Snowtime Adventures

We have been severely disappointed by winter weather predictions so far this winter - predictions of snow that completely missed the mark. However, this weekend's winter storm was even better than expected. We had a minimum of ice, no power outage, and 7" of snow!

I love playing in the snow in the dark, which we were able to do Friday night as it started to accumulate. Brandon is not a cold-hardy little man; he lasted about 10 minutes before he headed inside and warmed himself in his underwear by the fire. Camryn was a little overwhelmed but seemed to enjoy the "suh-no," and Abi absolutely couldn't get enough of it! Even Bella seemed to enjoy the snow, although 7" is a little deep for her to navigate easily. We headed in to thaw out, decorate some warm cupcakes, drink some hot chocolate, and watch a little "Tom & Jerry" by the fire. Who could ask for a more perfect wintry Friday night?!

We headed out again this morning to play again - just glad Nick didn't require a trip to the ER to repair a damaged tongue. :o)

Not the most flattering picture of me --- but I looove Cam's face in this one!

Happy Birthday, Little Man!

"Little Man" is the nickname we've called B since he was little bitty. Today, he says to me, "Even though I'm four, Momma, I'm still your Little Man, right?" Of course! If only he knew how deeply a momma loves her babies -- even at the ripe ole age of four.
We celebrated the day with a few more gifts, a trip to Chuck E. Cheese, and a second birthday cake. Sweet day. Sweet boy.

The Last Day of 3

Tomorrow, my baby boy will be FOUR years old. I just can't believe it! Four seems to be so much older than three. It seems like just yesterday my Little Man was born . . . on Friday the 13th and a full moon!
Off to enjoy his last day of "3"!
