"Oh! no! no! a noman!"

Hiho, Brecken here. (the way around the photo space issue is to use justin's gmail sign in and use up his space, you will also notice that I took the time to resize the files.)

I woke up to the sound of shovels. I thought "that sounds a lot like shovels," and then tried to figure out what it really was. When I opened the curtain I was happy to see snow... lots of it. Beautiful clean white snow to cover up the dirty city. (okay, okay, I know the city isn't as dirty as it used to be, but it still is dirty.)

So, when naptime came around I decided to admit defeat, and take Reuben out to play instead of be upset that he was not falling asleep. After all, what kind of Minnesotan would I be if I didn't try to encourage a love of snow and all things winter in my son? So even though Reuben can't say s+consenant combinations so it sounds like he says "Oh no no." he is really saying "Oh! Snow! Snow!"

Is he asleep now? No. But he ate a pretty good lunch.

I need to work harder on the exposure in snow thing... I'm sad these aren't stunning photos, maybe I can help them out with photoshop when I have more time.

Oh, P.S. I made the hat he is wearing, I made it for me, but the cables make it too tight for my head.

Man I am so jealous of the snow. Yesterday we had 80 degree weather. It looks like Reuben had lots of fun. Oh and I love his hat, good job!

I'm jealous of the snow too! I really really miss snow :)

And I think the photos are great! So cute! I think I'm going to have to bump the 'new' desktop photo for one of these.

Good on you for seizing the opportunity to subsitute nap time for snow time :)

What is wrong with you people? If it doesn't stop snowing here soon, I'm going to ... okay, so I can't think of anything dire enough to do, but I hate snow! It is wet, hard to drive in, gets disgustingly dirty in a matter of hours, and makes me miserable. Arrgh!

I love snow! Except for the hundreds of accidents people get into here...

I think your photos are not just stunning, they're stunningly cute.
