Winter Fun

We went to Ogunquit over the long weekend. My sister has friends nearby who live on a farm. We had a blast hanging out there for the day.

Gianna tried to make friends with some of the animals.

Then we went sledding and snowmobiling...

It was cold but we were all troopers!

Thank you Kimmy and Paula for a fantastic time!

Happy Valentine's Day

Gianna made this for KoKo this morning. She thought he needed a Valentine and named her "Sophia". It's now hanging over KoKo's water dish.

And Happy Valentine's Day to the love of my life...

Missing you

I have this picture hanging on my fridge. It never, ever makes me sad to look at this one. I feel like I just called "Hey Dad" and he's glancing over to look at me. I know this look so well. It captures him perfectly.

Julia's drawings

I absolutely love Julia's drawings. She did this one for school. It says, "I have a snowball fight with my brother."

Just look at the smile on her face while she's throwing the snowball at her brother...

and look at his face as he's being hit by the snowball...

She learned the word "affection" for vocabulary this week. Her sentence for affection, "I show affection by giving my Mom a hug."

I'm so lucky to have a daughter who loves me so much.

Buried Alive...

This is how I've been feeling lately...

Yes, I'm still here...

I haven't been up to blogging lately...for many reasons...but life has been moving along...as it should.

Nicholas got to play at the Boston Bruins game again recently for the "3 minutes of fame" scrimmage. He did a fantastic job! It's so much fun to watch our little boy skate in such a big arena!

It's like the Arctic around here. This picture doesn't even do it justice how much snow we have on the ground. This was taken before yet another big snow storm. We are buried here!! The roads are getting so narrow. Every week we get hit with a snow storm. The kids have already had 4 snow days and two, 2-hour delays so far this winter.

In addition to all the snow days, Nicholas missed a week of school due to strep throat. I think we're all more than ready for the Spring! Wasn't I the one wishing for snow just a short time ago? I guess you have to be careful for what you wish for!!!

Look at this...

The other day I walked into the living room to see Gianna and her "friends" watching a movie. These are her "buddy" dogs. They are watching themselves as they star in their "Snow Buddies" movie. Too cute.

I'm hoping for brighter days ahead.
