Oh the weather outside is...


With the first snow comes complete and utter joy in the Doherty Home.

Snow is clean, fresh and darn right fun.

Snowballs, Snowmen, Sledding, Skating, Snow Angels...


you name it we do it, even eat it !!!

My kids almost jumped out of their windows when they saw our first snow.
Shea, even went as far as to put on his snow clothes
over his jammies and headed out the door.

He barely ate his cereal (which to those of you who know Shea...he survives on cereal)

After playing in the snow as long as humanly possible, the next great event
is "hot cocoa". 

Shea's new favorite beverage.
"I need hot cocoa to warm me up, my bones are reawwie cold, REAWWIE MOM!"

The fresh air and fun seem to have created extra love in all of them.
Not as if they didn't have it before but... something is different.

This is Bob.
Our new snowman and latest magical friend.
They check on him every day and even go so far as to adjust
his pink scarf and insure he is not melting.
(Given it is sub-zero today I think we are safe)

So now that you know where I have been, please understand the lack of posts
these days.  The Christmas Holiday has made for a very busy family and my mind
to be truthful is off in a far away land of sugar plum fairies and wrapping paper.

When I emerge on the otherside covered in tape I will report back.
