The Snowy Day. by Gracie and Jada

"The first thing we did outside was make snow angels," Jada said.
"The snow was very fun on the slide.  I slid on it first," Gracie replied.
(She would throw snow back onto it for the next time.)
Jada said, "I climbed on the green thing and then I pulled myself up there, and then I put my legs like this (showing me) because I couldn't get my head out, and then I couldn't get my other foot and I thought I was going to break my foot and so it just stayed like that.  And I slid on it."


"When Mommy put my gloves on, I pretended I was being two biting fish called SHARKS!" Gracie said.  "And, I snapped at her!"


Meanwhile, back in the house...

Trey was having fun playing with the blown-up ball and clapping to Patty Cake.

snow day.

Not really.
Wish we did. 
We have at least 6-7 inches on the ground outside.
My toes are frozen.
But, at least I'm home with all three kids.
We all have pj's on, and we're ready for a warm night- in the house!
However, I know that won't last long!  Chad will be home soon and Gracie
will be begging to go outside and play IN THE SNOW!

workin' it

I got a treadmill for Christmas.
A really. cool. one.
I'm giving myself until my birthday (March) to see if my clothes fit better.
Surely I can do it.
I'm not putting a number in my mind that I'd like the scale to say.
Although that's not a bad idea.
No pressure.

I'm a bit giddy about this whole blog thing. 
It also scares me... a lot.
I see so many great blogs that I read daily, and think
how uncreative I am.  
But I have to remember.... this is for the blog book at the end.
So looking forward to posting pictures of my amazing family, and our
Thanks for reading!
