I'm always so glad when Friday arrives. I especially love Friday nights. We usually have pizza and watch a movie with the kids. Tonight I made two pizzas--one for the kids and one for the grown-ups and we watched Kicking and Screaming together. It was pretty cute. Towards the end of the movie, Will told us that his tooth was going to come out soon. I didn't even know it was loose, but it seems he'd been wiggling it during the entire movie. Sure enough, out it came while we were watching the outtakes. We counted up and it is his 9th tooth to lose. Sarah didn't like our counting method though...technically he's only lost 8 teeth, and he had one pulled by the dentist, so according to Sarah that one he had pulled doesn't really count. Siblings!!!

Abbey and I went to the library this afternoon. As we were leaving, we got some food for the ducks and walked over to the pond to feed them. There was another man there feeding them, but when his supply ran out, they immediately moved toward us. We gave them what little we had which they gobbled up, then we just watched them quack and waddle around on the frozen pond. It was fun. There were probably over 200 ducks there (and no, I'm not exaggerating!). There were some geese too and Abbey thought their honking was funny.

Also, today we made it past the freezing mark for the first time in a week. At 34 degrees, it felt almost tropical!
