The kids are back to school

The girls managed to get out the door on time this morning even though we got up a half hour late. They are on the bus heading to school. :-)

Remember the snowman that was made on Thursday?...

Here he is with his wife yesterday...

The kids had a lot of fun yesterday making snow forts in the deep snow. Zach loves being outside with Zoe and Emily. Eleanor likes to play outside, too, but she never lasts as long as her siblings. Usually one of the kids comes in crying at some point because of a fight, but they got along great yesterday.

I did a lot of baking/cooking yesterday. I helped Zoe make cinnamon rolls in the morning...not the from scratch kind like Matt made, but the open the can and stick it in the oven kind. Zach wanted cake for his Family Home Evening treat, so I baked my first cake from scratch. It was pretty good. The kids helped decorate it. The H is hard to see, but it says FHE.

I also made macaroni and cheese for lunch and pizza for dinner. I have no plans to cook anything today.

On Sunday afternoon, Zoe made a diorama about the creation. She used it for her lesson last night. She did such a great job!


Here is a random picture of Eleanor and Noah. It is so sweet!


I have a sore on my tongue and my throat is a bit sore, but I got a lot of sleep last night and I am motivated to get some cleaning done today.

Looks like a very good FHE. All that snow, however, not so much fun!

I'm glad you got some sleep. It was making me tired to read about your last few nights.

Aren't you glad they're finally back in school?!

I hope you can catch up on your rest now. :)

At least the kids are enjoying the snow. We haven't made a snowman yet this year, I better get to it.

Hope you caught up on some rest today. :)

That is so much snow! It is so pretty. I probably shouldn't mention it is almost 60 degrees here right now... I bet you are happy to have the kids back to school, that was a long break! I love the snowmen (snowman and snowwoman?) cake, and diorama!

Sometimes I wish I lived where it snowed...then I see pictures like yours and think that it's nice to drive to the snow to play, but I don't have to deal with it on a daily basis!

I hope you get some good rest!

I love that picture of Noah! Hahaha! So cute.

Things have been melting around here a lot lately... I hope Maine can catch up soon. Today our high was 40!
