Snowy Days...

This is what we've done during the most miserable month of the year!

We played in the snow...
After what seemed like hours of preparing the boys to go outside, they took one step in the snow and cried to go back inside!
How did Drew fix it? by throwing snowballs at the boys.

and they loved it!

Then I took the boys inside...
where Mac drank hot chocolate and G ate marshmallows.
Mac told jokes about poop and Gray laughed and laughed.
It was a great morning!
When we weren't outside (which was most of the time). We hit the library sometimes twice in a week. I'm pretty sure we've rented all their books about dinosaurs.
We let the boys play in rooms that they're usually not allowed in, and wear less clothes than normal.

Finished the guestroom/Annie's room (2 months ago:) during a different cold month.
And most recently Gray got surgery. Gray has had a clogged tear duct since he was born. We hoped that it would fix itself but it didn't, it only got worse. Finally we made the decision to do a tear duct probe. It was a simple procedure, he would only have to be "out" for half an hour. Everyone told me horror stories of their little ones coming out of anesthesia so we prepared for the worst. He woke up cried for a couple of minutes, went back to sleep and when he woke up the last time he just wanted to cuddle with Drew. The doctor told me to plan on Gray being sick and lethargic the rest of the day and honestly I was kind of looking forward to him just laying around with me. But to our surprise he was running around, wrestling with Mac as soon as we got home. We are blessed that Gray is such a happy guy!

Now we are looking forward to warmer, sunnier, longer days!
