20 years ago

20 years ago today I became a mommy for the first time to this awesome young man. I think you all know by now if you have read at least one post on this blog about just how proud I am of him. He is a young man following what the Lord has planned for him and living his dream all at the same time. He is so blessed and such a blessing to all that know him. There is sooooo much more I want to write but I can't see thru the tears so I'll stop for now.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY A#1!!! You are the best son in the world and I thank God for you being in our lives!!!

Stir crazy part 2

Take a couple of picture frames left over from black Friday, some scrapbook paper, chipboard letters and some ribbon and you will have another project to occupy yourself while trapped/snowed in the house.

Trying not to go stir crazy

What do you get when you take some clearance Christmas chargers,
and a cricut machine?
Cute huh? Prop one up on a plate easel and there you have an instant Valentine decoration.

I think they turned out adorable. Now I have to decide what to do with them because I've made 4 so far. Can you tell I'm trying not to go stir crazy?

Happy Birthday Momma

Today is my mom's 60Th birthday!!! Unfortunately she will probably not see this because she is in Hawaii!!!! and who would go all the way to Hawaii and take time to read a silly blog? Have a great birthday Mom and have a blast on your trip. We love you and are sooooo thankful for you!!

Warning: It looks like every post this winter will be about...

SNOW!! And more SNOW!! It started again Friday morning and kept going all day. A#2 was wanting to go outside so badly she was willing to shovel so we let her. She went out for about an hour by herself until she finally realized we let her sweep and shovel while it was still snowing so she wasn't making much progress.
And there's the face she made when I told her to just give up and come inside. They are going so stir crazy around here because there was school only one day last week and that was on Thursday with a 2 hour delay and then Friday was cancelled before the snow even began.
I have decided that our yard is starting to resemble a parking lot with one of those big, gross piles of snow that will be around until April.

This is just a hint of what me and hubby shoveled Saturday morning.

We were able to get out for a while on Saturday and went for a few visits and made it to Starbucks. We came home to play in the snow and had some company in the evening.

My sister and her family made it over and we had a blast. This is hubby with our nephew Foster. Hubby and the B I L made a path for our snow tube and put a wall/ramp at the end of it so there were no wrecks. It was PERFECT!!!

Hubby with A#3.

Dee tried out the sled at first.

This is the path, looking from the bottom to the top. PERFECT!!

Dee decided to give the tube a try.

A#3 on the tube.

The best part of the whole day was when my mom made her way over and took a few turns on the tube. We laughed so hard and she had a blast.

She took the kids on a few rides with her until we had to cut her off for fear of someone getting hurt. ;)
Me and the girls will probably be in the house most of the week again, we are expecting more snow on Tuesday but we will not complain. My in laws are among the No Va folks and Maryland folks that got over 2 feet!! They have lost all power and are expecting more as well this week. Hang in there everyone!

Snow and lots of pj's

Snow, snow, glorious snow!! We got it again and there are lots of people that were not happy about it, hubby included, but there were lots of us that don't mind it for a second.The first go around in December we got about 18 inches but this time it was right around 11 and it was beautiful. There is just something about looking outside and seeing the freshness of it all, before all the kiddos start plowing thru it and all the adults start shoveling it for hours at a time.
The 2 girlie's were bundled up and headed out for their first round of frolicking.

Silly faces.

This was later on when they were on round 2. Oh that smile gets me every time!!

Blurry pic of A#2 and Daddy coming down the hill. Soooo much fun!!

For some reason A#2 looks a little frightened.

All the neighborhood kids wanted their turn.

This was around 7:30 in the evening when it started snowing again.
Hubby waiting for his turn.

Mommy's snow baby.

Mommy's snow man! :)
When we weren't in our snow clothes we spent the rest of the weekend in our pj's. So much so that this morning I did a load of laundry that consisted of nothing but.... pj's. I'd say it was a GREAT weekend!!
