snow much fun

I have not been feeling well today.  Not at all.

So I am not feeling very scribe-ish or posty this evening.

Instead, I will just give you some pictures of my boys.

We live in Michigan..West Michigan.  So we get lots of lake effect snow, however compared with the rest of the country, this has been a fairly mild winter for us.

This weekend we finally got “play-able” snow.  After nap on Sunday, I got Eddie all geared up, Cort got himself geared up, and my matching men went out to play.

do these pants make my boo-tay look big?

the snow is THIS way!

come ON, dad!

Let's go explore, my little mini-me!

I need a shovel for the clubhouse!

exploring the winter wonderland.

We tried to get him outside with out the pipey in his mouth, but it is his saftey lovey when he is nervous…and the snow made him nervous (which I can TOTALLY relate to, little bud!)

They probably were only outside for 20 minutes, but it wore the little guy out…slept like a log that night.

Now I can’t wait for Cort to take him on the sled so I can sit inside alone and sip hot cocoa!  Yay!  Such fun Michigan winters bring!

  1. Your pictures = adorable. Your plan to remain indoors sipping hot cocoa = genius.

    I must learn how to do the cross-out thing (here’s where I betray how techno-lame I am that I don’t already know how to do that).

    Hope you feel better (a little Bailey’s in the cocoa might help).

  2. SO cute – love that they have matching jackets!!

  3. So fun! Sometimes I wish we got snow just to see Rylie play in it, but instead we went out in t-shirts and kicked a ball around 🙂

    I love his snow outfit! He’s a cutie 🙂

  4. Gotta love Michigan, I am in the Southeastern part of the State and we are getting hammered by a snowstorm as we speak! It is beautiful to watch and I look forward to playing with the kids in it! I hope you feel better. I am recovering from the flu bug myself. It hit my whole family this past weekend. Ughhhh so ready for it to be over!

  5. Your boys are soooo cute! LOVE the blue “binky”. It’s the same soother we just weaned my son off of (3y/o). Your youngest reminds me of him last year.

    Enjoy the cocoa I mean the snow 😉

  6. We finally have enough snow to play in now too! Well…. we had some but that freak 50 degree weather melted it all! My girls were outside as soon as we got home yesterday!
    Only downside to the Michigan winter weather is that it tends to stick around a while sometimes.

  7. How cute are your little guys! I love the pictures – we’re hoping to have our own snow day this afternoon, after the snow finally lets up enough to see past your nose. Hope you’re feeling better today!

  8. I love they Daddy and son are wearing red and black! Jealous of your accumulation, we didn’t get much!

  9. They really are matching! I am sure he was tired out, he’s a little guy the snow was up to his waist.

  10. I won’t lie, I just looked at the pictures. My eyes are all wonky right now but I love me some Eddie shots 😉

  11. Awww, so cute! Brayden HATED being out in the snow, so I hope that he comes around eventually.

  12. Girl, it’s disgustingly cute that they have matching jackets!

  13. they’re like little twins w/ those jackets.

    we had SO much snow today. so fun.
