Hoping Spring is Here to Stay

After having to deal with winter weather for what seemed like eternity in the month of March (picture above), I am hoping that this wonderful spring weather that has bestowed itself upon us, will hopefully decide to stay for a very long time. I am so done with the dreariness and gloominess and so ready to get out and till the ground so that we can enjoy a harvest of our own in our new backyard.

We Love The Snow!!!!

We love the snow. We love the snow. Did you know that we love the snow. I am sure that if we lived somewhere that always had snow we would say how much we love the beach. Enjoy the pics and videos of our fun in the snow.

Sometimes It Only Takes a Wave................ And A Muskrat

From the beginning, Cameron has had a little quirk that is quite interesting. When he gets exceptionally excited both hands curl up into fists, come right up next to his cheeks, and shakes. Hence the muskrat term. It really makes him look like a muskrat.

Today while walking Cameron to school, which is just around the corner, I had to just smile and laugh. I always walk Cameron to the end of the pedestrian walkway and watch him cross the parking lot. Today he stopped and waved, and I stopped and waved, and his little hands ran right up to his cheeks and the muskrat appeared. I walked a little further, turned around to make sure Cameron had made it safely past the construction gate only to find him about 2 feet from his original stopping area waving. I waved back and the muskrat appeared again. Again I walked a little further, turned around, and found Cameron waving again. Again I waved back and the muskrat appeared. This went on two more times before I made it back to the sidewalk and back home again. All I could do was smile. It really made my day that much better today. What a great little guy I have.

We Moved

Which means that our other home was sold. It was touch and go for awhile, but we are rid of our first ever bought home. We moved to a very quiet little neighborhood at the back of a court. It is so nice to be off of a busy street so my kids have room to run and play and not worry about a car flying around the bend toward them. I feel so much happier in our new rental. We are going to rent for awhile, but if this home were to ever come up for sale we would probably buy it. The kids rooms are very large, with some room still to grow. The kitchen is marvelous. The backyard has a beautiful swimming pool with an area already set up with a drip system if we find the time to get our garden in. We still have a lot of work to do. The previous tenants kind of let the yards go a bit, so when the weather finally gives up and brings spring here, we will be outside cleaning up the yard.

(If you are in need of our new address please feel free to send us a message and we will make sure you get it.)

My Princess

The Disney Store had a Princess Tea Party a few weeks back and thanks to cousin Julia who let us borrow her princess dress. Madeline really wanted to go as Alice, but it was a princess tea party. She makes the best Alice. She makes a good princess too, when she wants to be a princess. It was fun to see all the little girls in their different princess dresses and play cute little princess games. They even got to decorate at little princess tea cup to take home with them.

FOUND...Holiday Photos

I finally found my camera cord. HALLELUJAH!!! Don't ask how many boxes it took to find it either.

You'll have to start from the bottom of the post to get the full effect. I posted the pics and realized that I needed to reverse the order. Instead of messing with it I figured you could just start at the bottom instead of the top. I am just going to be lazy. Something I am perfecting very nicely.

And then it was all over
We opened lots of gifts from grandmas and grandpas, aunts and uncles, mommy and daddy, and of course, Santa
We stuffed many gifts under the tree for Christmas morning
We sprinkled our reindeer food so they would stop and snack for awhile
We opened our Christmas Eve pajamas
We made reindeer food for Santa's reindeer
We decorated the Tree
