We got out and played in the backyard on Monday.  Most of this week will be pictures from that day

Here's the Crew:

Mowg, complete with lime green boots and Mom's Neoprene socks.

Tiny, with warm snowpants and cute hats

And the ever-stylish (NOT!) Mom with chest waders, Teva's and a camo coat.
(Hey they fit and I was dry!)


 This is one angle in our new backyard.

On the backyard "stage" a snow fight ensues

Another example of my impeccable fashion sense. :)

Da Girls

"Tiny Can I wreck your snowman?" Mowg
She nods her head.  She's laughing at his stomping through it and over to her.
Apparently it's very funny.

Snow buried bikes and fresh deep snow.

Happy Thanksgiving!
Did you have a good one?

I have finally gotten things worked out for the time being.  I needed some more photo storage and I've solved that problem for the moment.  (Have you ever made a Blurb book?  http://www.blurb.com/  It is the coolest!   I'll gush more about that another day.)  We're settling into our new place and it's starting to feel like home.  We have much to be thankful for as it was bitterly cold and we were toasty and warm.

We got snow for Thanksgiving

 Thanksgiving Morning I was working on a sewing project and my dearest had to work.  The kids had to be in the same room with me and needed something to do besides sit on my lap and fight over who was going to help me sew.  So I let Tiny take a pin for a minute.  She'd take it over to a pillow I'd just made her Dad and stick it in and then Mowg would bring it to me and we'd start over.  Well it wasn't long before she took exception to this plan.  So I just gave them the whole box of pins with strict instructions not to lose any in the bed.  As a result they made our Thanksgiving Porcupine!  Happy Mom.  Happy Kids.  Incidentally isn't that a cool pillow?  It's a neck pillow.  They're easy to make and help your neck relax.  If you want to make your own check out this link:  http://sew4home.com/projects/pillows-cushions/464-last-minute-gift-pillows-relaxing-neck-pillow  They're fast and easy once you get over the initial "I can't do this" angst.  That's how it was for me.

Snow got serious for us and we were very thankful not be traveling.  School got cancelled 2 days in a row.  That doesn't happen here, ever.  It was crazy.  We snuggled in only going out for dinner.  (Thank you!)  It was wonderful.  I hope your thanksgiving was delicious and your heart full with all the things you have to be thankful for.
