Life as a Lumber: what we’ve been up to

This weekend, it snowed again.

On Friday evening, It began snowing quickly (and sticking to the roads) while the kids were in dance rehearsal.

Which made for some scary driving, but we made it home.

We had a blast sledding
It was 25 outside, but 68 in our greenhouse
And we made some snow cream. Yum!

We made a YouTube video about our crazy snow experience! Watch to the end to see Emorie and I collide on our sleds.

Hope you have a GREAT Sunday! We have so many exciting things heading your way this week!

Life as a Lumber: what we’ve been up to

Get ready to read the most boring “ what we’ve been up to” you’ve ever read. Why is it boring? Because my household caught Covid and we have been up absolutely nothing. Except resting, drinking fluids and trying to feel better.

Check out Emorie’s new shirt! She got it for Christmas and we love it!

On Monday, we woke up to one of the scariest storms I’ve ever seen. I live in North Carolina, so I have seen some pretty scary storms. The wind was howling and it was pouring rain. Mid morning, that turned into snow! It didn’t last long, but it was pretty. This was taken from my classroom window.

I posted this on Instagram last week before it snowed. It was accurate, since we went straight from 75 degree days to wind and snow 🤣🤣

My ten year old no longer wants to wear hair bows, so she passed all of hers to my six year old. I had no idea we had so many bows.

We always have the traditional New Years meal with my mother-in-law’s family, but this year, she and my father-in-law delivered the meals to family. It was still delicious.

We were invited to go skating last weekend by some sweet friends. The girls didn’t quite get the hang of it, but they had fun.

I had some gift cards to spend from Christmas, so I bought this picture. It has silkies on it, so it’s perfect for me. They look just like our chickens.

We are on the mend over here, but still quarantined. Thanks for sticking with me and reading to the end of that boring post. Hope to see you next weekend with a more interesting post.

Life as a Lumber: what we’ve been up to!

First of all, HAPPY NEW YEAR!

We have had a very good Christmas break but tomorrow, we are going to be back to normal. We had a much need slow down and we all enjoyed the rest.

Christmas was a blast! We ran around like chickens with our heads cut off- we managed to visit all of our family, and although it was crazy tiring, it was so worth it.

Here are some highlights from our vacation:

And the state of Virginia always has hilarious signs on the interstate. Last year it said, “he sees you when you’re speeding.”

We will see you this week with the following posts:

1. Shed reorganization

2. DIY coffee bar

3. Five Friday Favorites: my favorite fitness goodies

Have a fantastic Sunday!

Life as a Lumber: What We’ve Been Up To

We are all FINALLY out of school. Friday was a half day for me and the girls. We have had quite a busy weekend but it has been a blast!

Earlier this week, we visited a beautiful town about an hour away from our house. The town is beautifully decorated and we got some great pictures.

The kids had practice for their dance competition team on Friday. The dance director took these amazing pics of our girls.

On Saturday, we went to see The Nutcracker with some sweet friends of ours. We had so much fun.

On Sunday, we had our children’s Christmas play at church. The kids did a great job!

This week, we will be sharing some handcrafted Christmas trees, our Christmas home tour and also a Christmas traditions list.

Have a wonderful week!

Life as a Lumber: What We’ve Been Up To

Boy, have we been busy lately.

In the past few weeks, our girls have participated in a dance convention

Aaaaand the biggest little Lumber

We traveled to West Virginia to enjoy Thanksgiving with my side of the family for the first time in two years . We ate two Thanksgivings in North Carolina, too.

And then our kids participated in the local Christmas parade with our dance studio.

And then we took some Christmas pictures…more about that later.

I hope you are all well and happy, dear readers! I can’t wait to share some Christmas goodness with you this week.
