Snow Day

Finally, we have enough snow to build a snowman.

We had a snowball fight, built the snowman, had another snowball fight........

Then we decided to walk up to the school. The snow was so pretty. No one had been up there and there were no tracks anywhere. So we had to change that. We walked a few laps around the track and then headed to the playground, to have yet another snowball fight. We also made snowangels on the front entry way. It was alot of fun.

The snow was perfect. It was easy to quickly pack together a snowball.

I am glad that this is my weekend off. I have actually been able to get out and enjoy the snow and got some exercise in too. It felt good getting outside in the fresh air and not having to rush to do anything or trying to do twenty things at the same time. All I had to do was make a snowball and hit whoever I was aiming at.

I did manage to get some cleaning and laundry done. I can't stand it if I don't do at least one load of laundry a day.

Hope you guys are enjoying the snow too........

The Gang

We managed to get everyone together for a family picture, so I thought I'd share them with you!!

I haven't blogged in quite some time. I have meant to, but just haven't.

Since my last post was in November, I guess I have a bit of catching up to do.

We did the Christmas thing (thank goodness that is over) it is soooooo stressfull anymore.

I really think I could just skip it.

Then comes Jan., we are busy at work still with all the returns and the bounce back from the holiday season. Bounce back also means, cleaning.......YUK!!!!!! We have to take down all the holiday signs and such and clean everything. Then there is the beginging of the clearance process of all things winter. Gloves, hats, scarves, etc.... Get rid of all you can before the summer stuff arrives. Like the bathing suits that start coming in before the end of Jan.

It still amazes me how many people buy bathing suits in Jan. and Feb. I guess they have to get one before Spring Break.

As for the kids, they are doing just dandy. Lindsey is definately a girl......her world revolves around her cell phone, makeup, shopping, wanting to hang out with her friends and talk about boys, and primping. I don't think she can pass by a mirror without checking her hair and makeup. She has also become Miss Attitude. Questions everything........and she's only 12.

Another thing she loves to do is take her picture. She does it constantly and is actually pretty good at it. She can set the timer or just hold the camera and take her own picture, and they are pretty good shots. She is so photogenic.

Adam is busy with his classes and working. He is still working in the afterschool program 3 days a week and working in the Alumni Office at Western 2 days a week. He does find time to hang out with his friends and of course attend Westerns ballgames. He is planning to go to Cancun for Spring Break. He has never been in an airplane, and is a bit apprehensive about it.

Hartsul comes to visit almost every weekend. He usually finds something to keep himself busy. He is always on the move, usually kicking or tossing a ball of some sort. We have a big yard and he loves getting out and playing.
Michael spends his time working. He is either at his office working, at the dinning room table working or on the phone working. He does manage to play some ball with the kid and is always willing to help with homework (especially math) if needed.
Well that is what we have been up to lately.......
Try to stay warm all, talk to you soon.
