Indiana was loving the foot of snow that fell in our backyard. The little black dog with a brown butt shows up quite well against the snow.
Bounding, bounding, bounding in the snow.
The snow itself was up to her chest, which means she is bouncing to move around in the yard. This also means she has decided to pee and poop on my deck. Damnit.
The (MU?) birdhouse left over from the previous owners has been a nice measure of how much snow we received in the last couple of days.

I shared this over on my pet project 40 Weeks to Fatherhood, a blog for my unborn kid due in August. Still, I thought it was worth sharing in both places; especially since I am going to be on the lookout for someone in KC with killer kung fu moves or a Batcave...
We were sitting the parking lot of the local library during your Mom's lunch hour eating burgers and talking about our future with you.
Mom: You know we really need to put together a will once the baby is born.
Me: Yeah, we should.
Mom: What would happen to us if, god forbid, we were both killed. I want our kid to be taken care of.
Me: Me too.
Mom: Who do you think we should ask to take care of our kid? I know it is such a remote possibility, but I just want to know and have something in place just in case, you know?
Mom: I think any of our brothers would be a great parent to our children if we were gone.
Me: Yeah, but the key here is understanding that, if we both really are killed, I would expect my kid to avenge our deaths. So, which ever uncle would best send our kid down that path would make the best god-parent.
Mom: And here I thought you were actually going to contribute something to this conversation.

The grandparents are already lobbying for a favorite when it comes to our not-even-born baby.
MU v. KU
My mom always seems to think she failed in her mission since I went to MU, Brother #1 went to K-State and then Brother #2 went to Illinois State.
So, this grandkid is her last hope...
