Mason in the Cupboard

One of Mason's favorite things to do is open and close the drawers and cupboard doors in the kitchen.  It all started with us pulling out all the pots, pans and lids to make "music". 
Now it has translated into Mason making a mess out of every possible object that he can pull out of any of the drawers and cupboards that he can reach.  By 8 am the kitchen tends to look like this......... 
Today he took it to a whole new level.  While I was making hamburger patties he decided to not only pull everything out but to then climb in........

I am still not sure how he managed to get himself in there but I had to help him get out.  By the end of this he got out the wok (which is under the colanders in the back) and the rest of the big pots and lids.  I now regret not taking more pictures of the mess that he created today.  I do have a video but I am going to apologize before you watch it because once Mason sees or hears the video camera he throws a tantrum until he gets it so the end of the video is crazy because Mason is the film maker.

Sorry after many failed attempts and 3 hours later.....I am throwing in the towel of uploading the video.
I will share it with you all soon.

His other obsession right now it taking the brooms out from next to the refrigerator and try to "sweep" the floor. Oh how I wish he actually could help clean up his messes!

Weathering the Storm

Well last week was a crazy one.  We got hit with snow, then more snow, then more snow, then some freezing rain, then the wind picked up and then finally we lost power.  We thought we would only be out for a few hours so for the first night we decided to all sleep together and wake up to the heat being on and the power back on.....hahaha wishful thinking!!! Thankfully we had some great friends put us up for a night in a nice warm house after we found out that we were going to be lucky if we had power by Monday!  THANKS Justin, Jo and Nathan for letting us take over your house : )

The first of the snow.....and a tiny Mason snowman

One of the neighbor girls came over to help us out.
It was really cold so our snowman never got a face, scarf, or arms.....I know what you are all thinking...Mom of the year for the AWESOME snowman! hahahahaha

Once we were done outside we truly went stir crazy (that was BEFORE the power went out!)

 Snow after 2 days
Snow after 3 days.....notice that you can not see where the street is...
 Thinking we might dig a tunnel out of the house.
 Checking the weather.....
 Power out....refrigerator moved to the snow.
 The layer of ice on the snow.
 Getting ready for night fall.
 Playing with the candles.
 Snuggling to keep warm.
 Could you imagine what the big trees looked like?
 These ones survived even with all the ice on them.
 Trying to find out how long the power would be out for.
 Well thanks to the 3 days of no power we got to do our spring cleaning early!

As fast as the snow came it left.  On Friday, Mason and I enjoyed the crisp air and the nice sunny sky. 
 Went swinging.
 Walked up to go down the slide.
Look at me!!!

Overall we enjoyed being snowed in, but boy am I glad that it was only 5 days long!  I did not make it to work but at least with Tom's truck he was able to make it to and from work all week.  Mason and I were both bummed because we were suppose to have a play date at the aquarium with some friends, but we had to reschedule until next week, but we cannot wait!!!!!!
