First it Snowed
Then it iced
|Nala dragged me out of the house before breakfast to collect icicles to save in the freezer for summer time.|
Then it snowed some more

When a girl in a red and white dress plays with a gigantic candy cane, you take a picture
and she knows that you think she's beautiful
and when a ninja comes at you?
The heat goes out, when it's below 30 outside, and it's an opportunity for a family slumber party. We should do this every night to cut down on heating bills.
Love my new wide angle camera lens (google made the picture sparkly somehow):
Our excitement about prepping for a trip to Europe for Christmas and New Years had the tire popped. Mariano caught the Chicken Pox on Monday. Chicken Pox as an adult sucks more than as a kid. I feel so bad for him.
So we thought we weren't going, since the kids are not vaccinated and therefore will probably come down with it after the 10-20day incubation period. But then we thought deeply about the implications: train tickets, already forgone work income, and the reality that we wont get the opportunity to reschedule until next winter. I decided that I'd rather need to extend the trip in Europe and wait in a hotel or family member's house for the kids to complete the virus, than miss out on the trip with only a possibility that they might come down with it.
So now we are going. Hopefully Mariano is up to the trip tomorrow. He's not contagious anymore, which was a major concern. I'm so nervous about getting sick out there that I don't feel excited about the trip anymore. Just hoping things work out.
