Post-snow Sunday

31 Jan

We actually did make it out of the house today and the roads were much better than yesterday. We treated ourselves to a yummy Mexican lunch, did some shopping and I even made it to the gym (trying to keep up with my resolution of at least 3 days per week). I think we have had enough snow for the year and I am ready for warm weather. And, I am tired of the snow ruining our plans- last month it ruined our date night and my cookie party. Yesterday we missed a friend’s party because the roads were bad and our babysitter could not make it. Darn snow.

Since we had to entertain ourselves inside for most of the weekend- Hadley buried herseslf in toys and managed to spead them all over our living room.

She has mastered walking with the car- we must have helped her turn around the car 50 times today. She got her exercise walking back and forth but has not quite figured out turning around. She gets quite upset when our sliding glass door gets in the way of all the fun.

Also, read some books and banged on the piano.

Kerry became the perfect object to crawl over and pulling his hair and ears was very funny.

After all that excitement- it was early to bed! We noticed today that Hadley now has eight teeth in various stages of coming through her gums. She has been a trooper this weekend and until she gnawed on my hand today- we had no idea the new ones had popped through. Hope everyone had a great weekend.

Swimming, Snowing and Shoveling

30 Jan

We started off the morning with a prediction of snow and as we drove to Hadley’s first swim lesson we saw the first flakes. As the swimming lesson started, it was coming down harder and by the end the sidewalks, cars and streets were covered in snow. Now, it is still coming down and I am going to predict that prediction of 2-4 inches is wrong.

But, before we talk about snow- we need to talk about swimming. Hadley did great for the first 25 minutes of the 30 minute class. When we registered her for the class- our concern was it fell right in the middle of her morning nap but we decided she would be fine. She feel asleep on the way to the rec center but perked up when she saw all the kids.

I was informed after this photo that camera are not allowed until the last class. What???? No pictures of swimming until April?? Oh well.

Anyway, Hadley and Kerry enjoyed themselves in the pool and are looking forward to next week. After all the excitement of swimming and a big lunch- Hadley feel sound asleep. Probably a good thing considering we are not doing anything else today since the roads have not been plowed and we are kind of stuck at the top of the hill.

Hope everyone is staying warm!
