catch the moment: week 8

Our bitter cold and snowy February has continued on. Saturday we got the most snow we’ve seen all season – about 6 inches! My best friend in Nashville got some bad weather Friday night too, so with that combination I followed my gut and canceled our yearly girls-only weekend. I was super, super, super sad about it but made the best of the weekend anyway (after pouting all day Friday). The really fun, good, exciting news is that the boys got a new bed – a bunk bed! I am going to write a separate post about it and share a few pictures of their reaction and whatnot. It’s been really fun to watch their excitement about it, which has yet to wear off.

050/365: Thursday, February 19th. Bunk bed day! This was one of the many expressions on Theo’s face as he walked into his room to discover their new bed. As a parent, sometimes moments and your children’s reactions in certain situations are disappointing. Their reactions did not disappoint one bit. I was so happy, sharing in their joy and excitement.


051/365: Friday, February 20th. Dinner out at Cheddar’s. 02-20-2015

052/365: Saturday, February 21st. Our friend Layton turned 3! One good thing about me staying home was that I was still able to make it to his birthday party at 3pm. The roads were surprisingly clear by then, once we got off of neighborhood streets. We were all laughing because Layton wouldn’t wait for us to finish singing before blowing out his candle.02-21-2015

053/365: Sunday, February 22nd. Last minute playdates are the best! My friend was bored after her husband had been gone a few days on a ski trip and brought her kids over to play. So fun…I only wish they lived down the street instead of 45+ minutes away.02-22-2015

054/365: Monday, February 23rd. We had just gotten home and were waiting on Nana and Pop Pop to stop by to check out the boys’ new bed. What else would we be doing but playing Legos!?02-23-2015

055/365: Tuesday, February 24th. As much as I hate winter, I have to admit that it’s kind of pretty sometimes. Like out in the country where there are no 6′ tall piles of freshly plowed dirty snow. 02-24-2015

056/365: Wednesday, February 25th. A little coloring before school.02-25-2015So it turned out to be a pretty good week all in all. Everyone’s genuine smiles on day 52 might make that photo my favorite. I also like that winter scene. Which one do you like best?
