Snow Pretty to Spring Ahead

In the span of 36 hours we went from no snow to lots of it, then back to no snow! I can tell Spring is on the way!

We have had such a lazy week, thanks to the stomach virus that attacked our household. With the exception of going to my OB appointment on Thursday and visiting my parents yesterday, I haven't left the house. We're usually so busy, so it was nice to take a little break, even if it was due to being sick!

Lexie got sick on Thursday morning, but has been puke-free since. Phew! My skinny minny lost quite a few pounds, though. I'm going to have to share my Ensure! She is still laying around more than usual, but is definitely better! She's even smiling in her sleep!

I mentioned earlier in the week that Dylan was back to normal!

The weather has warmed up a bit, so we haven't had any snow on the ground in a while. On Friday morning, we woke up to at least 6 inches of snow. It was absolutely gorgeous! It clung to everything, and the snow was so heavy that the tree branches touched the ground. I wish I would have taken pictures right away. It was like a winter wonderland!

Dylan had fun waiting for the bus in all the snow, and after he left, Lexie played in it for a few minutes.

That evening, Grant and I worked on a project. We really needed to get a bigger dining room table, so we bought one. We decided to save some money, and assemble it ourselves! It took us four hours, but we did it! We absolutely love our new table and chairs!

Yesterday, it warmed up so much that all of the snow began to melt. By early afternoon, it was all gone!

The kids were eager to see my parents yesterday, so we spent the day with them!

We decided to spend the day at home today. The kids got dressed, but Grant and I are still in our pajamas! It was a nice, lazy way to end our lazy week!

Early tomorrow morning, we get to "see" our little baby! We are so excited to see Nugget again, and to find out if he/she is healthy and growing well. Although it's a bit tempting to find out the sex this time, we're going to stick to the original plan of not finding out. All I want is a happy, healthy baby!

  1. I am glad Dylan is on the mend, and Lexie is headed there now. Asher couldn't get over his sickness either.
    I love the new table!! You didn't even tell us how many "big" words you had to use to assemble it!
