snow will never get in the way of awesomeness...

Awesome #1: Let it snow, let it snow, let it freakin' snow! It was certainly not going to stop us from seeing our awesome little boy as The Herald in his class play, Robin Hood and the Golden Arrow.

Right on cue, my son -- easily the smallest in his Grade 1-2-3 class -- stepped up to the front of the stage and delivered his lines, loud and clear:

"Hear ye, Hear ye! Let the competition begin!"

And with a quick air punch, he bowled the audiences over with his overwhelming cuteness and made his parents almost weep with pride.
I kid you not, the crowd gave a laughing cheer and clapped. For. My. Awesome. Boy.

Wish I could show you a picture of him on stage, but we took a video -- no still shots. I'll update this post tomorrow with some kind of visual, if I can. Maybe I'll dress him in his costume again for a photo shoot here at home. I just wanted to share before I burst!

I'm hoping Harmzie can fill in the blanks of the evening on her blog. Her Norah was one of the MCs, and Pepper was one of Prince John's knights.
Interesting how our 3 kids seemed to be the loudest and clearest kids in the play...

Awesome #2: Okay, I can't all mad at the snow-requesting doofus, because all this snow inspired me to write my latest post on the Canada Moms Blog, The Dreaded Outerwear Overflow of 2009. Go and check it out, you know, leave a comment, and tell me I'm not the only one buried under a crapload of snow and rain gear.

Awesome #3: Completely un-snow-related, I share my Secrets to Powerful Beauty on my fabulous buddy Jami's beauty blog Bionic Beauty! Go! Go there now, and find out why I look so awesome! LOL
Thanks again for posting my contribution, Jami! :)


  1. We are going to get snow here tonight if you can believe it! As it's coming from my home state I feel partially responsible. LOL!

  2. this is all the snow you have left?

  3. Awwww- I love school programs and plays!!! I still remember Essie's first lines in her pre-school play.

  4. Bionic Beauty is a fabulous beauty read, and second your awesome nomination!

  5. Our local ski resort (Brighton, Utah) received 41 inches of fresh powder on Thursday, and I skied that day!

    We are expecting another storm this week too. I thought March was supposed to be "in like a lion, out like a lamb," not "in like a lion, and out like a lion." Here's to the endless winter 2009!

  6. I bet he was adorable! Looking forward to the video.
