january is moving right along. we've had more rain this winter than i've ever remembered. except california, growing up, we had some good rainstorms in january. it rained all day and night on monday and melted down the snow a good 6-8 inches. no i didn't measure, just guesstimating from the park bench out back! and now as i type it's snowing pretty good again. this is the most snow we've had since living here! well time to get back to the daily chores of life.
well we definitely weren't expecting this much snow! i spend a good hour shoveling a path way to our wood pile. i guess it's good that it wasn't stacked next to the garage, because it would have been completely buried with all the snow that has fallen off from the roof. i only hauled 3 wheelbarrow loads back to the house. there is so much snow!! it never stopped snowing today. i found a nice surprise when i lifted the tarp, anthony's glasses, he's only been missing them for 2 weeks now... that kid. "oh, THAT'S where i left them!!!" he's lucky they didn't get crushed. we had to walk back home after school, i took the drew kids home and got stuck in their driveway. i debated whether or not to pull in. shoot!
i can finally say i've been to trader joe's! how i wish we had one here. i love their packaging on all their products and their story. these cookies are the BEST! ok totally not sponspored, and off to unpacking from our trip and loads of laundry.

jeremy's first dental checkup. 8 flossing cavities. ugh. dang it. but he was so happy to be there, that he ran straight to the back, and then returned, saying "but mom, the teefer checkers are not back there!" yes, you have to wait your turn. we got there 15 minutes early for once instead of on time, and we waited 35 min! yet when i show up exactly on time, we get to go right back. so what's the point in being early for dr appointments?!
we love a good donut, for me anything with chocolate, although i love a good old fashioned glazed donut too.
the boys went for a sugar cookie, the colorful frosting gets them every time! jeremy got mad because he was so excited to bite into his cookie that it jumped right out of his hand and onto the floor.
second stop:discovery park in pleasant grove
1550 N 100 E pleasant grove, ut
we haven't been to this park since we moved, the girls didn't even remember it! lots of towers and bridges, the boys had fun chasing each other all over. we met jeremy and visited for a bit while the kids played, we missed georgia this time, she had a game.
