Frozen Snow! 0

Last Week’s Snow.

We just got blanketed by a ton of snow. Probably one of the biggest snow falls we’ve ever had around here in years. I think we got more than 15 inches! It’s heavy wet snow too, so the trees are all bent over. Luckily we haven’t had power outages. I can’t wait to take the kids out in it to play once Henry wakes up from his nap! Here are pictures of the kids standing on the frozen over snow last...

Sledding, Kentucky Style.

Yesterday evening this happened: I don’t think these pictures accurately portray the size of our sledding hill. It is massive. Almost like a mountainside. So steep it was difficult to walk up it! In this video we started at the bottom third of the hill because Ada was too tired to walk up any further. Tyler made the video. In this video Tyler tried sledding. I didn’t realize that he had only been sledding once before. I don’t think he had...

White Stuff.

It really snowed! Leave it to Ada to lock us out of the house when it’s 10 degrees outside with a foot of snow on the ground. We were going to go out and play for just a few minutes. Our old Victorian door knob has this strange lock where you push a button on the door jamb area of the door to turn the lock on. It stays locked and you can open the door from the inside, but once...

Mummy!

Last Saturday we went to Cincinnati to see the mummy exhibit. It was fascinating. Unfortunately they didn’t allow pictures in the exhibit, which made me sad. They had mummies from Egypt, mummies that were naturally formed due to heat and acidic bogs and so on, and more recent people who had been mummified somehow when they were entombed in church crypts. Rosie was enthralled. Ada was kind of horrified. Henry kept pointing and saying, “Rawr!” Then doing his fake scream. Tyler...

Ada’s Food Allergies.

On Thursday Ada had her allergist appointment. For the past few months her she’s been crying day and night that her stomach hurts so badly and she’s had tons of gas. At first I thought it was because we let her try a few things with milk every now and then. She’s allergic to milk! She was also getting migraines several times a week. Totally not normal in a four year old! It broke my heart to see her in so...

Lauren’s 4th Birthday.

I am mighty jealous of all the snow I keep seeing on Facebook and on the news. We’ve gotten basically nothing. We did get a couple of inches that quickly melted with the sun a week or so ago. Then yesterday they changed our forecasted snowstorm to rain. We got tons of ugly cold rain. Sad. There’s not a single flake in the forecast coming up. We’ve been denied any fun snowfall for this winter it seems. My kids are disappointed....

Best Friends Forever.

Here are a few pictures from my phone from recently: Sunny day mud pie! Toes in the mud. Kept taking off his boots and socks until I gave up. The boy feels an unavoidable urge to reach all of the electronics and push all of their buttons, no matter what. His sisters did this. They also did this to him. The first snow of the winter on Saturday morning, which has already melted. This is the view from my kitchen window....

Snowy.

This morning someone rang our doorbell at 7 a.m., when it was still dark out. Tyler stumbled out of bed because the dogs started barking and the baby started crying. He went downstairs and opened the door only to find someone wanting to shovel the snow on our sidewalk for booze money. In the dark. On Saturday morning. Are you kidding? By then the baby was awake. The dogs wanted to go out. The sun wasn’t even up yet. I don’t...

A brief respite from the cold.

We’ve been enjoying the warmer weather lately. For the past two days it’s been in the mid 50’s with sun! I am so ready for spring. We’ve had no snow this winter, just lots and lots of ugly gray days with freezing temps and just-above-freezing rain. Yuck. The kids have played outside for hours during the past couple of days. Sun. SUN! And Ada with her short hairs!! Excuse his crusty nose. He’s had his first cold ever and I practically...

The First Haircut.

That’s right, Henry got his first hair cut. I put it off for as long as I could, but he was starting to look like a homeless person without access to regular hygiene. We weren’t sure how he would do sitting still for someone to trim his hair, so we wanted to go to a kiddie place. Unfortunately the only one was an hour away! Luckily it’s right by my parents’ house, so we stopped in to get Henry’s hair cut...
