Waiting for the Storm

It’s supposed to storm tonight and so we’re all just waiting for it to storm. The weather isn’t sure if there is going to be rain, 1-3 or more inches of snow or maybe nothing. We’ll just have to wait and see! Right now there’s not a whole lot going on at the moment, so I thought I would share with you a couple of pictures.

E and I went out to eat at McDonalds and he tried fries dipped in a shake. Yum! I love this picture because it’s shows his missing two front teeth. Aww!

I was in Family Dollar the other day and saw this display. I’m not quite sure they know what lingerie is or maybe I’ve been wrong this entire time. Hahaha!!!

Ready for Spring!

Hello world! Spring has been teasing me lately! It will be cold, then turn warm. Saturday it was 42 degrees F! It made me start wanting to plan my ! I walked around and looked at my little orchard and they are starting to bud! 😀

In the meantime, life has been…normal. We had a bunch of snow the first part of February and we had a snow day! The boys and I built a giant snowman…or at least giant for us! We could barely lift the body and head!

That sun's bright mom!

Our snowman
Our snowman-like the pot for a hat?
Better run!

The boys had a good Valentine’s Day! They each got a candy bouquet-the Junior class was selling them and so I bought each boy one. I also made heart shaped Rice Krispie treats with red sprinkles as a treat for the boys’ classes, but didn’t take a picture of them. Believe me, they didn’t last long!

Excited about getting a candy bouquet on Valentine's Day!

I tried to take a picture of the other boys with theirs, but I think it was gone in 0.5 seconds! Haha! I also made appreciation cards for each of the elementary school boys’s teachers. I know it shouldn’t matter but I really meant what I said and I didn’t get a thank you or even an acknowledgement for giving them something. The cards were attached to a cookie that I bought from the Junior class.
