the snow bunny returns

and luckily for us, she was in a much better mood this time.

we sledded:

and snuggled:

and slept:

just kidding!

what's odd about our baby afton in the snow is that she becomes totally unimpressed. no smiles, no laughs, not a single peep. her generally genial demeanor is completely stoic. not sure what that's about, but, hey, as long as nobody's screaming, we're cool with it.

ten things i love


pretty red dresses (and laughing babies).

a good concert.

fun wheeler family factoid:
the inscription on bryan's ipod is "bryan wheeler rocks my world."

new shoes.

fun wheeler family factoid:
for our first valentine's as a couple, bryan gave me a pair of shoes.
as homage to that cadeaux, i now have fashionable feet to look
forward to every february fourteenth.

candy. necklaces. and candy necklaces.

a package from mere mere and opa d.

fat free cookies.

fresh flowers.

cute babysitters who craft with my kids.

the bilibo.

in other valentine's weekend news, we decided that two things from our recent dates absolutely deserve the wheeler bump:

first, from our big night out, the stone house. to all our peeps on the eastside, eat here. you will love it. i promise.

second, from our big night in, lars and the real girl. you wanna know about love? real love? watch this movie. you will thank me. i promise.

love somebody

happy heart day.

dare to compare

a lot of people tell me that afton looks like baby summer.
my reply is generally, "yes, that's what everyone says."

but aside from, of course, those big beautiful eyes, i just don't see it.

my life would suck without you

valentine's inspiration this year came from
mine and summer's love anthem.

go here to have a listen.

(note: i think the exact face bryan told me to make was "angry pout.")

and in a very un-wheeler-like moment, we thoroughly failed
to document the candy-making process, but for those of you interested
in whipping up some of your own old fashioned suckers, go here.

two wheeler winter

summer went out with her dad to "ride" her "bike" this morning.

in the sunshine.

without a jacket.

but let's face it duvallians, we deserve some brightness in our sunless saga of winter disasters. enough with the ice storms and floods and power outages and blizzards already.

yes, it's hard to hate on el niƱo when you're soakin' up some (much needed) rays.
