We needed some plants potted and the kids were more than willing to do the work for us. I love having helpers!

 They are both laying in their doorways so they could sleep closer together. Awww
3 blankets and 2 pillows on top of her head and her legs were shivering.
(Her face was not covered.)

That's exactly how you are supposed to use a bed! 
It only took 5 years to figure it out.

Mentos and Diet Coke

I needed some 2 liter bottles for some upcoming science and art projects. Only we don't drink anything that comes in a 2 liter bottle. So we went to the store to buy the cheapest drink we could just to get the bottle - when the cheapest happened to be diet coke we just had to turn it into another project. If you have never dropped a roll of mentos into a diet coke bottle, you really should. Here the kids only got a few mentos into the bottle - they were afraid of getting covered in diet coke - and there was still a good reaction.

Sweet Son's turn

Sweet Daughter's turn

See those bottles in the background that are still full? Wonderful Husband and I did those and while we got bigger reactions, my favorite videos are still those with the kids. :)
