It has been snowing a lot this week, and the wet heavy kind.  Usually we get the powder fine snow that is easy to shovel, but hard to build a snowman with! With 6 inches in the driveway I headed out with the girls after lunch, while Owen napped, to get the shoveling out of [...]

Just in case Owen isn't the only one with the desire to put a train in his sisters' hair!  This is what happens - and it hurts!   The back story --  I was vacuuming up after the Christmas tree removal and had shooed Sophia and Owen into the kitchen while I did so.  Owen [...]

Sophia, Owen, Emmalie, and GabriellaOf course my snow bunnies are big part of my highlight! And of course the reason for my constant running to and fro.

Here We Are

This mama is a little emotional! The first day of kindergarten is exciting and new, and a little bit hard. Sophia's first sentence this morning was "I'm 5 now too." She wanted to go with her sisters and not be the one left at home. We all sat on the kitchen floor for a few [...]
