it kills everything else...

...maybe the cold and snow will kill the germies?



After being cooped up for a while, Chicklet and I went out to clear some of the snowfall we've had over the last two days. And after helping me remove the snow, and ice and snow (yeah... layers!) that covered the car, she wanted to play a bit.


It's nice to see some rosy cheeks on her face.



What sucks though is: no hot chocolate as the ban on all things dairy is still on *sigh*

"Love is like swallowing hot chocolate before it has cooled off. It takes you by surprise at first, but keeps you warm for a long time."

I think I'll make someone right now. It's good to see Chicklet smile....

doggybloggy said...

she has such pretty eyes...

what about soy .....

Anndi said...

Mims: Someone?
Yes, it's wonderful.

DB: Thank you, sweetie.
Hey, that's an idea... Of course you would think of that!
SMOOCH!

Casey said...

I'm so glad you guys are feeling better, this sickness going around is terrible. Love the pictures, Chicklet is a cutie!

Jay said...

No hot chocolate during the wintertime? Oh no!

Heinous said...

That looks like a good time in the snow. That soy was a mighty fine idea. Let me know how it turns out.

Irish Gumbo said...

Awww-some! Get it? Awww....Good that peeps seem to be feeling better. I like snow, but not so much of it.

This just gets better and better. That Monty Python clip is classic! (One of my favorite movies, how'd you know? Sniff..) AND I had a Sally Field moment too! http://irishgumbo.blogspot.com/2008/12/my-first-sally-field-moment.html

What are your terms for parting with the Guinness beef stew recipe? Exchange in kind? I'm salivating.

Anndi said...

Casey: Thanks! I'm hoping after the weekend she'll be back to her usual milk guzzling self. These bugs have really been fierce.

Jay: Hopefully it won't last much longer.

Heinous: She came in and told me she smelled like snow and that it was a good thing ;)
She doesn't normally like soy milk, but chocolate makes everything tasty.

Irish Gumbo: LOL you're too cute. If it were up to me it would snow around Christmas and New Years and then we could go back to nice warm weather.
You have excellent taste in movies and beer!

Send me an e-mail (it's on my profile) and I'll hook you up.

Awesome snow pics! Reminds me of where I used to live, heh. I loved coming inside and having a cup of hot cocoa, soy can save winter!

Where we live now, it slushes. That's it. Cold, wet, slush, that totally messes up traffic for a day, and then melts. Back to rain. Sigh.

Jeff B said...

Nice to see signs of life around your place. We may have some snow here over the weekend.

Charles Gramlich said...

That reminds me. I've got marshmallows.

Anndi said...

Goodfather: It is rather beautiful, all this snow (except the yellow spots, heh!). Slush is only good when it's cherry flavoured and being enjoyed on a hot summer day.

Jeff: I'm hoping it's a turning point, it's nice what snow on eyelashes does... one of my favourite things ;)

Charles: We'll be right over!

buffalodick said...

Glad you two are getting better!

Akelamalu said...

Ah chicklet must be feeling better she's smiling! :)

Travis said...

They have this powder stuff they put in a packet. You open the packet and dump it in hot water.

Presto!

Hot chocolate!

It's not as good as the stuff you make with milk, but at least it shouldn't upset the chocolate or dairy restrictions.

Fortune Cookies said...

look at all that glorious snow! we had a couple of inches, but it melted the next day. sigh. such is life in the south.

Brian o vretanos said...

Sadly, the bugs seem to thrive at this time of year - Helena's just getting over one too...

Kay said...

Glad she is doing better… that is sad about the hot cocoa though, trust me, I feel that pain.

And thanks for the MP this morning, perfect way to start my lazy Sunday : )

DeeMarie said...

Great photos! Looks like she had fun and is feeling much better!!!

Bummer on the hot cocoa though!!

Dianne said...

oh my she's so pretty

now I can't stop thinking 'bring out your dead, bring out your dead' -

Slick said...

Good gosh woman! I live in Georgia...

Just looking at those pictures are going to give me nightmares!

nitebyrd said...

Sounds like you're both feeling better! Good!

Cat said...

That looks like so much fun! I don't remember the last time I played in the snow. Maybe that's why I don't like winter as much anymore.

Lu' said...

Cool pics. I clicked on the ones playing and how they are displayed. the rosey cheeked picture is real nice too. I agree with db, she has very beautiful eyes.

Lisa said...

Your daughter has a beautiful face. That smile and those eyes! How do you ever say no? lol

Dana said...

Chicklet just keeps getting cuter! Pretty soon you'll have to beat the boys off with a stick :D
