Is it just me, or is everyone else's kids little pyromaniacs? Or I guess maybe they were just trying to warm up by the fire.

Well, in case you didn't hear, we've been having what some have been calling "Icemaggedon" for the past 5-6 days. We usually get a little ice and/or snow around here a couple times a year, and every now and again school gets cancelled for maybe a day. Well, we had Friday and Monday off, as well as a late start Tuesday. Let's just say this momma was ready for the kids to get back into a routine AT school!
Since we live 25 minutes from school, we carpool with a few families. It is so nice to only have to make the drive once a day. The craziness of 5-6 kids in the car never gets less crazy. Here is how these crazies felt after their first day back after the ice-days (and Crew and our pre-schooler friend weren't even in the car! this was a "quiet" ride):

We got our tree on Monday before my sickness set in, so we just go around to decorating it today. The kids always have a blast hanging ornaments. I'm a fan of letting the kids hang ornaments where they wish. I prefer the mis-match tree rather than the whole matchy match tree.
(I know it's suppose to be just 1 photo a day, but how could I choose just 1???)

We are having unseasonably cold weather here in Fort Worth this weekend. We had sleet/rain/ice all afternoon, evening, and night last night, so we woke up to about 3 inches of ice on the ground. The boys thought it was snow, so they were disappointed that there would be no snow ball fights or snowman building. But, when we busted out the sleds, they were happy.
Most people know that I do NOT like cold weather. To me, there's nothing to like about it, especially when it there's ice involved. Lots of wet clothes, wet floors, cold hands/feet. I will admit, that watching them sled was fun. They're loving it.
Ok, that was fun. Can we move on to Spring now?
