On Sunday we went to Ben Lomond again and this time the weather was perfect and there was SNOW!
SNOW FIGHT! Ethan caught in the cross fire. Jamie has my pink rubber gloves on..ROFL! Our snowman. Snowballs. Big snowballs. Lets get daddy You keep him busy Ethan, I'll get him from behind.. Her first taste of snow. *heart*
Last night it got down to -4C (around 25F for those on the otherside). Half of our suburb woke to no water because the water had frozen in the mains. We got water back around 11am.
We also ended up with burst pipes along one side of the house which dh spent the day replacing. We think they are about 50 years old, so we should probably be thankful that they have lasted this long..lol Ahh the joys of an old house.
and where there is water to play in.. there will always be a little boy
This afternoon we took a drive up the mountain to see if there was any snow about. No snow, just lots of mud, rain and mist! So we took a drive down a track.. found a little hut and stopped for a hot drink and a little food. Depsite having coats and hats Emma and Ethan were still cold so we warmed them up with some extra clothing.. lol (and that is not smoke haze in this shot.. its FOG and a point and shoot camera..lol!)
And how hard is it to get all of us in a shot at the same time..... (I can't beleive I am even posting this.. ughh!)
and in reference to the title of this blog... as we were packing up and getting ready to leave, there was this loud crack and just to the side of us this WHOLE tree just fell down!!!
So when a tree falls in the forest does anybody hear?? You bet you do and it scares the crap out of ya!!
This is the kitchen that daddy and I made her for her birthday. I loved her reaction when she first saw it. She was so excited to be having her very own "happy birthday" and later in the day we had some cake She was far more interested in the tea set on the cake than the cake its self..lol Happy 3rd Birthday my sweet baby girl.
