What a week this has been! Tuesday morning started out with school being cancelled due to an ice storm that rolled in. Travis spent the day home with us and we made sure to pack in lots of movies and lounging around in our pajamas. Wednesday rolled around and school was cancelled again.... then Thursday and no school... and here it is Friday and school was cancelled again!!!! I have LOVED having Travis home for so many days in a row! We were laughing because this week has been one day short of being as long as spring break. What an unexpected treat! :)
We've spent most days in sweatpants and pajamas. Our little hundred year old cottage has been struggling to stay warm so a lot of our time has been spent snuggled on the couch or in the bed together watching movies on Netflix! Oh and for those of you who had asked... the Netflix can be accessed right from the internet to our computer.
From Tuesday until yesterday morning we went without hot water because the pipes were frozen. I felt a little bit like Ma Ingalls from Little House on the Prairie heating water on the stove for dishes and washing up. Thursday morning the pipes unfroze and I had the most glorious HOT bath!!! :)
Emma and I have also been spending quite a bit of time by the kitchen table together. She crafts while I've been sewing spring and summer clothes for her!
*Thank you for the stamping set Macey and Ms. Melissa!!!*
This little guy can easily be distracted with the fishing game.
*And someone had asked the name of it... "Let's go fishin" *
It can get a little wild at times :)
This morning we woke up to quite a bit (at least for here!) of fluffy snow!
After our third pancake breakfast (new recipe below!) of the week we headed outside for a little play time.
We LOVE pancakes at our house! Typically I just use a box mix and call it a day. On Wednesday I thought I'd try something different and looked up a recipe for Applesauce Pancakes.
I thought they were VERY delicious! Travis thought they were okay and said he preferred regular pancakes. :)
The serving suggestion was to top with either maple syrup or apple butter.
2 cups dry pancake mix
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Time to head off of here... my beautician Emma Kate has a beauty parlor set up for me in the other room.
Wish me luck :)
Have a great weekend!
