Usually I don't bother commenting on the snow or the weather at all, because it seems like everybody else does. But I can say this; being a stay at home mom, I don't mind the snowstorms nearly as much, because I don't usually have to drive through them. I can sit here, look out the window, and appreciate the beauty of how snow rests on the pine trees and balances precariously in a little 3 inch tower on the fence. Makes me want to run outside with my camera, and get that prize winning shot.
The kids enjoy a fresh snowfall, as well. It hadn't snowed since the weekend of Christmas, and that snow is old and crusty now, no fun at all. Nothing like a fresh layer of snow to stomp around in!
A Late Christmas Update
Christmas is not always fun here, because I spend a lot of time trying to get the boys to care when they'd rather just sit in the basement and watch their same videos day in and day out. And of course by "sit", I mean jump and run around. But this year, at least AJ got into the opening of presents. Once we got him going, he was tearing stuff up. He wouldn't always show a lot of interest in what he had opened, but he sort of got into it. When he opened the DVD The Wonder Pets Save the Reindeer, he and Zack both got pretty excited and wanted me to put it in right away, which was unusual for them, to actually like something new. Normally we have to warm up to new things for several days.... have to admit to getting a little teary a couple of times. It's always so thrilling to see them do something an ordinary 4 year old would do!
