The Girls and The Boys

Since I'm just a wee bit behind here on blogging and picture posting, I wanted to share some goodies from last week.

Even though I am a severe "planner" it was purely coincidence that Eric and Lincoln ended up in the same (looking) orange shirt. I had dressed Lincoln in the morning with his new orangy spring polo layered atop a long sleeved white shirt. Circumstance happen and he ended up coming home from the sitter's house, minus the white under shirt. I'm seeing smeared baby food along the sleeves. Nancy usually will launder any (severely) soiled clothes at her house and send the kids home in back up clothes. It just happened to be Eric's bowling night which produced his tangerine league shirt.

Judging from this picture, it looks as thought they're planning their outfits for the next day.
I could squeeze them both into little, pulpy-orange pieces! Those are MY boys!
And how about the snow which has been making an almost daily appearance? I longed to let Elaina experience her first sled ride at my expense. Let me tell you, if you want something to make you feel about 25 years older than you are, try suiting up in snowpants and layers and a ski coat and running a 30 pound child on a sled through the snow. (Pant. Pant. Pant!) Holy moly. But we did it! Elaina's first sled ride found us at the playground and laying on the ground making snow angels and sliding down the slide. I probably won't get into her semi-tantrum when I told her we had to go home. The child's tears were nearly freezing to her berry red cheeks and our noses began to run off of our faces. The almost 30 minutes was plenty for us both. It's Daddy's turn next time.
