Just as MomE came out of a doozy of a head cold, Caleb began the awfulness of stomach bug symptoms. He missed two days of school...and was a very snuggly, sweet boy.

MomE pushed lots of liquids...lots...and prayed ALOT...that the rest of us would be spared.

And so far, it seems that God has been merciful.
It's a normal Saturday morning around here...Caleb and DadE are Minecrafting together saying hilarious things like, "Wait up!  A cow fell in front of me!"  Or..."Stop taking my chickens"  Or..."Who burned down the forest!?"  Hilarious!   I have no idea what's going on and I like it that way!  Emma is reading Minecraft books aloud to them...for helpful hints.  Listening to her read, for pleasure, delights my heart!!
Tonight, we are hoping all is well and we can go to church for a special Family Night.  Since we missed last Sunday due to plumbing issues and midweek Life Group due to illness...we are really missing our Church Family.  You're supposed to bring a dessert to share...but I think that, for once, MomE is going to buy a dessert to share.  *gasp*  I know, shocking.

More Snowy Fun-ness!

Here are the Cutenesses making snow angels and a pretty decent snowman with DadE! I'm glad they got a chance to play before the wind came roaring in and brought temperatures to a frigid 6 degrees, with a -30 windchill. Brrrrrr!

Shoveling Snow!

Yay...snow!!!  They stayed outside for a record 45 minutes.  Playing in the snow is an ordeal...especially in a state where investing in snow suits would be a waste of money.  They were very helpful for about 10 minutes...and then ran off to play!
They had snow EVERYWHERE...even in their undies. BRRRR! Caleb caught a shovel full of snow in face and then they were DONE!  Rather than mess with drying stuff...I just shoved it all in the washer. I figure it needed a washing anyhew.
It sure is pretty...and welcome on a Saturday that we don't have anywhere we have to be. Ahhh. 
PS: MomE is so thankful for DadE and his shoveling skills! She feels SUPER blessed!!
