This One's for Grandpa....

I got some new toys this week. They provide endless entertainment for the kids. Natalie comes to get me from wherever I am: "Come on, Mom, it's turning!" Who needs TV? Yesterday (snow day) I had Allison, Amanda and Natalie fighting for prime spots in front of the washer as they looked for their clothes in it "Hey, there's my shirt!" "Look, my pyjamas!"


Art built that lovely platform to save my back. He also moved the laundry area out from behind the furnace to make it more accessible. We plan to put a counter up yet, so I can fold laundry down there instead of on our bed. So far I am very impressed with the machines. Who knew laundry could be fun??

I also found some neat Polar Expedition Lego for Tim on Kijiji. Natalie has discovered the joys of Lego, while watching the spin cycle...



More snow on the way tomorrow.... sigh.....

Is that two washers? Nice machines--did you buy them used? LG is supposed to be great.

Nope, washer and dryer. Not used, but a good sale. And yes, LG is supposed to be good, according to the research we did...

That is hilarious. They should add the babysitting feature to the advertising. I've seen similar pictures of kids sitting in front of the washers and dryers on other blogs. Too funny!

I have front loaders too and just love'em. Your laundry room looks about as finished as mine back in Canada is....
Don't want to make you jealous or anything, but I'm sitting here in shorts and a t-shirt and I'm sweating... and not a snowflake in sight... :0)

thanks, Erica, I'm sure all we Canucks needed to hear that.
We just appreciate the warm weather more when it comes, that's all.
(It is coming, right? Right???)
