Just another winter's day at our house...

I am done with winter.

Seriously done.

And we've had a very mild winter (as usual) here in Vancouver.

But still.....in my perfect world, winter would come into town around Dec. 1st, just in time for me to get all cozy and ready for Christmas, and then would simply disappear around New Year's day, and turn sunny and warm for the rest of the year.

Sound good?


Nevertheless...we make do with indoor "activities" on rainy/gross days...

There's nothing quite like a laundry hamper for some real, down-home fun, right? :)

Seriously...these boys could play "gophers", or "skunks", or "dragons" in there for hours. 

But we lucked out this week with some sunny days!

The boys were every bit as excited as I was to get out in the sun. (Even if it *was* only 8 deg celc)

We'll take what we can get!

Here's my little hazel-eyed Finn :)

And my blue-eyed Toby boy.

It honestly makes all of the somewhat stressful, out of control days worthwhile when I see my two little monkeys playing so nicely together. 

They actually really and truly play together now and it's so cute I could die!

This is a very typical "I'm watching my big brother, and trying to figure out how to do what he's doing" look :)

And then the evenings....

they can get a little wild.

Haha.....before 7 pm, that is ;) (our kids are early to bed/early to rise types)

This "do a header over the back of the couch and come up grinning" game is always a hit.

(don't worry....they are NOT landing on the floor!...there's a padded bench seat on the other side, with a very fluffy sheepskin that they land on)

So...there you have it....a typical winter day around here.

Sorry for the boring post, and the lack of any awesome creative inspiration around here...

But I'm up to my ears in salted caramel.....finally got www.gigglesweets.com up and running!

Keep posted for two awesome giveaways in the next week or so!
