ICE WORLD

Exactly two weeks after our first storm, the day after my birthday, we got a “big” storm for this area. When people first told me how snow incapacitates the area, and that people would literally abandon their cars, I really thought they were messin’ with me. I mean, really.

But nope, snow and this place are a bad mix. I’m kind of converted from, “Whatever, it’s a couple of inches, I can drive in snow,” to “I see one flake and I am OUT of here, suckas!” It took me 3 hrs and 15 minutes to get ~15 miles that day. I watched cars just…. slide into other cars. Me no likey.

But, from the warmth of my home, while still worrying about power loss or something like that making things less fun, we enjoyed the snow days. Ice coated the world on day 2. It was gorgeous, even if, as I said, I was nervous about the power lines—or our “stuff” being taken down by a falling limb as the very thickest branches in the oldest oaks in our backyard started to point downwards from the massive weight.

SNOW PLAY

Carter really made good use of our modest snowfall last week, and made sure to go out at least a couple of times everyday. I was at work most of the days, but stayed home with the kids Thursday. Later in the afternoon Paul was able to play with Carter in that rough way that moms usually just don’t do.

SNOW DAY

The kids had nearly all of last week off due to a winter storm—it really is true that winter weather stops some places completely. Cole has a headcold bothering him and sapping his energy, so he only played a bit. Bunny is entering her “bedroom cocoon” years, so she really wasn’t into playing outside with her doofy family (I like to do an impression of Pearl, Mr. Krabs’ daughter on Spongebob for Paul: “Daddy, you’re EMbarrasing me!”). Carter, however, was ALL ABOUT THE SNOW.

ANOTHER TOOTH: GONE!

Came home to a freshly lost tooth today – and a thrilled little boy.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY COLE!

Our family “Caboose” turned 6! Everyone in our home has more than one hand worth of fingers now.

(Cole wanted to garnish the cake with two berries, no more, no less.)

Cole’s grown *so* much in the past year, in all ways. We can’t wait to see what next year holds for him – we love him so, our not so little guy.

MIDDLE SCHOOL ART DISPLAY

Bunny took art as one of her electives this semester, and they recently had a little exhibition set up all around the school.
Room allows only one item per child, and Bunny chose a clay mask she formed and glazed.

I keep this on my desk to gather paperclips, etc.
Bunny and I went just the two of us, and we had fun looking all around at the other classes and grades' displays. This one made both of us laugh.
