Happy St. Patty's Day!

I am losing count of how many weeks in a row we have outside - snow pictures!  On Monday, we had a two hour delay of school... thank goodness it wasn't another whole snow day!  Once we got home for the day, we played outside.  Daddy built them a snow fort.  They called it a 'snow fence' and 'house'.




 Ashton was pretty proud of his snowball...
 Both LOVE to eat the snow...
 I read somewhere that many times as kids look back on their pictures, they don't have many pictures of them with mom, because mom is always the one taking the pictures.  Many mother's don't want to see themselves in pictures... but when the boys look back on our memories, I want to be present and have them see me sharing the great times with them.  *Note to self - get better at handing off the camera and jumping into some pictures!


 What the boys typically look like when we get home from Bonnie's.  On the couch, with their animals, having a fruit snack and watching...

MICKEY MOUSE!  This is their new favorite.  Thankfully it is available 'On Demand' with Charter Cable, so we can cue it up anytime ;)
 CHEESE FACE ALERT!  When do the cheese face pictures stop?  For their two year old pictures, the boys are pretty straight faced because when we tell them to smile, this is what we get...


 Friday night, we had Megan and Debbie over to celebrate MEGAN'S BIRTHDAY! Good thing she had two little friends to help blow out the candles and sing Happy Bert-Day. 
 The cake was yummy!
 On Saturday, Gramma and Grampa came to visit and stayed the night.  Ashton had fin showing Gramma how good he is at ALL of his puzzles.  He would sit all day and put puzzles together!
 I put Daddy and Grampa to work hanging the Boys' names above their beds.  If there is a job to be done, Aiden isn't too far behind!  Hammer too... Hammer too... Hammer too...

 Popcorn time!!! Even Izzie gets ready for her popcorn time.  Spirit (Horsey Movie) is a recent favorite.
 The boys DO NOT go far without their animals.  Nana started with the animals at Bonnie's that the boys would talk about and I think she makes it her mission to bring a new one each time she sees the boys.  Grampa and Gramma also now enjoy finding one's they don't have yet... they got the water buffalo this weekend along with a beaver, a peacock, an antelope, a bunny, and a Clydesdale.  Am I missing any?!?!  Horsie's are their favorite right now along with any that have a "mommy and a baby".  The animals even 'watch; them watch supper...



 Cheese Face again...


 Happy St. Patrick's Day.  Even though we don't have a bit of Irish in our blood, the boys were decked out in Green most of the weekend... (They even have their shirts for next year already - Thanks Aunt Debbie!
 Aiden is still Cheesing it...
Adam and I are off to Mexico with some friends.  We are very fortunate to have Nana staying with the boys while we are gone!  We will miss the boys but will also enjoy the sun, rest and relaxation as this will probably be our last trip we take without the boys.
With more snow in the forecast, it may feel like we will never have Spring.  Maybe this is the last week of snow-fun pictures?!?!
