Wow–what a week! Monday was a normal day: school for Kitt and Garet, music class for Ryan, gymnastics in the afternoon. Then with the anticipation of a winter ice storm, they cancelled school for Tuesday. Nothing happened but rain on Tuesday but then came the ice! They ended up canceling school for the rest of the week. We were all going a little crazy and were disappointed that our class Valentine’s Day parties were cancelled (rescheduled, actually). Anyway, Mommy got super creative to keep us busy and entertained for all that time without being able to go outside. We did all kinds of things from making pizza, making shrinky dinks, making salt dough ornaments, setting up the bounce house in the basement, making a puppet stage, painting the ice, watching a “drive in” movie, coloring, making Valentine’s Day crafts and many other things! All in all, we had a good week. The weekend weather was beautiful so we made the most of it. Daddy basically gave Mommy the whole weekend off which she really appreciated and of course, we enjoyed so much time to play with Daddy. Garet wanted to pick flowers for Mommy but Daddy decided to let us go to the store to pick out flowers for her. She loved them! Oh, we discovered a peanut allergy in Ryan a month or so ago, but don’t worry–the picture is her having toast with Biscoff spread. She loves it! We hope you all had a wonderful Valentine’s Day–we did!
What a creative mom you have to devise so many fun things to do while being stranded inside! Thank your mom and dad for taking so many pictures. What a delight to see you go from frozen ice to beautiful sunshine – complete with a rainbow! I especially enjoyed the picture of the three of you poised in front of the oven waiting for the pizza to cook. That was so thoughtful of you to want to get flowers for your mom – she is most deserving of them. Hopefully, tomorrow you will be back in school and doing some fun things with your teachers. Enjoy this week, and I’ll look forward to your next blog. Love, kisses and prayers are coming your way. Love you.
For a cold, snowy, icy week, you girls look as though you had a really fun time staying at home doing lots of new activities. Garet and Kitt did you miss school at all? I hope your teacher will reschedule your Valentine’s Day party so you can share some valentine’s notes and goodies with your friends. I really enjoyed looking at all the photos and especially liked the “We Love You” valentine photo. And Ryan that sure does look like a toasty, warm coat you are wearing. I’m happy the weather got warmer and you were able to spend some fun time with your Daddy at the park. By the way, is that a new park you have found? You’ll have to show it to me next time I come to your house for a visit. Well, I hope this will be a good week for you all and everyone gets back into a normal routine again. Love you lots! …Poppy
