Our week: Snow and Grandma!

Anna and Grandma

This week we got to enjoy a visit from Grandma! She and Anna became fast friends – they are both laughing at Johnny’s antics in this picture, I think.

A snow day gave all the kids extra time to play with Grandma – and left our yard looking like a fairy tale.

My beloved Japanese Maple kept its leaves, even through the snow storm!

Anna, Johnny, and Lily all decided that they love the IKEA abacus I bought a couple years ago, finally justifying the purchase (based off of fond childhood memories).

That rug looks dirty no matter how many times I vacuum it.

I’m on the recovery end (I hope) of a nasty throat/sinus thing. Having my mom around to play with the kids was perfect timing. Mike also gave me a break on Saturday by taking the kids on a snow walk in a nearby forest. An unplanned snow walk on the way back from dropping off my mom, which is why Lily is hat-free, glove-free, and boot-free. She still had a blast.

  1. How wonderful that your Mom could visit! We have this abacus too – I realized too late after buying it that it’s not very useful as an abacus for young children because of the way its colors are designed. Now, however, Anna has fun with it.

    Anna is getting so strong! And Lily is so cute in her hatless, gloveless, bootless state. Must have been a fun walk!

    That photo of Grandma and Anna steals the show, though. What a cute pair!!

    Hope you’re feeling completely 100% well soon!!!

  3. I’m so glad you had a visit from your mom and I’m so sorry you were sick! I hope you are feeling better now! I love Anna’s sweater in the top picture – did you make that? Your yard is absolutely stunning and makes me long for snow!

  4. That yellow outfit is precious. Emry had a similar one when she was a baby, it was pink and she looked so adorable in it. I kept it of course :)
