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.
How was your week?
