Spring (?) Break

Today officially begins my week of spring break! I have needed this break really bad! Then we wake up this morning to snow. As I write this we are under a blizzard warning, expecting a possible 15 inches by Sunday morning!!! I can't believe this! First of all, I can't remember a blizzard in Cincinnati in my lifetime. It's kind of cool but come on- it's March for pete's sake! I'm supposed to be enjoying sunshine and birds, and instead I'm watching my daughter build snowmen!!! Does anyone else think this is a bit bizare????

Well, if it has to be snowing, and right now that's the only option, we might as well make the best of it right! Steven got off work early and after stopping at the grocery he came home and took Bri out to play. She has been so excited all day and couldn't get outside fast enough. They spent a little over an hour building a snow man around a big boulder that sits outside our building. It turned out really good.
If Bri looks exhausted in this photo she was! She had been playing hard with daddy and it started showing on her little red face! This is how she looked before they went out to play:

Jonah was taking a nap while they were outside so I decided to use the quiet time to scrapbook. I haven't scrapbooked anything in quite a while so I was excited. The snow gave me the inspiration to scrap last year's sled riding pictures of Bri. (See, I said it had been a while!!!) I was so excited with how they turned out I thought I'd share!

Sometimes waiting for the right inspiration pays off! I hope to get quite a few layouts done while we are snowed in this weekend!

Pray please for mom. She is stuck in Florida right now. She went down for a conference and it looks like right now she's stranded. I told her to make the most of it, after all she is in Florida, but she's really bummed out and worried about when she'll get home. So just keep her in your prayers!

Well, that's all for today! Be safe wherever you are!

I am so sorry that you are in a blizzard! I am not sorry that we aren't though! I see them talk about Ohio on the news and I feel so sad for all of you. I have spring fever and I can't take anymore snow. They said it could snow tomorrow here, so that could be sad. Oh well. Cute scrapbook pages. Are those digital or old school? I am impressed!! Oh, and Bri looks sooooo cute!

Thanks so much! Those are totally old school- I haven't tried digital yet. I just enjoy the traditional way so much! Do you scrap?

What cute pictures! Your kids are so adorable. I know the last time I saw Jonah he was on the brink of walking...thanks for posting the photos of his experience! I love checking out your fun to keep up with your children. I hope to see you soon!!

It snowed everywhere this week, it's pretty insane. They even got countable inches in TX!
