We have Snow


Emily has been sick this weekend.  I suspect she's got Bronchitis or possibly RSV again.  We shall visit the pediatrician tomorrow hopefully.  She's not been sleeping which means that her mommy (that's me!!) hasn't either.  Needless to say I forgot to prepare the coffee pot for it's timely morning brew.  As I added the coffee and water to the machine I groggily looked out the kitchen window and much to my surprise I noticed a white coating on the ground!  It had snowed in the night and was continuing to snow.  The kids were very excited and wanted to get dressed and go play outside.  We allowed them to do just that.  Emily wasn't out as long as Tyler and Shelby.  She wasn't as impressed as they were with the snow and we didn't want to have her out in the elements any longer than needed.  We got a light coating covering the ground and was so wet you couldn't make snowballs with it, but we can say it snowed and we did get a few pictures.  It continues to snow now, so I am not sure what the roads will be like in the morning.  I am not sure that this working momma can handle another day cooped up inside with the family.  I'm ready to go back to work!!!

talk to your doc to see if Emily's a candidate for Synagis. It may be too late, but it's a thought.

Sorry Emily is not feeling well. She is getting big! That picture makes her look older than she is. ;-)

We got more snow than you, but we are in Connecticut.

Hope you have a good week ahead.

I hope Emily gets well soon and that both of you can get some rest. How cool on the snow though. Kids and snow just go together.

Have a terrific day. Big hug and lotsa lovies. :)

We have snow too and I loathe it, though the grandchildren love it!

Hope Emily is feeling better soon. x

We have snow...and ice...and slush...I live in Ohio so that is normal. It is wonderful that your children love the snow.

For right now my son is too young to go out and play in it. (THANK GOD!) I would like snow if it weren't so cold. :)

I'd like to say you can keep the snow in Arkansas but I'm afraid we've got more than enough of our own up here. I keep hoping we'll get an unseasonably mild day that melts it all so I don't have to deal with it straight through until April. Sadly, it stopped being fun years and years ago!

Glad that your kids enjoyed spending some time in it, though. Kids do love their snow, don't they??

Hope your baby girl is feeling better. Love the girls in their pink and brown!! That's the color theme we tried to stick to for Megan's room. Love it. If the next one's a boy, it'll be blue and brown. :P

Hope your surving the snowday!

I'm so sorry sweet Emily isn't feeling well again. Poor thing. I hope she gets better soon.

I've been seeing all your photos of her all along and watching her grow-but in this particular picture, she looks like such a big girl!!!

I'm sorry Emily is ill again. That child (and you!) has really had it rough in her first year, hasn't she?

I can't imagine you get a lot of snow there, so the kids must have been thrilled. The adults? Not so much, right? LOL

We're up to about a foot in Aberdeenshire now - been here since the 20th Dec and we have at least another 2 weeks to go :-(

It's nice that the kids had a little time to play in the snow.

Hope Emily is feeling better now.
