Kids.. These Things Here Are Called Hats And Mittens!
We have not really had the chance to use them here in NJ where normally we would have had at least one good snowfall by now. Or at least would have been cold enough to put on so that the little hands you hold don't freeze. Due to our abnormally warm winter here, they've only but seen their hats a hand full of times.
Well we are headed up to northern Maine this weekend to visit my mother-in-law where they have several feet of snow. I normally absolutely hate snow, but if it's somewhere I am on vacation where I get to sit and relax and not do anything except play in the snow and possibly drink some hot cocoa and bake some home made cookies, I am ok with that.
I have been sick this past week and a half and I am praying that my kids do not catch it while we are up there. Let's just say that the dr's in this town are kinda scarce. It has been quite some time since we've been up there to visit. I was pregnant with my 4 year old the last 14 hour drive up there. The drive is usually long and exhausting and I am hoping the kids do well, but once we get there, their memere (grandma) has much planned hugs and kisses in store for them. :-) Trips to play in the snow with a toboggan, bundled up in their snowsuits so only their little eyes show through. Maybe even a snowmobile ride for some of us. I can not wait to relax and catch up.
With that, I am bringing my laptop with me, but will I get internet connection is the question. We will see. If I post then yes I do, If I do not then the connection has failed. See you soon!
