Here Comes the Sun. . .

After a dark and gray weekend, here comes the sun. . . I am so grateful that the sun rises and sets everyday and WOW what a difference it makes!!!

(maybe it will melt the rest of my snow, so I won't have to shovel) :)

Phooey on Puxatawney Phil!!!

Last week Phil, the groundhog, came out of his hole and predicted 6 more weeks of winter. Well, I think we just got 6 weeks worth just in the last 2 days. It has been snowing non-stop since early Sunday morning. The kids had a snow day yesterday, but I didn't (College stinks). Today we both have snow days. YEAH!! Last night Fred didn't get home from work until after 10:30 pm and we had to shovel over a foot of snow just so he could get the van up the driveway.

I should get the Mother of the Year award for having my children out in the snow at 11:00 pm.

Sydney making a snow body! No angels around here, there is nothing sweet and angelic about this weather.

We measured just over two feet of snow that fell on our table. (Note this table was clear last week)

The one time Fred forgot to cover his bbq. We won't be able to find his cover until it melts.

Overall, I should be grateful for the moisture because this area has been under a severe drought for the last decade, but does it have to come all at once.

Happy Birthday Baby!!!

This morning Sean woke up and said, "Today I'm a big kid!" He sure is, today Sean turned 4. He has been saying all week that he is 4 and not 3 anymore, but today it's official. I guess my reasons list won't be very long so here goes:

The 4 things I love about Sean:

1. He makes me SMILE :)

2. He loves me unconditionally. (He can be in trouble and then come up and hug my leg and say I love you, MOM!) AHHH!

3. He is such a boy. (Now this might not be a big thing, but living in a house full of girls he definitely has the boy thing figured out)

4. He truly loves his sister's. (He may be the little brother, but I can see that he will stick up for his sister's)


PS. This is how Sean usually dresses, in his underwear!(again another boy thing)
