The White Stuff

I took a little time out from stressing about whether or not my flight was going to be canceled to take Easton out into the snow. Snow and I don't have the best relationship and I really just wanted it to go away, so I felt like the best mom in the world, braving it anyway for the sake of my kid who thought it was awesome.I really wanted a cute picture of him smiling in the snow, so I finally just yelled, "Easton, just stand there and smile so I can take a picture!!! Please?." This is what I got. He yelled "cheese" as loud as he could, to make sure I knew he was annoyed with me.

Love the "cheesy" picture of Easton. I think that it is so cute. Glad you are getting to share in our winter weather and not just basking in the Vegas winter sun.

Hope you have a Merry Christmas in Oregon. We're going to miss you guys.

Love ya

P.S. Look at Steve's smile in the previous post, the one by the tree. He and Easton smile the same. :-)

I knew he would love the snow! I'm glad you braved the cold and took him out in it. Are you in OR yet??? Call me and check out my blog- I put pics of the snow here on it.

That is so cute. Don't you love that kids can be sarcastic even at 2?

I love the stand there and smile pics! I need to figure out something else to say because EMery's cheese face pretty much just sticks with the "ch".

You are the best mom ever.

Awwwww...that's a great smile Easton! Is your flight all good? Are you going to share your story about you and the snow?? Have fun back at home :)

I'm kind of glad the snow if mostly melted today. It's fun for about two days.

I sent your Christmas card to your parents house! ☺

That's hilarious. He is really cute. I hope you make it to Oregon ok!

I love the footprints in the background! They remind me of the cartoon Family Circle where Billy makes all these footprints to show where he's been. Well Easton's prints run around and stop at Mom to say CHEESE before running off to have more fun.

Have a wonderful Christmas! Glad you made it to Oregon! Love you all!

Is it strange you've been in my dream twice in the last week? Yes. I think it is too. Pleasant... but strange. :)I don't even think I'VE been in my dreams that often.
