warrior snow princess

have it be known that my name from this point forward will be: 
warrior snow princess.
b/c this morning, i shoveled a foot of snow and ice off of our tramp. 
and liked it.
in other news...
i would like to report that,
i take it back.
there is in fact something worse than changing a fitted crib sheet.
getting two kids dressed for the snow.
again.
and again.
and again.
and again.
at least today they stayed out for an entire hour and i didn't have to redress them once.
christmas miracle!!!
it was sunny and warm,
i didn't even put my coat on.
i found brennan's missing flip flop buried under all of that snow on the tramp.
and we ended up with a pretty great snow hill after i shoveled it all out of the little door.
which i jumped out onto when i was done.
max too.
hip, hip hooray.
p.s.
we are not sleeping at our house.
it's been about two months.
or 7. 
whichever.
brennan comes walking in several times during the night.
we walk him right back.
chase has been up more than when he was a newborn.
and it seems like if the boys are sleeping,
max decides she should be up.
glory be,
i need a nap.

This makes me cold. And jealous.

Lucky!

Unlike Jen, I am NOT jealous...of the snow...or of the lack of sleep!

(Maybe kinda jealous of the cute kids, though.)

Are they sick? So sad about that. Love your new name. Snow Warrior Princess. It has a nice ring to it.
