The Snow Came Over

October 31, 2010 in Blakeisms, Winter Activities - 4 Comments

We were greeted home from our vacation with a whole slew of snow. I forgot how exciting it is in a child’s eyes to receive the first snowfall of the year. When I saw that cold white stuff on the ground, all I wanted to do was curl up by the fireplace…

This is LA

We filled our days (as much as possible around naps) with other activities besides Disneyland while we were in California. Our sister Tricia and her husband Jacob have just gotten settled into their apartment in LA. We spent a few days visiting with them before our friends came into town….

I love this boy. He says the funniest things. I want to remember these moments of innocence and curiosity when he is talking back to me someday. Troy’s mom compiled a book of Troyisms throughout his childhood and we have so much fun going back and reading the things he…
