What do you do when you are ICED in...

Literally, iced in your home!?

And, out of your car...with no where to go....

Lots of working out!

Pretend it's warm and pack for a beach vacation!

Challenge one another to Feats of Strength!

More stretching and exercising!
A whole lot of going CRAZY!
Little bit of relaxing! (I know that looks like Abby, but look closely...that's Liv. They look more and more alike all the time!)
And, just enjoy the mini-vacation that Mother Nature provided! :)

So, Winter Storm 2011 hit the midwest. It didn't end up being as bad as originally predicted (we only ended up with a few inches of snow on top of the ice instead of the 12-20 that they first said-haha!) but it still was bad enough to keep Scott (and everyone else in the bi-state) home from work for a few days and the kids are on Day 4 of no school (it's already cancelled for tomorrow, too). I am happy to report that Scott went to work today, the girls and I ventured out to grab lunch and I even held an optional practice for my squads today (and, almost every girl was there...they had cabin fever so bad...I've never seen them so happy to be at practice-ha). We have had a lot of fun. It was just what I needed during these busy months of basketball season. The only bad thing was Abby ended up getting sick. Tuesday night she woke up with one of her scary high fevers. I panicked because we were covered in ice at that point, the wind was blowing like crazy and I just knew we were going to lose power (thankfully, we only did for a couple of hours Tuesday morning), and I knew she needed to see a doctor. Wednesday I started calling the doctor's office @ 8am, but of course they were running on delay because of the weather. I sent Scott out to see if he thought it was even possible for them to make it out. He worked on the drive way for a while and thought they could make it to the main roads safely, if he used caution. I finally got an answer around 9:30 and they got Abby in right away (because we were the only idiots out on the roads-ha!). She has croup and is still feeling pretty puny, but she has meds/treatment now and will hopefully bounce back soon. It was funny because Wednesday night we had Abby laying around sick, something I ate didn't settle well and I ended up puking and Scott slipped on the steps on the back porch and hit his head and was walking around with an ice pack on his head....we were a MESS! haha! I believe it was then that Scott decided that, no matter what, he was going to work today! ha! I am seeing posts on Facebook and talking to my friends and most of them are losing their minds, but I haven't hit that stage yet...of course they are calling for more snow on Sunday, so stay tuned! haha!

About Me

Welcome to our life! :) Our life seems to be a constant 3 ring circus these days, but we have a lot of fun, laugh a lot and enjoy every minute of it (okay...almost every minute-haha!) Scott and I have been married for almost 9 years, and we are the parents of 2 amazing daughters, and another little one on the way. This blog is a way to keep in touch with family and friends. It also serves as a 'year book' of sorts for our family. Enjoy!!
