Today is one of those days where I am walking the plank of insanity.
And Brennan started it all off at 5:15am.
Have mercy.
Time to take max to the doc.
Where I am sure they will tell me she has a double ear infection.
Oh joy.

At least we found L.

heavy, wet, & sparkly

the snow we got yesterday was amazing snow.
heavy, wet, sparkly.
perfect for snowman building and snowball throwing.
the greatest snow on earth.
HEAVEN on earth:)
the weatherman said that if you shoveled your driveway yesterday,
it would have weighed about two tons.
no joke.
he really said that.
and he even showed us how he calculated the 2 tons.
if you had a standard sized driveway.
i did not shovel my driveway.
my neighbor used his heaven sent snowblower.
bless him.
i just couldn't get over how beautiful the snow was.
and SO fun to play in.
and warm!
so WARM!
blindingly sunny.
i definitely got some new wrinkles from squinting.
we put max in her crib, pulled on our boots, and had the time of our lives.
seriously, we did.
i taught the boys about snow eating.
only white.
no yellow.
no brown.
only white.
man, i hope they were listening.
two 3 yr olds throwing snowballs at you while you're trying to take a picture.
it's not pretty.
i had a wet bumb to show for it.
and snow in my face.
they show no mercy.
i'm sure that if my neighbors were watching they would have been laughing.
i sure was.
don't worry, i got them back good!!!
i mean really,
have you ever seen anything so beautiful?
i declare not.
then wilder body slammed our snowman.
i think they named him.
but i can't remember.
my favorite part of spring snow is that you don't have to wear your coat.
no gloves.
even if you make a snowman.
ESPECIALLY if you make a snowman.
i loved this day.

Spring snowy days

Spring snow.
It dumps and dumps pretty white flakes everywhere.
The sun comes out.
Everything looks clean.
And smells fresh.
I love to open my door and stick my face outside after it has snowed all night.
It wakes me up and puts me in a good mood.
March is my favorite month of a new year.
Snowy days.
Sunny days.
No coat needed on most days.
And the sun melts everything away to let us see the grass and pretend summer is close.
July is too hot to not appreciate spring snowy days.
