Finally a really good snow..

The school was on a 2 hour delay. So the boys had just enough time to build a snowman and do some sleigh riding before school.

Here are a few picture from this mornings fun!

The boys went for a sleigh ride. We have our own built in slope in our front yard.

These are the trees in our yard



I love this big evergreen.
Isn't the snow beautiful on its branches?


I couldn't resist taking a picture of the freshly painted fire hydrant against the white snow.


This snow was great for making snowmen.


Mckay texting his friends.


Seth after his sleigh crashed.

Of course now most of the snow has melted. But the boys had a wonderful time this morning. Gotta live life in the moment sometimes.

Even though Michael was still feeling bad. He sneaked a peek from the window..

So far so good!

I'm doing great on my list so far this year?

I have been scrapbooking and running a lot.

As soon as Mckay gets up we are going out for a run today.

The gals at church are going to start scrapbooking once a month again. We will see how that goes.

Plus I'm going to meet Jodie and scrap with her at the scrapbook store at least once a month.. maybe even twice a month.

I'm super excited about that.

It nice to have a friend to scrapbook with again. Seems like I get more accomplished when I'm away from home.

There is a huge online crop at scrapbookfriends till valentine's Day. I hoping to get alot accomplished there too!

Although this is a really busy month for me.

I will start working at mom's at the end of the month for Valentines Day.

And also, I signed up to deliver phone books again. The boys enjoy helping. It will be fun and a little extra cash for them too!

Plus I have a nice order for some embroidery I need to finish really quick!

The weather has been crazy here lately to warm for January.. but I'm not going to complain cause I hate running when it's really cold outside.

There is a 5k here in town in February. Hoping to be ready to run that one..since Mckay's Track and Cross Country take up a lot of time and are scheduled at the same time as the 5K races.

Wow this is a long blog entry today!

If you got this far thanks!!

Have a Happy Day!
