These are some really fun photos of Kirsten sledding with the girls yesterday. This smiley fun belies the realities on the home front though. Kirsten and the girls were at Aunt Amy's house while I was working on our kitchen all weekend. To make a long story short, we discovered a detached hose in the dishwasher about a week ago, and life quickly became very complicated and busy. The kitchen is entirely ripped out now and we're going hard to get this project finished quickly to minimize the girls' exposure to anything bad and get ourselves a functional kitchen as soon as possible. In the meantime, I built a quick temporary "space bubble" room to enclose the kitchen and keep stuff out of the girls' playroom. They don't seem to mind it, and are handling all of this amazingly well. Oh, and Annabelle is sad in most of the snow photos because her fingers are cold and she didn't know what to do about it (but she wouldn't wear her gloves...). Now back to the trenches!
