Happy Dance and a Happy Birthday

Today the kids are back in school!!!  Do you know how impossible it is to get anything done when there are kids everywhere?  This week has been amazingly crazy - the kids were out of school 1/2 a day Monday and then all day Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday - all due to snow and ice. Thank you Lord - I have had enough - can we please get Spring going?

Seven years ago today, our Lily was born.  What a treasure she is!  If you know her, you know that love and joy bubble up out of her.  She loves God, she loves to sing and she loves to hug.  Happy birthday sweetie!

Yet ANOTHER Snow Day...

Here we are - the first day of February and we have almost used all of our snow days!  We are under a "Blizzard Warning" with a forecast of 12+ inches.  So, what's a mom to do today (and probably tomorrow) with a house full of kids?

  • Make Banana Bread
  • Do laundry
  • Pray the kids sleep late :-)
  • Force the kids to do the homework they brought home
  • Get crafty and work on these homemade Valentines from Family Fun and maybe lots of these for me and the girls to wear
What do you love to do on Snow Days?
