Much Needed Girl Time...

      Oh my, where have I been??? Can you say stomach bug, flu, upper respiratory, sinus infection, and then dear ol' mom got a really bad UTI!!! Yikes, it was a wild week and a half. I am praying that everyone stays well for awhile now....please Lord! So we haven't been out of our little cabin here for awhile, so glad we had some beautiful weather this last weekend. Madi, my mom, and I did a little shopping on Saturday, which was nice, except for the whole bathingsuits are out thing??? I know they come out early every year, but I just think it is rude!!

      On Saturday night the men folk went to the Outdoor Sports Banquet, while the ladies went over to Mrs. Shania's house for dinner and conversation! Kids were included with the meal too! But that was ok, they were all great! She made some awesome white chicken chili, oh my, I ate two bowls of it, so good!!!
         PS. We missed you Mrs Walker!!! Was so looking forward to seeing you!! :(
Lily, Lauren, and Madi

Lily, Carson, Madi, Hudson, and Lauren- There were several more, but they didn't stop to eat!

Mandi, Shania, and Tonia- you can tell they were loving the spring time weather, with their pretty yellow shirts!

Me and Stacy

Madi during the "fashion show", she had so much fun with the girls, Lauren even painted her fingernails for her, thanks Lauren, she loves them! :)

And Miss Lily, sweet as pie, during her runway walk.

Thanks Shania and all the ladies for a great night!

PS- I have some more posts coming, something big for our family is coming, and no I am not pregnant! Ha!!

The Dreaded Bug....

      The stomach bug has invaded our house....yuck! And this little girl has been it's first victim, poor thing, I think she is the one who had it last year around this time too. I am praying that noone else gets it, especially the littlest one or the biggest one, if you know what I mean ladies...the dreaded sick husband...just sayin'....
I hope you get well soon my sweet Madi Bell! It's just not like you to not sing and dance around all the time.

And to all of you that are sufferring from any kind of illness going around, I pray you get better too! It just seems so bad right now.

P.S. Prayers for you my sweet TH and your kiddo's, hope you get better soon!

Snow Day

      Well it wasn't a lot of snow, but we managed to go out and play in it anyways! Here are a few pics of the kids playing, having a snow ball fight with Eric, who has no mercy on these poor babies, he acts like he is 12 again, and we rode all the ride on toys for like 30 minutes, then they died from it being so cold!
I put out my winter flag just in time for the snow.

Cooper and Tristan, driving Tristan's old gator, which he still tells Coop, "it's mine, but you can drive it", something about a ride on toy!

Made Bell and me

Madi Bell was getting into throwing snow balls at Tristan.

And the "big" kid throwing snow balls, I literally have to get on to him like a kid.

Tristan just got "hit", nothing like a good ol' wet snowball!

Tristan, Madi, Eric, and Coop

Tristan, Madi, Heather, and Coop

We had fun while it lasted, but I am sure glad it is melting! I am not enjoying such cold weather, ready for some sunshine, flowers, green grass, and some pool time!!

First Snow, Moss Balls, and Sugar Cookies!

     It is January 9, 2011 and we are having our first snowfall of this year. It is really pretty, even though it gets messy!
This is early when it first is definetly covered now this evening. Cooper has told me 20 times it is snowing, so cute!! He is ready to go out in it and play!

And now for some moss balls....I couldn't resist, had to have and Madi went to Hobby Lobby yesterday just to get some! This one has landed here, but may be moved, it has two siblings too, and then there are some children of it too, that will need to find a home. But I love them!!! Thanks SW for posting them and for the inspiration...I have needed some after you take down the Christmas decor inspiration, it seems so boring around here!

Here is little Coop enjoying some sugar cookies I made on this snowy afternoon. And might I say, I am really a chocolate lover, but there is something about these sugar cookies that I just can't resist! They are not being very kind to the waistline either...

Little Miss Madi Bell helping with the cookies, pink and purple icing per her request, blue and green for the boys, go figure!

I hope everyone is enjoying some good family time during this cold, snowy day!!!
I know we are!!

New Year's Eve Date Night!!!

      We went out on New Year's Eve with a great bunch of friend's to eat at Sho Gun's, which was so, so good!!! Afterwards some of us went to see Little Focker's, which was so funny! We had a great evening, glad to spend it with friends. After the movies, Eric and I went to pick up our kids at the party they were at and ended up staying there and ringing in the New Year with our kiddo's, they were going strong at midnight still!! Here are a couple pictures of our evening. We missed all the other couple's that didn't get to come!!!
Shannon, Me, and Stacy
