Alabama snow week!!!

This fall and winter have been a sickly one and a busy I have thoroughly enjoyed (minus the sickness) this past week. We got almost 9 inches of snow on Monday- it holds third place in recorded history of snows in AL!! I have not left the house all week...actually I got sick last Friday night and haven't left the house since....I did go outside to see the boys play and a few times to play and feed Lina. Tomorrow I am going to the dr. so David said I could have a few extra hours out and about! Schools have been closed all week- David went in today for a couple of hours, but mostly been working here at the house. The boys been a bit sick- we only let them play outside once...J asked me today when we were going to go back outside- that it had been 3 years since we had been out in the snow. ha. They have had bad colds but have passed something around that looks like pink eye too- so we have kept them cooped up inside for as much as possible. Anyways- no one cares about that! ha! Here's some pics of the snow in Alabama...and a couple inside "cabin fever" pics too!

Hudson was already not feeling well and then he got so frustrated he couldn't walk in the snow! He did loosen up a little bit when his uncles and Mel came over!

I really just wanted to make this moment special! David and Lina! (David's not a dog person...I was bragging on him later about picking her up and his response: "only with gloves"...ha)

You see Graham? He found his spot on the stairs where he could still walk!

I think someone is wanting to move into the big boy room...I'm so not ready for that....

Okay- so I have been frustrated with this table...really- just plain ticked off at it. For four years I have been cleaning out the ridges/grooves with the best new thing I could come up with (by the way- fruit kabob sticks are way better than toothbrushes or q-tips). This past year it seemed that everytime I would fix a meal for this table I would be thinking about cleaning these crazy grooves. So, I have had enough!! It was a terrible mess...the sanding...but there are now no more grooves...they are filled!!! I thought since we were snowed in I would have the time...well "time" is a bit different now than what it once was- with three crazy boys in tow...table is still not done...but it's only lacking a top coat of paint...I just hope the "filling" will last. Lesson learned- Don't ever buy a table with grooves- especially with messy little boys....seriously, what was I thinking??? The clean sweeping motion of a clorox wipe has never felt sweeter!!!!

much needed containment for Graham!!! ha!

Hudson has become quite the "trickster"...I really was freaked out for just a moment when I opened the drawer. I often find weird things in wierd places....just for a laugh. I love it...especially when J is cracking up with his head back and his hands on his belly. Then Hudson is nearby covering his sweet little mouth with his chubby little hands, pulling up his shoulders and then jerking his head back with laughter when I point to him...sometimes I just don't want them to grow up...

Sharing a "milkshake" (aka Ensure)

"It's been a good, restful week!"
