Elly-bug, what do you see?

Look mommy...

Look at what I see!!


Daddy. In the snow!



SNOW!! And we are still suppose to get the brunt of it this afternoon!!


John is trying to get some shoveling done, before the other 10" - 12" come this afternoon.



Coming back from helping Miss Sophie, our 87 year old neighbor.


Cleaning off my truck.








I used to love ( still do) to see a home with this beautiful perfect lawn with snow that hasn't been touched and looks like a picture.

We don't have that.

We have kids.

And dogs.

And grownups who love to play.

So our backyard looks like a war zone.

But the memories they have, the memories WE have, are worth not having life picture perfect. So I will enjoy other people's perfect untouched snow, and I will love our played in, built in, thrown in, wrestled in, crazy-like-all-get-out backyard.


With it's igloo in the making.




And PS...

Chinese New Year is but 4 days away, and look who is ready!!!

LOVE the CNY outfit! So cute that she's all ready to celebrate!

I can't decide if I'm jealous of your snow or not...hmmmm, I sure love a good blizzard but...I'm awfully ready for spring. I think I'm...not jealous so, have fun without me! :)

Hi Madleine
Thanks for commenting on my blog.
We were heartbroken that Guatemala has shut it's doors to adoption, we were hoping to go back. You have a beautiful family, your little girl is precious God made her especially for you.
Love the pictures but so tired of winter and snow!
Blessings :)
