Day 2.355: Twenty-ten?
E5N1 gave us a fright earlier in the day. The rest of us were trying to work out how to play a slightly complicated - but in the end successful - American Girl game. He was playing with a marble run I had helped him make earlier. He had about a dozen marbles. When I went over to see why things had gone quiet for some time, I found no marbles. "Where have the marbles gone?" "In my mouth!" Sure enough we found a marble in his mouth. "Where are the others?" "In my mouth!" Clearly they were not. "Where are they!?" "In my mouth!" This time gesturing the passage down from mouth to stomach. I really hoped he was kidding, but I honestly couldn't be sure. We eventually found the marbles down between the cushions on the sofa.
We had a nice modest fall of fresh snow - the girls discovered the joy of sledding on my back and E5N1 'helped' Exile #2 shovel the snow off the driveway. I hope you enjoy these short videos of the last day of 2009.
