the rescue". We got less funny looks w/ the capes then we did when Jason wanted to be super w/ his mask the other day. :)
Today we did a fairly normal (but still a bit embarrassing) midwest winter activity ... we went to the mall playground. The kids had more fun this time than I think they've ever had there. Lily was a show stopper getting up on top of one of the structures and jumping high and far off of it then falling and rolling and laughing hysterically. I couldn't believe how far she was jumping. She was having a blast though. She out climbed and out ran her brother. Then she ran the entire length of the mall. When we got home I thought surely she would sleep... nope. Instead she and I took a nice long walk. When Jason got up he wanted to walk so we headed out again and we walked to a construction site where they were repaving a road and watched them for at least 30 mins... Lily made it through the whole day w/ all that activity w/o melting down. Is this the end of naps? UGH! She hasn't been napping very often lately, but she goes to bed pretty easily... that's a bonus I suppose.
