Snow What?

Is everyone sick of hearing us talk about the Snow? Here are some more pictures after the last 8" we got. We went sledding in the street today. Audrey is all set with her new snow pants. Hi-Winter Fashion all the way :)

The road to our street... Can you believe how the Snow sticks to the trees? I know, Snow What...

Living in Snow

School was closed yet again. Job Site was closed down too. That means mom has restless children and husband to keep busy. We woke up to this on Thursday morning... and the snow never stopped all day.
Meet Sally our snowman. She is constantly smiling and from her view I can see why. She looks straight into our kitchen window getting a front row seat at all of our family drama. Who is going to sit by Mom at dinner? How come winter doesn't have High-Fashion clothes? Why did she get to eat the last candy? Now if only Dear Sally could talk. She could tell me who really pinched who and if we are as nutty as the family to our left. (Actually, I am glad she can't - I wouldn't want to know.)

Today is Friday. It is bright and sunny and only 26 degrees. But we decided to brave the weather and take the girls "sledding". We started getting dressed at 9:45. Convincing the girls it was COLD and they needed pants under their pants. After 4 rounds of different combinations and 1 hour and 20 minutes later we were in the car. We returned home 45 minutes later with possibly one emotionally scarred child. Here is Carissa - pleasant the whole way. What a trooper!
Audrey not pictured. Although I do actually have a picture I thought I would be nice and not post. So the snow, although beautiful, takes some getting used to. It is a wonderful treat on the first "snow day" but as the times goes by the novelty of Hot Chocolate may lose it's power.
Good News - Supposedly we are getting the "sequel" to the snow storm this Saturday. Perhaps Sally will get a friend?
All our love ~

Look how it sparkles!!

We woke up yesterday to a blanket of white. It was so amazing to watch the girls reaction. They have seen snow but never in there own backyard, covering their possessions, and SPARKLING!!

No AM Kindergarten today - here is a tip ** A faster way to find this information out, rather than driving to the school and seeing it bare, is to call the school - HA! I wonder if they have a camera on all the moms in pajamas with the confused look on their faces...
Looks like the girls and I will be Christmas crafting today - not such a bad deal :)

Where is December?

Wow - tell me it isn't the 11th of December? There are no christmas cards with the girls on it. There are no baked cookies. There are no lists. I am not checking anything twice and if I don't hurry up under the tree will be bare!!

To get me in the spirit here is a picture of our tree - it really did turn out pretty. And for sure, starting right now - we are all Christmas, all the time!! Starting with the Christmas music for your listening pleasure ;)

Weekend Update

It seems like the faster the leaves fall the quicker time goes by...

We had such a nice Thanksgiving ~ Our table was decorated compliments of Audrey.

I finished this fall inspired quilt, just in time to pack it away for the red and greens.
It is so easy to get into the Christmas Season with the cool weather. We actually did decorate all weekend and spent Saturday downtown taking in all the Holiday events. The girls were such troopers and I am so sorry but I forgot the camera :(

I will be sure to post pictures of our Holiday decorations soon. All our love~
