New Nails, Space Age, and Climbing Walls

We are at the tail end of winter, and we're so ready for the warm weather.  We have kept ourselves busy and entertained, trying to make every day interesting.

For example, today we had a nail party for G.  His finger was accidentally squished over Christmas vacation while playing air hockey, and he's had a band-aid on it ever since.  To make the imminent loss of his nail easy for him, we promised him we could have a "nail party" when it finally fell off.  Today, we celebrated his new fingernail by going to the park with some friends.  It was lots of fun, and only the beginning of a great day that included the science center with the Brociouses and rock climbing.

February 13:  G and Bun made a snowman on the back deck.

Today:  Chip's "nail party" treats

We gave nail clippers as favors.

We think this might be a first.

Thoughts While Folding Laundry

I am sitting here on the family room floor, folding laundry.  I pulled a blue shirt out of the basket that I thought might be Matt's, but I knew from the color that it must be G's.  I wondered if maybe his clothes are big enough...  well, you can see where that thought went!

Snow Day!

G had early release today from school, because it was going to start snowing.  Around here, it's best to stay home when it snows, because between the inexperience, lack of equipment, hills, and whatever else, it can be pretty treacherous out there.  But maybe the biggest reason is that nobody salts our roads, so if we drive, we slide.

Much of our neighborhood celebrated by playing outside in the snow.  Here are some pics from our fun in the snow.

We're on our way to the Princess Diana exhibition and just drove by FAB, scene of "Shut up, Lindsay Lohan's Daddy!"  Love our city.

Successful Shopping Trip

We needed a few things at the North Georgia Premium Outlets.  For those of you who have never seen (or lived in) the trunk of a Chevy Malibu, it can fit approximately twelve small elephants.
