This has been a long week. I started a new job on Monday. I think I will like working there. But Monday was President's Day and the kids were off school. So Chino stayed home with them. On Wednesday I had to request four hours off to take Audi to an appointment. (it had been scheduled before I got the job) I, of course, did not know it would take four hours. I thought maybe two. So I stayed late on Tuesday and went in early on Wednesday. Thursday I tried to get in early but we were hit with a blizzard. Chino had to stay home with the kids, again. Friday the weather was suppose to be worse than Thursday. So school was cancelled. I got up early and braced for the worst. It was nothing! I think we got passed over or something. Not that I am complaining. Chino had to stay home with the kids yet again. But I got my four hours made up, and Chino has had plenty of quality time with his children. The house however looks like a tornado came through. This is not a huge change. So all is right with the world.

We got some snow. About 8 inches of snow! The kids had a snow day on Friday and by Saturday I could not take any more badgering about playing in the snow. As soon as Juan hit the pillow, the girls hit the slopes. Well, the backyard anyway.

Josie, Gabby, and Audi I made the hats and scarves.

Gabby getting up from making a snow angel.

Audi likes to eat the snow.

Josie is sneaky.

A Day in the Life of Juan

It is important to start each day with breakfast.

Then dress up in your finest and get ready to go.

After a busy morning a little nap is in order.

When the fun is done wash off the evidence.

A ride before bedtime is always a good idea.
