2013 Blue Jeans Week 8

So we are finally getting some winter weather here.  We got snow this past week, enough for them to cancel school two days.  The kids were really excited.  We are expecting more snow this week, so we will see how it turns out.  Here is a look at our week. . .

Sunday:  Mr J is a great reader, but he has been extremely reluctant to start chapter books because picture books are way more fun.  We finally found a series he likes and will read The Dragon Slayers Academy by Kate McMullan.  Sunday afternoon I enjoyed listening to him read.  

Piano lessons night, the kids wait their turns for their lessons and try and figure out a new game on the tablet.  

Snow day!  Went sledding today.

Another snow day, and Mr J enjoys making tracks in the snow.

Got together with some friends for some more sledding.  Most of these kids have been friends since they were born.  Great to spend some time with them!

The girls enjoy a relaxing evening, and Miss A does Miss E's nails while she reads Where's Waldo :)  Can you think of a better way to spend an evening?

Some dear friends of ours moved away this weekend.  We had them over for a good-bye party.  We will miss them!

Thanks for visiting.  How was your week?  Did you get snow?  Have a great week!

I am linking up with The Mom Creative and Kleinworth Co.


  1. Yay for snow days!! We've had insane amounts of snow but only one day off...we're just too used to it!

  2. Looks like a great week! No significant snow here. All winter long, which is very disappointing. If it is going to be cold and snowy, I would prefer to get more than a dusting and at least be able to get outside and enjoy it. :)

  3. I love it when they start reading chapter books and really get into them. Lucky you guys with the snow days. I had them growing up and loved them but my kids will probable never see one. Even if you have to make the days up at the end its still worth it! So much fun :0)

  4. I SO wish we had snow. We had very little back in December and that is it. So much for Canada being cold - my heathers are blooming any my tulips are coming up!!

  5. So fun to have a few snow days to get back to blogging! Looks like your kids had a great time in the snow! You all do so many great things! I feel like I haven't seen you in such a long time, it was nice to get a visit on your blog.

  6. I kinda miss snow...we don't get it very often in Dallas. I can't wait till my boys start reading. I can just imagine how wonderful it is to hear.
