Asking for prayers for my family. My Step-Grandfather passed away Monday night, and my Grandpa Dennison is still in the hospital recovering from surgery. It's been a rough week for Mom and Wayne, and I ask that you pray for strength for them through this difficult time. Thank you!

Snow Day with Auntie

We didn't get our warm up until last night, so I did have 7 kids yesterday. We had a great time, and I would do it again in a heartbeat! Justin did great, and the kids all wanted to snuggle with him. The big kids all played outside in the snow, and for dinner they made their own pizzas. I was thankful that the little boys ate all the sweets I had been baking all week! My favorite quote of the day came from Drew (shocker!!). "Auntie, what's that on the plate? Ohhhhh, it's pupcakes!".

Snowed In

The kids and I are snowed in. I haven't driven anywhere since Sunday. Monday was a holiday, and school has been canceled the last three days. Tuesday was the PERFECT snow day. The snow was fluffy and it wasn't too cold. The kids played with their friends in the snow. Then the wind came yesterday. A very cold Northeaster that dropped us down to 9 degrees (-9 with the wind chill). Of course one of my pellet stoves quit working, and Dan went off to work. I'm too cheap to have a repairman out, when I know Dan can fix it. So we are relying on space heaters.

We have been keeping busy, and surprisingly the kids don't have Cabin Fever. I have been trying new recipes from Pinterest, and they are good......not so good for my waistline. I am so thankful for my stockpile of groceries, and the ability to stay home with the kids. It's supposed to warm up to 32 today, but it's still only 18 degrees. I'm thinking we may not have school again tomorrow. I'm babysitting my nephews tomorrow, but if there's no school, that will add my niece and my own kids to the mix. 7 kids, ages 11 to 7 weeks. Praying for a warm up and school tomorrow!

Snow Day for the Snows

A Snow day for the Snows. Dan saw the neighbor kids making a huge snowman, and tried to compete. Lets just say he lost. To his defense, there were about a dozen kids working on the other snowman. What a fun day! And as Lily says, "There is no better day than a snow day with Daddy home!".
