How has it been so long since I last blogged? There have been lots of factors, including the fact that I have been lazy about bringing my camera places now that my husband has an i-phone. Instead of going back, I thought I’d start from our most recent adventures.
This week, we took a couple days off school and headed for the snow to celebrate Valentine’s Day, (and my 44th birthday!) When we arrived, we were greeted with lots of snow and the kids jumped right in…
Xavy loved “feeding” this squirrel snow.
You have a lovely heart, dear Allison!
Hot chocolate and marshmallows for the win, and then right back out!
These guys played in the yard, while Allison, Daniel, and Malachi went sledding.
Inside, we were cozy as could be. Hide and seek, games galore, reading, and movies consumed our time.
The next morning, we awoke to rain that had been pouring all night. Most of the snow was gone. Yet, we were not sad about it one bit. More games, more movies, and time to just hang as a family while the wind howled and the rain poured outside. It was glorious.
The morning started with Daniel’s special Valentines for all the kids and me. It is a favorite tradition for so many reasons. Each card is specially picked for each kid, and every chocolate is gourmet. Daniel, you spoil us!
These 2 brave boys wanted to go out in the storm, so… I let them! And then, my picture taking ended. Too much fun spending time with family and enjoying our day of “nothing.” We attempted to go sledding the next day, but the snow was all iced over. We’ll save that for another time. For now, our adventure was family time!
