Friday Fun

It's already Friday again.  This was a fast week.  

We woke up to a tiny bit of snow on Sunday.  My kids were so excited.  We don't see a lot of snow here in Arkansas.  It snowed a ton back in 2011 and hasn't snowed hardly at all since. My kids haven't seen  much snow so it doesn't take a lot to excite them.  

We were home Monday.  We had invited our friend Joseph over to play and right as I left to pick him up, it started snowing.  It didn't snow a ton but enough to play in.  The kids had a great time.  Even Will Holden (who doesn't look happy here).  

We got the call that afternoon that school was out for the next day! Tuesday was Harper's actual birthday.  It was a nice surprise to not have school.  We spent the day at home in our pajamas.  We got out twice but both times we stayed in our pj's and just added coats.  It was a wind chill of negative 15 that day.  NEGATIVE FIFTEEN.  Apparently I moved to MN and didn't know it.  

I have made it my goal to finally get my house cleaned out and purged this year.  I made myself a schedule and put a room on my list for each week.  The big jobs I gave myself two weeks.  My family room was on my list for this week so since we were snowed in, I got it all done! Next week is the pantry and I got that done also.  It was a MESS! 

Wednesday the kids went back to school and I had a fun morning.  There was a forum in town for the Walmart Toy buyers and a lot of toy companies.  I was on a panel of influencers and moms who answered questions on what toys I buy and how I'm influenced in those decisions.  It was a lot of fun. I got to hang out with my friend Stephanie who runs Arkansas women bloggers.  She's so fun.  

This boy has started asking "why" constantly.  So that's fun.  I spend a lot of time saying "because......" these days.  

Yesterday, My friend Susan spoke at a MOPS group that my friend Sharon helps with so I tagged along.  Will Holden went and I was so worried he would lose it when he had to go to the childcare (he is SUPER attached to me so he still cries at the church nursery - although he doesn't do that at preschool anymore - he loves it there).  But he walked right in and had the BEST time.  So that was a minor miracle and made me so happy! 

This afternoon, he and I went to Walmart while the girls were at gymnastics and on a whim I decided to buy pull ups and a little potty and just see what happens.  I didn't potty train either girl until after 3 and it was very easy so I don't really pressure myself.  I'm certain he won't start kindergarten in diapers.  :-) 

Happy weekend!
