Will Not Vanish Without a Fight


Anyone tired of snow pictures of my kids yet?

February refused to go out without a fight. It turned out to be the longest February of my life. With the addition of Friday's little storm, Ohio had record breaking amounts of snowfall.

The kids and I got up on Saturday morning for what I hope to be the last snow play day of the season. (Wishful thinking, right?) After a little shoveling...and I only mean a little because my kind neighbor came over with his snow blower shortly after I started shoveling...we decided to stray from the usual snowman and build a snow sofa. Then Parker insisted on adding a television, because, let's face it, what good is a couch without a TV. Seriously? Isn't that what couches are for? And after a little lounging on the couch, we included an ottoman for added comfort.

Gray and Reid wussed out before the final product and, once again, I only have snow pictures of Parker. He's a die hard.

Who could possibly get tired of Parker pictures?

What a great idea. We really haven't gotten enough snow this year to do fun stuff like that.

Sweet couch!!! I agree with Parker...there has to be a t.v.

I hope it starts to warm up for you! March should never be cold. (Of course, it snowed once on Rich's birthday here... at the END of March.)

So creative! Love the snow couch and tv.

I'm sorry it's been such a long and cold winter for you guys. That must get real old real quick. Here's to hoping the sun melts a bit of that snow for you soon!

those are some awesome furniture. One day we will get out and actually enjoy the snow. Not my favorite thing to do.

I thought Spencer was the one who liked to play in the snow. Where was he? Very creative to build a new living room outside.

So cute. I love that little snowy living room.
