When I got up it was time for Buggy to come in. She kept losing her gloves and her little hands were frozen. She joined me inside in the warmth and I made her a mug of hot chocolate. It was a big hit. About an hour later a crying Boogie came in. Poor guy, his little hands hurt so much because of the cold. After a quick trip to the bathroom, shedding his snow clothes, and a mug of hot chocolate with marshmallows, my little guy was quite happy again.
Our neighbor is a great guy and offered the use of his snowblower. He's a very nice guy, but I also think he could hear Boogie's very loud questions about when I was going to the hospital to give birth to Baby J. I think our neighbor was very happy to help however he could.
We had a relaxing afternoon and once again I was able to take advantage of Hubby being home and was able to take another nap. I'm taking advantage of getting a nap whenever I can these days. When I woke up, the boys were out again. The snow plow had come by and finally plowed out our cul-de-sac, but of course dumped snow in front of our driveway. While Hubby shoveled, Boogie played in the snow. They also took time to build a snowman. I was so happy Boogie was able to do this. Even though we had back to back blizzards last year, he never made a snow man. It was actually too much snow to wade through for a 3 (almost 4) year old.
We had a relaxing dinner of grilled cheese and soup, perfect for a cold winter day. I was happy to have my family home and to enjoy some time with them before we become a family of 5 :)
|Buggy talking on the phone while she prepares "dinner." She was "talking" to her Lola. I think this is how she often sees me when I'm cooking dinner. I'm usually talking to a friend and trying to multitask.|
|I love the look on Boogie's face of finally making a snowman. Something he's talked about since the last big snowstorm, a year ago.|
|I love the look of joy on his face.|
