A pirates life for me! It is freezing today! I know we don't really know what freezing is in New Mexico but it is currently -1 degrees with the wind chill and we are feeling it even inside!! Alexander got all bundled up this morning with two long sleeved shirts, a coat, his socks and snow boots, jean,s his Canadian hat and his gloves all by himself and went outside in the backyard. I didn't realize it was in the negatives so I shewed him back in and they decided to be pirates instead of Antarctica explorers. They used the stairs as their ship because there is a middle landing perfect for their loot. I thought it was great because they were getting along and using their imaginations. Although every time I would board their ship (use the stairs) they started shooting me with imaginary rifles. The funny thing is they told me I was the good guy and they were the bad guys but I was the one that always had to die.
Alexander was using the tennis racket as a weapon while Eva was looking for more good guys to shoot
They even had patches that I found, and I put their pirate banner up for effect.
Oh and Alexander informed me that pirates LOVE cheese sandwiches for lunch (his request every day)
We are winding down with How to Train your dragon on the projector and popcorn and skittles while I try to get through the giant masses of laundry and feel warm and cosy on this frosty day.
P.S Daniel put that Rodeo song on the play list and I didn't realize it was there until after the fact. BLARG
