Playing in the snow

Although it is all melting in the sun now, we got up early this morning and went out to play in the snow

Snow angels


Our house, notice the big dog on the porch.

Yesterday we had a picnic on the deck.
Today it has been full on snowing all day
And it's still coming down

What's with this weather anyway?

This morning I looked at the thermometer around 9:30 and said holy cow, time to go out and play.  Since I am sick with a hacking cough, Papa went out to play instead. He went and got dirt to fill the holes where the swings were.  He had some help filling the holes.

They worked so hard they were hungry for lunch. A picnic was just the thing for some grubby yard workers.  We said smile Michael, and that was what we got. 

After Mommy got hooks for the swings, Daddy hung them and the kids got to swing in their own yard. We have another crossbeam to hang, since she has another couple of swings to hang. 

It was a nice day to be outside, supposed to turn colder for the next couple of days again, not even above freezing tomorrow.

Our House

Now that it's framed and hung, we can enjoy the painting of our house.

Little workers

In the never ending battle against mud, little workers stay busy. Here you see them trying to clear some mud off the driveway so they can ride their bikes.  They are hard workers!

Tea Party

Last week Holly and I had a tea party. She dressed fancy like Fancy Nancy of literary fame(one of her favorite books).


We set the table with fancy china and baked some blueberry muffins.

We practiced drinking tea with our pinky fingers in the proper tea drinking position.


We also practiced manners and polite conversation.

A lovely time was had by all.

I had to walk around with a crowbar this morning and break open the water for animals. The high today is supposed to be 17.
