Project 365 {week 4}

This week probably would have been relatively mundane if not for…

THE POLAR VORTEX.

As I type this we have about three feet of snow on our back deck.

This week Thursday, while driving the boys home from daycare, Eddie started crying when his pants got all wet from his boots:

“I HATE SNOW! AND I HATE WINTER! IT’S BORING AND I WANT IT TO BE WARM SO I CAN PUT MY PIGGIES IN THE GRASS AND RIDE MY BIKE! WAAAAAA!!!!”

I feel ya, bud. Me too.

January 19: Pizza night...err...pick yer nose night?

January 20: Our very first parent/teacher conference for Eddie. Look! He drew a picture of me! He even included my belly button and my brain. Because duh.

January 21: We struggle to keep clothes on this one. Even when it's sub-zero outside. Kids are weird.

January 23: I made it too school, but barely. Our subdivision was only two-tracks and it was like a skating rink until I got away from the lake shore and closer to work.

January 24: The wind started up and the drifts were already forming when I picked up the boys. We hunkered down for the weekend.

January 25: Eddie and Cort brave the snow piles, the wind, and the cold. Charlie is jealous. I am not. (taken with my DSLR)

I want to stop talking about the snow.

But more than that I want the snow to go away.

I know, I know. It’s January in Michigan.

I’ll just have to deal.

But I don’t have to like dealing.

Hurmumph.

    The Jan.24 pic w/ I presume your feet on Cort’s lap? At first glance, it looked like he just had very tiny legs. Check it out. And then you won’t be able to NOT see it. 🙂

  5. So so so over the snow. And the cold.

  6. Eddie, I can totally relate! There is only one solution when the bottom of your pants get wet from snow or rain: go directly home, take off your pants, and go directly to bed. There is nothing else you can possibly do.

  7. I won’t complain about the cold snap here after seeing all this snow there! Stay safe and warm!!!

  8. I’m not sure….but you’re belly button seems as big as your brain! LOL
    kids are awesome — just not for our egos always. I remember when my middle included my c section star and big nursing boobs on a picture of me. thanks kid! ha.

    The snow I can handle, I’d like the temperature to stop going past the minus 30 C mark.
    honestly, I’m expecting the march of the penguins down my street at any minute.
