Is w#@%&! over yet?

Yes, winter is a bad word.  It is technically spring right now and it is freezing outside.  Okay, it's not too bad, like -40 degrees we had a few weeks ago, but it is too cold for what it should be!  And if it snows one more time...even one little snow flake, I'm going to lose it.  I am pretty much going to guarantee losing it, cause it will snow again for sure, this is Alberta.

I took this picture on March 1st.  That is not with the wind chill, what made it more like -45 degrees.  EW!

I took this picture on March 3rd.  It was - 30 something.

Okay, no more complaining.  One of my co workers took this picture the day of the Olympic women's hockey gold medal game.  There was a bunch of us watching OT in the lobby.  My boss is super awesome and let me watch the game instead of working.  Can you spot me?  I am the one with my eyes glued on the TV.  I watched soooo much TV during the Olympics.  I loved every minute of it.  I would record everything during the night and watch it the next day when I could.  I can't wait for the next time!

Look at these nerds...

And these nerds...

And this nerd...spelling her name with pretzles.  She thought it was so cool and that I had to take a pic of it.  It is so cool, it is on my blog.

And then there is Hannah and her wonderful drawing skills.  She did a portrait of me while we were waiting for Taylor at karate.  Don't I look so beautiful?

When I take Taylor to piano lessons, sometimes Hannah and I just wait in the car and read.  I told her to bring a book, and she grabbed the Book of Mormon.  So cute.  This is her trying to read it on her own.

And finally, Barb and I coordinated a skype date for Taylor and Whitney.  It was so cute to hear them giggle and laugh with each other.  After a while Barb and I were talking and trying to tell the girls to be quiet so we could hear each other.

Now, my girls have the next week off for spring break!  And I took work off too.  Phew.  I will be spending most of the week sewing.  Yes, I said sewing.  Joe and I were called as tribe leaders for Moroni's Quest for our stake in August.  We need to have a flag and our costumes ready for the next fireside.

And then the next week I get to spend time with all my awesome friends in Glenwood!  I can't wait!  They don't know this yet, but I am not letting anyone leave....we will be there together...forever...

Yes, winter IS a bad word! Ha! I loved this post. I think my fav pic was of Taylor spelling her name in pretzels because I feel like that's totally something you would have done as a kid and smiled just as proudly. She looks a lot like you in that pic! It's the teeth. ;)
