Winter Wonderland

What a wonderful day... snow, presents, family... it couldn't be any better!

Here is the view from outside the office window!

This is Jerry's car as seen from the garage. The drifts were piling up around it.

Fortunately, a kind gentleman was here to help scoop us out.

Hi, thanks Dad!!

The rest of the kiddos were able to make it by snowmobile. :-)

Hail, Hail, the gangs all here!!!

Preparing for Christmas

The boys were busy this weekend getting ready for Christmas! They helped decorate the tree and helped make their first gingerbread house.

Here they are in front of their "beautiful" tree as Carter called it.

The house didn't turn out too bad... of course, they had lots of help from us. If you ask the boys what their favorite part of decorating the gingerbread house was they will tell you "the frosting"!

Raise your hand...

... if it is your birthday today!

That's right, my baby turns 4 today. Here he is at his Christian play days program.

Puppy Charlie

We had a visitor for Thanksgiving. Charlie is staying for a few days while Ty and Jenna are down in Arkansas. Doesn't he look thrilled? Poor little guy is tired from the boys chasing him around the house all day!

Now who wouldn't love this face??

The Gang

You know, when you release these three at a football game...

...someone is bound to get hurt!

Unfortunately on this occasion, it would be Mason who wound up with a butterfly stitch to close the hole in his forehead.

Busy is not the word for it!!

I know, I know... I haven't blogged for a month and a half. Life has been pretty crazy around here! Here is a list of the things that have interfered with my blogging... work, school (twins are in preschool now), football, volleyball, cheerleading, photography, and last but not least PACKING. Did I ever tell you how much I hate packing/moving? It has taken over all of the free time I used to enjoy. :-( The good news is that the big moving day is tomorrow, and hopefully we can return to some type of normalcy in our lives. Here are a few scrapbook pages I have found time to complete in the last month. For credits, click here.

Sad, but true...

... Summer is quickly coming to an end. The summer has been fun, but it will be nice to get back to a normal schedule. Although I will miss the sleeping in part!

Unexpected visitors

Mowing came to a halt yesterday when this little fellow showed up.

He had been in his nest in our backyard along with his six siblings.

They were frightened by the mower and small curious children, and they all took off out of the nest.

This little fellow sought refuge under the warmth of the mower and didn't want to leave.

The boys wanted to keep him, but he was gently placed back where he belonged.
