Last weekend was beautiful, so we played outside.   I can’t wait for the summer.  The boys are at the age where I can let them run loose in the back yard.  It’s SO nice!34 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 2013 1914

And since last Sunday, we’ve been sick.  Tuck has had it the worst by far.  He has been running a super high fever (the highest I checked was 103.7) and just laying on the couch for 3 1/2 days.  He broke out in a rash today, I’m hoping that is going to mark the end of the virus (it did last time), he’s showing improvement this afternoon.


His brothers and I have been sick as well; but have all gathered around to take care of him.  They’ve all been bringing him toys, even when he doesn’t want them, and trying to force him to drink.  It’s so sweet.

This is my first post using Live Writer.  It’s supposed to help in composing the actual post since it’s more user friendly than the blogger composition tool bar.  For example, after I add my pictures, I can click a button and add a watermark to my pictures… pretty cool, huh?  It also can add other cool features to pictures, like the rounded corners effect, other borders, or even a Polaroid border!  Plus, it’s free. 
Now to Valentine’s Day.  I didn’t get a picture of Taylor making a picture, but he did at school.  And it’s on the fridge.  I need to get a picture of it.  But for now, here are the one’s already uploaded.

We had so much fun playing in the snow today.  It's the first time I can remember that it snowed all day long.  It started about 8:30am and continued until dark.  It's rare for it to snow here, but when it does, it's usually one of those things where we wake up and there is snow and we have to hurry out and play in it because by noon it will be gone.  But not today.  Taylor played in it off and on all day.  The boys went out once.  They were not to sure at first.  They wanted to stay on the sidewalk.  But when they saw that they could run in it and it didn't hurt, they had so much fun and threw such a fit when we had to come in.  Luckily, it was snack time and some milk and cookies calmed the savage beasts pretty quickly.  They wore some fleece footed pajamas (with shoes on over the footies), a sweat shirt, some sweat pants, and a jacket with 2 hats.  No mittens.  They wouldn't go for mittens/socks over the hands!  Regardless, they didn't mind the cold and neither did Wade or I.  We loved watching them all so excited and having so much fun.  

I'm so glad Wade came home this weekend!!

The 'snow family pic' isn't great as they wanted no part of us holding them, but we're all 6 in there!   
Yes, snow 2 years in a row!!
