Hey folks! Not much to report here ... except that we are still up to our knees in SNOW! Levi had a doctor's appointment yesterday so we ventured out on the tumultuous roads for a good part of the day and ran a few errands while we were out. Oh, and we ate hamburgers. Because when you are stuck in snow, you get to eat whatever you want. Isn't that how it works?
The day before, we had been lazing the day away and it had been two days since I had done my hair and makeup. So, I decided it was high time to put my face back on and some bounce back into my locks. Husby asked why I was getting ready and I hesitantly peered at him over my little mirror and said, "to play in the snow?"
He just laughed, threw on a sock cap and told me to come on!
I threw on multiple layers, (including Husby's swooshy pants) and had to spruce things up a bit with a mismatched hat and scarf. I knew pictures were bound to be involved in our little adventure, so I had to look at least somewhat presentable for the generations to come, when they scour through old family photos. I'm simply looking out for the family tree, guys. It's for their sake.
(Ah-hmm, aaaaand my girlish vanity.)
Sorry, guys. But I look 10 years old without makeup. No lie. I sent a picture to my brother of my makeup-less face a couple months ago and he thought it was an old picture of when I was like 12. And without mascara, well, you can't see my eyes. It's like trying to find a needle in a haystack. A weird, weird phenomenon that I am not about to demonstrate for you.
Well, I might one day, if I am totally lacking in blogging fodder.
Okay, so I look halfway normal in my snow attire, right? Um. Ha. Well. You should have seen my feet.
Yup, I was rocking Husby's SIZE 13 boots. Why, you ask? Because I do not own a pair of functional snow boots. All of my boots have high heels. Not ideal in 18 inches of snow.
So. We went outside to let Levi play in the snow and oh my gracious sakes alive, the kid is in love with it. You would have thought he was frolicking in fields of candy drops and lollipops - he was on cloud 9!
It was an absolute joy watching him delight in the snow. I'm telling you, this kid lives life to the fullest.
Daddy taught him how to make a snow ball.
And Mommy taught him how to throw it!
Our makeshift sled didn't work out too well.
But we managed to do it another way!
We had an awesome day. Just me and my boys.
I love love love being snowed in with my boys.
