From this winter storm we have gotten cabin fever! Today, we ventured out to Williamsburg. It felt so great to just get out.
Rosalie Was So Excited For Her Friends Birthday Party
The Birthday Girls
And lots of it (by VA standards.) In the past two weeks, Troy and Angelo have had six snow days! At first it was fun, but we are ready for a normal routine again. Hopefully, this snow clears up before Cici arrives! My Dr. office has been closed due to weather several days this week so I had to miss my 38 week appointment. That is another crazy thing, I am 38 weeks!!
As much as I hate the process of getting ready to play out in the cold, since we only get a few days of snow a year, I have to take advantage. The kids are dying to make snowmen and it's still too powdery so hopefully we will get a little time with wet snow to make them.
Can't Believe She'll Be 10 This Summer
We made large ice marbles (water balloons filled and food coloring added, left out in the cold all night.) The kids were so excited about them and they turned out really cool.
Friends and family from NY would laugh at what we got two snow days and an early dismissal for! We probably got 2-3 inches, but we'll take the time home together. Today was a blast! We played in the snow, made snow ice cream, went and found somewhere to go sledding, and drank hot cocoa, it was perfect! Between this weather, Martin Luther King Day, and a Teacher Work Day on Friday, Troy was at school a total of about 3 hours this whole week.
This Kid Just Loves Football!
The kids were so excited to open the front door and see flurries. It didn't stick, but it was our first snowfall this year.
He Was So Excited About The Snow, A Little Buffalonian At Heart.
Catching Snowflakes On Her Tongue
She is such a goofball!!
This morning when I asked the kids what we should do they loved the idea of bowling. We were even lucky to see some friends at the bowling alley totally unplanned. Luckily we left when we did b/c tornadoes and high winds were touching down in Gloucester.
A Strike On Her Very First Bowl!
A Spare His First Bowl, these kids have talent!
They claimed that the reason I won was b/c of help from Cici.
I love how they love each other!
Great Friends wanted to celebrate Baby Cecelia so we went out to dinner and stayed for 2 1/2 hours!
These are some of my closest Mommy friends. We became friends when Troy was a baby and they each have a kid close in age to Troy (and some have children close in age to Rosalie also.)
