Zachary went to the dentist for the first time today! I took him when Aidan had an appointment earlier this month, so he was familiar with the routine. He did an amazing job! Some of these pictures are not fabulous, but you get the idea. They let him put on a pair of "magic gloves" and he could pick blue or pink...he picked pink!

I have a desire to be a seamstress and sometimes I get caught up it that dream. I will think I can do something and then in reality my Mom lives too far away to understand the problem at hand. Then, I give up. But....my sister led me to this fabulous website that is actually doing projects from boys all month long! Perfect, right?! (the site is www.dana-made-it.com) There is a easy step-by-step tutorial on there to make boy pants. I read through the directions four times before realizing that I can do it! I went and bought the fabric ($2.50/yard) and went for it. Luckily, I bought a whole yard instead of the half that it called for because I messed up the first pair by making a beginners mistake! Knowing what I did wrong yesterday (when the pants were, less say, SNUG on Zachary) I began again today. It took me two hours and I had made a pair of pants! I am proud of myself! If you can't find me later this week, I may be at the fabric store looking for some more fabric.

This is what I woke up to Wednesday morning. This ended up being 22 inches of powdery snow! It was beautiful, fun, and there was no ice involved!
We went to a friend's house when we finally made it out of the house. The dads built a maze for the kids. This is Zachary sitting in the maze paths.

This was our third winter storm in two weeks. This one was predicted to be 4-7 inches at 10 pm last night. I woke up to many more than that this morning. The last check I heard (hours ago) was 22 inches in Springdale! They said this was three years of "average" snowfalls combined in four hours! It was been beautiful to look at but I have to get to work tomorrow. Work is scheduled to pick me up at 6 am tomorrow morning. Here's to hoping I get home before 10 pm tomorrow night! This first picture is the drift at the backdoor.

We are on our killionth (as Aidan calls it) snowflake this week. Unfortunately, it has been too cold to go outside with below zero windchills. Today was a balmy 23 degrees! We made our first trek out of the house in four days to Walmart and Sam's Club! We also played a little in the snow from earlier in the week with the additional inches that were falling today.
