Yes - Snowpocalypse 2011 is what they are calling the ice storm we are experiencing here in the mid-west. We have been getting ice for 24 hours now (about). Many people are having power outages or are afraid their trees are going to fall into their homes from the weight of the ice on the limbs. Highways are shut down, many places of work are closed, schools are not in session.....pretty much only go out if you absolutely have to right now.
Ryan got to stay home today with us & will get to stay home tomorrow as well. We finally got to really clean the house today which we don't really get to do often because I just don't have the time during the day just yet & on the weekends we are both either too tired or just want to spend time with the kids so we do just that.
On to the kids!!! :)~
Declan is so stinkin' cute - I just can't get enough of him. Even when he is crabby he is cute. Yesterday he took off his pajamas & didn't want to wear anything but his diaper & flip flops.....
Apparently he didn't get the memo that there was an ice storm upon us! He is just as ready for spring as the rest of us. I am looking forward to being able to take the kids on a walk or just out in the back yard! SO ready for spring. Not to mention seeing all of the pretty tulips (my favorite flower!).
Declan has been learning what it is to be a boy these past few days. He has taken more stumbles than ever - here is a picture of what happens when he falls into the air return vent in our hallway:
He wasn't very happy after it happened. Then today he was having WAY too much fun on his rocking horse - it "bucked" him off...haha. He just rocked too far backward & landed on his back with the horse on top of him. It was a funny site to see but he wasn't very happy about it. I think his pride was hurt more than anything - he got back on it soon after he calmed down.
I know there are more stumbles to be had - its just what its like being a boy!!
Averley - she is still growing like crazy. I love seeing her smile. Here she is eating the horses ear (yes..the horse Declan got "bucked" off):
See how big she is getting!! UGH! I just want her to stay little, lol. Not really but I am enjoying every single moment of her being not as heavy as Declan - ha!
