The quality of these pictures coming off of my iPod aren't the best quality, but I still love to dump them on here as a way of saving them for the future. And it's probably the best way to document our lives on a day to day basis.
The weather last week was really really cold. And with two little guys to get in and out of the car, it was a great week to just stay tucked inside the house where we could play to our heart's content. Nolan took the opportunity to dump all of the lego blocks out of his box so he could play with his cars inside of it instead.
We were also blessed with some new toys when the church storage area was recently cleaned out. Nolan didn't even wait to take his shoes off when we got home. He just jumped right in and started enjoying them!
One day last week, after sharing me with another all day, he just had a seat in my lap and didn't get back up for a long time.
Don't worry, I didn't mind!
There are always the days when we have to take silly pictures of ourselves and then laugh together as we look at them. Nolan particularly enjoys looking at pictures of himself!!
On day last week, Melayna invited him downstairs to play Barbies with her. Until he just jumped right into the house... I'm guessing that wasn't what she had in mind!
The girls are happy to have a little bit of time with Killian before and after school. Marissa is especially happy to have a new little one to play with. They were looking outside at the snow in this picture...
One morning after dropping off the girls at school, I was a little slow in getting Killian out of the car seat. Nolan went over to stand beside him and was sweetly talking to him to entertain him. It was too cute!
And whatever Nolan was saying, it must have been funny!
I love that the girls' teachers keep a blog or post pictures of the girls on Facebook for me to see what they are doing during the day. Recently, Morgan took a field trip across town to another one of our elementary schools where they have an old schoolhouse right on the property. (Thankfully it is heated for the winter time). She had so much fun dressing up like the old days and learning how they use to do things in a one room school house. She especially liked the handout with all of the "wives tales" the students believed and also all of the rules that they had to follow.
Girls on one side...boys on the other!
At the beginning of last week, Nanny took the second of her chemo treatments. It took five hours for the who process to be complete and she struggled with the normal nauseau and fatigue all through last week, but she continues to be a smiling encouragement to all those who come into contact with her. She is truly an inspiration!! We love you, Nanny!!
We also stayed busy with basketball for Morgan, Awana's, and birthday parties for all three girls to attend, along with various church events through the week. Really, even if I don't get pictures of everything, there is never a dull moment in our house.
As I post this, another new week has started and although the temperature is in the 50's today, the wind is howling and cold rain or snow is in the forecast. Who knows, it might just end up being another great week to stay indoors!!
