Grateful Heart: Doing Nothing!

It's Monday again (Don't you love that I remind you that every time like you don't already know!!), and so that means I am linking up with Emily at Ember Grey to talk about what we are grateful for!!!

 As many of you know, and if you don't then you have for sure been living in a pit underground, we have been snowed in for a week!! The kids have officially gone crazy...oh wait..I mean the parents! I have had a wonderful time with my kiddos but I am ready to get back in a routine! Even Jagger said he was ready to get back to school!!??
With all that being said, I am totally grateful for doing nothing!! I have enjoyed the days that we have had nothing!


It has been nice to slow down and enjoy each other even if we get bored a little. I love that we have HAD to spend time together! We have made memories this week that we might not have otherwise! So maybe this crazy weather hasn't been a horrible thing anyways!
The first couple of days we got to play outside, but then towards the end of the week it all froze, so it was just a sheet of ice and was too cold to go out! We spent a lot of time watching cartoons, EATING, watching cartoons, cuddling, napping, napping,


and when the kids were napping I would sneak in some bible study time or maybe a little Netflix action!!
Yes, there were times I thought we all might have a nervous breakdown, but I am oh, so grateful for this week/weekend of doing nothing!!!
Hope everyone has a blessed day!! Stay warm!
Lots of love...

  1. Oh how I feel you on this. It comes to a point where you just can't take it any more. The time inside bonding is precious but there is a point when we all go crazy and need to break loose. I hope the weather takes a turn for the better for you all!

  6. We were only snowed in for one day....I can't imagine a week. But the thought of pjs, snuggling, and doing nothing sounds glorious. Have a great week getting back into routine!
