Week 3

Welcome back and happy Tuesday!  It's crazy warm here and feels like spring which is kind of scary.  We are breaking records on consecutive dry days and high temps so we really need more rain and cold weather.  No one wants to go into spring and summer with drought conditions.  Still we'll be heading to the mountains for our annual ski trip this weekend.  I have no idea if we'll even get to ski.  Our resort makes it's own snow and has 20 runs open so we'll see.  Pray for rain--a lot of rain!  We need a fantastic February or a March miracle to help get us out of this mess. 

Until then take a look at last week's photos:

Day 13- Monday, 1/13/14
The teachers were kind enough to slowly ease the kids back into homework after the winter break, but now they are cranking it up so they can get everything in before the end of the semester.  This is just the start of a heavy homework week for my busy 4th grader.

Day 14- Tuesday, 1/14/14
These two are always on the lookout for new Skylanders they don't already have and want to constantly check Target's stock.

Day 15- Wednesday, 1/15/14
It's time for an early morning drop off.  Tyler has a test review session before school starts.  It's finals week and he's working hard for an A in his AP European History class.

Day 16- Thursday, 1/16/14
Into week 3 of eating better and working harder.  I use an app by Skimble called Workout Trainer to help me squeeze in some afternoon exercise while I catch up on my recorded TV shows.

Day 17- Friday, 1/17/14
John's out of town for the weekend, Tyler successfully finished finals, and the two younger ones just wrapped up a tennis lesson so we're eating out to kick off our 3-day weekend right.  It's an In-N-Out kinda night--burgers for my boys!

Day 18- Saturday, 1/18/14
Tonight the boys and I watched Despicable Me 2 on DVD.  It was a fun, relaxing, and comfy family movie night.  So many minions!  The boys pointed out there was a DJ minion for John and a picture snapping minion for me.  LOL!

Day 19- Sunday, 1/19/14
Sadly the 49ers lost their playoff game today, but we didn't let that slow us down.  After the game the adults went out for dinner and drinks at Paesanos in Davis.  We all had some great pasta dishes and enjoyed the night.

That's all for this week.  Hopefully next week I'll have some pictures of some fun in the snow.  I'm bound and determined to find a patch or two at least!

  1. Hope you get some rain and have snow for this weekend! Looks like a fun week. We love Despicable Me 2 at our house. Your night out looks yummy! Have a great skiing weekend!!

  2. That's a great idea to work in some exercise while watching TV. I'll have to try that ... like make myself get up and run in place during commercials, or something along those lines.

    I know what you mean about the nice weather. I love it, but am worried we'll have a really bad summer if we don't get more moisture here in Dallas.

    Have a GREAT time on your skiing trip. :)

  3. That Skimble app sounds really neat! I will have to check it out. I need to start working out again. Love the pic of your boys at In-N-Out. I wish they had those here in Atlanta. They have such good burgers!!

  4. What a great idea to work out during your catch up shows...I will have to keep that in mind!! I thought about you when the 49ers lost..boo. I am rooting for the Broncos ....we are peyton fans♥. I was hoping we would be playing you...sigh. Have a great week my friend.

  5. I am wondering where you are and if you got your snow. We got a boat load.
