Splendid Snow Snapshots

Beautiful waves in the snow from the wind.

A huge snow bank at the high school.  Once they plow the
parking lot they shove all the snow into this huge embankment that
becomes a monster mountain.  It was Chuck's idea to go there to play
King of the Mountain.

My rocking chair I haven't sat on in 4 months.

Beautiful contrast of colors.  I love that there is still so
much green during the winter.

Ninja having a blast digging through the snow.

The snow is literally past my knees - and this was before
the blizzard that dumped another 10 inches on us.

It was much easier for them to climb this tree that is normally
too far off the ground without the snow.

What it looked like through our family room window the morning after the storm.

I love the sun - in any form I can get it!

Belated Valentine's

You know how we roll around here.  Valentine's Day is for our homemade date at the Ghoti Diner, then the following weekend we celebrate by going out - but not together.  Chuck has taken Chloe to the Daddy/Daughter Dance for 4 years now.  This is the highlight of each year for her.  I get to out with two handsome dudes and do dude stuff.  Always a highlight for me.  Thankfully, this year did not include any mirrors
The princess ready to go to the ball.  

The princess and her escort.  When they got to the
venue and got their name tags, Chuck's tag said "Chucky".
He thought it was a joke I played on him since I registered
him for the event.  No, I totally wouldn't do that, but we all
got a good laugh about it!

This is actual height.  I'm shrinking daily. 

We're actually eating food on a date and enjoying it!

Smashburger and boys - what a good combo!

We risked the icy roads and post blizzard conditions to go to our favorite (cheap) theater in Minneapolis to watch "Saving Mr. Banks".  So fun!  I tried to cut Gavin out of the picture, but he would have none of that!
