Army of Mom

So this is how liberty dies ... with thunderous applause.


Sweet kids, snow and surgery - Oh my!

My kids are so sweet sometimes. Not all the time, but sometimes. This was at the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History.

She loves her brother.

It is snowing BIG TIME today. The kids are so excited. Hot Rod went to daycamp and Pickle went with his dad on some shoots and then he'll get to come home and play in the snow. Stinkerbelle is about 60 miles south of us and they haven't gotten any snow yet, but the temps are continuing to go down and we may get up to three inches of snow. This is a big deal in Texas. Of course, I won't be able to enjoy it because I'll have a splint on my foot, but Army of Dad is like a little kid when it snows, so the children will have a blast.

Here is a view from our front porch.

It doesn't adequately show the giant snowflakes that are coming down. I'm so happy to get some snow. Hot Rod said "This is what Christmas is all about!" to which his brother said, "NO it isn't! It is about Baby Jesus being born!" Of course, this wonderful exclamation of Christianity was said in that pissy 'you moron' voice. Ahh, the spirit of Christmas. *shaking my head*

I leave in about 15 minutes for the hospital. Surgery is scheduled for noon, but the doctor said I'm the third surgery of the day, so he may be running behind. How come I'm never as hungry as when I know that I can't eat? Sucks big time.

    Well Pickle (aka mini-Uzz) enjoyed the shoots and he got to meet Jerry Jones (owner of the Cowboys), which he thought was pretty dang cool! I should have taken a picture of the two of them, but I did not want to push my luck.

    We got home and went outside and had a snowball fight and then went to eat lunch...I will send and post pics here in a bit...on my website...I will send pics to AoM so she post those also...if she likes!

    Hope the surgery went well...your dad said they were running WAY behind, so I am sure there has been a freeflow of obscenities;-)
