Let it snow, let it snow

Lexington has gotten a good bit of snow.

More than a dusting.

Less than a foot.

But it was enough to have fun and enjoy the afternoon. While Mike shoveled the driveway, I was able to take pics of the boys having a BLAST!! Here are a few of my faves.

Not me Monday

Everyone knows that I have been on a quest to be healthier and lose a little weight (a lot really). I have my ups and downs just as every person does on this same journey.

But Sunday wasn't that day. Not for me!!

I didn't wake up early with the big boy just to watch cartoons and eat left over ham and pineapple pizza for breakfast. No not me!! And of course I didn't top it off with a bite of the brownies I had made. Are you kidding? I would never do that, not me!!

That's okay though, because I didn't eat the leftover pizza for lunch either or snack on the chips and dip I had given to the boys at lunch.

Sunday came and went and then the big snow came on Monday (big for Lexington). We took the kiddos to school and spent the day together. I didn't eat anything bad today either. I definitely didn't eat waffle house for brunch, or 1/2 a bag of popcorn at the movie theatre. Oh, and then when my husband suggested we go get a sweet snack at Calistoga, I emphatically said NO. Ha, not me.

Then we got the kiddos and played in the snow. We don't have snow boots for our little one. But did that stop us? Not a chance. But I didn't do anything crazy--like use ziploc bags to cover his feet and legs. Nope!! That would just be crazy.


all in all things are good. Hope all is well with everyone!! Love to you all.

daily ramblings

Not much going on here to discuss. We've had ups and downs this week. I've gone so far as buying something called Attentive Child at the Whole Foods store. I was really hoping it would help Ryan, but not so much. He's in trouble every where he goes and I am about done taking him ANYWHERE! At school I get called by the teacher. He gets in trouble at Church and Jason calls me (although this has gotten better). He even had trouble with respect at DAYCARE the other day when they were out because of snow.. Oh, and lets not forget me having to leave a gym class a few minutes early because he wasn't doing what he was told by one of the adults. Seriously? I know he knows better. I'm thinking a little trip to the pediatrician is in order.

Even Alex is beginning to have a little attitude. He even tried to take a swing at me the other night when I was putting him in time out. Really? You're two!!! Give it some time to build in the anger son. I've actually resorted to putting him in his room and closing the door so he can't get out. That really upsets him and puts things in perspective for him. After I open the door and ask him if he's going to be better he nods yes and gives a big hug.

I love my boys so much and am having such a time with them. If anyone has any really good advice or ideas let me know. I've prayed a lot for the boys, for strength, and for patience. Some days I just don't know how much is getting through. Thankfully Spring is almost here and we will be able to go play at the park again. I'm just counting down the days...
