Thursday grin

I thought Sydney looked so cute this morning so I snapped a quick photo before we headed out. This tunic/dress was a gift from our good friend Ellen. She gave it to us with leopard print leg warmers, but I think I'll save those for a non-daycare day! :-)

Quality Time & SNOW!

This week is kind of a repeat of last week, except with a LOT more of the fluffy white stuff --- 18 inches of it at our house! I ventured out this morning to take a few shots. If I went up and down my driveway in this crazy snow a bunch of times, it would probably be equivalent to a decent workout on the treadmill, but a lot more fun.
Sydney was created to be an awesome snow day baby, I think! She woke up this morning at 9:00, and she is so great at entertaining herself, taking naps, and just enjoying the day. I think we've read almost every book we own, but we are managing to stay busy and it really is such a treat to have so much time with my little gal. I took this first picture as soon as I heard her making noise this morning. I wish I could always let her sleep as long as she wanted!
And here is my snow bunny after I got her dressed, before she enjoyed her breakfast. I don't think I know how to work a full week anymore. Working a couple days and then being off a few days is much more my style :-)
Randall, of course, has worked every day, and that is the only thing I would change about having these days at home. I know he would agree!!

Children are like snowflakes --- no two are alike

Children are also like snowflakes in that I've spent a lot of time with both this week! Tomorrow will be my and Sydney's third snow day home together, and it has been wonderful, aside from worrying about Randall as he drives on the snow and ice. Our schedule has been: eat, sleep, play, eat, sleep, play. No complaints here!

With snow days also comes interesting methods of staying entertained, and not all of the ideas have come from me. This is what happens when playing with the tupperware is simply not enough.

I cannot explain to you how fun this was to her! The best part was playing peekaboo behind the closed cabinet door.
