Winter...

... is just around the corner. Rachel here. I took these pictures from our bathroom window yesterday as I was getting ready to step into the shower... yes, I actually took a shower yesterday... seriously. These pictures make me sad. Not depressed just sad for the coming winter. Winter here is cold, and wet, and all around boring. It's always icy, so you can't drive anywhere. And I'm virtually locked in the house ALL DAY... BY MYSELF... well, not really by myself... I'll have the girls, but they aren't always the greatest candidates for adult conversation... or any conversation that doesn't have to do with "peepoo" or timeout. This is the time of year I dread because I know Bryan will be out of town for about 2 1/2 months come January. Yes he can come home on weekends, but seriously... SERIOUSLY... 5 days at a time, locked in my house, playing playdoh and watching "Backyardigans" can take a toll on a person. If they'll have us, we'll probably be spending some time with my family in Tidewater. It makes me sad that Reese (and EG) doesn't get to see them often, so hopefully we'll get to make up for some lost time. And maybe they won't want to talk about boogers. :)
