Phew. January who?

{warning: longest post ever}

2011 started off with a bang and has not let up since. Busy must be the word of the year, at least if January is any indication.

And then it snowed (and snowed and get the picture)

Yes, that is the saddest little snowman ever. Remember, we are in the deep south and have little experience with such matters.

8 plus inches!!! (remember, we are in the deep south and have little experience with such matters)

After a week's worth of the white stuff enough was enough. We headed further south. To Hogwarts. Bet you didn't know it's in the sunny state of Florida.

Mmm, their first butterbeer. Yes, they're of age.

Yes, that's my son, a bra, and a dog. Sounds like the punchline to a risque joke. No, he's not of age.

Yes, that's an orangutan. Long story.

Scared outta his pants? Uh huh.

A fairytale ending.

So that was January. February, be kind. Mama's tired.

Oh my gosh!
Decor be damned this is the really meaty stuff!
How adorable can they possibly get? Killin' me here!
Now I see how you keep them in check -- backyard play set, indoor dj-ing and lots of dancing ;)
And where is this mythical land of Hogwarts?
We must arrange for an offspring pow-wow stat!
Hugs to the boys and to the tired Mama!

Seriously, they are so ridiculously cute! It looks like you must be one busy mama, judging by all of their adventures.

The snowman pic is my fave.

Alcira- Mythical land of Hogwarts is Harry Potter's domain located in Orlando. Universal to be precise. It's awesome if you are a fan of the books!

WOW!! So freaking cute, I can't stand it. I love that you guys took this trip, I would have loved to go! I think I love Hogwarts and Bart Simpson more than anyone! Your kids are going to be vera handsome young dudes, breaking hearts all over the place.

That snowmobile sled is da bomb! Let's hope you can use it again next year! Glad to hear a review on the new Hogwarts..I'd like to check it out. We went to the HP exhibit at the Museum of Science and Industry in Chicago (2009) and it was kind of a let down.
