All the Sun For You

A mom, two boys, a husband, and a whole lot of adventure!

The Monday Snapshot – Snow!


We got a small blast of winter on Thursday night.  We were told by the weather alerts to prepare for 7-9 inches of snow, then 6-8 inches, then 5-7 inches.  We ended up with under 5 inches, but it was still enough for us to hire out the scooping of the driveway (because our snow blower broke the last time we used it), for B to go snowshoeing with his buddy from work, and for Matthew to go out and touch the snow a bit.  It was a BEAUTIFUL day today – sunny and bright!  Matthew had worn a coat but we took it off as we loaded him up in the car after our last stop this morning.  It was plenty warm and sunny for him to go check out the snow for a few minutes before going inside for his nap.

The first step into the snow before he TOOK OFF into it!

What cute little hands - he did this all on his own without prompting!

Hi, there, I’m Courtney. I never planned to stay home with my kids, but I got sucked into motherhood when my first baby came into our lives after years of infertility and multiple rounds of IVF. His brother followed closely behind, something we didn’t plan on after having such a rough road with achieving parenthood the first time around. My boys are IVF cycle twins, conceived on the same day but born two years and one day apart (they were both transferred on the same day in October, but with two years between them). My boys are the best of friends and my husband is a terrific husband, father, and most importantly… friend. He fully supported my desire to stay home (“I just wanted it to be your idea and not mine, I totally want you to stay home and raise our kids!”) and encourages me in everything I do. I am a lover of projects, spreadsheets, fitness, healthy cooking and eating, crafts, selling my stuff on FB (HA!), and the outdoors. If I’m active, I’m pretty darn happy!

  1. Glad you got to enjoy some snow… and on a nice day!! My favourite.. snow without the cold! 🙂 Jealous. I hope Matthew enjoyed it!

  2. Yay for fresh snow! I’m a big fan of the blue skies + fresh snow. 🙂

  3. That snow looks pretty damn good!

  4. He seems much more into it than Chloe was. Yesterday it was high 40s so it felt pretty nice being out in the snow. Ask me again tomorrow how I feel about it after we get another 12-16 inches!!

  5. We are getting snow tonight. As pretty and fun as it can be, I am ready for spring! 🙂 Matthew sure looks like he is enjoying it!
