snowed in with family in town

My sister and her kids drove down from Colorado,
and my parents came in for the weekend..
and go figure it was the only week we had
below freezing temperatures and snow
on the ground the entire time!

We were so happy they came anyways and had fun just laying low
staying cooped up in the house..
it's kinda easier that way anyways with two little ones!
The adults tried to play mexican dominoes one night
after the kids were suppose to be asleep
but somehow they all ended up (minus zoey) back
in the kitchen table with us sitting on available laps

My sister is about to move even farther away (to Portland) and having another baby
so her traveling is going to get pretty limited for the next while
so we were trying to take advantage of getting all together before she is due!

They all travel back home today and we sure are going to miss them!!

these two seriously had the best time together!

what would they do without netflix and stealing our cell phones?

my parents with the kids
carter will have a brother in may
so he won't be totally ruled out by girls!

sleep overs -- they convinced mimi to sleep in there with them every night!
my moms a good sport!

snow day

I figured I needed to document our 3 days ice/snow days
Monday and Tuesday schools were canceled here in Texas
and today there were some delays
We had a good snow fall this morning
and 90% of it is melted already!

We had about 4 different outfit changes yesterday because she kept going outside
& coming back in to warm up and she would be soaking wet..
I don't know if it's the age or what but she is pretty was pretty excited to play in the snow
and stayed content out there all by herself! She also made her first snowman

best of both worlds

We kinda have fallen in love with our new neighborhood!
Tyson gets his country feel and I'm not too far from all the shopping
it took a while for Tyson to convince me to move away from where we lived..
but I'd say we did pretty good at getting best of both worlds.

I might have a deep obsession with these truffle kisses.
like seriously, it's bad.
no lie they melt in your mouth
and goodness gracious I could probably
devour an entire bag in a couple of days!!

Junior Explorers

We had a fun little package arrive this week in the mail,
it's a company called  Junior Explorers where they send you a "mission"
Lexi has totally been into spy movies so I knew
she would love having some type of mission!

Junior Explorers is focused around getting your kids familiar with
our planet ecosystems and species through fun and interactive missions.

It was a good little one on one experience
where me and Lexi could sit down while Zoey was napping
and "play".. she is constantly asking either me or Tyson to play with her..
I only last so long playing pretend or barbies or whatever it is..
but I really really enjoyed doing this mission with her!
It was a good time to sit down and teach her about the things in her package.

Our mission was to Serengeti,
I was able to pull out her globe and explain to her where
Africa was and when we started the mission online she was able to
better understand the circle of life.

Once we were done with our mission,
she was already asking to play it again!

Junior Explorers is best suited for ages 5-12
Lexi is 4 1/2, so as long as a parent is near by reading
through the mission I feel like pre-school age is just fine!

They offer 4 different Junior Explorers monthly subscriptions:
1 monthly mission, $19
3 monthly missions, $49
6 monthly missions, $95
and 12 monthly missions, $185

You get a new mission to a new ecosystem
with new animals delivered each month.

Every month, a new mission to learn about wildlife and nature with Junior Explorers!

"Our mission is rooted in the belief that you only protect something that you love
and you can only love things you are connected to.
From this belief, Junior Explorers was developed as a program
to develop kids’ understanding of our planet,
its ecosystems and species through fun and interactive missions.
We built a program which is truly experiential,
is both tactile and digital, and meant for kids to learn while having fun.
Junior Explorers is dedicated to educating
and inspiring the next generation of environmental stewards."

these two

A couple of weeks ago I photographed both of my girls,
Lexi I feel like is starting to get to the age where she realizes pictures aren't all that fun..
so I just had to remind her that Zoey isn't going to stay this little for long and one day she will want to remember this stage.. and it seemed to work, I think she would do anything for this little sister of hers! Girls are definitely dramatic and sassy.. but I wouldn't trade having two girls for anything!
