Blizzard Bliss

Jamie got his wish for SNOW!

We had a pretty decent snowstorm yesterday. In New England, it's an old joke that with any impending snow, people flock to the grocery store for bread and milk. You never know what can happen with six inches on the ground (or even one or two). So Jamie and Shawn braved the snow to head down to the convenience store a couple streets over. Jamie had a blast because Shawn pulled him on the sled the entire way. However, in this household, the staple that sends us out in the middle of a snowstorm is for more beer. Shawn realized he was completely out of beer (perish the thought!), so he thought it would be a grand excursion to go get some with Jamie. As crazy as that sounds, Jamie loved it!

Jamie's 30 minutes of being outside wiped him out, so we spent the remainder of the day cozied up inside with the fireplace going and watching the snow fall. As well as entertaining two restless children. Jamie has been into putting on shows for us lately (he comes by it honestly since Shawn has a BA in theatre). Jamie's audience sits on the couch and watches whatever show is being performed that day. Sometimes it's a scooter show, sometimes it's a ninja show, yesterday it was Mr. Funny Heart singing Clare's favorite song, "Itsy Bitsy Spider." We recorded it with our camera, but I have not figured out how to post that on the blog. Clare enjoyed the show. Each time Jamie... I'm sorry, Mr. Funny Heart finished the song, she would clap and say, "More? More?" She was a very enthusiastic audience! I love seeing the two of them interact and play together. Clare loves the attention she receives from Jamie, and he loves having an adoring little sister. Jamie is more than happy to perform for Clare!

I love Mr. Funny Heart! Yay!

Enjoy that snow. Our snowstorm staples are, in list of importance, (1) red wine, (2) milk, and (3) toilet paper. We mustn't EVER run out of red wine.

:) Enjoy the wintry beauty!

YAY for snow! It has been a heck of a year for snow in our area. Whew...I am starting to get spring fever.

Logan would totally be the one trekking through the snow to get more beer. However, he would use the excuse that we needed more formula. HA!

I love the pictures, they both look so happy!
