Men and Angels….

Snow that is…

Hey, I never said we were artists. Well, maybe Roman, he added the “hair”. I think he kinda looks like Elvis.

This is my snow angel with Romans on the right. He wasnt too sure about laying down in the snow.

His second attempt. He did seem to enjoy eating it though.

We had sooo much fun today! The snow is supposed to return tonight and all of us in Ridgecrest welcome it.

The whole town closed down because we here is So. Cal. don’t know how to drive in snow. Including me. The base was still open, but my amazing boss approved my leave to go play in the snow. Unfortunately he’s talking about retiring, and I’m not looking forward to it. I feel like I have a lot to learn, and he’s got a lot to teach. Like finesse. By the way, I tried to have some today when I was bummed about going into work, didn’t work out so well, but compared to two years ago, it was marvelous. I’ll just keep trying.

Decorating Confusion


I’m not sure that I’ve ever wanted to decorate for Christmas so early in the year before. I am so excited about Christmas this year, well not so much Christmas but everything that Christmas is about. I’m looking forward to family and friends getting together, the smell and taste of fresh-baked cookies, the Christmas music,the excitement and anticipation of the little ones, everything!  So for now I guess I’ll just have Fall and Christmas decorations up, at least until the day after Thanksgiving. 🙂

A Day of Play

After I got off work and picked up Roman today we went to the park, and boy is it starting to get cold. We brought the soccer balls and played for about an hour, and towards the end Roman had moco’s running down his face. That’s not the gross part though cuz all kids get runny noses; what was gross was him trying to wipe them on me and thinking it was hilarious. He gets his sense of humor from his dad apparently. Anyways, I love the picture above because it seems like Romans trying to catch the sun.

I also love this picture because he’s actually sitting still for a second. Its amazing!

Ahhh….but things wouldn’t be okay in the world if I didn’t get mean mugged for taking his picture. Still like it though. 🙂 There was a time when he couldn’t get his picture taken enough. The joy of kids.

The Art of Making Fog

Wow was there some crazy weather today! The itty bitty hail was crazy, and with that finally came the cold weather. It’s like we skipped fall and went directly to winter. And when it’s cold outside it’s super easy to make fog on windows. We went to my parents house today to see Honey and Grandpa and while we were playing, Roman figured out how to make fog. He hasn’t quite perfected his technique, but at least I got this picture to chronicle his progress… Bahahahaha! Love it!
