Birthday #11

I've decided to no longer have anymore birthdays for my boys. 11 for Nathan is enough. No more getting older, no more getting bigger, no more growing is allowed.
I really don't think that is going to fly, but it was worth a shot.
Nathan had an amazing birthday yesterday. He wanted an ice cream cake full of dark chocolate brownies, vanilla ice cream, hot fudge and caramel sauce. It was rich and gooey and simply delicious! He got some amazing gifts, hung out with lots of people who love him dearly and got to go to his Brazilian Jiu Jitsu class. He went to bed exhausted with a huge smile on his face.
Birthday #11 was a success.

I wanna play in the snooooooooooooooooooowwww

That is all I heard for 3 straight days. It's colder than cold outside but when there is snow on the ground, the temperature no longer matters. So, I bundled the boys up and tossed them outside.

They pelted each other with snowballs, made snow angels and ran around the yard like fools until they could no longer feel their faces. Then when they could no longer take the frigid weather, I unbundled them and thawed them out with hot cocoa. Now they are wrapped up in blankets watching football. What a life!
