Snow Day, day 2

So, today we were able to get out and play in the snow. It was too dry to make a snowman so we just measured (over 7 in) the snow, walked around and the boys went with Jason to the creek to play while I went in to shower and warm up! The snow was so deep that it got into my shoes and then I was COLD!! They all had tall boots on.

Going Stir Crazy

ok, so we are all going a little crazy here! Going to load up and brave the roads to head to town. And maybe go out for lunch. Just want to make it home before dark. Snow pics coming later today

It's snowing, it's snowing!

It started Thursday at 8:30 pm with freezing rain. Then, the sleet started, then, the snow, and snow, and snow and yet, more snow. Now, we are definitely snowed in for the weekend. I would guess we got about 7 or 8 inches. And, guess what, we are supposed to get about 3 to 4 in more tonight. It is soooo pretty but I am going crazy! And, so are my kids-just look at the pics. Jason finally put on headphones to block out the screaming. Bedtime is calling now:)

Weekend in Review

photo 1: Landyn being Bob the Builder (with too short overalls that are an 18mo size)
photo 2: letter sounds a & b; however, 3 min into working on them, Landyn informed me that I wasn't the teacher! Not sure how this is going to work out

Here's our weekend run-down:
Fri-Kordyn had friend over, ate dinner at Pizza Chef with Amy, Shawn and Ethan before the husbands deserted us for the weekend to head to the hills to trap and goof off.
Sat-cleaned out Landyn's room and closet, my room and closet, napped and then met Amy and Ethan for dinner, went with them to Lifeway and then to Sams. I stayed up late to watch shows I'd dvr'd last week.
Sun-Landyn did not sleep well-had a stuffy nose so we stayed home in the morning to make sure he wasn't getting sick, cooked our fav lunch we eat when Jason is gone: Chef Boyardee boxed pizza, Landyn played Bob the Builder, napped again, got ready for church, ate dinner at Zaxbys and then got boys in bed early. I however, could not sleep. Wonder if I napped too much this weekend???
Don't think I will have any problems sleeping tonight. We are dinner at our new Olive Garden and I'm ready for bed right now!

I gave in

Well, today I gave in and drank a small glass of Diet Dr.Pepper. Haven't had one since Monday, January 11 when I had that stomach virus thing. Just really haven't wanted one and wanted to quit drinking sodas. It tasted so good!!!!! But, I only had about 6 oz and then drank 2 glasses of water so I think I'm still doing good. I have really felt better not drinking sodas. I did drink tea but mostly water-the colder the better!!

Happy happy joy joy-it's Friday!!!!! Jason just left for the "hills" with his friend Shawn to trap all weekend, Kordyn has his friend Layne spending the night,and Landyn and I are headed to bed. So tired this week for some reason. Ready for about 8 hours of sleep!!

Crazy weather

okay, so there is nothing quite like getting woke up at midnight with 58 mile an hour winds and hail blowing through your city. Can't believe that Jason and Landyn slept through it. Kordyn and I didn't, tho. We were up ready to protect our house. I have trouble sleeping through storms-my grandfather was killed when a tornado struck his trailer 5 years ago this month. I never want to be taken off guard while sleeping. Ready for bed!!!!

Mr. Mom

Guess who's been Mr. Mom this week? I think he's decided that being both me and him is really hard.
I have survived the stomach virus. Went to the dr: it was not the flu or appendicitus just plain old stomach virus, but it lasted for 3 days!!!! Such fun! Came home early Tuesday and stayed home Wed and Thurs. So glad to be back at school today.

Friday Favorites:
1. The sun: we had a 50 degree day today. So nice to see the sun and be able to go out to the playground.
2. Karen Kingsbury books: she is a wonderful author the only problem is that you get so into the books that you stay up to 2 in the morning reading them:)
3. I would say real food but haven't had any since, well, Monday night. I've only eaten jello, crackers, banana, and popsicles. Gatorade is also the the nastiest drink I've ever drank, btw.

That's all. I've used up all of the energy and now it's time to rest on the couch. Night all!!

Christmas in Bryant

We had a wonderful Christmas with my parents in Bryant. My brother and his family were able to join us from Macedonia so we had a full house!!! We enjoyed shopping, eating out and shopping in Little Rock and Bryant. And, caramel apple spice drinks from Starbucks!!! I have great pic of the boys and Maggie but we are having internet problems so I will try to upload it later. I need to get my dad or Amy to email the group pics we took of all of us.
