I kept hoping against hope that Nemo would show up on our doorstep – after all, while Sandy was an unwanted visitor, Nemo would have been welcomed with open arms. While those that got dumped on by boatloads of snow were probably cursing Nemo for his annoying visit, I feel like I’ve been dissed by Nemo.
In my opinion snow is way better than rain – for one, it doesn’t flood the basement. Also, it’s much more fun to play in – have you ever tried to build a rainman? Ahem. Plus we did actually invest in a snow blower and generator – neither of which have gotten used since. Maybe I have a penchant for snow over rain because I grew up in the rainy state of Washington, and since we’re moving back there this summer I’m watching all hope of a good snow before we depart fade to black. Le sigh.
Speaking of hope… Remember how I mentioned Princess Nagger’s first Amazon review on the Minecraft Pocket Edition last week? A day or two later, they had the update available. So naturally Princess Nagger thinks it was because of her review. I’m happy to let her think that.
Speaking of Princess Nagger… She auditioned for her first school play – they’re doing a revised musical edition of Little Red Riding Hood. She was auditioning to be Little Red, or the Wolf, or Grandma – all leading parts (though she would have been happy to be one of the forest animals, just to be in the play). She was honored to be selected as Grandma:
In this version Grandma doesn’t get eaten by the wolf, and it’s all about teaching the wolf about being nice and sharing. She’s had two after school rehearsals so far and is having a blast. I’ll be sure to record the play so I can share it with you, too.
In other Princess Nagger news… I got a call the other day that a drawing she entered in an Art Contest has won a prize – when I asked her about it, she shrugged her shoulders and said her art teacher liked a drawing she did and had told her she entered it in a contest. She said they were doing shadow or silhouette drawings, and of course she did one of a dragon. She was tickled to hear that it won a prize, and I can’t wait to see what the drawing is. We’ll finally get to see this award winning drawing at the art show next week – I’ll be sure to take pictures so you can see the drawing, too.
I saw this floating around on Facebook and it totally cracked me up:
Speaking of pictures floating around on Facebook… You’ve heard the phrase “Jack Frost nipping at your nose”, right? Bet you never thought Jack Frost is a deer:
