This morning I got to wake up to this.......................
Isn't this just beautiful the fresh falling of snow on the bare trees? Or do you see what I see?? 

Most of the time when it looks like this I'd rather just keep the curtains closed, close my eyes, head back to bed, or maybe a pj day with the girls curled up on the couch watching cartoons and movies. I really debated all these options but instead.......... I took on the day by waking up, taking a shower, getting dressed (which was a difficult task today), got the girls breakfast, dressed, boots, coats, hats, mittens, and out the door  for MOPS. God must of known exactly what I needed today, maybe because he read my blog yesterday :) but today the girls enjoyed playing in the nursery and preschool rooms while I got to enjoy time with others moms learning about how to organize our lives and not feel overwhelmed by the craziness of toddlers and preschoolers. I felt refreshed and ready to tackle some of the challenges of being a mommy! 

Since your probably wondering why the getting dressed for the day was my most difficult task for the day this picture says it all..................

Don't worry mom this is the first task I started to tackle when I got home and hopefully with the help of these little girls we will have accomplished the "mountain" of laundry by the end of the day!!
Yes Introducing to you my Laundry warriors Teagan and Harper who will be learning colors today by sorting the pinks and purples, they will be learning how to add and subtract by counting the # of loads there are, and they will be learning chemistry by adding stain stick and detergent to each load :)

  1. Good for you! Glad MOPS was especially relevant for you. I read somewhere the tip of putting a load of laundry in the wash first thing every morning to help stay on top of stuff and thought that kind of made sense. Rather than let it pile up too much, just break it down to a daily task. It doesn't happen for me on days I work, but when I'm home I try to stick by it.
