It finally happened!
We got a REAL snow last night!
The kids are home from school, the ground is covered in INCHES of snow, and everyone has had an amazing day playing outside and lounging around the house.
Once upon a time, there was a dog (Livie) who loved to destroy toys. No plush, ball, or rope was spared. New toys were frequently purchased only to be devoured within minutes of being released to Miss Livie Lou.
Today, while admiring Livie loving on one of her many "babies" (toys,) I couldn't help but laugh at the memory.
Livie now cherishes her toys. She is rarely seen without a stuffed animal by her side. She carries them around, cleans them, sleeps with them, and even has a special raccoon that she always uses while giving birth. <3
Doesn't matter the weather... early or late... indoors or outdoors...
we are all always down for a game of fetch!
It's been so cold this week, most games have occurred in our living room and hallway.
"No throwing balls in the house" is definitely not a rule in this house! Ha! Ha!
We are so ready for warmer weather!
The weatherman predicted up to 7 inches of snow for Stillwater. We stocked up on bread, snow ice cream ingredients, new gloves, and an extra pack of bully sticks to get us through the storm... And we got a nice dusting. I was really looking forward to a big snow, but we'll take what we can get.
The girls love the snow!
Happy New Year!!
2020 is off to a great start. My resolution is to get in more steps. So, we are enjoying a lot of family walks, hikes, and sunshine! :)
My, oh my, what a busy month! I am so behind on the blog and emails.
It's been a month full of adventures, family time, and holiday celebrations! It has been a beautiful end to a wonderful year. I hope all of our families had a fantastic holiday season and we wish you all the best in the upcoming year!
We are looking forward to 2020!
Merry Christmas, from all of our girls... and baby Thomas!
I'm not sure how it's possible, but we have officially entered the final month of the year!
Time flies when you're having fun.
Lola watching The Grinch with her girl... Seriously, this dog has no idea she's not a human!
Happy Thanksgiving, Everyone!
I hope your holiday is full of love, family, friends, and food.
If you ask me what I'm thankful for this year, these kids, those pups, and the three un-pictured family members would certainly be at the top of my list. Followed by caffeine and naps. :)
Today's adventure included a "walk through the wildness" as my kiddos like to call it. We made our way through the trails, to each of the ponds and followed the creek until we were all too tired to walk back... and then we walked back! Ha! Ha!
I love this time of year! It is so easy to spend the entire day outside when the weather isn't too hot or too cold! I wish I would have taken more photos.
After the late night of trick or treating and the early morning getting the big girls to school, we are spending today being way too lazy, allowing way too much screen time, and eating way too much candy! We'll try to be more productive tomorrow.
I love these little couch potatoes!
