The Dashingly Handsome Sidekick had a birthday yesterday.
We celebrated with Mexican food, the entire family, a vanilla raspberry cake, and a very large sombrero.
(Krista V. - please note my son's Kellen Moore jersey. We got it at football camp last summer. And it's signed. Go ahead and drool.)
This week has just been weird. Tuesday and Wednesday we had snow delays and today they cancelled school all together. I'm not complaining. I love having my family home. But after almost a full no-school week for Thanksgiving (thanks to snow and delays and no snow tires) and another off-week this week, the kids are sliding into vacation mode. They want to sleep in and go to bed late. There's no schedule to speak of. (No writing to speak of, either.) They're wild with cabin fever.
And my posts on this blog have been super lame.
The snow is melting. Maybe some warmer weather will zap some life back into this tired old brain of mine.
I can't promise, though. My two older girls are performing in the Nutcracker ballet next week, so even if the snow melts and school starts up again, I'm sure my brain will be just as tired. (But my girls will be beautiful and graceful; I'm so proud of them.)
In the meantime, however, Happy Birthday DHS!
I'll leave you with a photo of our snow-covered valley and hoarfrost encrusted trees.
And our cute little snowman (created on the first snow day, when snow was still a novelty).
