Cheesey Beth

She didn't get hurt, of course! Landed right on her soft diaper and didn't even cry a bit. So just enjoy that every-muscle-in-her-face "cheeeeeeeeeese"

First Snowfall of the Winter

Yesterday, Sunday afternoon, I thought I'd try to take a little snooze when I put Elizabeth down. So I made sure the other kids were settled in an activity and that Tyra knew she needed to help Lily if she asked for help. About 15 minutes later I kept hearing squealing coming from downstairs. It wasn't just one kid, and it didn't sound like a fight, but I couldn't figure out what all the squealing could be. As I walked down the stairs I realized it was what the kids have been waiting for for months "Snow! It's SNOWING!" they were squeaking and running from window to window. Tyra had a chart up all December ready with the days of the month and how many inches of snow fell each day. Not a one. But now she's happy! The pictures are from this morning since the kids had a 2 hour delay for school. They didn't mind that it had rained a little and made the top layer all crunchy, they were all just happy to be in boots and gloves playing in the frozen stuff.
