So, I have been playing around with my blog today and there is much to be learned! How fun! In fact, I spent some time on here this morning when I was supposed to be exercising...oops! Oh well, maybe later.

Brett and I are taking the boys to play in the snow tomorrow, so I am frantically trying to pick up snow gear for the boys like pants, gloves, a sled etc. However it is proving difficult to find these things. I managed to get E some snow pants at Target! Yeah! Now I need to find a pair of snow boots for me and some kind of sled or saucer. It is so strange to live in an area where it doesn't snow. I grew up in Utah and you just always had snow gear. We miss the snow. People here think we are crazy! So many people live here in sunny CA because of the fact that it doesn't snow here. But, there really is nothing more beautiful than fresh, clean snow blanketing the ground and trees and icicles hanging from the roof. Yep, I miss it. Anyway, it should be a lot of fun tomorrow. The boys are really looking forward to it. In fact, this will be the first time that C who is now 5 has ever actually played in the snow! Can't wait.

Update: I managed to find some snow boots for myself! After I picked up the older boys from school (yes, I must be crazy), we all headed off in search of the boots and a sled. We went to not one, not two, but three sporting goods stores on our quest and wouldn't you know it, it was the last store that had what I was looking for. So the boots are by no means a fashion statement, but they'll do. The boys were laughing at me because they are so "tall"! HE! HE! Yes, they do go up my leg around my calf, but at least I'll be warm and dry. Also the boys picked out a tie dye funny! But the best part is that it is a toboggan type sled and they were so excited to be able to use it together!
