Shoo Snow, Seriously Phil you LIED

So Phil the groundhog said early Spring, eh? So he said we were going to have promise of sunshine earlier and good weather, eh? Well I am here to call Phil a liar. Yes.. liar liar pants on fire. I am sitting here in NH staring at snow that is still falling outside my window. School is closed. Roads suck. Car looks like a snow pile and my kids? Well they are stuck inside because no one is really feeling up for playing in the snow due to the sickies still hanging on tight in the house. So to you […]

A Bit of Winter Storm Nemo #nemo #snow #kids

The kids had a fabulous time enjoying the foot of snow slammed on us by Nemo over the weekend.  The little one climbed up the snow bank from the snow plow to slide…. And then smiled as he went down backwards and did a spin to the bottom… The older two boys went outback to take advantage of the backyard hill… Then finally my daughter came outside and since I was the picture taker, there are no pictures for proof that I DID go sliding this year …. It was a blast of a weekend with moments that I had […]

Fun Snow Playtime with Shredz #family #fun #snow #toys

There is a new line from SwimWays called Coop Sleds where your kids can enjoy playing in the snow after carving a fun trail through the snow with these little snowboard dudes. We have not had enough snow in NH to really fully enjoy these characters in the snow, but I did upload a cute YouTube video of the boys checking out their new Shredz line at home. You can get all of the supplies for SwimWays new Shredz line on their website which includes a track maker, multiple trick ramps and little guys with their snowboards so that your […]

At Least the Kids Enjoy the Snow

I have three kids, two boys who are four and six as well as one daughter who is ten. My oldest and youngest would live in the snow, if I let them. Staying outside until every limb is just about frozen to waddle inside for some hot cocoa is a normal thing around this house in the Winter time with my oldest and youngest. My middle child on the other hand, does not prefer to be in the snow, while he loves to slide, he only lasts at most maybe twenty minutes outside with his siblings. Guess he takes after […]

Snow Will Hit Higher Elevations this Weekend

I was driving to school yesterday, listening to my normal country music station when they decided to start sharing some weather news. I should have put on the ear muffs. I should have changed the station, because what they said I will never forget. It’s the beginning of October and over this upcoming weekend it is said that way higher elevations, like the mountains, will have some snow over the weekend. Seriously? I am not ready. I have lived in New Hampshire all of my life, I really should be used to New England Winters, but I still don’t care […]

The Day We Attempted to Build a Snow Fort

I am well aware that it is still only February and that March is suppose to come in like a lion and go out like a lamb, but man this NH “Winter” hasn’t really been a normal one. Couple snow storms, one being in October near my birthday and that’s it. Other than that it’s been Spring like warmth then freezing cold the next day. Up and down weather patterns is probably what is causing many to catch the sniffles. Geesh Mother Nature, what’s up? Not that I am begging for snow, in all honesty, I DO NOT LIKE SNOW, […]

Winter Going Out With a Bang

Oh my goodness, please snow stop coming down. I wake up in the morning to find that we have more snow here in New Hampshire. I am not loving it nor hating it but honestly I do have places to go today. A birthday party for my oldest at a roller skating rink, I thought it would be great if I could bring the boys along. Problem is I don’t drive in this snow junk which means I am going to find a way to get there without driving, oh yeah I can do that! My daughter also needs to […]

Happy Tuesday

Oh my goodness it seems life is just flying by for me lately, where did yesterday go? Although I am excited for time to fly by because it is Winter in NH and let me tell you what, I do not “DO” cold. I love the view of snow from my windows but that is about it. I refuse to drive in the snow unless I have to and I just quite simply dislike dressing up in super warm clothing, all those layers just to feel comfortable in negative temperatures simply is not my thing. I have a lot going […]

Happy Friday

It’s Friday, the sun is shining outside and all I can think of is Spring is near. I love the idea of lilac’s being in bloom, they are my favorite in the whole wide world. I love the idea of being able to clean up my yard and maybe having a garden this year. I doubt I will ever get the garden idea going, but hey it’s just a thought! I love the idea of being able to take 2 hour walks everyday and not freeze my butt off. I am excited about the chirping of the birds first thing […]

Loving Snow Plows

I live on a main highway and so the state plow guy comes through each Winter flying through as fast as he can. The dirty snow from the plow has been known to fly all the way to my car and hit it making it sound like a huge rock just slammed into my house and car. The other thing that stinks about this snow plow driver is that every year they destroy our mailbox and so as much as I really want to have an address plaque placed out near the end of our driveway I am afraid it […]
