Weekend Shenanigans - Sledding with My Homies

Sunday, February 22, 2015

We started the weekend off with a 2 hour delay on Friday for freezing cold temperatures.  If you're a teacher then you understand how fabulous these delays are in the teacher world.  There's no day to make up and you get 2 extra hours to actually plan and work!  We have another one tomorrow so I'm seriously going to be caught up on work for the first time since August.

You think I'm kidding?

Saturday was also supposed to be a HUGE winter storm.  Yes.  It snowed....a whopping 4 inches.  And the roads were slushy until they plowed but other than that it was fine.  Kurtis and I traded in one of Cohen's old car seats to upgrade for Lola peanut and then played for a good hour outside in the snow.  Okay, Kurtis and Cohen did with our neighbors while Lola and I played for about 20 minutes and then enjoyed the warmth of our home.  It was good to get Cohen out and let him play off some of his stink.  It's supposed to be frigid again this week so any chance to get him outside is necessary.





Sunday is for lovers my friends.  We normally stay in our jammies all day and play, eat and take naps.  It is super glorious and usually necessary after a long week.  Kurtis is still in the process of building our dining room table so Cohen, Lola and I decided to stay toasty in the basement together.  I love that anything Cohen does, Lola does it too.  That goes for his food too.  She is super stealth at stealing his food.  After a decent breakfast of fruit and biscuits and gravy, Lola decided that Cohen's pancakes sounded good too.  Don't even think about taking them away from her either or you will get the Wrath of Lola.  These fits are no joke.




Here's to another week of more (hopeful) delays and the realization that Spring is just around the corner!

How was your weekend?

  1. The cat hat is adorable! My daughter would love one like that. We haven't had school due to parent teacher conference planning. I am so jealous of your snow and sledding adventures. Winter snow passed us over here in OR.

  3. Yes, school delays are great for many reasons! I love Lola's snow outfit and I think that hat is the cutest I've seen.

  4. The sledding looks like so much fun! I can't say that I'd want to live in a cold climate, but I sure think my kids would love to be able to go sledding any day of the week.

  5. At least you all got some! We've been under watches and advisories and have gotten a big fat NADA! I would love just one snow this season! Oh well, maybe this Wednesday! It looks like you all had a great time in the snow!

  6. Looks like fun in the snow. I miss snow and NYC when I see pics like this. We don't get any here in Los Angeles.

  7. We've had a lot of playing in the snow and sledding lately, too. Out of the last 9 days, we've been snowed/iced in for 5 of them, and the other 4 were scary driving in.

  8. Woot woot on late starts :) My husband has to work remotely if that happens, ha ha, so no late starts for him, but at least he doesn't have to drive to work, there is that.

  9. It's nice to hear you're able to utilize those extra hours. The extreme weather has been such an inconvenience for people,so it's nice to hear that there's a silver lining.
