It was all fun and games…

Snow Angels

Having a Blast


You might be thinking – what was I thinking?  I couldn’t help myself though.  Nate was watching a cartoon and the little boys in it had on their hats and mittens and were having a blast playing in the snow. He looked at me and asked, “Snow?  Nate play?  Hat?”

What was I supposed to do?!  He was so sweet and I could tell how much he wanted to bundle up and dive in to the white stuff.  It would have never happened if it wasn’t for my sister and brother-in-law.  Whenever Brian mails us something, he loads it with stuff like the packaging peanuts.  I usually cringe when I see the stuff because it can make such a mess – it’s so funny what you’ll do for your children.

For the record though, about the mess, it took about 15 different runs of the Dyson to collect all the pieces – and there’s still some of it lingering around on the carpet and in my hair!


It was totally worth it

    I do stuff like that too, and then I think, "Geez, I'm so glad no one was here to see that." or, "Hmm, will this lead to some behavior I'll later regret?" I think you have to just go with it! I love that you shared your Valles snowstorm with us. They do have an awesome mom!

    OK I laughed and thought what a great Mom and then I thought I hope one day Nia and Nate will see real snow up north,also memories of the blizzard when you and Julie jump off of the patio into the snow and the snowmen that were built just for you. Love you Momma
