Feb Misc

Oh February.  You have been full of way too much sickness, cold weather and days off of school!  Thankfully there have been some bright spots scattered throughout but boy this has been a long month! I don't know when the last time I have felt so stir crazy from being stuck in my house.  Here are some of our memories from this month!

One morning we were going crazy in the house and the boys had been begging to see Georgia so we decided to Face time with her! 

James and H had quite a few fights as they tried to get the best spot for viewing on the phone 
My mom also sent me this picture of her later that day. What a sweetie! 
This picture is evidence of a stressful day at the house.  99 cent Zxaby kids meals and CHOCOLATE milk! What was I thinking? Lol 
Harrison likes to help clean in the nude 
Breakfast at Chick fil a on one of our canceled school days due to ice. Needless to say there wasn't much ice! 

Practicing blowing bubbles like when we are at the pool 

Another fever...
I couldn't find H and finally found him in the shower 

It looks like all I do it take my kids out to eat.  In my defense we had been stuck in the house for a WEEK when this picture was taken. And we had been sick the week before that too! And yes I am that mom that took her child with a fever to Panera to get a cookie. It's people like me that probably spread the germs around town. So sorry. 

Can you believe this is 24 hours before he had a seizure and was taken to the hospital in an ambulance?! He looks so happy and well. 
We had one wonderful Friday evening that my parents came and we went out to a late dinner.  
Snuggling with Pappy
Sick day at home with Mommy 
Painting with shaving cream. There are only so many things to do at home with a one year old. 
The flu is no fun
In typical kid fashion a few hours later he was feeling better!

James has an interesting way of playing checkers 
My new way of getting dressed in the morning. I stick them both in Harrison's crib with a bunch of books!
Grumpy pants after a nap.  Most of these selfies are taken and sent to Ryan on days he is working a lot
We had one wonderful day of sunny weather so we made the most of it

I had to take this picture so I would one day look back and laugh. Less than two hours after sweeping and moping the floor...
Ryan makes fun of me for always reading her quotes out loud but I love Lysa Terkurst!

Finger paint!

H has decided he wants to work on potty training which I am not ready for. This morning he went four times before I finally put a pull up on him so I wouldn't have to keep taking his diaper on and off! 
Just a small amount of the red paint H poured on the carpet when I wasn't looking 
Working on Legos or "Yeahgos" as Harrison calls them 

James showing off his flag he made for the Olympics at school 

We split the kids up one night and Ryan and James had a dinner date together while H and I did the same. James chose Buffalo Wild Wings. Harrison chose pizza. 

Later that night James and Ryan watched a movie and had a sleepover under the tent. It was boys only and I am okay with that!

Love these boys!

Ice and Snow

We have had some winter weather the past two weeks and in typical Southern fashion as soon as snow or ice is in the forecast school is out! Last week we woke up to this: 

A nice coating of ice over everything 
Ice is no fun. Nothing to play in and you can't go anywhere. And considering we were coming off of three weeks of sickness at our house we were pretty much done with being stuck in the house 

We started off the ice day with a little paint 
Why paint paper when you can paint your arm? 

Finished product. I like to take pictures of them so I don't have to keep everything!
James did some water color painting 
Next we went upstairs and did some exercise videos on YouTube to get some energy out
I attempted to get some stuff done and then found this- oh Harrison!

Silly boys
We had a small window of time when the ice had melted and not refrozen. Ryan was working late and we were stir crazy so we escaped to grab some 99 cent kids' meals. Yes, they are in their pajamas. At 5:00. In public. 
A week later we had some more winter weather but thankfully this was snow! So much more fun to play in!

As soon as it started coming down we went outside
James LOVED it
Harrison hated it!
Our water table had frozen over and they had a great time "chopping ice" as James said 
A couple of hours later it really started to come down 
This kid. Mad at the world about this snow
Harrison refused to cooperate with our selfie, lol

He was traumatized that his "mitt mitts" (mittens) got snow on them 

Finally got a little smile from him
Our friends across the street invited us over for a day of sledding, snowball fights, and lots of fun.

I love this picture of them all lined up together. 

Sledding down the slide 
Harrison kept saying "home home" and eventually just took off down the street. 
They closed Ryan's office early so he got to come home and play in the snow with us
Ryan gets all the credit for this guy
H kept picking up ice chunks and taking a bite and saying, "mmmm"
Starting to melt. We got about 3 inches
We finished up our day with some yummy snow cream
It was a great day. Now I am ready for Spring!!!
