This has been a week bookended by birthdays and full of brrrr. Oh my good god, is winter not over YET?

Saturday was warm and cozy inside the house as Simon celebrated his 9th birthday party with a few good friends.

These horses were from Manotick’s shiverfest a few weeks back but I didn’t get around to posting them at the time. I love the frost on their faces, poor things!

As I mentioned earlier in the week, I’ve been playing with ideas for new blog banners on and off for quite a while now. This was a failed attempt:

But then I finally stumbled in to what I really wanted. Once I had the idea down, it didn’t take me long to put these together:

Did I mention it was cold this week? This month? Seriously, has this not been a particularly cold, snowy winter? Poor Lucas fell asleep in the car with his hands shoved deep into his pockets for warmth.

I got so sick of the cold that with 15 cm of snow in the forecast I went hunting through my archives looking for signs of spring and warmth. A little over the top, maybe, but that’s how I’m feeling about warm spring sunshine right about now!

Dear Spring, I miss you. Come back soon!

And then, Lucas turned FIVE!

Happy birthday Lucas!

The nice thing about birthday season is that once it’s done in mid-March, spring really is just around the corner. We’re getting there!

This week in pictures: March Break and other plagues This was supposed to be a week filled with pictures of our family visiting for March Break, but we all ended up being so sick that I barely pulled out my camera at all while they were here.

  5. Project 365: Deep in the heart of winter I‘ve heard that the last week of January and the first week of February are the dark heart of winter — the coldest weeks of the year.
