Mother Nature Needs a Time Out!



Do you remember these pretty flowers?



Now they look like this:

It's so sad. I have kept them covered and everything. They just couldn't stand the Arctic blast last week. We had over 50 hours of below freezing temperatures. I guess mother nature didn't know I bought pretty flowers. She's so rude sometimes.


She's not using very good manners today either!

Today, instead of snow, we just got some sleet. So that street is just solid ice. Too bad I don't have any skates or a cute sparkly outfit to wear.

Anyway, the good news is that it's been chili weather. Yum!

These are my parents partaking in some of Marcus's delicious chili.

Here's Katie trying some corn bread in her high chair.

This high chair was mine when I was little. My niece and nephew used it too. It's probably not the most practical high chair, but I am not known for my practicality.
I just like for things to be cute:

Like this cute baby here. I don't think any of the corn bread actually made it down her throat. There is tons on my floor though!

I hope you are having prettier weather where you are today! If not, stay warm and toasty!

Poo for Mother Nature! She needs to "Bring on the Spring!"

But yay for adorable highchairs that are impractical. Some things just get better with age! (and red paint!!) :)
