Jack and Fluffy

He’s been up since 3 a.m. Yes. THREE A.M.

Dave, Jack, and the tower

And he’s been very busy.

It snowed yesterday and school was cancelled. It was also cancelled today, but today was bitterly cold and so we played Just Dance and Exploding Kittens. Yesterday, however, it was only just cold enough to snow and so we played in that snow. And here are what about five seconds of that fun looked like.

I want to take more photos. For years, I’d taken a photo of each of the kids every day. This is no longer true. My hard drive took a slew of them along to its grave when it died last year, anyway. Still, I love capturing things with my camera and I’d like to get back to doing it every day. Or most days.

It was cold this morning and everything was covered in frost. I love to look at frost close up – those tiny spikes of ice jutting out, like crystals we made in science class or the gunk you find on a Biore Pore Cleansing Strip after you rip it off your nose. It’s awe-inspiring.

I’m out of practice, but I’ve got to work with what I have, where I am, right? It’s not awe-inspiring. It’s weeds. And the point is, I took some photos.

More weeds

Even more weeds, with frost!

“It’s snowing on the van!”

“Mom! It’s snowing on Daddy’s car!”

“It’s snowing on the play set!”

She had to go out and play in it!

A cold Bee

She lasted about as long as it took me to make her hot cocoa.

This is milk’s necklace.

Milk's Necklace

It shall not be disposed of so long as the gallon jug is in use.
