Unexpected "rainy"days

* yeah right, rain might actually be a nice change of pace...

** I am not one of those people who dont NOT complain about whatever season I am in, winter is too cold, summer is too bloody hott.. you get the idea...

As the past eight Mondays have gone, I am like one of those 9-5ers, except I work 830-400. But I get up, and I have a routine, and it works..

Today, as if you werent expecting it.. another nasty ass blizzard.. I mean.. you would think, we have enough, and how far do I have to go to let mother nature know I am serious about grass, and flipflops, and sun dresses???

This is what we woke up to this morning....

A whole lotttta snow!!!

To add to the dreafulness of it all..
Austin had a belly ache early this morning, which unfortunatly made us go through a lot of diapers ( if you know what I mean)
 *he is better now..

We didnt let it get us down..
Today we played with Playdough for the FIRST time.. At first he had absolutly no idea what to do with it, I mean of course he wanted to eat it first, then I showed him..

 "mush this"

He was sold.. LOVED IT!!!

Momma made a "kit-tee"

If you count, laundry,dishes, and floors BIG accomplishments, then by golly I got a lot done today..

On another note, luckily Margaret found the stocking that Loreda had ordered, but never got to start for Austin. And I was hesitant, and with much reluctantcy I have started, and thus far put in about four hours, and am doing quite well..

This is the Moose's head..

I have a long way to go, but I am taking it slow, and hopefully it will be okay..
Lately, as a "spending time together" incentive we have been playing games at night after dinner. Not that we dont spend time together, we do..Everyday ( I mean night) but it is mostly becomes co-exisiting after days and days, we wanted to invest in actual activites.. ( the games were Keiths idea )

Austin, of course is not always sleeping during these activities, and as a result is becoming a yathzee master.. He can roll dice ( we give him his own die so it doesnt interfer with our rolling, shhh dont tell him)

yes, we give him a score card too

he thinks its funny!

This weekend on our vacation, Keith put together Austin's toy box, and yes! it is FULL!!

it looks A-MAZING!!
Overall, I am one happy camper ( yes I would like to be camping, this darn snow is ENOUGH)

We got to go sledding this weekend, and I got alittle windburn.. OUCH! it does hurt! ( not as much a sunburn though lol)

Happy Monday!

yes, he is eating his saw!!
