Today I left our house for the first time since Sunday.  By myself.  It was glorious!! 
Our school was closed both yesterday and today due to ice on some of the secondary roads.  Our driveway and neighborhood are pretty clear , so we made plans to get out for a playdate on Thursday.  But, Anna Cate woke up with a stomach bug.  I braced myself all day for the other 3 to follow suit, but so far so good and Anna Cate was feeling better by last night. 
This stay-at-home week was an unexpected treat, but I think we are all ready for our normal routine to resume.  Or should I say I am ready.

However, I have a feeling the babies will miss the constant attention and impromptu tea parties that require they dress "fancy"
