We did a whole bunch of NOTHING this week because of a little snow and ice that we got.
The snow was supposed to come in Monday around noon. They cancelled school Sunday night around 8pm! Yep, they cancelled school because of the threat of snow! In a sad situation, our county had a high school student die in a car crash last week because of some ice on the roads. Since that just happened I think they were worried about the high school kids driving home in snow.
What they predicted did not happen. I had heard we could get as much as 6-8 inches. It snowed very lightly all day long and the kids really should have gone to school on Monday. Monday night the snow picked up a little bit and then it turned into sleet and some freezing rain overnight. Because of the ice, school was cancelled Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and we had a two hour delay on Friday.
Everything we had scheduled this week was obviously cancelled. Instead we did a lot of coloring, playing games, watercolor painting, play with play-doh, and we went sledding one time outside.
The biggest news of the week is that Lindy started sleeping in a big-girl bed! She’d been playing in Will’s bed a lot lately so I asked her if she wanted a big-girl bed. She said yes so Wednesday night I switched her bed (again – we tried it before Christmas and she’d have nothing to do with it). The first night I started out sitting by her bed, eventually moved over by the door, and eventually out the door. We’ve had to hang out outside her door each night but she is doing pretty well. The first night she woke up twice and wanted her blankets back on. The second night she woke up a TON. She did get out of her bed one time too. I got her back in bed and let her cry. Last night she slept the entire night without ever waking up. So Will decided to wake up. I swear they tag-team. She has also started sleeping with a pillow. She finally realized that it is pretty neat that Will had a pillow. I think she is done with the crib – no turning back now! One step towards being a big girl.
The temperatures are finally on the rise and the sun is out so we are hoping all this winter stuff goes away! We live in North Carolina, we’re not supposed to get all this mess!
Here’s pictures of what we did this week.
Last Sunday GrandBob, Suzette, Ed, Jamie, and Molly all came over for a birthday dinner for Drew and I. It turned into a dance party!I made the kids hot chocolate for the first time ever.

Our driveway had just enough ice coating on it that we could sled.What movie does this remind you of?This is daddy telling her NOT to put her tongue on the light pole.
