Super Bowl? Super Snow!

This week has been a bit off for DFW. In fact, I'm not really convinced I'm in Texas anymore.
On Tuesday morning we got sleet and ice.
A TON OF IT! Ava had fun walking around the back yard discovering the white stuff on the grass.
Do you like her outfit? I'm fairly certain Aaron and I have had enough dressup this week to last 4 lifetimes.
The temps were in the single digits all week and so the ice never melted. The roads were HORRID.
We managed to make it to the grocery store on Thursday as we were completely out of groceries. Have you ever pushed a shopping cart full of groceries on ice? Ha! It should be a sport.
It was so cold that our pipes froze up and we had no cold water for two days. I'm praising God that we didn't have any busted pipes and they thawed out today!

She resembles Bret Michaels just a tad, doesn't she?
The weather resulted in school closures all week, which means we were all home, nice and verycozy every day. Sun up. Sun down. I just told Aaron that this week was a little taste of what retirement will be like, but harder since we had to be couped up with a demanding, busy toddler! We actually had a lot of fun just spending time with eachother. Or maybe we bonded because it was us against the child? HAHA!
Getting out Thursday helped the cabin fever subside. And it was also great that we got the groceries. Late Thurdsday night came round two. But this time it was about 6-8 inches of snow!
I know many people hate snow. Especially if you see it every day for months. But for us southern folks, it is magical! And oh my goodness, how beautiful?! Winter is so ugly and brown here, so I loved the new white blanket covering the ugly brown dead stuff.
We went out this morning and made some snow angels.
Aaron had to show Ava how it was done.
She looks like she is mad or crying but really the sun was just blinding her. Haha!
Next up was building our snowman. I was building and singing "Frosty the Snowman" until Aaron demanded that I stop the tune. He said I could sing "Johnny the Snowman" but Frosty was only for Christmas time. He is such a nerd.
Ava was interested in the building for all of 4 seconds. Then it was off to her own little world doing her own thing.
Oh well, we had fun making Johnny on our own.
Here is the finished Johnny.
Yes, Johnny is very in touch with his feminine side. But he is wearing his Dallas Cowboys cap to support the Jerry Jones family in their time of grief over the excessive loss of revenue during what was supposed to be the biggest week ever with the hosting of the Super Bowl and all.
Poor Jerry. Karma stinks sometimes.
And look! I learned how to use the self timer on my camera today!!
Perhaps tomorrow I will learn how to dress better...



  1. Love the pictures! Isn't snow so much fun with a little one to enjoy it with?!?

  2. I can't get over that! Crazy! I am jealous of your snowman. I live in MN and have YET to do that with Emersyn----because the snow is too deep in our yard yet--and she would sink! Haha! Our plan tomorrow is to do snow angels now that it's warming up some. Enjoy the white stuff :)

  3. I have been enjoying hang with the family too, but I am done with the snow for this year. We finally got out and about today. The roads were terrible, but it was cool to see our neighborhood all snowy!

    Nice snowman.

  4. It's crazyness isnt' it? Something tells me that Jerry isn't actually losing any money this week. It's all the peeps in the surrounding areas...except you know wreckers and stuff. Ha. I'm ready for the THAW!! I've got to go somewhere...anywhere!!!

  5. Cracks me up that Ava is in her dress up outfit outside!! This weather is crazy... I was so glad to go eat Mexican food yesterday. We had to call my BIL to come take us in his 4wd, but we were getting desperate after 4 days in the house!! :) Hopefully my girls will wear their dresses tomorrow and I'll send you a pic. I linked up to your website from my blog when I showed the pictures in a post a week ago! :)

  6. The Brett Michaels comment made me laugh! Sadly, Ava probably has more sense than him! Love your stock show pics! We went the past few of years until we moved back to Fayetteville. We were sick that we didn't go back this year for it since Cilla's favorite thing in the world is farm animals! Looks like a blast!

  7. just came across your blog! it's seriously so great! what a cutie in those pics!

Ft. Worth, Texas
After having my girly girl in April of 08, and spending oodles of money on one of a kind boutique, monogrammed clothing (with hairbows to match), I decided it was time to learn this trade myself before I went broke! I learned how to sew, embroider, and make hairbows in a matter of 3 months. What started as a hobby has turned into a dream come true. I quit my job as a teacher and now work from home when the little one sleeps. My life as a mommy and a boutique clothing designer/manufacturer/monogrammer is truly the best of both worlds!! I have big dreams for the future of my family and the future of SheShe Made. Thanks for joining me as I blog about the journey. Let me know if there is a bow or outfit you'd like custom made for you! Email me at and thanks for stopping by!
