Anyway, I'll check in a day or so and if they're still not there, I will try to fix them. In the meantime, here are a bunch more.
Did I mention it's been snowy here? :-)
Well, there's never been enough snow at once that lingers long enough for Sean to have a snow fort...until this year.
Sean is in the lookout hole (the moonroof?!?) - he's not touching the ground inside, by the way. I think he's standing on Dad or something - Chip is hanging out the back entrance (no jokes, please), and the Nerf gun guards the front entrance you saw above. Funny story about that gun. I just about broke my nose on it when I tried to help dig some of the snow out. That was the end of Mom's helpful attitude. But it does seem to keep out the neighbors!
The smile I so rarely see anymore. I'm glad he's so excited by the fort. He and Dad spend scads of time out there (and I'm glad I don't have to...much, anyway)
Hardly Iwo Gima, but Sean insisted on having the flag on top, so people would know it was friendly fire, I imagine I guess if the gun fails, the car's snow scraper will do the trick at close range. I hope it's back in the car now, in case we get dumped on with white stuff while we're out and about.

Here are the pics:
after the Santa, before the chaos
is she biting it or opening it?!?
Grampa with the 2 babies.
Testing out the new thumb war ring...it appears that Gramps has the upper hand (pun intended)
Sophie and Gramma Marcia in NY. I don't have the opening presents pics...I think we used Gramma's camera. But we had fun there, too. Miss her. Maybe we'll get to go back for Easter.
So, here are some more fun pics. Hope you enjoy!
Phone call from Grandma M:
I think he's reading her a book?!?
Sophie looks very impressed.
Now she's more interested.
Gramma - when are you going to talk to ME?!?
Unfortunately Gramma knows all to well that she has to do all of the talking in THAT conversation. Sophie will babble on and on until you give her a phone. Then she just likes to listen. And of late, shrug her shoulders.
Life is still busy here. But the real news is all of this SNOW. It's all we're talking about around here, practically. It's been a record season, with over 90" or something close to that already, and we still have a good month of potential snowfall. It somehow has lost its luster as something wonderful to play in over the years...I guess the snow shoveling and driving (admittedly mostly RIDING this year) I have to do in it now...
But at least my kids are enjoying it!:
You can only see the small piles here. On either side of the driveway, they're over my 5'5" head!
I swear that is not a snowball!!! It was snowing so much, a fortuitous flake landed right on the lens!
(note the pileup of snow on top of the car that was clean just the day before when Sean and dad went bowling)
