About Us

There are four of Them: three girls and one boy, little stair-steps all. There are two of Us: best friends, co-parents and truly in love. The Six of us have epic adventures full of laughter and love, occasionally containing tears, but always together.

White Stuff!

We woke up this morning and there was white stuff everywhere!  We had been sort of aware that inclement weather was potentially on the way, but here we have learned to ignore whatever the weather predictions are and just be prepared.  Everyone was incredibly excited to see snow and the plans to go out and play in it began as soon as they were awake. 

All lined up, raring to go and disturb all that untouched frozen tundra!

I have to admit, it is so incredibly nice to be able to help them all get dressed and then send them outside to play!  No one needs active supervision!  They can entertain themselves!  And get us if they need help!  (One downside of the no adults having to go outside, is a lack of action shots.  I'll have to remember that next time.)

It didn't take long for the SuperFour to finish outside.  It never got above freezing, although we did see sunshine the whole day.  Actually, one member would have stayed out longer if he could have convinced other members to stay with him.  Can you guess who wanted to stay out?  I'll give you four guesses and the first three don't count.  He was rather bummed out that no one wanted to stay out with him, but he wasn't willing to stay out by himself. 

Later in the day, after lunch and play and games and starting cinnamon roll dough, I wanted to go on a walk.  I do enjoy the snow and I definitely needed to go outside after having been cooped up all day.  When I told everyone to get ready, the three girls all, separately, came to me to a)complain and b)inform me of multiple reasons why they didn't want to go on a walk.  I calmly ignored the whining and told them to get ready.  Everyone bundled and off we went. 

It was lovely.  And the moment we stepped outside the Big Three were involved in some sort of running, slipping on the (very) icy road and deep in playing having fun.  Noodle stayed back with Dadam and I, and after we convinced her to just hold our hands, we had a nice walk on a snowy lane.
