Snow !!!! Or Snow &*#%!?

Looks like we're getting enough snow for school to be cancelled tomorrow. Can't decide if that will make for a fun day or a looong day. Last snowfall I outsourced snowman making to my mom who was visiting.
Here's what she built with the four-year-old:

And here's what she and the six-year-old made:

Don't ask why my kid is out in the freezing cold without a coat. But feel free to ask, "what exactly
is she doing in that photo?" Because that question I can answer - She's dancing! With the snowman!

PS The little snowman is for the baby. He didn't get any further then a trip to the porch while the rest of us were having snow fun.

To be perfectly honest, I'm not really sure what Patch is, but I always love a link to my blog!

Mother Earth: Oriental Trading You're No Friend of Mine

I get the Oriental Trading catalogue. For some reason this particularly offended me, on behalf of our earth mother - a whole page of disposable plastic (and paper) junk in honor of... EARTH DAY.
Are they fucking kidding? Does Mother Earth want you to make more trash or less trash? Why would you celebrate earth day with plastic erasers and plastic Slinky's? And more important, what marketing genius thought, hey maybe we can get all those save-the-earth idiots to buy paper plates if we just print Earth Day on them?
