After so many weeks of a grueling winter, we dread checking the forecast! I avoid it as much as possible. Ben got up to drive to work today and there was a lot of snow falling and it continued ALL day long so he ended up having today as his work from home day instead of Wednesday.
The boys spent pretty much most of the day outside sledding! Their good buddy Mikey has a couple of sleds and he has been bringing them out all weekend. They sled down the huge mound of snow out by the end of the sidewalk (away from the street!).
There goes Samuel for sledding round #435!
I didn't feel like walking out into the snow, as pretty as it is freshly falling, and instead stood under the porch snapping pictures like a mommy stalker:) Yesterday the temperatures got warm enough that the seriously dangerous icicles that have been building up on the roof over the past couple of weeks started to fall. Whoa! It sounded almost like thunder as they slid of the porch roof and crashed!
We made the boys stay far away from the icicles because someone could get seriously injured; these are SO heavy and big.
Can you tell Samuel was having fun in the snow??!
He didn't want to come in for dinner!
Today, Ben resumed our special date time with the boys by taking Zakkai out for lunch at a little place nearby with hotdogs and other junky cheap stuff:) Just what a kid loves! They had a good time talking and spending time together. Now it's my turn with Samuel and before we know it, we'll be adding Eliana into the mix!
We also did a tiny bit of rearranging today. I felt the bug creeping back in over the past week or so and since Ben wouldn't let me move our atrociously heavy couch, which scratches the wood floors, I moved a couple other smaller pieces. I had to rearrange Eliana's room, too, to make room for her dollhouse, as Baby C has found it a fun thing to check out lately:) She was very happy helping me fix up her room. Which really means she was asking lots of questions and playing "hide and seek."
Eliana has a newfound love for playing hide and seek with me, which consists of her saying, "Mommy, find me!" And then she runs to her "hiding spot" and giggles loudly while calling, "I'm over here behind the couch!" or "I'm behind the chair! Find me!" Ha! She gets such joy out of it:)
We are gearing up for birthday #2 this week! We'll have one happy little boy in a few days:)
