Snow & Fun with Grandma and Grandpa

The kids were so excited about the snow we got last week. They got to play in it a little with my mom and then went out again this weekend. Justin's parents were here helping us finish the other part of the basement!! THANK YOU! The kids had fun making sugar cookies with grandma and eating the icing!

Quote of the Day

Clayton: "Mommy, did you have a power sneeze?"
Me: "WHAT?"
Clayton: "When you sneezed steam came out like the power plants"

Monday Funday!

I have been bad about posting and even worse about typing anything. We have been super busy, which I think I say every time I post. I just got back from a week in St. Louis working. Then we had some basement finishing that happened this weekend thanks to grandma and grandpa. We have lots of plans this week and then we head to Indianapolis on Saturday for a little overnight trip to go to the Children's Museum. The kids are really excited.

Today is a holiday for me! Love these days when I can half ignore my i-phone and email. We started out the day with some painting. Then we headed to the barber to have Clayton's hair cut/fixed. (That will be another post) Our next stop was the bowling alley to have some fun with some of the mom's in the Peoria Mom's Club I belong to. (GREAT ORGANIZATION!) I didn't get great pics at the bowling alley as it isn't easy bowling by yourself with a two little kids. Clayton did awesome! He got second place beating 2 adults and another toddler. :) Mommy won :) He starts his All Star Sports class this evening. No pressure, but a scholarship would sure be nice.

Maddie wasn't especially excited to have her pic taken today. Had to get one though of her in the cute vest from grandma and grandpa and her awesome Toms she got for Christmas from Anna Banana and Uncle David!

Love my new appliances! I have to say I don't know how I cooked without gas before.
