What a busy last few days I've had. You are in for lots of pictures, and probably a bit of rambling as I pack it all in to one post. <grins>
Let's see. I was up all night Thursday night with excruciating tooth pain.. tooth #17 had to go as it was being a complete jerk in my mouth. Thankfully, I was able to get in late afternoon to the dentist Friday to have that sucker pulled.
Speaking of teeth.. Samantha lost 2 more teeth over the weekend. 1 at school on friday and another one (makes 8 gone now) in the middle of the night sunday morning.
Saturday, we kept hearing about the chance of snow for Sunday afternoon. It's like 4 weeks til Spring.. I didn't think we would see anything except for snow flurries... what is the norm here in Virginia is it starts off as rain/sleet and turns to freezing rain.. IF it's cold enough.. we've been experiencing mid 50 temps lately. I was expecting rain.
(Boy, was I wrong!!)
(Boy, was I wrong!!)
Saturday I lounged around starting to feel better from the extraction Friday. Sunday morning I wake Doug up so we could hit walmart to buy a quick gift for Cameron. He turned SIX (where'd my little guy go??) on Monday. Cameron and Samantha are having a shared birthday party on Feb. 25th. That means I have TWO six year olds for the next two weeks. I love it... my irish twins I call them. :) :) :)
Back to Sunday... we finish up shopping at walmart and we come outside to see flurries starting. Around 9:30am.
Wow.. looks promising, but it wasn't that cold. Doug drove me to Michael's so I could use up a gift card. I got watercolor paints and a calligraphy set to play around with. I come back outside, and bam... I see snow trying to start sticking to parked cars. The sky darkened for a snow look and we decided it was about time we head home.
A couple hours later on Sunday, this is what we had. The kids were begging to go out and play in it, so Doug told them to get on outta here.. heehee We figured with highs in the upper 40's come Monday, there wouldn't be much snow left...
while the kids played outside, I made this for Cameron's birthday the next day
I'm taking a class with Joanne Sharpe called Letter Love.
Cam man hung it up on his bedroom door.. he really liked it all except that I didn't color his name in.. lol
Monday morning we woke up with 7.5" of snow.
I told Cameron that Mother Nature gave him a present of lots of snow..he liked the idea!
Uh yeah.. we didn't cover the pool this year.. we're bad about that. ;)
The kids rushed right out to go play!
woohoo no school!
It turns out Samantha is really good at snowboarding.
While Katelyn and Cameron... not so much. ;)
Smiles all around though!!
When Doug got home from work we let little man open a couple of gifts.
I love these smiles of his... *squish*
and some team birthday spankings to last a year.. hehe
The weather warmed up nicely Monday afternoon, so Cameron was actually able to ride his bike outside with his new training wheels and in shorts no less.
while Doug outside in his bare feet (wth??? we always get on Katelyn about going out with no shoes.. hmmph) slinging snowballs at the kids on their bikes. ;)
on top of all the fun we were without internet for like a day, which leads me to this super lengthy long post. if you made it this far, a huge thank you!! I hope you and yours had a great weekend too!! I'll leave you with one more super happy birthday boy photo.. wooot! Papaw sent $20!!
I was up twice more on the Clear Scraps blog too, if you'd like to see.
Super big hugs,
