The Beginnings of Warm

One week ago, we had this:

Six inches of wet, heavy snow.  Though it was beautiful, it was not really all that welcome.

Today, this is what my front yard looks like.  Hooray.  I'm ready for spring (notice the big sticks still in the ground to mark the driveway when we get lots of snow though...).

It was still pretty cold today, and we still have some snow in our shady backyard, but I think it's going to warm up this weekend.

I'm not getting my hopes up that spring is here just yet.  It's not unlikely that we'll have another snow.  But I am loving the beginnings of warm, with longer days and more sunshine.  I'm hoping that winter will be largely behind us by the time Baby Sis arrives.  These girls are ready to start getting outside again.

The "Bumblebee Hat" 

And I'm a little nervous that I will never get out of the house again once Baby arrives, so I'm thinking that having somewhat warmer weather will at least help in my quest to not be stuck in my house forevermore.

The girls are excited to plant vegetables and flowers in the yard with their Daddy.  I can't wait to watch them play together outside now that Lass is bigger.  I love this time of year.  So much to look forward to.

38 weeks and Baby Sis is still facing the right direction.  We're getting so excited to meet her soon!

  1. Boy, I agree... forecaster says it's going to be 71 degrees this week and I can't wait! I can't wait for Little Sis either! I hope you can get a little rest, and enjoy some warmth and sunshine before she arrives. (BTW, I have a name guess...) Now I just need to go on the hunt for another shirt to match these two! HA
    Love you all!
