Happy Valentine's Day

Hello again! Happy Valentine's Day! First thing yesterday morning, Jai won a radio contest sponsored by our local rock station - a one-week, all expenses paid trip to Mexico! We haven't figured out any of the logistics yet, but still it's pretty darn cool. I've never been anywhere tropical!

It's just too bad we have to wait until May. Every day, it seems, we get more snow. Oh, February, why are you so long?!?

We're doing a lot of colouring to counteract all the grey.

I even did some while Griffin was napping.

Griffin's enjoying his new pencil crayons, courtesy of Grandma. They're really great because the 'lead' is so thick that he can't break them easily, and they're not round so they don't roll off the table.

Plus, it turns out that it's super fun to dump them out of the bag, and put them back in again (and again, and again, and again.)

We're almost at the point in the winter when we just try and ignore whatever crazy weather is being thrown our way, and go out anyway. Today we got together with a bunch of friends to have a play day. It was snowy and ridiculous outside, but everyone made it. We're getting tougher. Our skins are getting thicker. Soon we'll be throwing our coats off and laughing in the face of the latest blizzard. Hah! You call that snow?!?

I do believe I see the gravel driveway out my window. Now if it could just refrain from snowing again, I'd be so grateful.
