MLK jr

Happy Birthday MLK Jr.! I really don't remember this day being a holiday for us up in Canada when I lived there. I don't remember having the day off from school or work. I remember studying him and his speech every year while in school.
I thought about trying to teach Jakob about him this year, but I don't think he would get it. I talked to him about MLK a little and he was interested for about 20 seconds. Not quite the attention span yet.
But tomorrow will be a big day in our house. We look forward to watching the inauguration. I am going to watch it with the kids. I am sure they will just be playing around and not getting any of it, but there will be an excitement in the air and red, white and blue treats to be had. I have invited some of the other mamas over but so far no takers - not too many democrats here I guess.

Take Care,
Love Big, Bake Often

I'd come to your party! I think I'm going to miss the swearing in because I'll be picking them up, but I'm going to watch it before and after that, taping what I miss. O, Happy Day!
