Snowy days, the high cat and a special surprise

I know I'm going to end up kicking myself later when I'm stumped for a post topic, but I just happened to have three great pictures to share today and I'm excited to put them out there right now. I can be impatient like that.

My original post for today was going to feature Tom and the twins enjoying some father-daughter bonding time while building a snowman. The girls were really excited to do this and we had some actual double-digit temperatures yesterday for them to play in... above freezing in fact, fortunately for Tom.

Then while I was getting the camera to upload the photos, Harry the cat started meowing at us from his favorite high perch. I have a theory that two cat households divide the furniture and other assorted territories into the "high cat" and "low cat" areas. Harry is our high cat. Our other cat, Lucy, would never venture here.

And the final photo for today, an extra special surprise via air-mail... a letter from the twins' birth mom, with her new post office box address in Ethiopia and a couple of baby pictures of the twins! Here they are in their youngest pictures yet; about eighteen months old. It brought a lump to my throat. We love you, Roman.

They are so cute! I heard Sarah cried because she though she looked like a boy. (What?) And I love the snowman :)

WOWZERS! And- beyond words that you are still in touch... (longingly stated of course...)

Hey thanks for your comment. You are probably right on many accounts- especially the over thinking it part. But isn't that what we AP's do best!?!? ha ha.
