One year ago...Lyza's first Snow - Madisyn/Sledding gone bad!

Snow Day....and TIMEOUT!

Today was actually pretty low key........everyone slept in late! The dr. gave me a new medicine for my back, which Chris brought home this morning. It made me REALLY Maddy volunteered to babysit and I fell back asleep for several hours. Just in time to get up, feed Lyza and put her down for her, then I got to nap again!!!

Madisyn went to a friends today (across the road)...they had a few girls over to sled and when I checked in on them they were doing each others hair, make up and putting on a fashion show! What fun! Feels kinda funny to not have a house full of girls here.....but for once, I think I am going to just enjoy the break! I have a feeling that will change tomorrow....and that they will all be here!

I have a precious baby who has started to hit, spit her drinks, throw herself in the floor, kick, throw toys...etc. What is a mom to do??? Well, I wasn't really sure since it has been so long since I have had a two year old! So..we decided this weekend to pull out the "Time Out" chair and the "Time Out Angel Doll" that has a timer. Tonight when she threw a toy at me, then hit me........we drug out the chair, made her sit in it for 5 min. At first she wanted to play with the doll and I figured that was not I put the doll on the mantle and she just had to look at it. She screamed and cried the entire five minutes, but when the timer went off and I told her she could get up.....she was fine and good to go. I don't think I did too much damage! :-) I thought you would enjoy the photos below of her first "time out"!

Stay school tomorrow either! Also keeping all the families in our prayer with no power...there are MANY! Ours has flickered, but not gone out yet!

Toyota production was shut down, but Chris had to go to work anyway.....they had to have three managers mandatory, and he was one of them. Poor guy.......not only do we have more than an inch of ice on the road (more like 1 3/4") but supposed to get a bunch of snow on top of it. I always feel sorry that he has to scrape the truck before he leaves....then again in the morning to return home!

Madisyn's Exhibition Dance

Madisyn's Exhibition Dance was tonight at Central High School. It was actually very entertaining watching the other schools, high schools and even college cheer and dance squads perform. Lyza was really thrilled, clapped and cheered the whole time she was there. Madisyn did and EXCELLENT job.....maybe I'm a little biased, but the girls has moves, facial expressions and the attitude to go with it! She does great and I'm very proud. The video is posted above! I zoomed in on her a lot, so you will know which one is her!

There is no school tomorrow...and probably not for a few days. It started sleeting as soon as we left the gymnasium.....and has continued ever since. We got a bit of snow mixed in with we have 1/2 " of ice right now....with some snow mixed in, making it very pretty and sparkly! I put a photo above it as well. It came fast, as they predicted because we got that within 1/2 hr. I took Lyza to the door and she yelled "Snow, Snow, Snow.....Maisyn, SNOW"...then ran and got her in her room and took Maisyn to the door to see it. Pretty is very loud too...since it is ice coming down!

We will most likely play out in the snow tomorrow, I feel sorry for Chris having to sleep all day...especially with no school. Our house is the hangout house for the girls because we have hills to sled on and lots of room to roam! Oh well......we'll play games by the fire and try to be good! Hot chocolate will be a must also....I was smart, I went to target and stocked up on hot chocolate and chicken noodle soup before Maddy's dance tonight!

Stay warm....and enjoy the snow days!
