Allee reading

Allee was the first to start reading. It is so precious to witness such proud moments.
Now they all are all beginning to read and take turns reading our bedtime stories.

One of their favorite things to do in the winter is skating on our fish pond.



Lex watches some video about unicorns and llamas, so for Christmas he received rubber mask to play. But the littles seem to enjoy them just as much. This is Allee:

The littles love to go to the park and feed the ducks:

the ODD space

There's this empty space between my bathroom and bedroom that I've never really known what to do with. I suppose it was designed to be a sitting room. It has a big picture window with a nice view of the woods beyond our backyard. I could imagine me cuddled up on a big plush chair with a nice cup of Zen tea leisurely reading my books... but that's all I could do is IMAGINE it. LOL Because that space has been many things since I've lived here, but its never been a space for leisurely anything. It has always been adapted for the needs for the quads. From a space for bathing, diaper changing station, extra sleep area for the crying one, play area with vanities and dress up clothes, to most recently, its where they get ready for school in the mornings. However, back in the day, BQ (before quads), it was a space I used to work out in. So that is what I decided to do with it again. Whenever I am working out the littles want to be under my feet, so I found them their own work-out station... and they love it!
Arabella really gets into it. She will even lead circuit training with the others. Setting up different stations for them to do and calling out "switch". It's too cute!

Of course the boys love the punching bag. And what better way to get out some aggression. Mommy uses it a lot!



And I added a power stand, however, the littles use it more for gymnastics. They scare the crap out of me, those girls can run and jump up, twist and twirl, flip over and land. Wow! Maybe I should put them in a class huh?
Anyway, now our ODD space is a place for the entire family to come.

The weather has been very brutal this week, the kiddos missed the entire week of school. They certainly didn't seem to mind. They enjoy playing in the snow.
