Snow Snow Snow

I figure if I don't jump right in then I'll never do it. Everything has been so stressful lately with house/kids/family/internet it was just easier to not even worry about getting online. When I was online I'd get kicked off every 2 minutes and I just couldn't deal with it anymore.

David's hours at work have been unbelievable. They've been long and never ending. I'm thankful he has a job and is able to work yet it's stressful at the same time. Then to add to it when he finally gets off of work and the kids are heading to bed he calls and he's on the way to a meeting. That's when I feel like I'm at ground zero all over again. It hits me where we are and how much I despise being here. It adds to the frustration and the anger takes over. I think how it would be nice to get out and find an al anon group that would be good for me yet there is no time. He hasn't been getting home until 930 at night and of course by that time all of the meetings are over. So all in all it's just been stressful.

I have lots and lots of blogs to catch up on and I figure I should stop putting it off and just jump back in. I'll be slowly making my way around :) and trying to get back into blogging at the same time. I've come to realize that it's hard to take things one day at a time. Hard to sit back and just let things happen. I'm horrible at that! I've always been one to want to know exactly what and when something is going to happen. This new way of living is something I haven't figured out yet.

While I was gone we got snow FINALLY! Caleb was obsessed with wanting to build a snowman. Lucas and Jacob decided they wanted to go to their grandparents house instead so they weren't here. We headed out in the morning for Allie and Caleb to play for a while. After busting my own butt on the ice the kids had a blast on the sled- well Caleb had a blast on the sled. Allie only stayed on for a couple of minutes and then she was happier walking along.

We don't get this weather very much so I didn't have a heavy for Allie. She had to wear Caleb's old Pooh jacket from last year. At least she had pink in her hat :)


David had to get in on the fun too!! Caleb wasn't happy to be sharing his sled.


After the sled David and Caleb decided to build Frosty. Amazingly the snow rolled right up off the grass so he was fairly easy to make but it wasn't my knees out there soaking wet either :) I was too busy keeping Allie off the street! When he was finally done we couldn't find buttons that would stick so David went all redneck on me with the spray paint. Lord I can't take him anywhere! All in all Caleb had a BLAST!!!!!! and Allie wasn't happy when it was time to come inside so though she wouldn't really play and it took her 45 minutes to actually put her feet in the snow I think deep down she had a fabulous time!

Oh how I've missed your photos!! I think Alli has changed again and grown! Oh my... it feels good to catch up with you. I'm sorry this path is continuing to be such a difficult one for you! But those sweet faces have to make it all worth it!

Your snow pictures look like so much fun! And lucky you...do you know we stopped at probably 20 stores between Atlanta and Ashevill on our vacation and everyone was sold out of sleds!
