Snow Day

Pardon me...(yawn)...I was up way too late last night planning all three of my kids' birthday parties for the year. The first one isn't until June. It's a SICKNESS I tell you, a real sickness. :)

Sometimes I'm pretty good at being a mom. Like when it comes to doling out hugs and kisses...and making sure my kids have a special day of their own at least once a year. And other times, I'm pretty much a giant failure. Like when it snows outside and I forget we don't own any mittens. Instead of saying, "Sorry kids, not today" I throw caution to the wind and let them go out anyway.

Sure, it starts all fine and dandy...

...but then inevitably this happens.


So we go inside and find something else that will work instead. Socks for mittens? Well, alright. We may be hoosiers, but we're hoosiers with warm hands.

Much better. :)

It was Grace's very first time out in the snow. She pretty much loved it!

We came inside and had thick, steamy cups of hot chocolate. And we now own about a million pairs of mittens. :)

On an unrelated note, I am so looking forward to this year. I remember back to when Grace was almost exactly the same age at the same time as Reagan and recall how much fun we had then. It makes me so excited for all that is in store. I don't know why, but I just get the feeling that 2013 will be FABULOUS. :) Can't wait!

Did you know that a pic of the girls is in the North County News this week being super cute during their snowy excursion? By the way....the socks for mittens is what makes you an incredible mom...I want to be half of what you are when I have kids.

Do you mean Hoosiers as in Indiana? I thought you were in Illinois. Just wondering. I was born and raised a Hoosier, but transplanted to Boston.

Haha, no you're right - we're from Illinois. Around here hoosier is kind of like another word for...hmm...redneck? No offense - we don't think people from Indiana are rednecks. ;)
