Snow Day...

*The one lone soul willing to get out this morning...with his blade*

I'm pretty sure this probably makes post number one million in the blog world.  I'm joining the throngs of people stating the obvious today.  Everyone is talking about the massive amounts of snow hitting the Midwest...in my hometown of Kansas City, they're calling it 'Snowmageddon'.  In Iowa we're just calling it a typical winter and it's business as usual...we're hardcore like that.

Today, we're hunkering down.  The kiddos are building forts and crawling through tunnels, B is shoveling us out, and I'm on hot drink duty, keeping the refills of hot tea and hot chocolate flowing...


There's one person who could care less that it's cold, windy and snowy...

*Okay...make that two since they're both all smiles*

The little miss chose to wear brother's dinosaur jammie bottoms (two legs in one leg hole) and a blanket as a toga.  At least she's working towards modesty...

In other news, we are moderately working on potty training.  Yesterday was a set back as the little miss screamed "Ouchie!" every few minutes...I think she realizes that when you gotta go, it's painful to hold it.  It seemed like the novelty wore off and strong wills were abounding, so we figured we would throw in the towel and hang up our potty patrol hats.  But, today the little miss has been pushing the potty all over the house and sitting on it, so I guess it's still "Game On."
(name the movie that quote is from...)
This afternoon, I'm using the kiddos nap time to work on another repurposed project for Thrifted Threads Thursday! So, meet me back here tomorrow!

Happy Wednesday!

yeah, i know we got 8 inches yesterday, but honestly, it's not anything compared to last year. it's just typical iowa winter weather. plus, my sister is digging out from 22 inches in chicago today. my hometown has the record so far (22 in) and has been declared a disaster area. so i'm not gonna complain about what we got. though, that's probably easy for me to say, since i don't have to shovel it or go out in it. :)

Yeah, chicago really got hit! It's crazy! I'm with you...I'm not the shoveler, so I'm probably not the best snow critic.

Too cute! My children are always half dressed as well and they don't seem to care that it is freezing outside!
Isn't that from "Wayne's World?"
