Since we actually had winter this year it feels like a definite spring is coming! I love the snow and slowness of winter but I enjoy it largely because of the promise of springtime. Last week I bought some pansies, which are Philip's favorite, and got them planted near the entrance of the house. I forgot that the wreath on the front door that says, "Let It Snow" probably should come down.
Though I'm very thankful that none of my children had colds this year,
(save Stephen who sniffles almost constantly from allergies and it's
hard to know if it's cold sniffles or allergy sniffles) - we didn't miss
the most recent Influenza A outbreak and so very high fevers and all
sorts of other unpleasantness are happening in this household.
Once they recuperate, they're back in same old form!
This is Stephen's "T-Rex look" with the two claws on each arm.
