this week

This week we saw a few glimpses of spring. Maybe, just maybe, there is some light at the end of the tunnel. And lots of mud. But I’ll take mud over snow.

week in review

I was all ready to complain about the other foot of snow we got this week, but today brought sun and 40 degrees and melting, so maybe, just maybe spring is on the horizon.

in like a lion…

Why not welcome March with a snowstorm…definitely wasn’t enough snow around here. In other news…

It’s cold. My snowboot broke. Em and I both lost a mitten. Winter, you win.

Greetings from yet another snow storm. We’re snowed in again. New England has decided to give us a great welcome winter. In case we wanted to rethink our decision to move back.

six more weeks of winter…

I probably shouldn’t complain about the snow and the ice and the cold since I don’t have to leave the house much, but two years in California made me soft. At least Em is enjoying the snow…when it’s warm enough to be outside.

winter wonderland

We survived our first snow storm of the year (or in Em’s case, first in her life). We had some fun but I’m ready for spring. Hopefully the groundhog has some good news tomorrow.

Always watching out for her Wallydog. IMG_9714We’re not in California anymore…IMG_9740Facetiming with Jinx.IMG_9744Cooking with Grandma.IMG_9753   Working on using utensils.IMG_9772Excited to be wearing her snow pants for the first time.IMG_9781Queen of the mountain!IMG_9808She’s a natural!IMG_9858 IMG_9854 IMG_9821   She had some help from her brother.IMG_9865Wally caught trying to steal the snowman’s nose.IMG_9870What?
