We woke up this morning to snow. All the kids were so excited — well, maybe not Bella and Sophia. It wasn’t much and it was gone by the afternoon, but the kids had a lot of fun for a couple of hours playing in it. We don’t get much snow here so every little bit is a thrill to the kids.




Sarah doesn’t enjoy being outside for very long at all. She is ready to go back in within fifteen minutes. She doesn’t look thrilled to be outside does she? 




After a little break, Sarah came back out and enjoyed herself for another fifteen or twenty minutes.
After playing for awhile, they came in and had hot chocolate. Bella didn’t join in the outdoor fun, but she did have some marshmallows with no hot chocolate. 

One Warm Day

Last week we had a day of slightly warm weather and Bethany and Andrew were the first out the door. They couldn’t wait to get outside and play. They seemed to be the only ones that really wanted to go out — I think it was still a little cool for the others. Sarah and Caroline did eventually go out for a few minutes to ride their bikes.  I am already dreaming of warmer weather. 



Bethany is working on a fairy house — the first thing she thinks of doing as soon as she can get out to play a little. 
I still plan on doing a two year update on Bella and Sophia. I am looking for some pictures to post of them and so I had to go back through a bunch of pics. I will try to get the post done this week. 
Maybe this is an odd ending to this post, but the other night I went up to bed and after I turned out the light and as I was getting in bed I looked out my window. I do this just about every night. This is what I saw — my neighbor’s house that is over a hundred years old. I think it was build in 1905. They actually moved the house to the lot it is on across from us — totally took the house apart and moved it from another part of town. It is a beautiful old Victorian home, but the nicest thing is that my neighbors keep their Christmas candles and lights up for a long time after Christmas and I get to enjoy the beautifully lit up home for weeks and weeks after Christmas. Such a nice ending to my day. So, that evening I got out of bed and went and got my camera and took a picture through my window.
