it's about time....



....it's about time....
....we have not had our usual amount of snowfall for the season, and oh how glad we were to see the snow come down. The boys are both home for winter break, and apparently our day has mirrored dear Abby's almost exactly. Playing in the snow, watching the Olympics by a fire, and (yes Abby) even freshly baked bread (how eerie is that?). The Olympics have become quite a hit this year, as the boys undertook a project of getting an Olympic banner ready for their room (to showcase all of the "awesome" snowboarders and ski jumpers out there...although not sure about their choice with Malaysia and England for that one....) Oh, and the boys have figured out that if you put lego figures in a headstand position on their hot wheels "luge" track, you can go much farther....a discovery that apparently big A thinks will win him the gold when he gets older.

It was a busy day, but a good one at that. Thank you snow for finally paying us a visit....you have saved the sanity of two very desperate boys and one very weary mummy desperate to put them in snowsuits.

oh, my son is so sad he can't watch! we don't have a tv... and our computer is too "old" of a mac to even watch the videos. he is staying at his grandparents this weekend and plans to spend the entire time catching up i think!

That is so funny! It makes for a good, if tiring, day.

Cary...I never thought that the Olympics would be as big as they have become! he will no doubt have a good fill of it this weekend :)
(but as long as it is either snowboard cross or ski-jumping...my 6 year old wanted to make sure he knew that)
and abby...I still chuckle when i think about it
