Snow Week

What a crazy week we've had! The kids only went to school one full day this week - Thursday.  They went two hours on Wednesday and three hours on Friday.

Monday was a full on ice day and we couldn't have gotten out if we'd had to, but everything was cancelled Sunday night in some preemptive thing that made me laugh.
Tuesday was fine by afternoon, but in the morning Jory couldn't get out.  We made S'mores on Monday with girlscout cookies and marshmallows that Mrs. Hollingsworth gave us.
Abgail dressed up a lot
Wednesday was a delay start.  The roads were fine that day, but it was raining and below freezing so they were being cautious.  Jory made it to work on time without issue.

On Wednesday afternoon Abigail spent her Target gift card that Uncle Doug sent her.  She picked out a Minnie Mouse shopping cart with Minnie Mouse food.  She LOVES it so much.  She loves all things Minnie.

This was Wednesday morning.  I laugh.
I was really afraid we would early dismiss today and I didn't really want to deal with it, but we sent the kids to school today anyway and wow, oh wow, did we deal with it.  We have got lots of snow and ice with it still coming down.  The roads are awful and the traffic is horrendous.  It took me an hour to get to Abigail's school and back. 
The three of us are safely home now and just waiting on Daddy.

The last few days

On Thursday, Abigail had a field trip to a Stephen Fite concert in Flower Mound.  She had a great time and her teacher said she really participated.  It was at a church where one of my friend's sons goes to preschool and she texted me that Abigail looked so cute.
That morning my friend Lindsey visited with her two year old twins and we had a sweet visit
Right after that, Katie Grace went to the Emergency Room and I picked Jackson up from school. 
This was when we were waiting for Aaron's bus to get home

Katie was admitted to the hospital for a few days and Jackson doesn't have school on Friday so he and I hung out.  I had some things to return to the Disney Store at Grapevine Mills and I popped into Gymboree and bought this for Abigail.


She had a fantastic week so she earned ice cream and an early pick up on Friday.

 That worked out okay for Jackson, too
 Then he settled into Abigail's bed for a good long nap
On Saturday after breakfast Jory went to work a bit and the kids and I ran around.  After naps, we went to visit him at his office


We went to dinner at an Asian restaurant we have been wanting to try and this amazing bird cage was by our table

Aaron loves Asian food.

Before church on Sunday
 Working on writing her letters while she waited for us to get ready
It was not raining, but the forecast had said it might and you always want to be prepared

We are prepared for school to be cancelled tomorrow.  It's a waiting game and we probably won't know until tomorrow, but the sleet has started.  It's cold, for sure.

More of Abigail's Birthday

 Abigail woke up on Sunday doing a Birthday Dance in her bed!  We were watching her on the monitor.  When I went in she was so excited that it was her birthday and she was 4!

 Aaron got in on it too!


Before church we had a Birthday Breakfast at Old West

The kids got Valentine's money they gave at church

After church.  She chose this purple dress to wear on her birthday, but I wouldn't let her wear it to breakfast because it's not ours.  So she changed in the parking lot of Old West.

 The Elliotts gave her a new back pack she was so excited to take to school




Cookie Party at School on Tuesday



Love this Four Year Old!
