Our First Snow of 2012!

At least for those of us in New Jersey. 🙂 We woke up to snow Saturday morning… Not tons, but enough. More than enough for me! I’m not a huge fan of snow. It’s wet, It’s messy. It’s a horror to drive in.

BUT, I have to admit, seeing Andrew’s excitement over the snow is fun. From the moment he got up he was singing, “It’s snowing, it’s snowing. We have snow!” And the snowball fight we had was fun. And watching him make snow angels. Of course, the best part was the cuddling together on the couch as he drank hot chocolate and I drank tea !

Here’s a bunch of pictures of our snowy backyard:

Still, give me the heat of summer anytime!

Fall Festival Fun

We took Andrew to a fall/apple festival a couple of weeks ago. It was a beautiful day and we had a lot of fun! Unfortunately, most of the pictures I took didn’t come out except for these few:

Father and son

The apple doesn't fall far from the tree!

Even with holding on he had a hard time sinking his teeth into the apple.

Bobbing for apples

The dry version of bobbing for apples!

This cow won a bunch of ribbons and awards but I don’t remember why:

My Karate Kid

My son recently started taking karate lessons at the local YMCA and loving it! He has only taken two lessons so far, but he already considers himself an expert! LOL! He looks quite cute in his uniform though. 🙂

Futuristic Car

We took Andrew to an apple festival / car show a couple weeks back. While there, I saw this cool looking car. I have no clue what kind of car this is, so don’t ask. 😉 What caught my eye the most is that it looks like it has no tires!
