Indentured Daughters

Jared pointed out this morning that the girls will owe us lots of money for raising them, so we decided to celebrate Thanksgiving by putting them to work immediately.  We must get our money's worth.
Charlotte cleaned some windows that she had previously colored on with crayon. 
She actually really liked doing it.  She got mad when I told her she was done.  
Katie made the rolls for Thanksgiving dinner all by herself.
This is where she said "Ta Da!"  I'm not kidding- she said that just as I took the picture.
So there you go.  Indentured daughters working off their debt.  Next week I plan to get them started on cleaning gutters and then scraping our popcorn ceilings.

Time Out

And if that's not enough for you, then you can watch this video in which they express their opinions of each other, time out, me, and the entire world (If you can't hear it very well, they are taking turns doing raspberries).

Yep, that's about right

So....last night was Halloween.  Did you know?  I took this fantastic video of Charlotte running around in circles and Katie turning her back to me and both of them pretty much ignoring me.  They're off to watch tv and nothing can deter them. Yep, that's about right.

In other news, they did briefly interrupt their tv-watching experience to say hi to Mummu and Granny.

Happy Halloween everyone!
