I'm still working out this cough and as long as I don't talk or move, it isn't too bad. But my whole body aches because my muscles are so weak from lack of exercise. It's quite depressing for me since I started working out back in high school so I would have strong leg muscles for horsemanship. And I was pretty good about working out until I went to work part time before I had Keturah. There's been zero time since. And when I do try, it's for like a week and that's it. So, my pain level is high and requiring extra medication for it. Boo.
Meanwhile, the middles got to go to the Children's Museum, where Grandpa said it was very, very packed. Kind of odd for mid week unless some large school groups were there. Then they headed downtown for lunch and to see Monument Circle where they have strung Christmas lights to make the Monument, which is a very large spire, look like a gigantic Christmas tree. Oh, this was all after the kids went to the dentist early this morning to get their cavities filled. We hadn't told them that they were going straight to Grandpa's house, so they were thoroughly confused. Justin had gotten up extra early (like 5:45am!) to build his new Lego set and was a little disappointed he couldn't play with it much today.
|Keturah had gone 6 hrs between meals and ended up eating a huge triple patty steakburger, fries, and a small milkshake for a late lunch at her favorite restaurant!|
|It was very cold today, under 25 degrees F, and they didn't get to see the Monument lit up, but here it is during the daytime!|

|Finally! I really need to have us get down there and take a picture with this sign as well, but at least some of us have! It's become an icon of downtown.|
|Aww, Bumblebee is all ready for Christmas! I can't wait to go see all the Children's Museum Winter Wonderland displays and see Santa in the next couple of weeks! Lots of memories over the years of the Museum in December.|
|IT SNOWED! Well, lookie there! I had no idea but there was "dandruff" coming down all day. I was too busy with Abishai and working on my computer to notice. I let Abishai go out on the porch in his jammies and he couldn't contain his excitement! That's right, My Canadian, here's the white stuff! He also just likes getting out of the house and he hasn't been out in a couple of days, poor thing. I plan to take him Christmas shopping with the other kids tomorrow.|
|SNOW! This was the view into our parking lot from the main front doors.|
|Like I said, ALL the bedding had to join them for the movie.|
