Weekend Away/Snow Day

Have you been wondering where I am? For the two of you who care-- this is what has been happening with us.

The kids and I are left on Saturday morning to visit with friends in Belmont. We stayed with friends and attended the church hubs served when we lived there. It was really nice to see everyone and have them meet B. Especially since these are the people who saw the birth of all my girls. We stayed with some friends from that church. Here are a couple of pictures from out weekend.

We always have fun with this family!! On Monday we visited with more friends there and then saw the weather report and started to rush home. We were literally in the car when K called and said not to try it because it was already getting bad at home. He said I should plan on waiting til Wednesday because it wouldn't warm up til then..... So, we unpacked the car and stayed Monday night.....We woke up Tuesday morning to....absolutely NOTHING!!!!
So, we were able to drive home on Tues as originally planned.

I arrived home to find that the same thing had happened here and there was very little snow. I did hear that we would be on a two hour delay for school on Wednesday because of the back roads.....At about 7AM on Wednesday I got a call saying school was cancelled due to inclement weather....WHAT?!!? Here is a shot of how much snow we had at my house..... why in the world are we having a snow day I wondered.....

Then I looked out my window and saw this....beautiful isn't it? Maybe people live up there so that is the reason for the snow day.? Maybe.
And my driveway still looks like this......yep it is slippery.
So, I was hanging out with my kids yesterday. We had a couple of friends over for a bit and then of course had church last night.....
And just because I can't believe it -- just look at B.....he is getting so big. he will be 5 months old in 5 days.....

Have a good Thursday everyone!

We are on day 3 of snow days. I'm over it. I'm not kidding. I can't even find the snow anymore. Sorry you didn't get more. We didn't get much more than you did. Honestly, my Canadian friends are laughing right now. Joy got 6 feet and they're still moving about...with school IN SESSION.

Cute little B. He is growing.

I have no idea what we're going to do today other than stare at one another and play another game of Sorry.

Can you tell I'm stressed?

Awww, that is the best picture I have seen of your little boy. He is adorable!

My kids were out of school on Tuesday and there was zero snow on the ground. I guess it is because of those mountain kids. :D
