things i can count on: boys will be boys and a dog will have dinner

My spouse left the kids in the back yard while he went to shovel the front walk. When he returned, D. was digging and shovelling looking focused and determined. Nine year old S. was nowhere to be seen.

Turns out he was completely buried in snow.

I am choosing not to be disturbed by this (although D. did look like he was really enjoying himself) and instead, to be pleased that they were playing together without fighting.

This is another rare sighting of my children playing together.

And this is where it all falls apart.

And this? It's a picture of my dog having his Christmas dinner with all the trimmings. Except cranberry sauce. Because that would be excessive.

I have been wanting to tell you since I started reading your blog many months ago... You look just like Jessica Lang! Has anyone else ever told you that. She is a beautiful person inside and out, and so my dear are YOU!!!

Cranbury sauce is not excessive--however a glass of merlot would be! (LOL) Wishing you a Happy, Healthy and Prosperous New Year!

Clearly he is missing that cranberry sauce, too.

One of the many reasons why I long for a sibling for Amara -- seeing your two boys sharing and playing *together* is enough to warm any mom's heart!
