These random iPhone photos are dark, blurry, and untouched,
but they capture everyday moments from this week.

Hadley thought it was hilarious to sit in our blanket basket:

Today was snow day #3 for this week. Savannah started the day by reading in our bed:

Savannah finished chapter book #7!

The girls have slept until 8:30 or 9:00 A.M. while we have been on vacation and/or snowbound over the last month. Hadley was NOT happy when I woke her up at 9:00 this morning:  

This morning the girls and I used one of our free treats from the Chick-fil-a app and got free chicken minis for breakfast:

Our family is planning a trip to a warm destination (perhaps Aruba?) this spring. Savannah and Hadley will need passports for the trip, so this morning the girls and I drove downtown to the vital records office and got several copies of their birth certificates. On Tuesday, the girls have an appointment at the post office to have their passport photos taken and to turn in their passport paperwork:

When the girls and I were done at the vital records office, we ate lunch and played at McDonald's. After being snowbound for the last two days, it felt great to get out of the house and burn some energy:

At McDonald's, the girls enjoyed a free mini ice cream cone:

Winter Wonderland

Yesterday it snowed for 12 hours, and we ended up getting 5 inches of snow. The girls and I slept until 9 A.M. this morning since school was cancelled:

When we woke up this morning, it was a peaceful and beautiful Winter Wonderland:

Our snowy backyard

The girls were excited that Tal worked from home today. During Tal's lunch break, the girls played in the snow, while Tal shoveled our driveway:

Do you like Tal's snow shovel?

School is cancelled tomorrow, so the girls and I will be enjoying the snow and some extra family time...and probably going somewhere to eat lunch and play since we have some cabin fever:

Everyday Moments

These random iPhone photos are dark, blurry, and untouched,
but they capture everyday moments from this week.

Hadley loves her painted pink nails!

When the girls woke up on Wednesday morning, there wasn't any snow on the ground (and they were so disappointed). They looked out the window and waited for the snow (which started falling around 9 A.M.):

Savannah recently took over the responsibility of unloading the dishwasher and putting away all of the items. She's been doing a great job! 

While we were snowbound on Wednesday, Hadley kept me company while I changed the sheets and made all the beds. I thought she looked adorable sitting on her book basket and reading a book with her Pinky bear: 

Apparently, I need to get Hadley a reading chair!

After being snowbound all day on Wednesday, the girls were excited to play with Daddy when he got home from work:

They made a Daddy sandwich...

...and pretended Daddy was a horse:

The girls wanted to weigh themselves in our bathroom:

Savannah, who will turn 9 in 3 weeks, weighed 74.2 lbs:

Hadley (3) weighed 32 lbs:

Over the next 9 months, Hadley needs to gain 8 lbs, so she can ride in a booster seat when she turns 4 (and is 40 lbs.):

Snow Day!

No school today or tomorrow (and probably no school on Friday or Saturday)! So far, we've gotten about 5 inches of snow (which is a big deal for us in NC), and it's still snowing. It's been a good day for sleeping in, watching TV, and playing in the snow!


 Hadley was excited when Tal got home from work today!

Tasting snowflakes

It started snowing at 9 A.M. this morning, and it snowed big snowflakes all day. It was so pretty!
