Being Brickner : A Snowy Weekend

A Snowy Weekend

Kind of.

First, we hope those of you who were affected by this blizzard of 2016 are safe, warm, & that you had a wonderful time enjoying the snow with your sweet families.  Here in Virginia Beach, per usual, the whole city pretty much freaked out and prepared for the worst, and we ended up with a whole lot of rain & sleet, and just a little bit of snow.  We were definitely hoping for at least a little more (like maybe enough for a snowman!), but we made the most of the dusting that we got.

Avalon was all about it and would have stayed all day, so very true to her, nothing phases that little lady!  Waverly Maye, who begged me to go out, was definitely a little more skeptical.  One second she was cold & over it, the next the world was literally ending because the snowflakes "are not falling fast enough!  Mom, make them fall faster!!". 

For the record, I really think she is convinced I have that ability.

We made soup, cupcakes, & blueberry pancakes, played endless games of hide & seek, and ventured outside a few more times.  By Sunday afternoon, all of what we got was completely melted away.  Dare I say we wouldn't mind if we get one more visit before this winter is over?!  I know those of you who are digging yourselves out of inches of snow at the moment officially think I'm cray.

And now, it's back to regularly scheduled programming.  Wishing you all a happy, happy week!!

PS - Two little PSA's.  One, because I'm obsessed with babes in holidays jams, did you all see that Gap has their Easter pajamas out?!  LOVE these for the little ladies and these for the little men, too cute!  And two, Brickyard Buffalo has Babylit books on sale this week, I got them for the girls Easter baskets way too early. ;)  Happy shopping!

  1. I guess I just assumed you guys got a lot of snow too! We got 30 inches here! And even with that much I don't think you're crazy... Maybe cause my husband did the cleanup ;). One more snowfall will be nice, but much more than that could get a little annoying. And thanks for the PSA on gap pjs!

  2. Cracks me up that Waverly wanted the snow to fall faster! We didn't get as much here as they predicted but have no school again today. Crazy!!

  3. Awwww man, that stinks y'all didn't get much. I'd share mine with you if I could, we got two feet.

    Your pancakes look delicious, I made funfetti ones this weekend and they were perfect with the snow.

    Lils in the SNOW are too cute.

  4. Avalon!! That sweet girl looks so happy in every picture and like she's loving the snow! I mean, how could you not when you look that cute all bundled like a marshmallow? Glad you guys got to have a little fun in the snow before it melted!

  7. Baby in a snowsuit. RIP me. I didn't think A could get any cuter. But, you did it. I'm dead.

  8. Another PSA - babyGAP sale is an additional 50% off! I may have to break my spending freeze! I can't believe you guys didn't get any snow!! We got NOTHING, which is so weird, but we already have enough, and I am sure we will get more. I love that Waverly thinks you can make it snow faster...these kids! Ha!! Have a great week!!

  9. Look at that little snow baby! So adorable! Bundled up babies are the cutest. It looks like she really enjoyed the snow :) It sounds like a nice weekend, even if you only got a light dusting of snow - it's more than we got!

  10. Avalon is the perfect snow baby! And Liam also thinks I have magical powers; it's hilarious!

  11. So much for all that snow you were supposed to get! They still look adorable though even though Waverly was upset with the speed LOL!

  12. Aww that's too bad you didn't get that much, you could have had some of ours! I grew up at the beach too so it was always the same, instead of snow days we had flood days. My hometown had serious flooding with this storm, so sad. Love Avalon's bunting :)

  13. Meanwhile, we have zero snow, and wishing we had even a dusting. Though the storm looked like zero fun (inches upon inches), we'd gladly take a few of those to play in for a couple days.
    Also. There is nothing cuter than little ones all bundled up. Waverly and Avalon are adorable, as usual. And now I'm off to check out pjs. :)

  14. OMG, I cannot get over the baby in a snowsuit. Dying. That alone was worth all the trouble and all the hype about the snow. Cutest thing ever!

  15. Such sweet pictures of your beautiful girls! We didn't get as much as anticipated, either. 1-2 inches, and it was gone by Sunday!
