I'm not gonna lie.

We're only three months into 2013,  and it's already delivered my fair share of knocks.  I'm feeling a little trodden on, to say the least.

However, despite what the universe may send my way - there are a few bright spots in my life.  Ever present, ever blinding, bright spots.

Yes.  I get a lot of Holdeezy.  He never leaves my side.
The other three are in school/work all day.
It's not favoritism, it's just presence. 

And for these four guys, I am grateful.

We got a snow day yesterday, thanks to a storm that impacted my leg more than it did anything else, really.
So we banded together to have a sledstravaganza!

Amazingly, the kids lasted about two hours in the very wet, slushy, "snow".

Kenny got tired of waiting for a sled to free up. 

A few other parents said "I'll hold you camera and take pictures of you and Holden".
Seriously, this is the best one of us.  

"Down again!"

Find the orange hat.  That's us. 

This was the perfect kind of snow day. Snowy, get-out-of-school-free kind of weather, a day of play, and then today the roads are perfectly clear and dry and the sun is out and everyone is back at school and work.
