Family outings and adulting.

It's honestly pretty rare that all six of us leave the house together, let alone to do something. It's just a lot of work and I'm not sharp enough to watch the kids like I used to. I am like a fifth kid for Matt so you can imagine he's not totally excited to go out, either. But for New Years Eve this year we went to our local Children's Museum and spent an hour playing. 
The big kids didn't really do much because they are too old to enjoy this place, but they were pretty good sports about it.  
 Penelope's favorite was a toss between a big slide and this fan that would blow items up the chute and they'd fly off. She was over here for a long time. 
 Jackson would diligently retrieve the items so she could keep doing it. 
 Lucy was all about the slide. This poor child hardly leaves the house, and I feel like a terrible parent saying that but it's true, so everything is new and amazing for her still. We've only taken her to the park a handful of times because I'm just not up for it, so Lucy hasn't had a lot of slide experience. She loved it, though!
 It took her a bit but after some time she realized it's easier for her to go backwards on her tummy. 

In other news, Matt and I are busy being adults.
Not only did he hang up the painting I did, but we bought real lamps. These aren't your Target or Walmart lamps, they are for real lamps that cost $50 a piece and so heavy that I could kill someone should I have to. Don't break into my house, I will bash your head in with my fancy lamp. Probably wouldn't even dent it. That's how great they are. 

It's ridiculous that our life has come down to lamps being the most exciting part of the month.

Ooh fancy lamps! I'm glad the little ones enjoyed the Children's Museum and that your older ones were good sports about going/helping out. :)
