Note to not ever post during an emotional melt down again!
um yeah, sorry about that. My husbands stress dumped on top of mine, the babies non-stop screaming that morning, piled on to everything else that was going on and it spelled disaster at the keyboard. I will definitely attempt to stay away from the keyboard in those situation from now on.
I do really appreciate your heartfelt comments though, they brought tears to my eyes, in a good way. I realize that I am not the only one out there that is having or has had hard times. I want to start refocusing on others instead of getting myself all caught up in my own problems. I need to remember to pray and put my faith in God. I know He knows what is best for our family, even if it doesn't make any sense to me at the time. I am a control freak so it is hard for me to let go and let God.
On a lighter note after my emotion and very public melt down, I pulled myself together and decided it was time for some snow fun! So we went outside and built a snow man. Bubu was so excited because last time we tried it didn't work so well, but this time it was perfect snowman building snow.

We got the eyes, nose and mouth done, but by this time Spike wasn't having it any more, and was having a complete melt down. In fairness to him the snow was up to his knees and he was already so bundled that he could barely walk, things weren't working out so well for him.
He wasn't so keen on the whole playing in the snow thing. So we called it a day. Bubu was really worried that his snowman would get to cold because it didn't have a hat or scarf, so I told him not to worry and that we would finish it the next day. He talked about his cold snowman all night.

So this morning we woke up to more snow! Good grief, I haven't seen this much snow around here in a long time. Bubu found a hat for his snowman, I found a scarf, and we headed back outside.

Now he is all warm (but he doesn't have any hands, poor snowman). He got a little lop sided over night and he had more snow piled on top of him, so we fixed him up a bit and he was all better. Bubu just loves him. We would make more, but the babies can't stay out for long. Spike didn't like the snow any more today then he did yesterday. Atty was having fun until he did about four repetitive face plants in the snow, then it was all over, time to go inside.

Bubu didn't want to come in so I let him play on the back deck for a while. He was covered in snow, but he was having a blast. It was really cute. I have a lot to be thankful for, hard times or not.

I love Bubu's snowman! Very cute :) That's so sweet he was worried about him getting cold! We have 14 inches here but it is too powdery, no snowmen for us. Thanks for sharing the fun pics :)

First, I just want to say, I have been praying for you and your family and that since this is your blog...your place to vent or say what you want to say that it was perfectly fine for you to post during a melt down. You needed to get it out and you did. We listened and didn't judge you. I really do hope you are feeling better this week.

I love the pictures...looks like you had some fun with the kids. Playing in the snow and building snowmen is so much fun. It finally warmed up enough on Saturday that we were able to go outside and play in all of our snow but not sticky enough for snowmen. We are getting more tonight and tomorrow so we are hoping for snow that sticks and for it to not be so cold(it was -21 when I went to work this morning).
