Where was I when it flew by? Oh, I remember. . .I was just getting over nausea and was busily eating. (Translated : I was gaining 15 pounds in the month of February. :-) We also didn't do much as we were slammed with feet of snow - beautiful snow. (More beautiful to me since I wasn't the one shoveling!) As the snow fell and fell, I decided
if my backyard cannot be bursting with the green of spring/summer,
or laced with the hues of fall,
I'd rather have the white drape of snow than the ugly brown of winter!
Poor Troy and Seth had quite the time digging us out of the mess. Personally I love to shovel, but the activity and pregnancy do not seem to go hand in hand. So I busied myself with making cup after cup of hot cocoa.
There is a minivan under this pile!
With the snow came loads of fun with "boogie boards" - the only form of sled that could be found in this town,
icicles to munch,
and made from scratch funnel cakes to devour! (Not to mention the many days Troy got to stay home as the world was closed down here.)
And what better activity than baking when you're cooped up in a house?!
A February highlight for the boys was to help a friend, Erin Sawyer, care for some horses. They had a great time filling water tanks, handing out treats, getting hay and watching the horses prance and frolic. I love the up close sound of hooves!
The fearless one.
I love this shot of Erin helping Silas walk through the "muck" to feed the Shetland.
Kids are so trusting. . .
