“Mommy, winter came back.”

After weeks of warm weather (like really warm! I had to put sunscreen on the kids a few times!) we woke up to this last Monday morning:

“Mommy?” James said to me

“Winter came back.”

Yes dear son it sure did!  I knew in my heart it was too early for spring (and the weather man kept tell us that as well). Even my daylilies thought it was spring! I’m not sure they will make it until spring or not now. 😦

The snow was so pretty though and so fluffy I wanted to take pictures of the kids in it. James didn’t want to but Gideon and Faith were willing participants.

I got this coat from Grandma Sharon. We are hoping it will bring back spring! 😀

James finally decided he was missing out. But he forgot his coat.

What do we do in the house after spending the last several weeks outside? We actually went shopping that morning. It was president’s day and my favorite second hand stores were 50% off. And there I bought this kid’s board game. If you don’t want to spend the rest of your life playing this with your kids then DON’T BUY IT!! This is now their favorite game. I am constantly playing it with them.

Also we got a big box in the mail from Grandma. The kids really like these big boxes they get in the mail! 🙂 James and Gideon sitting on the box before we opened it:

Grandma didn’t even know that Gideon’s favorite story is the 3 little pigs. This shirt was a big hit!!

Boys and boats

There were boats at the camp we stayed at for the reunion.   My brothers loved the time on the water, and naturally James did too.  They were sweet enough to include James on their excursions.

While they were boating I took these super cute pictures of Gideon.  I’m just loving the colors and his smile in these!

Then the boys decided to go rescue a paddle boat that was off by it’s self.  So Grandma had to get involved.
