Well it looks like we are finally getting our Winter weather! We received more snow the other night and the boys couldn’t wait to get their gloves in it! When Jonathan got home from school on Friday I let the boys go out in our backyard. The boys wanted to help “shovel” outside, but ended up making snow angels and a big pile of snow. They would have stayed out much longer if I had let them.
There is something very magical about snow and children playing in it. The boys seem to go into another world. I love the snow when I know we do not have to go anywhere in it. I don’t love all the mess the snow brings though and the million piles of clothes, hats, gloves, and boots!
We made some energy bites over the weekend. I love these bites because they are quick, energy boosting, and tasty! I used this recipe, but they can be so versatile that you can substitute or add things to your preference. We are hitting a stage where I can’t seem to keep enough snacks for the boys in the house. They are growing so much and their appetites are not slowing down! I made the mistake of taking Jonathan to the store with me over the weekend and that was a very fun, but pricey outing. Jonathan rarely wants to come so when he was willing I jumped at the opportunity to get some one on one time with him. Overall it was fun to get to chat with him while he threw EVERYTHING in the cart!!
I hope you have a great week!
