Here in the Show Me State we have had a few days of snow…and ice. I’m sure you’ve heard.
My husband, who’s a teacher, worked only one day this week, Monday. And Mia only had only one day of school this week, Monday.
So as you can imagine, we’ve been having a lot of fun all snuggled up at home, spending time together.
Something I feel families should do more of.
I am thankful, grateful and so blessed to have the opportunity to be such a big part of all the memories my girls are creating. Memories they will always have. The same memories of togetherness that I will forever cherish, as well.
Despite a few days of lock down, we have made the most of the wintery drama. Movies, popcorn, pedicures, more movies, sewing, sledding, hide and seek, the Ladybug game, puzzles, baking cookies, my own version of homeschooling, (…aka worksheets that my girls thought were boring) reading, making soup and even going to a birthday party and taking a road trip.
Winter isn’t so bad after all!
We had some “wine” leftover from New Year’s Eve so the girls gladly grabbed their very own size wine glasses for dinner one night.
Steve shoveled, yet again, our driveway along with the sweet couple across the street who are unable to do it.
We built several “forts” to “chill out” in.
And Gracie continued to hoard her fave items.
(Please tell me that some of you also have a hoarding two year old! I am getting worried.)
The “cow” hat, as usual, and her new bestie, Elmer the elephant!
A thoughtful gift from Aunt Karen and Uncle Craig that accompanied two of the cutest books ever.
Gracie also snuggled up with her new friend Macy.
She is one of my friend Kelly’s sweet baby that I watch on occasion. Gracie can’t get enough of Macy.
We ventured out for a fab 6th birthday party for our niece Carly.
I snapped a fun cousin shot before things got too crazy!
And a few weeks ago we road tripped to my sister Haley’s house to watch my cousin Kelsey high jump!
She did so awesome and Mia and I were so thankful to have finally gotten the chance to cheer her on.

While at my sister Haley’s house we ACCIDENTLY hit up a few bridal boutiques. Here is one of my favorite dresses from the day. She may or may not have picked a different one that is even more gorgeous than this one.
I hope you are all having a fun winter as well. What have you been up to? Leave me a comment. I’d love to hear from you. Who even reads this?
