Are You Kidding?




My tomato seedlings are croaking left and right because they are still in my house. Not happy right now.

And it's snowing again!

Dare I Hope?

The other day when I picked up the mail, there was a letter to Cody from Loyola University. What's that about? I gave it to Cody, dying of curiosity. Finally, about 2 hours later I asked him about it and he says "Oh yeah, they sent me some emails too". I live with a brilliant idiot.

They are interested in Cody because of his standardized testing scores (if they saw his regular grades they would be wholly unimpressed). He has an opportunity to get college credit while still in high school....and he's going to do it (whether he realizes that or not)!

He got a brochure yesterday and got a little more interested. I think a visit to the campus might be in order...when it's warmer.

Who knows, Cody might actually see outside that 3 inch bubble he lives in...Dare I hope!

Fat Tuesday

Laissez les bon temps rouler! (I hope I spelled that right)

I just found out that I have Mardi Gras royalty in my family! Grandpa Sute sent me a picture.

Apparently Miss Hannah loves to be admired by her adoring subjects! Long live the queen!

The Rest Of The Snow Day

We had the most fun out in the snow! Tipper had enough when he developed pom-poms on his legs.

Cody tried to make a snow angel but the dogs refused to let that happen.

Mr. Plantfreak took this gorgeous shot of the lake.

Cody finally finished his snowman. The dogs kept "helping" him by knocking it down.

Even AJ joined in on the fun. ...and didn't get pissed when he got smacked with a snowball or two. I just wish he had put on a jacket!
He rolled around in the snow and loved every second of it. The boys stayed out there for hours! Mr. Plantfreak went in early and made breakfast for us. I made snow ice cream , and it tasted like really cold powdered sugar. At first. The school finally came to their senses and cancelled classes for the day.
Yep, we enjoyed our little bit winter!

Snow Day

I was severely chastised yesterday for not blogging....sorry Vicki. It's been pretty hectic here at Plantfreak Acres. We've been trying to gear up for Spring, which is pretty hard considering we got about 6 inches of snow last night!

That may not sound like much for some people but I'm from the south ya'll! I don't think I've ever seen this much snow since Dad took me to Switzerland. Even then I just saw it but we didn't get in it. This is something! Cody just geared up to go and build a snowman. School isn't out, just delayed (the crackheads).

The animals are enjoying the heck out of this too!

Digger is so short that he gets covered!
Jade and Devil Dog are just going bonkers out here!

I can't tell what is what!

I'm going to get pics of Cody...be back later!
