Last week we had temperatures in the 70’s so we did a lot of playing outside. We did some trike riding.
And lots of swinging.
But then Tuesday morning we woke up to the remnants of a sleet storm and temperatures in the teens. This may not look like much, but this little bit of ice shut down the entire metroplex for FOUR days.
School was canceled, DJ’s office was closed, and the roads were impassable so we were all stuck in the house. Tuesday we decided to cook. We made bread and Valentine cookies.
Wednesday we frosted the cookies.
Thursday we busted out all the games that I had stashed in the top of my closet — Hungry Hungry Hippos, Candy Land, and Hi-Ho Cherry-O.
Carter kept busy with the Mega-Blocks
Friday was supposed to be the day that it warmed up, but we woke up to this.
So once again we were all stuck in the house. Raine wanted to “walk in the snow” (not “play in the snow” just walk) so DJ took her out at lunch time. They were out there a lot longer than I thought they would be and they came back in soaked, pink-nosed, and smiling.
Luckily the sun came out Friday afternoon and melted the roads enough that we could go out for our weekly family date-night.
