Check this out!!!

OK, I don't know if I am approaching panic due to my upcoming age, or if I am just brave. Check out what I had my friend to ,my hair this time around. I love it. I have been out a few times and gotten several compliments on it. Of course they are usually young teenage girls but a compliment is a compliment, right! This is a self portrait so do critique my photography skills!

A break from the snow ?

Well according to the weather guy it is just a break. We are expecting more snow tonight and tomorrow morning. At our house we have 26 1/2 inches, give or take, in our back yard. We are getting cabin fever and we still have a few Christmas presents to buy, we'll see!!

Snow a plenty!!

Snowed In !!!!!

We are 14 inches of snow and counting. Blayne and I had to shovel a path in the backyard because it got so bad Roxy (our lab) would not go outside to go to the bathroom. It is beautiful, as long as I don't have to drive in it. Blayne and I drove up to Lacey, Washington for the weekend (kid free). They are having our same weather up there. We had a lot of fun, the drive home was slow and icy but it was completely worth it. We came home to 2-3 inches of ice on top of 12 inches of snow covering everything at home.

We Wish You A Merry Christmas.........

So we have been enjoying such beautiful snow in our part of town, but this mom is going to go crazy before winter break ends. Bad timing that school was called of the entire week before winter break. I am glad I love my children! (or they are lucky I love them anyway) We actually have been having a lot of fun. The kids and I made some fudge on Monday, decorated cookies on Tuesday (thanks Jack) then today we dipped marshmallows in chocolate then made a brownie/chocolate/candy cane treat. It was messy but we had fun. I love the Christmas Season, Merry Christmas!!

The Snowflake Tree

So we started a tradition in our family. We decorate our tree in snowflakes and snowflakes only. Every year I buy a new snowflake for each child. My Family has a tradition of an ornament exchange, each year we alternate who buys ornaments for who, my older sister started with buying me these beautiful glass snowflakes. Thus the snowflake tradition started.
