I’m not sure what’s come over me, but I am simply exhausted. I got plenty of sleep, woke up and made breakfast, downed some coffee and still just have no desire to do much of ANYTHING. I’m going to blame the weather. According to my phone app, it is currently 31 degrees outside. (Earlier it said 29, so YAY!?) High of 45, low of 19. Winter is coming to Alaska.
Honestly, I’m pretty excited for the snow. (not the NEGATIVE weather, just the snow). Last year we didn’t do much outside, mostly because I wasn’t used to it and because my daughter was still too young to enjoy it. My son LOVED it! He begged daily to go play in it. But this year, we’re GOING to play outside. It’s a must! I was constantly told last winter to get out of the house, go for a walk, go play in the snow, go explore, just GET OUT OF THE HOUSE!
If you stay cooped up in doors during this winter, you’re more than likely to get what’s known as “Cabin fever”. NOT A GOOD THING!! I experienced it last winter-my husband and I were at each other’s throats, I cried like daily, I HATED Alaska, my kids were getting stir crazy, it was seriously a horrible experience. This year we are determined to make the most of it. The Santa house, Birchhill, the ice museum and whatever else I can find for us to get into!
Oh and I’d like to make a snowman! (or twenty) I want it to be better than this one.
This was made back in 2007, at Fort Knox, Kentucky. Do you see his legs?!?! or her?! I’m not sure. Not the point though-Pretty awesome snowman huh?!
So since it’s getting colder, I need to get off my bum and go through the kids’ clothes!! I know we need a snowsuit for my daughter. My son’s coat from last year still fits, YAY! I got some boots and pants off of Ebay for a total of $10. WHOO HOO!! And I traded my son’s old snowboots for a pair for my little girl. Pretty good right?! I thought so! Just need a snowsuit. I also need to get em some leggings and warmer pj’s. Maybe some slippers as well. Last year I got some slippers from Old Navy for $4 each! They LOVED em and wore em all the time! And after several wears and washes, both pairs are still in amazing shape. Definitely worth the $8!
GLOVES! HATS! Kids need those too!
Now I’m making myself a shopping list. Haha!!
In other news, have you ever seen Team Umizoomi? They are currently talking about ice cream pizzas. It sounds pretty disguisting, but the show has my kids VERY entertained. (Oh, and the ice cream pizza is a cookie topped with ice cream and then candies, so not that gross.) But this show is a big math show. It’s pretty cute really. Found on nick jr in case you’re wondering.
I also need to invest in more magic erasers. *sigh* I HATE CRAYONS!!! Ok, so not really… I just hate that my dearest daughter likes to color on walls and on my son’s train table and yea. Grrr.
