Snow Day #2



These are pictures I just took after being outside for a bit with Kyle since everyone around here seems to have cabin fever because of the snow. The kids are all safely tucked in bed for a nap now, so I have a minute here.

The snow dumped here again last night and with this being the 3rd dump in 4 days, let me tell you, I'm soooo over it! The worst part is that it's apparently not over yet either and they're calling for more Saturday! I don't even think this'll be gone by then.

The school district here was actually open for school both days though lots of other districts weren't. That doesn't directly relate to preschool, but I think they do take that into account. They called yesterday and said they'd be open, but not to worry because the kids wouldn't miss anything if they didn't come. I thought it was just too hard to get them all to the bust stop even though one of the other mums offered to take Kyle up if I got him to the bus stop. I couldn't push the stroller and there was too much snow for the little ones to walk. It was up to Kyle's knees yesterday before we got more overnight and this morning! We did get a call today saying preschool was cancelled after we got more snow and with there only being 6 kids out of 20 there yesterday!

This is one of my pictures of the day from a couple of days ago though I can't say I've done it every day this month. I do keep it in the back of my mind though and I have more I need to upload. This is Nathan's new play place - the window sill in the living room. He sits up there and plays for ages with his trucks, cards and trains.

I just put Kyle down for a rest/nap too though I suspect it'll be a nap today since he got up so early. We had this funny little conversation when I laid down with him for a minute.

Kyle: Mummy, so you want to play a game?
Me: It's time for your nap.
Kyle: We could play a dreaming game.
Me: How do you do that?
Kyle: Mummy, what are you dreaming about?
Me: Ummm...Daddy. What are you dreaming about?
Kyle: Daddy...bringing home pizza from the pizza store!

It was all I could do not to totally lose it laughing. Kyle loves pizza from Little Caesar's (aka the pizza store) and would no doubt eat it every night if he got the chance! Guess he apparently even dreams about it!

Well, we had a bit of a rough go this morning with Nathan and Sophia not being in tip top form. I think Sophia was tired or teething or maybe even both, but it made her quite whiny/needy this morning. Nathan just wanted everything his way, so it didn't make for a great combination and we had more than a few tears. After lunch, I put them to bed and waited until they were asleep and then Kyle and I headed out front so I could shovel the driveway again. Yes, AGAIN - I did it yesterday too. Think George was shocked. It was good to get out and get some fresh air and Kyle played in the snow, so it's all good!

Now for a little creativity. Yes, I have been doing some though not as much as I would like. I did this recently for a layout tag at Scrapshotz and we just did the reveal, so I can post it now!


Supplies: Cardstock is Bazzill. Patterned paper is Basic Grey. Poinsettia is Imaginesce. Numbers for the date and lettering for "tree" are American Crafts Thickers. Sticker in title and Santa embellishment are K & Company.

Well, think that's it for now. I'm going to go take it easy for a bit and maybe watch Young and the Restless while everyone naps!

Cheers,
Colleen
