Happy first day of Spring!!





Yes, happy first day of Spring. Nebraska has had an incredibly mild winter, but she's not ending it that way. This is only our 3rd real snowstorm of the whole year, so I can't really complain. It started snowing Sunday night and hasn't really stopped yet! Monday, Whitney stood at the door a lot of the day checking it all out. She gave the door a good cleaning by licking it too. Hey, gotta start those chores at an early age right? State Farm sent everyone home early yesterday andMatt doesn't have to go in today until 10 am, so he took the kiddos sledding over at the elementary school hill yesterday, and I bundled up Whitney to take some pictures outside. It is a really pretty snow, the snow is pretty heavy so it makes for great snowballs and snowmen, and not so bad driving. One thing I do love about the snow is that we all hunker down and play games and snuggle up inside. We've made cookies and even went out to deliver them to the new neighbor that shoveled everyones sidewalks last night. So I guess we'll stay in (the car has an awful lot of snow), and enjoy the Spring season. Here's to tulip wishes and baby bunny dreams.

I heard on the news that you guys got a foot of snow! yikes.

We have had a "bad" winter here too, of course that just means that have to wear jackets, it rians a lot and we have to turn the heat on two days in a row....I am not complaining.....

I do miss snow.

These are some great pictures Wendy. I bet the kids are having a ton of fun in the snow. I picked up my first Dove truffle today. It was scrumptious!!!

Cute chowing on the snow and WOW... I'm going to add a few layers... just looking at the photos makes me cold.

I love it when babies clean the glass with their tongues. My 2nd son did that to our bedroom closet doors (big mirrors) when he was about 2, I think. It was great!

Love the pictures, but I'm glad we're finally seeing sun here in Utah. I don't think I can take much more of winter.
