The Frozen Tundra of North Texas

Sometimes I think the news stations in our area are a little over dramatic when it comes to our weather. But nevertheless, it is C-O-L-D. We are not used to temperatures in the teens in Dallas. Frozen roads + 11 degree temperatures = a mom and two kids that have been stuck indoors for two days in a row. And that my friends can cause a mom to go a little crazy. Especially today since not only are we stuck indoors again we are also having "rolling blackouts" every couple of hours. I know it's bad because I am actually feeling thankful for my iPhone.

I have watched cartoons laying by the fireplace, played go fish, danced, built two Thomas the Train track sets, kissed more boo boos's than I can count on two hands, put together three puzzles, fought in a dozen light sabre battles, pushed babies around all over our house in their strollers and read a least fifty books. And today is only half-way over!

Hello....Spring?? Are you there? It's me, Monda. I really need you to get here as soon as possible! Thank you!

That's Amore

It may only be 14 degrees right now here in Dallas but these Valentine's Day pictures of Jonah and Meredith just warm my heart!

* The Valentine's Day pictures were taken by my sweet friend Narci @ Narci D Photography
