Let it Snow!!!

Finally it has happened!! The long awaited white snowflakes from heaven are finally here!! Last night about 7 :20 it started coming down like crazy as I awaited a lady I took to get medication at the target parking lot! It was so beautiful and thick  almost felt like Christmas :) Garrison had stayed home from School as he had caught some sort of stomach virus , but has quickly recovered.  We at breakfast , my favorite childhood winter breakfast, Hot Chocolate w/whip with Toast to dip.YUMMY! After much anxiousness the kids and I finally made it outside to sled with our make shift Sleds (tote lids and hampers). I guess the Snow has mixed to well with the sleet cause we just sank right down and after about 10 mins of Crying about cold hands and snowballs to the fast we piled back inside to the warmth. We have had a lovely day just being together and relaxing... Alas Ainsley is now not feeling well so I pray that this only lasts a short time like Garrisons Did... So heres to the Snow it was fun while it lasted!!!

Our Days

After I found my hidden energy with a about 2000mg of B12 , Ainsley and I worked on her Alphabet ..So Funny how a little brain of a 4yr old works, Love it! We began to listen to an alphabet Cd and flipped thru flashcards while she sang into the karaoke mic, quite pleased with her personal singing talent. Next we made a house, Flower garden , pool , and wrap around fence  and 2 princess crowns with Neon Connector blocks , Which Looked Quite flattering on us if we do say so ourselves!lol
 I find it  amusing how Children can learn more from play ,and hands on  time spent with them  than from books sometimes!

 I have enjoyed being a Mommy , along with the "other" things God has chosen to designate me for in this lifetime..EVERYDAY is an adventure!! Tiring? YES! Messy? Yes!!!!! I would not change it for anything , Ill have plenty of time for rest and "clean" when the nest is empty:( So heres to today Crayon marks on the wall, Dolls and transformers scattered about, dishes in the sink, but most of all HAPPY Children:)

New Year...New things

Barely into 2010 and already fantastic things have happened. Brandon and I spent most of our time organizing and weeding out bags of excess clutter on New Years Day.. Literally it was a 10 hr cleaning day, but at the end of the day..WOW what a feeling!! Not sure why New Years always seem like you walk thru an u known diminsion, but it sure feels like a second chance or a restarting point, so ill take it.. New Years service was by far the most amazing one we have ever had pastoring, so a heavy presence of the Lord.. Sat Night prayer was wonderful, God filled a sweet new lady with the Holy Ghost during prayer meeting , and today was just as wonderful! I can hardly wait to see what all is in store for this year, but I know it ll be beyond anything I could have prayed for..I have personally request that i have been taking before the Lord for a very long time know and Im believing this is the season!! So heres to a wonderful new year with many fantastis GOD things ahead
