365 Project: Week Two

{January 8th}

19 years ago, on this day, my parents gave me an amazing gift: my horse, Cherokee! He is still a part of our family! We cheered on the Steelers in the playoffs. It was a close game that ended in a disappointing loss. We took down Christmas, and put up Valentine's Day decor!

Monday already?!? Lexie had a playdate at the library, after preschool. Lexie took a very rare nap. She actually fell asleep mid-bite! I took down Lily's bassinet in our room and replaced it with a portable crib. My baby is growing so fast!

I babysat all day! What's one extra kid when you already have three? I don't have any pictures, but that evening, I had a moms night out with Tracy, Amy, and Amy. We had dinner in Pittsburgh. It was so nice to go out with friends! It was a bit of an adventure on the way home. We couldn't find the car in the parking garage, and then Tracy's GPS system took us to a mall on the opposite side of the river that we needed to be on! Always an adventure!

Wednesday was a low key day. Grant was home from work, due to his cold. After taking Lexie to and from school, we hung out at home.

Dylan stayed home from school, thanks to his bloodshot eyes. Later that morning, they had cleared up, but I just kept him home, considering he never misses school. That afternoon, we visited my parents and had dinner with them and my sister and nephews.

This was a cold, snowy, windy day. The day started out with a 2 hour delay for Dylan and the roads continued to get worse throughout the day. Driving was an adventure. I was thrilled to finally come back home after picking Lexie up from school! By late afternoon, we had gotten about 3 inches of snow and the temperature never made it out of the teens! We decided to skip Grant's company Christmas party and chose to spend the evening with our best friends instead. At midnight, I looked outside, and the roads were clear. We bundled up and were ready to walk out the door around 1 AM, and noticed that the roads were no longer visible and the snow was coming down so hard you could barely see in front of you! So we had an unexpected sleepover at their house and the kids were thrilled!

We left my best friend's house around 10:00 in the morning. As soon as we got home, the kids decided to go play in the snow. Lily got to "enjoy" snow for the first time! With the exception of Dylan, we all took naps that afternoon. That evening, Lily tried her mesh feeder out for the first time. She loved it! The banana was gone in no time. Shortly after, we had some friends over to watch the playoff games. It was a fun night!

  3. Who falls asleep eating Oreos? That is too funny! I love these pictures - Lily gets cuter every day :) I wish we still had Jackson in our room. I had to move both of our boys out way before I was ready because they are such light sleepers!

  10. Beautiful horse! My cousin has a horse. I love love love the snowsuit! I was hoping for more snow to take those shots so I waited. It's only January, right?? Who knows, this weather is so weird! I didn't know you had trouble getting home! Next time call me! Lol (Queen of getting lost but if I know the way, I'm all good. Haha!) And yay for unexpected sleepovers with besties! Unexpected always seems to work out better than planned....
