I think we live in one of the only places in the mid-west that has not enjoyed snow this season. I grew up in this area and always remember having snow in the winter, but that stinkin' global warming has really cut us off from that in recent years. So, when we got our snow this week, I took advantage of it by taking a day off from work.

The first day, we only had about 3 inches in the front yard to enjoy. A. and I took turns pulling the kids on their sleds. Baby Bear, who is definitely been sent to motivate me on my weight loss journey, asked me to get on the sled so he could pull me. Knowing that he would have some commentary, I hesitated but decided to give it a shot.

BB: Mommy, let me pull you.
Me: K, you sure?
BB: Yup!
Me: Okay, show me your muscles!
BB: (Pulling)
BB: (Tugging)
BB: (Looks to the sky and I knew it was coming) Dear Jesus, I'm not going to be able to pull this thing. The End.
Me: (wondering why we taught the children to talk)

I was also able to get a couple of cute pics. This first one is of Baby Bear two years ago.

Compared to my little guy today, complete with Napoleon Dynamite moon boots...

And yes, that is a Christmas decoration on the door still. Shut it.

Princess Moo (who absolutely fell to the ground crying when A. hit her with a snow ball, but had no issue pelting us)

Right before we went outside to play, everyone had to take a nap including A., who tends to like to sleep a good hour longer than the rest of us. When I asked, Mooka if he was awake yet, she responded with this...

Moo: He's not awake. I put him under a sleeping spell.
Me: Can you undo that spell?
Moo: Nope, you have to go kiss him.
Me: (Glare)
Moo: Um, maybe not. How about if you just touch him with your finger.
Me: Done!

I'm pretty sure this will be it for the snow this season, but it was fun while it lasted.

Yay!! I'm so glad you finally got your snow! (I'd be happy to bring you a truckload of it this weekend if you'd like.)
