2 Year Pictures

I scanned Eli's 2 year pictures. The quality of the scan isn't great, but you can get the idea. The black and white picture was taken at Jake's brother's wedding.

Snow Day #4

It is snow day #4 here in North Texas, and we've officially gone stir crazy. As I'm writing this Eli is literally bouncing off the walls.

It snowed a ton (at least for Texas) last night and this morning, so we decided to get out and play in it. Below are some pictures of our fun time. Notice the bread bags on Eli's feet. We started with them outside his shoes, but he was slipping all over the place so we put them inside his shoes.

Trapped Inside

The last 2 days have been snow days here in North Texas, and we just got word that tomorrow will be a snow day as well. No school for Jake! Unfortunately we really can't go out of the house because it is supposed to feel like zero degrees outside and it's super icy. It's more of an ice day than a snow day.

Since we're housebound, I've gotten to work on and cross off a bunch of projects on my To-Do list. The first few pictures are of 2 infant car seat covers that I made. I think I'll keep the brown one for myself and give the blue one to a friend. I made them using the following tutorial (although I changed the dimensions a little): The funny thing is that I already decided on this design when I noticed my cousin's wife Mia made the first comment on the tutorial. That's when I knew it was a great find.

Eli has also had fun playing in the infant car seat...
When Eli turned 1 year old and we moved to the house we're currently renting, I decided to make him a name plaque for the wall of his room. I just finished making one for Adam (that's the name we've picked for our son in utero). Below is a picture of the finished product.

And lastly, I made the magnets for Adam's name for our family night board.Who would have thought being housebound would be so fun!
