Winter Mix

I guess the past few day's of 40 degrees was just a tease before another winter storm hits. Tomorrow we are suppose to have an ice/snow storm, and that is what if forecasted for the next few days. I guess I am glad we got out of the house yesterday!

It looks like we will be stuck in the house for the next few days. I can do a little bit of snow, but ice scares me and I would rather just stay in. Which totally sucks though because today, Monday, and Tuesday are Tim's day's off and I usually try and do family things. I know someone who is happy about all this winter junk, Tim! He prefers to stay in playing computer games. UGH I am NOT looking forward to this!

Back to yesterday, I have a funny story. We went to the mall because I had to go to the store to get diapers and stuff, so I figured while we were out we would go play at the mall.

While walking back to the play area from eating lunch Timothy out of nowhere just falls over onto Taylor's stroller. Her stroller has this little piece on the side of it that I am not even sure what it is for, but anyway it was sticking up and cut him. It's a pretty long cut and he cried. But once back at the play are I kept finding him with crowds of kids around him, shirt up, showing off his battle wound! The kids were ohh and ahh, asking him if it hurts, touching it. Kids, HILARIOUS!

Taylor was all over the place crawling, pulling herself up. I am sure it won't be long before she is running around with the boys. Not sure how I am going to keep up with all three of them, but I am sure I will somehow.

So with the possibility of being stuck in the house for the next few day, I need help with activities to do. What kinds of things do you do with your kids in the winter, when it storms and you are stuck inside, on rainy days? We do the usual like play-doh, coloring, movies....but I need more ideas! Specifically more geared towards a 4 and 2 year old. HELP a mama out!

off to get ready for the day, I have some lady coming by to take my maternity clothes. I am a little sad to see them go, but really I have no need for them and could use the space they are taking up for other things. Plus if I can help someone else who needs them than I will.

We also need to get our taxes done today, my mom does them. We are suppose to go by there this afternoon, so hopefully we can get that done. And then I really have to convince Tim to go to the grocery store. This weekend is our normal one to grocery shop, because of pay day. But I am sure today we will be fighting the crowds because of the snow storm. Tim doesn't want to go and would rather go tomorrow. I know that won't happen.

Do you freak out about winter storms and run out to the store?

Have a great Sunday!

Look at those pretty blue eyes :-)

Kids are so funny, love the mall story.

Movies are always my go-to for stormy days. Watercolor painting is a good one, too. Sometimes I'll get scrapbook paper and cut it into all different shapes and let them make collages. Good luck!

hahaha, gotta love children! ;] Maia tends to take off running the second we put her down, so I've started setting her down where I know I'll find her 2 minutes later haha.
