Cats in the Tree

Our Christmas tree went undecorated during most of the season. I'll give you a hint . . . . . .

The kids have been having fun in the snow. Friday, Scott took them sledding while I was home with the stomach flu. Saturday, I took them sledding while Scott was home with the stomach flu. Today we went out and made this in our front yard. . . . . .

It's a snowbear. It was supposed to be a snowman but the head broke as we were putting it up and it ended up looking more like a bear. I love bears so it worked out good. It's over 6 feet tall!!!

We hope everyone had a terrific Chirstmas. We spent a wonderful morning at home opening and play with gifts. Then we traveled to my parents house and had a yummo dinner and opened and played some more. We had such a wonderful Christmas!!! It's hard to believe that a month ago we didn't know how it was going to happen. So grateful for parents and friends who helped out soooooo much!! We Love You!!!!!

I love Christmas but hate the week after, such a let down after a month of planning and organizing and giving. We really need to look all year round on how to serve others. This is one of my goals this next year.

Hope you all have a Wonderful New Years!!!!!

I can't get my pictures to download so I will have to add those later.

My baby is five.


Joey turned 5 on the 21st. I can't believe my baby is 5. I don't know what I will do when he is school. He is my little buddy and goes everywhere with me. He is such a funny little kid and always keeps us laughing. He is always willing for hugs.

He loved the Wall-E movie, so we gave him a Wall-E party. Here is a picture of our Wall-E parade.

Happy Birthday Son!!!! We all love you soooo much!!

Trent's a Hero

The kids have a Stand and Shout assembly at the end of every month. Here they award a kid out of every class that has done something exceptional during the month. This month Trent got the "Hero" award. One of the kids in his class was cold and didn't have a coat. Trent had on a sweatshirt and a hoodie jacket, so he gave the kid his hoodie to wear during recess. His teacher noticed this and put Trent up for the award. Trent has always looked out for others and this makes me so proud of him.


I'm going to try to catch up with some pictures. This is Joey's first day of Preschool. . . . . he didn't want me to walk him into class. "I can go all by myself". Oh my baby boy!

Great Friends

front: me and Gwen
back: Barb, Brandi, and Nancy

We are all saying "Hi" to Miss I
who was on a bowling leaque, thus,
the sign language "i".

I have some great friends that I have met online, through a stamping site. I was lucky to be able to meet some of them and spend and evening with them. They all (even those who I have not met yet) have become very special people to me.
