Snow Day!


We woke up this morning to our first snow! While the weatherman originally predicted 1-3″ (which I was expecting later in the day) we are going to end up with 6-8″ when it’s all said and done… AND we and woke up to a good 3″ on the ground already. Blaire was SO excited when she saw it out the back door. She could barely sit still to eat her breakfast before layering up in all of her snow gear.

The funny thing about toddlers is they don’t necessarily remember things from months and months ago. Well, at least Blaire says she doesn’t remember seeing the snow before. Blaire will be three in February, so she saw snow earlier this year as 2-year-old and the year before as a one-year-old. Each year she has LOVED watching it fall out the back door. Last year she even enjoyed putting on her snow pants and playing in it for a grand total of 10 minutes.

And as much as she loved it last winter, she did not discover the movie Frozen until our snowy season was over earlier this spring. So she’s never seen snow with the hopes of building a snowman. ;) She could’ve stayed out there for hours if we let her! She even immediately laid down in the snow and yelled Me Make a Snow Angel

She finally realized she loved eating the snow, which was fine today with a fresh snow fall… not so sure how happy she will be when we explain to her she can’t eat it on a regular basis because it’s gross and dirty. Such is the unfair life of a toddler, I guess.

Happy Sunday! xo

    Aw those pictures are precious! We’ve had about 10 times that amount of snow where I live, so it’s not as fun because a lot of shoveling has to be done!

  • ice cream outside with two of my favorite people. when it’s only 70° outside you can actually eat your ice cream without it melting all over us... and by us I mean them. 👆🏻👆🏻 #blaireandben

  • Well we don’t have a Nordstrom near us, but we do have an Aldi. Most of their summer items are on clearance and we scored this sweet pool for $7. Winner, winner. 🦄☀️ #blaireandben

  • This summer hasn’t really felt like summer yet. 🤨 So when we have an 85° day we make the most out of it with a trip to the pool! How’d you spend your Sunday Funday? #blaireandben
  • another day, another doctors appointment for someone in our crew. today it’s Ben. he was up overnight saying his ear hurt — a double ear infection for him. luckily the kid loves taking medicine and hasn’t let his ears get him down! as long as he’s up moving around they’re fine, but the second he lays down... 😭😭😭. hoping our poor buddy is feeling better tomorrow. do you feel like you need a frequent flier card for your pediatrician? just me? okay. #blaireandben #itsfinewerefine

  • When your brother is getting big but you still want to hold him... you gotta pinch his butt because he’s so wiggly. 😂😬😍 #blaireandben •

  • It is definitely bittersweet to leave the house where we brought both of these babies home. But we are excited for our next chapter as a family of five! #rainbowbaby #blaireandben

  • Last night was our first night in the new house. 👏🏻 We still have lots of stuff to bring from the old house and then lots of cleaning over there before the final walk through and closing next Monday. Then we can focus on getting this house unpacked and organized. But first, I would like a nap. 😴 #blaireandben #happilytristahome
  • Happy Halloween! 🎃 👻 #blaireandben

  • This sums up our Sunday. After driving around like crazy people to go to three parties yesterday, today was lazy and included movies, popcorn, long naps, quick trick or treat at the mall and then spaghetti pizza. And I might be eating my kids candy on the couch right now. 😍 How was your weekend? #blaireandben
  • Childhood... drinking a frosty in your teepee. what. a. life. We had a slow weekend. Literally vegged out at home 95% of the time and it was marvelous.  #blaireandben
