Of snow, sickies and scrapbooking

Today we woke up to yet another blanket of snow. I'm sure you all know how I feel about that already, so I won't expound, except to say that I can't start my diet and exercise program until the weather says so. Silly excuse, but seriously, the cold weather makes me so depressed. Can't. handle. it. anymore. Thank goodness for my St. George Saturdays.

Sophia and Chloe are both sick today. (And yesterday, so no church for the three of us.) Poor Sophia. I think she has had more colds in her short 8.5 month life than my other two kids put together. When she woke up today she looked like she'd been put through the wringer. Seriously. Her eyes were gooped shut and slightly swollen. Her sad little cheeks and nose are severely chapped from all the nose wiping. The lack of said nose wiping during the night caused a nice coating of disgusting snot all over her face. And, to top it all off, she had a little accident with the hutch the other day, so her nose is totally scraped. And yes, I definitely deserve to be nominated as mother of the year. Chloe just has a 4 year old version of the same cold, so she's currently lounging on the couch watching her new Barbie movie, missing preschool.

I am missing grocery shopping. But, I didn't really want to go out in the snow anyway. I'll figure a way to get it done before the day is over.

And then there's scrapbooking. You may remember this sad picture of Sophia. I just loved it. Melted my heart. So, I put it on a page. The scan of the picture doesn't show up very wonderfully, so do check out the above link.

Finally, if anyone can tell me exactly what the title of this blog post is inspired by, I will do something special for you. A surprise. :)


  1. I don't think this is it...I think it's something else...but while i'm figuring it out, is it "what little girls/boys are made of"?

  2. I'm sure it was some poem
    But I was aginst poetry of all forms back when I had to learn about poetry.

  3. Not a poem. Not what boys and girls are made of.

    I asked Joel and with a little hint, he got it.

    If you're not LDS you won't know it. But that's all I'm giving up at this moment.

  6. As soon as you said LDS I knew what it was. Sooooo tomorrow the diet, exercise, and optimism? It WILL be sunny tomorrow, I hope!!! For all of our sakes!!! Yikes.
