Snow, Steroids & Maddison

Snow, Snow & More Snow:
Last Tuesday evening into Wednesday we had our second 'huge' snow storm of the year and dumped another foot leaving us with a total of 25 inches. A few things we'd like to remember about the January snow:

  • The snow is taller then the kids
  • Only the tip of our mailbox is showing
  • We need a roof rake
  • This was our first experience shoveling the roof
  • We literally had to dig ourselves out of our house because the snow drifts wouldn't let us open our doors
  • Our dog, Ranger, found some new and interesting places to go to the bathroom
  • Parking lots are no longer parking lots their just mounds of snow

This winter we're especially thankful we landed in a great neighborhood. Through all the storms everyone has pitched in and helped one another out. We can officially say we're spoiled because we're surrounded by supportive people and have had much help digging out. Thank you to all of you .. we'd still be digging out if it wasn't for you all.

In addition to surviving the latest snow dump we also survived another steroid week. This one brought on some new challenges. It seems as though a day or two after the procedure which is also the first two days of steroid Colin's not that interested in food and makes up for it later in the week. He complained of belly aches and leg pains.

Over the last week Maddie has shown A LOT of interest in the potty and has actually gone pee on it a couple of times and as Colin would say even did 'big potties'. Gigi had to make an emergency run to get Maddie some 'big boy undies' in Colin's words. She's growing up way too quick and keeps us on our toes. She's keeping to the princess name because it never fails .. after we get her suited up to go out in the snow she screams as soon as her feet touch the snow. It's actually pretty humorous.
