It is most assuredly winter here.

Little piles of wet clothes, jackets, snowy shoes and various winter flotsam are appearing everywhere.

Put 'em in the dryer? Nah.

An obscenely large amount of tea, coffee, and hot chocolate has been consumed. 

Warms yer gizzard.

Oh and we have been rockin' the fleece-lined grey sweatpants ensemble. Cuz nothing is more flattering than sweats with elastic cuffs at the bottom, right?

The grey sweatpants duo.

Since Hubs is home on vacay, we took the boys ice skating again today.  Someone is a little frustrated that he can't skate and "shoot da puck" just yet, but we're working on it.

How to teach something I can't do myself?

Since the ice was fairly empty, I bravely tried on my own skates and gave it a shot. Here I am, for the first time ever. 

Ta - freakin - da!

Unfortunately, right after this photo the wind blew, knocked over my milk crates and I went crashing to the ice. It was all good though, I'm fine and can't wait to lace up again.

The requisite baby-in-a-snowsuit photo.

Finally we ditched the skates and gave the toddler what he really wanted.

"Da stick and da puck!"

I'm really, really not much of a winter person, but I want my boys to love the snow so I am (slowly) learning to love it too.  Now, if you'll excuse me I need to go massage my butt. 


  1. awesome wish i could be there to share the laughs

  2. Good for you learning to ice-skate! I'm not good at it, but I love it- it's just one of those things you don't have to be good at to enjoy, I guess. Your kids are adorable.
    It's 18 degrees below freezing up here, today. I could use some of those fleece lined sweatpants.

  3. Thanks guys
    R&T - 18 below?! dear lord that's cold! I gotta say, the fleecey sweatpants are pretty sweet - and oh-so-slimming! :) ha ha ha!!!
