I haven’t blogged as much this week and I guess my only excuse is that we have just been enjoying life. I love to share though so here is a glimpse at what we have been doing:
Monday was a snow day here in our area and we spent the day at home. The kids were up at the crack of dawn and I fixed everyone breakfast before Eric left for work. I wish he could have stayed home and enjoyed the snow with us, but he had/has a 4W drive truck and made it there just fine. Noah went down for a nap after that and I worked out while Olivia watched a movie. After that, Olivia and I went out to play in the snow. She lasted about 30 minutes before the cold got to her. :-) It started snowing again mid-morning so we decided to stay indoors the rest of the day. We played games, baked chocolate chip cookie, and made Chicken tortilla soup for supper.
By Tuesday the roads were clear so we went to do some grocery shopping, visited my mom, and ate lunch with Eric. We also had dinner with my parents that evening.
Wednesday was another slow day and I did some house cleaning then took the kids to play at our McDonald’s indoor playground. The temps have been very cold this week so we have tried to stay indoors as much as possible. I made pancakes and bacon for supper last night and we attended mid-week service at our church.
Today we woke up a little later that normal (7:30) so we had to rush around and get ready for Story time at the library. The kids love all the singing and craft time so we try to go every week. We also picked up quite a few books. After that we decided to join some friends at McDonald’s again then came home for lunch and naps. I'm making Sloppy Joes and french fries for supper then we have a church event to attend tonight.
I’ve also been doing a lot of reading lately and I wanted to share a few of the titles:
I finished this book last week and I will say it is a must read for mother's with littles.
I'm still working my way through this book and I have enjoyed it so far. I know that I don't have what you would call a large family yet, but I love anything that will help me stay organized with children. You might not apply everything she says because it just might not work for you, but she has lots of experience to learn from in raising a family.
I'm listening to the audio version of this book and browsing through a few sewing books just for fun.
These next 2 books I have on hold at our library and they will probably be my February reads.
