the big snow!
but all this white stuff played a role this time, too!! it was BEAUTIFUL and fun. it was one of those snows that came FAST and HARD and there wasn't even a THOUGHT if pat and the kids would go to school/work this past thursday. we got 15" of snow in a few hours and everything shutdown. it was great!
i spent the afternoon getting our valentine's day party ready. (well, i spent 2 DAYS getting it ready!) this was our 3rd annual party. three years ago, when i started it, the kids school had banned parties and food and treats. so i threw them a party at home - just for fun and because, in the past, i had had a bad attitude about valentines day. i just didn't like it. thought it was cheesy and hallmark-y. well, i decided to change it for our family and throw them a party because i love them like crazy.
year 1 and year 2.
a bit random. but my friend, courtney, posted about this contact paper...so i put it on the piece of furniture in our foyer and it's been so fun to see the kids notes on it! it's "chalkboard" contact paper...and you write on it with these chalkboard paint markers (so it's not messy!) it's so fun!!
i was able to get us all in a picture!! a precious memory for sure!
now i'm ready for spring!
