Weekend Recap & Snowday #10

We had blizzard like conditions this weekend that kept us stuck inside alllll weekend long!  It was nice to have everyone home and a fairly low key couple of days.  Does anyone else feel like it is harder to stay caught up on things though when you are home instead of on the go?!

Lots of snow, 50+mph winds, and some ice resulted in....snow day #10 yesterday!  Seriously, I used to joke that we might be in school until July, but now I'm actually a bit concerned!

Nothing says Saturday morning more than some pancakes around our house--except Treyton requested chocolate chip waffles.  Add an extra tablespoon of butter and ta-da, you've got waffles!  Fun fact--Gavin doesn't love pancakes and will not eat them for supper.  We almost always have breakfast for dinner if I know he is going to be gone. :-)
Saturday morning started off nice and icy so we were pretty slow moving!  I attempted to get some pictures of each kiddo.  I had way more out takes than anything half way decent.  There may have even been a seat in time out occupied at one point and time.
Any guesses on who ended up in time out?!? ;-)
Mya chewed on ALL the toys!  I love you Mya but I don't love that all of our toys have teeth marks on them!
She really is such a great dog!  But I'd be lying if I said I wasn't excited for her to lose some of her puppy tendencies.  I feel like I have a 4th child most days.
Mya is also losing all of her baby teeth currently.  I didn't really know this was a thing but we have found them EVERY WHERE!  I am hoping that this is why she is wanting to chew on every thing so badly right now.
Treyton lives and breathes construction and pays attention to Gavin's and his employees' every move.  I went through all of our toys after Christmas wanting to get rid of stuff and I honestly couldn't get rid of any of his diggers or tools because he plays with them all.
My shelves become his work bench regularly.
And every surface in our house is "broken" at some point in the day and needs to be fixed.  Thankfully we have Mr. Fixit on call!
We gave Treyton a hair cut.  His hair never really lays down so he ends up with a really out of control, bed head looking fro.  It needed to be cut like a month ago but we finally carved out a nap time to get it done.  He looks sooo much better!!
Grandma Linda and Grandpa Brad stopped over Saturday to see the munchkins!  I know I say it all of the time, but we are so fortunate to be surrounded by so much family!
Our girls are really into giving open mouthed kisses currently.  Especially to each other!  Taylor may be a bit guilty of letting her tongue stick out. Lol!
The girls LOVE this Minnie bike!  They ride it backwards so they can hang on to the handle and love when Treyton pushes them fast.  I swear I will have a full head of gray hair soon.
When we moved out of the shop and into our house, we left an entire trailer full of totes and random things.  Sometime this fall, the trailer full of stuff go moved over to our garage and it has just sat there.  Being snowed in gave us the opportunity to go through it all and decided what we were keeping and what we needed to move into our storage room.
A lot of it was stuff that our parents had given to us from their houses.  We took trips down memory lane as we found our old year books, photo albums, and college memorabilia.
It felt good to have our garage cleaned and a rather big task checked off! And the girls enjoyed playing in the basement while we got things moved downstairs.
This picture doesn't do the weather we had justice.  There were times when we looked out our window and couldn't see the basketball hoop.  All of our major highways were shut down due to being impassable with bigger drifts than I've ever seen.
Gavin left like 5 minutes before I took this picture and his tracks were already blown shut.  My dad is a lineman and worked through the night and struggled to even get to the people that were out of power.  It was crazy!
Mother Nature still hasn't forgiven us and wants me to attempt to teach 22 nine year olds in June apparently.  I LOVE LOVE LOVE getting extra time at home with my kids though.  I know I will think differently in June when we could be playing outside.
Treyton got to plow with Gavin.  It's amazing how quickly he can get a "work sweatshirt" on and find his hats and boots when he gets to "go to work" with dad.
I got a workout in during the girls' morning nap and was reminded why I like working out at 4:30 every morning.  #sodistracted
Our girls are really into books right now, which my teacher heart just loves. 

I hope you have a great week and that you are unburied from all of the snow!  Make sure you come back tomorrow as I will be linking up with some other bloggers!!
