It's a Brand New Day

Ahhh, what a fresh perspective a good night's sleep and a cup of coffee -w/o Bailey's :0( - can give a girl.

We're having a nice time, save for the occassional altercation between children, which also results in the occassional passive-aggressive altercation between the children's parents. Well, really between my sister-in-law and either my sister or me. That's another story for another time. I think we'll be able to make it the next few days without bitch slapping her. I. HOPE. There will just be a lot of dirty looks being exchanged by my sister and I. Not directed at each other, of course. We're getting along like peaches and cream. Like Root Beer and Vanilla Ice Cream. Like Rum & Coke.

We're off to the snow today. Not sure if it's a good idea, being as Dylan woke up this morning (at 2am) with a hacking cough, but I'll be damned if we miss our opportunity for snow. Plus, we spent a gazillion dollars on warm clothing at Target, so we need to put them to good use. At least once.

We spent yesterday at the Train Museum downtown. Dylan and his cousin Will thought it was pretty FREAKIN awesome. So did the bigger boys.

Zach was there, but he was asleep in the stroller, so he didn't make it into any pictures. Until he woke up, at which point he remained in the stroller, but I did get a picture of him. That way, when he's 10 and feeling left out of life, I can prove to him that even though he's the younger brother, he really did join us on family outings. Until today, when we'll leave him behind for our trip to the mountains. We don't need an infant weighing us down as we tromp through the snow. Right? Babies ruin everything don't have much fun in the snow.

As soon as we got in the car, the boys fell asleep. It was perfect. Notice the train tracks on his lap? As if there won't be enough Thomas crap under the tree, we bought MORE at the gift shop. We're single handedly keeping RC2 Corp. in business this year.

All right. I'm off to shower and get dressed up real warm for the snow. I'm a wussy and yesterday it was 1 degree in South Lake Tahoe. We're not going that far up into the mountains but I'm pretty sure it's going to be DAMN cold.

The pictures are very Norman Rockwell which is so cool. I love the strike-out about the baby...The same was in my head when we left him at 6 months to be doted on by grandma 24 hours a day for a week when the rest of us went to the beach. Babies don't like snow, sand....
