Lately, we've been watching the snow fall, staying inside and keeping warm.
Lately, we've been getting bundled up and playing in the unusually large amount of snow that has fallen.
Lately, we've been "stirring" the snow with sticks and laughing.
Lately, we've been having tummy time and we've been rolling around!
Lately, we've been snowed in and it's been a good excuse to have good time at home together.
Over the last few days, we've gotten a crazy amount of snow. I've really enjoyed taking Judah out in the snow and showing him how to make snow balls. We also built a snowman and Jeremiah played outside with Judah one day after he got home from work. I think Dads have a special talent for playing with kids in the snow because Judah was laughing WAY harder when they were out playing than when I played outside with him.
Today was the first time we left the house in 3 days and it felt great to get out. I love the snow but, I also like to get out! We hit Target and Fred Meyer and got some shopping done. I subscribe to a bunch of those "coupon" sites and today I brought a bunch of coupons with me to Target, to get all the FREE stuff. I've used coupons for awhile but, I haven't actually tried to score all the free deals before and it was really fun! I had to be really organized though because, it's hard to keep everything straight while having two little ones with me.
My new Ergo baby carrier came in the mail a few days ago and I'm totally loving it. I love the Moby too but, the Ergo is better for when we're out shopping or on a really long walk. I wore her in it today at Target. It was nap time and had a great nap while we did our shopping. It's fun to discover what "works" for me with having a little baby and a young preschooler.
To wrap this up, here is a verse I've been loving lately:
Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us.
