Did I say I was going to clean today?

I wanted to get the living room dusted and vacuumed today and I was prepared for many interruptions and figured it would take me all day. I knew my visiting teacher was coming over for a visit and I knew it was going to be warm outside today and it would be a perfect day to play outside with the kids, so I figured in these activities as well to my long day of cleaning the living room. I managed to get a few pictures dusted and the top of the computer armoire dusted and I glued the flute back on to Zoe's angel ornament before the Booths arrived for a visit. They are fun to talk with and I can usually count on Judy bringing over some type of yummy food. She brought us some chicken soup, which is needed and is so good! After they left, Kate went down for a nap and it was lunch time, so I decided to put off my cleaning until Kate woke up because sometimes she'll sleep through the vacuum running, but sometimes she won't. I ate some soup and then decided to take Eleanor and Zach outside while Kate was sleeping. I'm glad we went out because we had a lot of fun!

Here is the start to our snowman.

Zach had fun adding snow to the snowman. Eleanor was content when the snowman had 3 sections and she moved on to make snow angels.

The finished snowman. We have a snowman kit, but it was in the bedroom where Kate was sleeping.

Sledding was the next fun activity!

Back to snow angels.

And here is Zach sitting in his "snow chair".

It was so warm outside today! I can handle being outside in the snow when it feels like Spring.

And I will end this post by saying that what I accomplished before the Booths arrived this morning was the only productive cleaning I did today. There is always tomorrow. It's supposed to rain tomorrow, so it's a better day to be inside cleaning anyway.

You are such a fun mom! How great that you spent the time out in the snow & sunshine having fun with the kids instead...much more important than dusting!!
