Outside w/o gear for the last time this season?

These were pictures I planned to post with charmingly witty captions during NaBloPoMo, but I feel like I should get them up quick because it is SNOWING! And they will soon be totally obsolete. What a luxury to be outside with no coats on. I noticed this morning that wearing coats and hats and the like adds 50% more time and 64% more screaming to our get-out-the-door routine. Can't wait till there's slush to contend with!

Can you believe all the crap we hauled out in the yard? Our neighbors LOVE us-- wouldn't you?

Love his little flabby cheeks

Santa makes it so klassy

They even took their coats off. Ahhh, memories.

I am actually pretty bummed about the snow that I am watching fall right now because Harry is like a puppy-- he needs to go outside and be exercised (exorcized?) for at least 2 hours a day. here is is playing his favorite game-- Running Up and Down the Sidewalk While Screaming. In a pinch he'll play this around the kitchen table or on the stairs. Oy.

Aaaand then they spent some time pushing each other off the slide. Yay for safety!

    Yep, these kids need rounder cheeks, Sarah. And they could get a little more red, too, especially when they're playing. :)

  2. Definitely "exorcized." I have said many, many times that having two boys is like having Golden Retrievers. They have to have a yard to run around in. And they eat like horses.

    Love the slide pic of Jack flat on his face at the bottom. Wes loves when Charlie roughs him up. I do not.

    I know, and they talk about global climate change like it's a BAD thing....
    I am freezing already. Th only good thing about winter is the sleeping, which is great!
    Those guys are soo cute! Luckily, Jack's a tough guy.
