The kids had a great time trick-or-treating.  Here is "A" getting into the spirit of Halloween!
a photo of the whole crew...
we have:
Anakin Skywalker, Spider Man, a ghost and a sweet little bee!
As we were going door to door trick-or-treating, we came across a house where they built a Halloween snow witch.  Of course I had to take a picture because you just never know when we will see snow again as early as Halloween!
We had a good time!!

Yes, it's that time again and "M" is playing little league this year.
Tryouts happened, teams have been chosen and Andy is helping coach. We've had 2 practices and so far "M" is really enjoying it.

We went over to the field one day to practice hitting balls and "N" likes to hit off of the tee.

A little batting practice for "M"

even "D" is getting in on the action.

Just like daddy.

Doesn't he look cool?

Little "A" watches from the stands while sipping her coffee.
The cup is empty, but she likes to pretend.
and these have nothing to do with baseball, but they were just so cute that I had to add them anyway

Have a great day everyone!

Snow Tubing!!

Okay, so I'm seeing a theme here....hmmm..SNOW! Have you noticed that several of my last posts have been about the SNOW we're getting?

It's pretty. Yes, I will admit that. But I do long for warmer weather. However, when life gives you lots and lots of snow...what do you do?? Why, you go tubing of course!

Well, this one didn't go tubing, but she looked so cute here in her little hat that I just had to throw in this photo.

The rest of us went tubing

and we had a very good time!
I was afraid to take the camera out on the mountain with us because I thought it might get wet or damaged or something. I wish now that I had, because it probably would have been okay. But we got these cute shots in the parking lot!
You should have seen these kids. They loved it! We all hooked our tubes together and went racing down the trail, wind in our hair, snow blowing in our faces and we loved the cold and the snow. The ice and the wet! It was great and with this kind of fun practically on our doorstep, I think I can tolerate the winter for a little while longer!

More Snow!

More snow fell yesterday and last night.
the kids are loving'm ready for spring!

Abigail keeps close watch on her brothers. I think she really wants to go out there. I told her she must be able to walk first!

So we kept warm inside...she enjoyed her teething ring and I enjoyed my cup of coffee.
Stay warm!

Happy New Year

We hope you all had a wonderful Christmas...

full of candy canes

and wonder.
We hope that the magic of the season touched each and every one of you.

As for the New Year....
I plan to get organized (again, I know)
do a little re-decorating...nothing huge, just some re-purposing and re-using what I already have. I love to do that. I love the challenge of making something new and useful out of something that no longer has a purpose.

Sort of like this...I simply LOVE this look

this one too!
I love to take inspiration from these photos and re-create them in our home.
We will be putting in some new floors. Right now they're all neatly stacked up in boxes in our living room.

See? I'm really excited to get them installed. We'll be starting that project very soon.
Another thing I'm enjoying doing more of is sewing. I've always loved to sew, but without a designated area for it, I rarely ever did. That has all changed. With my craft room now complete, that machine's been workin' overtime! I've made skirts for Abigail and baby leggings too. I just finished a project that involves an old, outdated sweater and a very worn out t-shirt. Re-purposing at it's best.

you can read more about that project by clicking here.
Anyway, lots going on in our neck of the woods and we're excited about it all!
Andy has his gym and I'm in love with my craft room!
The kids are enjoying their legos, books, action figures and Wii!
Lots to be thankful for!
We're going to be practicing our better look out. Anybody up for a challenge???
Okay, I better close for now but we'll keep you updated.
Happy New Year to you all. May you be abundantly blessed!
Also, a big, huge, giant thank you to all of you who voted for Abigail in the Gerber Photo Contest! We appreciate you taking the time to vote.

I'll leave you with some snow photos I took this morning. We woke up to the white stuff!

Enjoy your day.
