Snow Days!!!



It was only about an inch of snow, but they made the most of it. And bitter cold made sure that what fell stuck around for 2 days, and iced over the winding back roads so that we got out of school for two days. Owen got his first ride on a sled and got up off of it just thrilled. The video clip here is actually the second time down. If you listen closely you can hear his little happy sounds, and he turns around to run right back up and do it again. :)

It's only a matter of time...


Jeff texts me from upstairs (yes, upstairs): "See if Emma wants to come up and play with Owen." Emma is thrilled she can read this message! She texts him back, "Hi Daddy!" I realize it will only be a matter of time before she's rattling off texts like Sophie. Thank heaven we have unlimited texting on our plan! Sophie announced to us the number of texts she sent last month (she's checked...it's a status symbol, I think), informed us that I sent the next highest number (thanks, Lisa!!!) and that Jeff was last. All I can say is that I'm glad Sophie and I don't have the same kind of phone any more or I would be going crazy. As it is, Jeff and I are saying to each other, "Is that you or me?" Technology. How did we live without it?

Owen, Elmo, and Andrea Bocelli

Jeff happened upon this video of a couple of our favorite guys on YouTube...and Owen was enthralled. Take a look:
