I HAD to have garlic popcorn for breakfast this morning... I guess that makes it official. I'm pregnant!

Birthday Boy and his French Fries

There are two things that Obadiah loves. French Fries and Cuckoo Clocks.

If you walk up and ask him what he wants for his birthday he will tell you "French Fries!"


 His favorite fries are from a hamburger place called Five Guys. We took him there last night and it was hilarious watching him scarf down the fries.... and this was AFTER eating a whole hamburger patty.

Obadiah is 2 years old today. And you can be sure we're having French Fries.

As I mentioned before, we don't get snow much. So the fact that today is day 5  that we have piles of white slush on the ground. Although as warm as it is today, I think they will be gone by this evening.

It sure was fun while it lasted though!

On Tuesday we took the kids outside to play in the snow and I really wanted to try sledding down our big hill.

Sadly, we don't own a sled so William found a trashcan lid and I tried a card board box. The lid worked a lot better than the box.

We took turn taking the kids down while balancing on the lid. It was our own fun version of the two man luge.

Here's a picture of the kids with my fallen apart box. It was good for about two runs, then it fell apart.

Obi had so much fun sledding. He went down one time by him self....

He laughed the whole way down but then after that run he wanted some one to take him down.

At the end of every run he'd say "again! Again!"

I didn't get very many pictures or any videos because we were all having so much fun going down the hill super fast.

I ran into a tree a couple of times before we figured out where the best sledding path would be. But it was so much fun.

Our little Rosie liked sledding too. But not as much as Obi. She went down once with me and once with Nana and once with Daddy and then she was happy just watching and playing with the ice on the trees.

She's such a sweet little ice princess.

So that was our first time sledding in Middle Tennessee.
Hopefully we get more snow next year so we can do it again.

I'll definitely have to buy a sled though.

 It is NOT very often that we get snow. Especially this year. And if we do get snow it never sticks around for more than a couple hours.

But this week, now that it's March, we did get snow and it stuck around for not one but two days!!

First it rained. Then it sleeted. Then the temperature dropped below freezing. Then it snowed.

Needless to say, our roads are an icy mess so no one is going any where and most places are closed.

But it also means lots of fun playing in the snow.
  Aren't they the cutest little snow bunnies that you've ever seen?!

Rosie saw someone make a snow angel on one of her shows. She was very excited to make one for your self.

Then we all made one...

 All the trees are completely encased in ice. It so crazy and so lovely.

William made sure all the goats had plenty to eat and enough room to hide out in the barn.

They were a little freaked out because when they tried to walk around in the yard they kept slipping.

I'm not going to lie. It was kind of funny.

Mom is a good goat mama and comforted every one that was freaked out. They felt better after getting some love.

Rosie made her first snow ball!

Obi went all over the yard checking out all the snow and ice.

The daffodils had just started to come up (since it is the first week of March). I hope this doesn't kill them. They are my favorite part of Spring.

Nana and Obi comfort the dog who was rather cold and couldn't figure out why we were all outside for so long. 

Nana and the kids played on the slide for a little bit... but as you can see... Obi was a little cold, hungry and tired and it was about time to go in for some hot chocolate.

But first William helped Rosie build a snow man.

She was very proud of her snow man. She named him Coldy.
I hope you all are staying warm and dry where ever you are. And I hope you're enjoying these last few weeks of Winter. 
I am optimistic that Spring is just around the corner.

Morning "Mine"

Here are a couple videos we recorded first thing in the morning while we were still cuddling and playing.
 Obi has taken to saying "Mine" a lot lately. It means more than ownership though. He says it when he wants something or when he wants to give something or if he wants to know if something is his... or just if he isn't getting his way.
 I'm trying to correct him when he says it but I really do think it's the cutest thing ever. He says it all in his nose and it just sounds so stinking cute.

This first video is just of Obi, but if you turn up your sound and listen you can hear Rosie telling him a story. I love listening to them talk to each other. They have the cutest conversations.


 In this video they thought I was talking a picture. Obi says "mine" about the Pooh Bear and Rosie is trying to let you Dancing Bear see the camera.  I love my morning cuddles with these babies more than anything in the world.

Park day

It's been very cold here lately. But we haven't had any snow, which is very sad. 
South of us has had lots of snow, but we've just been cold. Mostly in the 20s and low 30s. 

Last week we did have a sunny warm day so we went to the park to play.

Rosie got this doll and this matching outfit for Christmas. Isn't she beautiful?

Keeping Warm

I just wanted to share this picture of post Christmas playing. It's very very cold outside and Obi and Rosie are finding all sorts of ways to play together.
This is one of their favorite Christmas gifts from their Grandparents. They drove all around the kitchen and living room like this.

Snow in middle Tennessee

The kids woke up to "snow" today. 
Ok. I know this isn't really snow to a lot of you out there but to us the flurries were amazing. 
The day time temp held at 26F today and has dropped to 23F this evening. Again, I know that's not cold for alot of you out there. But for us it's pretty dang cold.

Obadiah got bundled up to help with the goats today. He's wearing Rosie's winter things from last year. 

Stay warm everyone. I know there are some pretty crazy wind and snow stores out there this week. I think I'll go make some mulled wine to help keep warm. 

Happy 9th Day of Christmas!
