Another week of our kind of crazy, this time with snow delays and cancellations thrown in. Hopefully it was our last hurrah with winter and now we can switch gears to spring. YES...Happy Spring!!
As a show of support, my mom made us a full meal and brought it over, complete with dessert. Our families have always been so welcoming to the new people that come through our home...they are definitely an extension of what we've got going here.
Also, I got a little time with my dear from Oklahoma who was here visiting family. So good to see her and hug her and have her hanging out in my kitchen!
Countless games everyday...a definite perk of having eight people in the house.
I sat down to read with Aiden and, judging from this picture I found, I apparently fell asleep on his shoulder.
Snowday for all.
Another snow day. The kids were wanting to play in the snow, but it was SOO cold.
There were three different puzzles going on this one day.
We attended parent/teacher conferences and Avery showed us her neat-as-a-pin locker. Thankful that the kids seem to be thriving.
Amanda produced her own "cooking show"...how to make slime.
K's boyfriend has become a regular dinner/evening guest. What's one more??

I had to say no, you cannot go to your boyfriend's house where you will be unsupervised on this Friday night. So to soften the blow of 'new house, new rules', I took the girls to the mall while H was at youth group. You would be shocked at the items on my "List of Things I'd Rather Do Than Go To The Mall"....things such as laundry, running a marathon, cleaning toilets, shoveling snow. However, after walking through the gown shop we talked about proms and weddings and marriage. And seeds were planted, which I guess makes the mall worth it.
Yup...more games. Sequence is one of my favorites.
Sadly, Shaun's grandfather passed away this day. His 98 years were well lived.
I started going through some of my photos of him and this was in the favorites. He took such joy in his great-grandkids.
