Winter Wonderland

This morning we woke up to a real snowstorm, the first significant storm we have had this year.  Even though it is March and I am desperately craving Spring, I love days like today.

It's noon and the snow is still going strong.  Earlier this morning Greta and I hiked down to the creek and were enjoying the beauty and peacefulness of it all.

I love that my camera caught focus of the falling snow instead of her on this picture.  

Our beloved creek.  This happens every time there is any significant amount of precipitation.  When Greta saw this she said with astonishment, "The bridge is gone!!!"  Nope, still there.  Just buried.

Out of the Mouths

Josiah is quite the little wise-cracker.  He says stuff that we have no idea where he gets if from.  Currently, we are blaming it on Grandpa Thomas.  Here's an example of his latest.

Yesterday my 2 early bird boys were in my bed snuggling with me.  Aaron said something about it being a snuggle fort.  Josiah says, "It's not a snuggle fort, it's a bed, genius."

I don't know that I've ever before posted a quote on here, but I love this one so much.

C. S. Lewis:
Do not imagine that if you meet a really humble man he will be what most people call “humble” nowadays: he will not be a sort of greasy, smarmy person, who is always telling you that, of course, he is nobody.
Probably all you will think about him is that he seemed a cheerful, intelligent chap who took a real interest in what you said to him.
If you do dislike him it will be because you feel a little envious of anyone who seems to enjoy life so easily. He will not be thinking about humility: he will not be thinking about himself at all.

For Christmas my mom made Josiah the cutest blanket.  We both were a bit unsure if he would actually like being given a blanket for a gift.  But I think she hit the nail on the head when she put a few monster trucks on it.  It's super cute, my friend said it looked like it was from Pottery Barn.  I agree!!

When I was a kid my Grandma Rudy always provided us with the best homemade blankets.  I hope my kids are as sentimental about their blankets as I am mine!

Boy stuff

This was greeting me as I entered Aaron's room the other day.
