Winter Wonderland

Oh the weather outside is frightful, but the fire (even if it is only a fake, natural gas fireplace) is so delightful, and since we've no place to go, let it snow, let it snow, LET IT SNOW!

Holy cow are we having some crazy weather in Portland. The last seven days (Yes, SEVEN) have been snowy and cold and windy. And yes, I hear you North Dakota people, but I'm telling you, this is craziness. We have three and a half inches on the ground right now and they are saying to expect another 3-6 inches over the next 12 hours. Its light, fluffy, powdery snow too. Not the normal big sloppy, soggy flakes we're used to. No snowball fights here. The snow won't even stick together.

We took Conor out in it for a walk last weekend and frankly, he wasn't too impressed. I had fun making a snow angel though. Enjoy the snowy baby pictures. Hope you are staying warm and dry wherever you are today. I'm gonna go make some eggnog. Yum, everyone loves a good cup o' nog.

*UPDATE* My nog (I love saying nog. Try it. NOG) is delish. Maybe a leetle too much brandy. At least we will be warm tongith. I mean tonight. :)

Tucker. Loves to frolick.

Ok, turns out the pictures of Conor in the snow are on Kristen's camera so until I get them from her, here is Conor in his Hugh Hefner jammies. How cute is he?
Our street last Sunday.
Our back yard and shed (no, that is not our house) last Sunday afternoon.

Thomas loves Conor's jammies. He has a Hugh Heffner robe and he looks like a real playboy in it. I wish I was there to give him smooches. As for the weather, Hahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha!! It is currently -18f with a 40mph wind which makes it feel like -48f. But at least it has been brillantly sunny all day. Crazy, but we love it. You guys have to come and visit. :)

a) only a crazy person would live in NoDak in the winter and;
b) it appears my daughter had a bit too much of her 'nog' last nigth, (I mean night)
Conor is his jammies is just too darn cute. Of course, every Hugh Heffner wannabe longs to look 'cute', right?
