I just have to say . . . IT IS COLD OUT!!!! I don't mind winter, but I do NOT like it THIS COLD!!!
And as a final fun part of the day, the "goodie bags" after the party included gift cards for YoGoCrazy (frozen yogurt place. Sooo much better than a goody bag full of cheap toys!
Other than the party, we didn't have much "extra" going on this week (NICE!) so I had some extra time to spend FINALLY getting the girls' room finished up. When Ashlyn set up her "nook", she'd piled the stuff that had accumulated under the sewing table in the middle of the room. A few times I'd asked all 3 girls to work on going through/putting away that stuff, and they had . . . but there was still a pretty big pile there AND a major factor in rearranging Lexie and Little Bit's part of the room was moving the bed, which meant not only cleaning the main floor space, but also under the bed, and the mountain of stuffed animals that lived behind the bed. But after a day or so, the end was in sight. . . we all worked together on it, and got their room rearranged!!!
I didn't think to take "before" pictures, but here's the finished product:
And the left side of the room. Dresser is to the left of the door. The little door on the side wall goes into the storage/attic space. Lexie is thrilled to have a place to leave her music stand set up.
Wednesday, on our way to Bible study, we just HAD to use those YoGoCrazy gift cards, so despite the frigid temperatures, we enjoyed some frozen yogurt (and lots of yummy fruit!!).
Thursday is normally music lessons but conveniently, it worked better for both our schedule AND their teacher's schedule to do music lessons on Wednesday this week. Plus when we arranged it, the weather report was calling for snow on Thursday. Ended up not getting much snow, but was nice to hibernate anyway :)
And we ended up doing some extra hibernating on Sabbath. The weather report was . . . ambiguous on when/how much/if we'd get snow, so since we didn't have any commitments at church this week, we snuggled in and watched Veggie Tales videos with the kids, then watched the church service on the live stream :)
