Coldest Texas Winter Ever

January 19, 2018

Monday, Georgia had off of school for MLK day.  It was sunny and 65 so our plan was to be outside as much as we possibly could because the following day was going to be down right frigid to us Texans.  We started the day off with a walk.
I made the kids popsicles earlier in the day so after an outdoor lunch and naps we went outside and played since I knew we would be indoors all day the following day.  Milam LOVES playing outside under the trampoline.  I just love all of his silly little faces.
 Sweet big sister does a great job playing with Milam.  She amazes me everyday with how much she loves him (Even though some days I swear if I hear her yell, "MILAM!" one more time I'm going to lose it!)
 Ugh.  His stink face.  I see this all day.
 I'm stuck, Momma!
 He makes it hard to say no to that face!
These kids love their trampoline.  I watched Georgia do several front handsprings and watched Milam get so excited because he can jump and actually get his feet off of the ground.  Both are very proud of their skills.
As I predicted, Tuesday Georgia didn't have school because of the weather.  Luckily Jonathan was off as well.  We started the day off with waffles.  Someone commented jokingly on the amount of butter I used.  Ha.  In my defense, Jonathan fixed my plate.  And, in his defense the butter wouldn't spread so he used a lot.  Either way it was delicious!
 Reporting live from Conroe Texas. It’s Georgia Powell with the channel 4 news. I’m reporting that it will start snowing in four minutes! I’m weather girl! No job is too hard for me!”  Ha! She heard me reading the Weather Channel alerts on my phone.  I love her creative mind.
Eventually we were really bored so we drove to the other side of the neighborhood to my mom's house.  We drove really slow and did not see any ice on the road (only where we drove over our ditch) and then my mom's entire sidewalk, steps, and porch were ice but we all survived ;)  Georgia, Jonathan, and my step-dad Aaron attempted a quick snowball fight.  Georgia won.
This is the third hard freeze in our area and the third time we tried the bubble experiment.  We finally got it to work!  Georgia was really excited but we were cold so we quickly went back inside.
 Georgia really wanted to go sledding so she grabbed a cookie sheet and tried her best.  Haha.
We came inside to thaw off and enjoyed watching the snow start falling more and more.  At one point the flakes were as big as a quarter.  Something I have never seen in our area.  Milam napped and we all relaxed.  When he got up Jonathan started preparing dinner, Georgia worked on an original dessert and then we got bundled up to play outside again.  OH, the laundry.
I really wanted to get some good pictures of Milam but was having too much fun.  When he saw the snow falling from the sky he was screaming with excitement.  They actually stayed outside playing for awhile.
She ended up not having school on Wednesday either because it was still in the teens when we got up and didn't get above freezing until about one.  The kids got bundled up again to play outside one last time before it all melted away.
Georgia made slushes and Jonathan cooked pumpkin bread.  Milam loved it all.
By wednesday we were getting back to normal.  I took Georgia to gymnastics and Jonathan and Milam made dinner.

Thursday Georgia finally went back to school. 
Today is friday and I have somewhat settled back into the "school" routine just for us the hit the weekend.  Tonight G had Fun Night at church and Jonathan and I are getting our second date night in as many weeks.  So excited!

Our Short Week

January 15, 2018

Georgia had off last Monday and then was home with me Tuesday to ensure she got all her medicine so she could go to the bathroom again so she just had school Wed-Fri.  Now today, Monday is a holiday so she's home again.

The weather for tomorrow is cold with a forecast of snow so I'm unsure what school on Tuesday will look like or if it will happen at all's Texas y'all and we don't deal with snow.  At all.

Let's back up.  On Wednesday Georgia finally went back to school for the first time since Christmas break.  She was excited to see all her "besties", her teacher, and rock a new outfit she put together.  Never mind the note I have taped over the doorbell to keep the neighborhood kids from waking up Milam when he's napping.
She also switched gymnastics class and had her first day back since Christmas.  She was really excited about her mermaid leo!  I got it HERE.
Thursday she had gymnastics again and Friday we went to Arby's for dinner and ran errands when Jonathan got home from work and ended the night in bed watching a movie with G.
Saturday morning I had a newborn shoot and Jonathan watched the kids at home.  I wish I could say this is such a dad picture to send but I send Jonathan these pictures as well.
Also, on Saturday we went to a wedding.  We never go to weddings and were so excited to get out without the kids.  We had a lot of fun, ate yummy food, and got in a few dances. And...a trip to the photo booth where Jonathan got to pick the background :/
My forever wedding date.  He's the best.
On Sunday I stayed home while the fam went to church.  I slept horribly, no idea why, the night before and just could hardly stay awake on Sunday morning.  I tried to take a nap but just couldn't.

I picked out Georgia's clothes but she added the choker and the purse.  On point, G.  Milam, added the bitty Jeep ;)
