Snow Daysssssss

Yes, there are 7 s's in my title.  We have now had 7 official snow days where we have missed school.  I have a feeling our summer is going to go by fast!!!!

The kids have had an absolute blast being home playing in the snow with all their friends.  They have spent hours outside.  I really got to see the blessing of our little neighborhood during this time.  There are 9 kids including ours that all play together and as of a few weeks ago, 3 more moved in across the street.  They have a boy Lincoln's age which is exciting.  I'm sure the kids will be getting to know them better when the weather gets nicer.  Anyway, they all really have fun together and made lots and lots of memories.

Layton is the youngest kid.  Boy does he think he is one of the big boys though.  He wants to do everything they do.

Little toot cracks me up.

We roasted lots of marshmallows.

Something that I thought was really funny was that the kids actually played in our playhouse during the freezing cold snowy weather more than they have in the spring and summer!!  They played for hours out there one afternoon.

These girls love to craft--especially Madison and Hannah.  They made all kinds of things to decorate the house and they were so proud.  They had club meetings in there too.  They have a little club that they call "The American Girl Club."  They all have AG dolls and play with them alot together.  They have a notebook for their club and everything.  I love it!

One day before the snow got too bad I took Hannah and Lincoln for well visits.  They were both healthy and growing like weeds.  I was especially happy to see that Linc's weight has steadily gone up over the last 8 months since he has been on his medicine.  I had been worried about that.

This is a silly selfie we took while waiting for the doctor to come in.

LOVE this picture that my neighbor took of all the girls, Virginia, Madison, Hannah, Lyla (friend of Madden's), and Madden.

Madison, Virginia, Madden, Hannah, 2 of the new kids, Ross Anthony, and Hunter.

Our last day last week, I tried to think of something different and fun to do with the girls.  We decided to have a mother/daughter mani/pedi party.  We invited our new neighbor and her little girl over to hopefully get to know them.  They didn't come and the other mom's couldn't either so it was just me and three of the girls.  Madden's mom sent some Jamberry nails and so I spent a couple of hours putting them on all three girls!

The snow was so good and no one would help me at the time, so I built my own snowman.  Ha!

My Dasher.  Talk about puppy dog eyes!!!!

Lincoln just loved roasting marshmallows and begged to do it every night!

We have had the weirdest weather lately, but it has brought with it loads of fun!!!
