Tamara (http://www.carepages.com/carepages/ConnerLemus) emailed me a little bit ago; apparently, our kiddos were feeding about the same time of night, and she wrote this:
I just wanted to let you know.....IT'S SNOWING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
It is beautiful. I got up to warm a bottle, and happened to glance outside the window by the sink in the kitchen. Everything is white and beautiful. I gave conner his bottle, and put on my shoes and grabbed the camera.
It is snowing big, soft, white flakes, and it is beautiful!! I took load of pics, which I'll post on his carepage tomorrow. I even put a paper plate outside to catch some for alyssa. I'll get up in a few hours and put it in the freezer. I ALMOST woke her, but figured that would be irresponsible parenting, since she does go to school tomorrow. If I had, I would have had to do a Not Me Monday, also.
And Chona (Mal's nurse tonight) gave me a similar story, and said that people are outside throwing mini-snowballs at each other. So I did what any responsible parent would do. I woke up Hannah and sent her outside to see what it looks like outside the hospital, and called John so he could wake up the other kids. He's no more responsible than I am (meaning he's WAY better at being impulsive, making him a great dad!), so the next thing I know, I'm getting a call from Hannah (outside), letting me know Daddy and the other kids are on their way to the hospital so they can go outside and have a snowball fight and make snow angels. They are at an all-night pharmacy, buying batteries for the camera!
See why I love him? He has never quite lost that child inside, and the kids are better off for that.
Now he'd better get them back into bed before we have more kiddoes with pneumonia!! Chona says we'll have to open a suite!
