Snow, Snow...

And more Snow.  When you have already received a massive amount of snow fall this winter, and it snows 10 more inches two days ago and it is snowing right now... what do you do?  If you are the boys, you go sledding!

Trevor was the first one out and the last one in.  He loves the snow.  After using the snow tube repeatedly, he decided (by the advice of Nolan) to use his stomach as a sled. 
Griffin had such a difficult time walking in the snow, which is no surprise seeing we have more inches of snow than Griffin is tall.  He did not love the walking back up the hill, but he loved, loved the ride down.
Nolan , in typical Nolan fashion, was jumping and rolling down the hill.  He also tried his stomach as a sled stunt and had a blast.  When he came in, he had snow everywhere!
So even though the boys had fun in the snow, I am officially over the snow.  I am tired of dreaming about the sun and warmer weather, I am ready to live it!

Think Spring?

We have been looking for Spring,
but it looks like we are stuck with Winter a little bit longer.

Griffin is ready for vacation,

and so am I!

Ride, Griffin, Ride

Check out Griffin's new set of wheels.
He loves to zip around the kitchen in his plasma car.
We can't wait until Spring so we can take it for a spin outside.
Thanks Nana and Papa.

Field Trip

I went snow tubing with the 4th graders today.
I thought I would just hang out and watch the kids and maybe tube once or twice.
Boy was I wrong.  I was responsible for pushing kids down one of the lanes (or whatever they are called, trails???).  Motrin was calling my name when I got home and I am not sure my knees will ever be the same again. 
I had a blast though.  The kids were so sweet and they had so much fun.  One of Trevor's best friends kept coming back to my lane and it was too cute.  I went down the trails a few times too.  It was a good time.  Trevor and I want to go back and go tubing again.

A Good Morning

We are all still cozy in our pajamas {Griffin is still sleeping}.  It is a good morning.

We don't have any sporting event until this evening.  It is a good morning.
The sun is rising and it is beautiful.  It is a good morning.

And it will be a great day {because truly every day is pretty good}.

Griffin's 3 Year Stats

Griffin had his THREE year old check up today.  He did great.  He was so cooperative and did everything they asked of him.  They said they would like to use him as the patient for medical students because he was so accommodating.  I wish he was always that way.
He is still a big, big boy.  He is in the 95% for weight, weighing 40 pounds (exactly).  He is in the 80% for height.  He is 38.75 inches tall.  He is wearing size 4 shirts and 3 pants.  He is a healthy, happy, active boy!

Picture Perfect

Since the Fall, I have wanted to take my kids to this spot and take their pictures.  It was beautiful with all the Fall leaves and it is beautiful now covered in snow.  I think it would make the perfect photo spot.
I have yet to take the kids there.  We just have not had the free time and it takes an act of congress to get my three boys to cooperate for a picture.  Maybe one of these days.

Even More Snow.

This morning we woke to another round of snow.
This is the snow that I like.
It looks beautiful
and it does not cancel school!
{but it does make driving a pain.}

A 3rd Birthday Celebration

Today, with family and friends, we celebrated Griffin's 3rd birthday.  He loves farm animals so we had a farm themed birthday.  He loved his balloons, especially the cow balloon.  He sat and bounced on it until it finally popped.  I always realize how blessed I am at my children's birthday parties.  For one, because I am so fortunate to have the wonderful children I have and to be able to celebrate another year with them.  And also because I have such a loving, supportive family that are so helpful and thoughtful.  I am blessed to have a family that loves me and loves my children so much!  Anyways, that was a little tangent I just went off on, so without further ado, I will let Griffin's birthday pictures speak for themselves.

A Big Help.

Yesterday, after we received a ridiculous amount of snow,
Trevor helped by shoveling the deck.
This was no small task as there was a LOT of snow.
He did have the help of his personal fan club
who cheered him for all his hard work!
Thanks, Trevor,  I appreciate it and so does CC (now she can make it out to go to the bathroom)!

PJ Day

Today is another snow day.  School, daycare and (it seems like) the entire State of Maine is closed. 
Since the boys and I are stuck in the house,
we are staying in our
(Don't mind Griffin's wet PJ shirt, he just had a "pop"cicle.)
PJ's all day long.
