We finally got snow!!!!

We woke up this morning to approximately 6 inches of snow!
Our first actual accumulation of the year!
Our patio furniture...
Parker was so excited to have a snow day and couldn't wait to go outside and play in the snow.

He quickly discovered the snow was too powdery to build a snowman and so he played with the neighbor kids for quite a while. Some time later, I heard a knock on the garage door and opened it to find a crying 6 year old boy that was very cold...He said he feet were so cold they were burning! I quickly got him out of his wet clothes and had him lay by the fireplace to warm his feet. (What a mess those wet clothes are! Now I know why my mom didn't like for Jeff and I to play outside in the snow!) A warm bath quickly helped those frozen piggies and he was as good as new! I think we need to invest in some good snow boots before we let him go outside and play in the snow again!
It's sleeting here right now and we're supposed to get more snow tonight, so there's a chance that school will be cancelled again tomorrow! I'm scheduled to work tomorrow so they'll be with Grandma Sheila! :o)

We're diaper free...Yipee!

I didn't want to post this too soon because I didn't want to jinx us, but after six years I think we are finally diaper free! (Doing Angie's happy dance right now!) Peyton decided a couple of weeks ago that he wanted to wear big boy undies! He got some in his stocking, we tried pull ups for a few days and he did really well! He was having trouble going poo in the potty and kept saying he didn't know how! I decided to try the big boy undies and figured he would either poop his pants or constipate himself! It took him a couple of days and I think he's finally figured it out! We're still using pull-ups at night and he cries every time he has to put them on! I can't believe after 6 years of carrying a diaper bag every where we went, I can actually carry a purse again! I'm sooooo glad to be out of the baby stage, never again to return either!!! :) Now if I can just get him to tell me when he needs wiped!!! Tonight he went poo in the potty, didn't wipe himself and didn't tell me until a few minutes later. So...we had a little mess in the undies department! :(

Yeah for Peyton, we're so proud of you!!

Acting like his daddy...

Happy Birthday old man!!!

I'm busy taking down Christmas decorations but wanted to take a minute to wish my husband a very "Happy 33rd Birthday!" (You won't hear me making fun of his age, because I robbed the cradle 12 plus years ago!!!)
It seems like since the twins were born, he gets a bit jipped for his birthday celebrations! Their birthday is tomorrow. He wants to go out for dinner for his birthday supper and that is fine with me!!! I offered to cook but his excuse was he didn't want me to have to spend all afternoon and evening in the kitchen! :)

Sorry for the silent blog since Christmas! We've actually been very busy the past 2 weeks and for some reason, my laptop won't recognize my memory stick so I can't upload any new photos! Grrrrrrr..... I do believe someone sold us a lemon!

We enjoyed the Christmas season but are glad to be getting back to a normal routine as of tomorrow! Jonathan was off work from December 18th until today and said he might even work a double shift just to get out of the house longer! I think 18 days of being home 24/7 was about all he could take! My schedule was horrible this year, I think I worked about every other day the entire time he was off work! I love my job, but every year at Christmas, I ask myself why I chose this profession!!!

Anyway, hope everyone is having a Happy New Year so far, is still keeping all of their resolutions and getting back to normal! More to come, right now we've got to make a quick trip to Hallmark for birthday cards!!

Happy Birthday Jonathan!!!!
