It's Not Snowing

It's actually been almost 80 degrees the last few days, but less than 2 weeks ago it was snowing! 
This was taken about 11:00 at night. It was pouring snow and super bright outside. 

 Marcus had to drive to work the next morning. Firemen don't get snow days. 

So when the roads cleared up a little, I loaded up my kids and headed to my sister's house.
Katie was entertained by her cousins, Jesse slept in the pack and play, and I got to talk with my sis. AND she fed us lunch! It was a good day.

After we got home, Katie played in the back yard while I fed Jesse. And she built a snowman all by herself!

She just came in asking for a carrot! 

I also gave her some m&m's for eyes at first.
But Blue ate those eyes right off the snowman's face!
I don't blame him.

Last week was spring break and it rained almost everyday. AND we got the stomach bug too! It was Jesse's first time to be sick and poor Katie was miserable too. She kept saying, "this is a bad dream. I am ready for it to be over!"
It made me so thankful for our health. 

This week the weather has been so beautiful. 
We are outside a lot. 

On Friday I took Katie to see Cinderella. 
We loved it!
We especially loved Frozen Fever at the beginning.
Then we went to Sam's because Marcus had to get a flat tire replaced. We got stuck there over 3 HOURS! 
We had fun for 2.5 of those hours and then the kids were DONE! 
I wish I could get a hold of the Sam's surveillance video. We had the big cart that holds two kids facing forward. First I was pushing Jesse, Katie AND Marcus in that. Then he was pushing the 3 of us. Then we would have Katie hop off, tell her to look at something "cool", then ditch her and run off! (it was funny, not abusive. We were all dying laughing. I had tears running down my face)

Eventually my parents saved the day and picked up the kids and me. Then of course Marcus's truck was ready 5 minutes later!

Another fun thing we did last week was Whirlyball!
Have you played? It's a mix between track ball and basketball, but you are in a bumper car. 
We played with my in laws. 
This was taken about 2 hours before Jesse threw up on me. I wish I could warn that girl right there!

Also before the barfs started, we went to Bass Pro Shops. 
Maybe Jesse thinks his mom is crazy?

So spring break is over, but things are still fun around here. Katie is the class Queen this week. It's a role she's very comfortable with. 
Marcus and I get to go on a lunch date tomorrow.
 Next week I will be going on a short road trip to Waco with 6 other girls! And then we have a first birthday party and Easter to celebrate. 
Then it will be summer before we know it!
So this post started with snow and ended with summer!

Yeah, spring break was a bust here, too. Tooth pain and a root canal. Oh well. At lest we didn't have to get up to an alarm!
I'd so love to see that surveillance video!
