The fog was getting to us...

so we decided to have some crazy indoor fun while big sister was off at school.  It's icy cold outside and the dense fog is kinda dreary. But inside our house, well that's another story.

I am allergic to wheat and so play dough is out of the question.  Here we have Moon Sand.  You can't roll it but you can mold it.  My son received the dino kit for Christmas. And I make my children keep it on cookie sheets to contain the mess. A few days ago he and his sister brought all the sand molds upstairs.  (It's cold and they don't like to play in the basement during the winter so the toys slowly find their way out of the toy closet and upstairs.)  Anyway, we have a Mater and Sebastian mold along with 4 turtles, 3 dinos & bones, and a rock mound mold.  

And then because I already had the camera out, he asked for photos of him tossing his baseball. It's one of those foam types for indoor use.

And then there is this bike that Grandma and Great Grandma got him for Christmas. He told me all about it and turned the handle bars and said something about how cool it looks from the side.

And then I suggested that he jump on his bed. I got a big, "WHAT?!" from him.  We read 'No More Monkey's Jumping on the Bed' often around here.  I told him that it would be okay for photos but only when mommy was there with a camera ready.  Sometimes you just have to mix things up. He had a blast.  I have a whole series of him that I'm dying to make into a scrapbook page - which I might get to do with my sister here for the weekend.  This one is my favorite. Up, Up, and Away!

And then he needed a little break because jumping on a bed is hard work apparently.

How can I not feel happy inside when my little boy smiles at me after a morning like this.
