finally- we got snow! i must have spent a few hours just standing by our sliding glass door under the heating vent watching it snow yesterday. it was not a lot, but enough to lay a little white blanket over everything. its so pretty! it makes the cold worth it when there is snow. virginian's freak out when it snows though- schools shut down, government workers don't have to go to work, and people drive 10 miles per hour. it didn't snow enough for luke to have the day off, but he did see two accidents just in the time that he was driving home from church yesterday. luke taught velzy how to draw on the window using your breath to make it foggy, later in the night she was just slobbering on the door and playing with the spit she left behind, nasty!
we attempted to take a family portrait...attempted is the opportune word there.
oh, and i got to ditch church on account of a sick kid. velzy threw up five times saturday night, don't worry i was only in her path of destruction for a few of them. poor kid, i think she has some sort of stomach bug or something, she gets cranky after she eats so i think that her tummy is having some problems. once again, being a parent is a constant state of confusion when your kid can't talk. she was so funny sitting with her "throw-up bowl" but when i got the camera out she didn't want it in her lap anymore.
anyways, off to make a menu for the week and get the house cleaned before the little one wakes up from her nap.
