Snow Day

Yesterday was another one of those days. It just felt weird. Rand was home from work. The boys stayed in their jammies all day. And all day long it snowed.....except as the day went on there was less and less snow on the ground.
It's February.
As long as I can remember February is when I start to feel a little crazy about being stuck in the house and really tired of all the cold weather. Although, I am pleased with how much less it rains here compared to Seattle. I love the rain, but like I said, by February, enough is enough. That really does get old. So we did some arts and crafts to brighten our otherwise colorless existence in the dead middle of winter.




By evening it was cold enough for all that white stuff to start sticking to the ground and by morning we had a good 4 inches of powdery snow.




Off to go sledding!


And in case you missed it on Facebook, here are a couple videos of the boys being boys. (I know, I know, Brendan should not have been going off that jump in his condition. I tried to make him go on his tummy, mostly, to avoid impact to his leg.)

I have said many times that Brendan should be allowed to only fish during his free time. This will allow his leg to properly and help in perfecting his fishing abilities. Why will no one listen to me?

Great close ups - I bundled up the kids and sent them out while I enjoyed some quiet in the house! I've never been much of a snow playing person. I really don't like extreme weather--the very cold or the very hot. I sound so fussy, don't I?
