For some reason it has been hard for me to blog lately. I don't know why. Okay, part of it is that my camera is broken. I just have a great lack of motivation in many areas right now, and blogging happens to be one of them. Richard took these pictures on his camera, and yes, I'm in my pajamas. I know. It was first thing in the morning after all, and so of course Kate was wearing a fancy dress and shoes. She changes her clothes about 10 times a day and that is not an exaggeration. You should see her room/closet! Eternal mess. Anyway, Kate loves to paint nails and she does a fairly decent job for a 3 year old. Today my nails are a combination of about 6 different colors applied 3 different times. It's pretty sweet. My toes look equally as awesome. I cherish my time with her. She is such a joy to me. She really is my little sunshine and I love her to pieces.

Adventures in the snow

The last weekend of February was spent on snowmobiles heading into Layne and Sarah's cabin. They are so great to invite us each year and we always have a great time. In spite of such a mild winter, we managed to be up in the mountains the one weekend with lots of snow and crazy wind gusts. I was happy to stay inside with Kate and Richard was wonderful to play with the other kids outside! Plus, the boys were in heaven because Richard let them drive the snowmobiles quite a bit. I think everyone's faces were covered up more often than not, as you'll see from the pictures. We are just grateful for masks and goggles, because it was fuh-reezing! Now that we've had a few good snow days, bring on Spring! I'm ready for a warm up! I'd still love to take my boys skiing this year snow, you can stay.... but only in the mountains.

The crew getting ready to head in....much nicer than on the way out!

A nice stop at a little gas station for hot chocolate and beef jerky finally warmed us up. BTW- I think beef jerky and diet coke is a fabulous combination. Try'll like it!
