BRRRRRRRRRRRRR!!! Is it COLD enough for you yet! LOL! I am so not liking it! BUT I am LOVING the sunshine... so I guess for now I will take it! and an ice fire to go along with that cold!! :)

That photo is from the snow we had in Dec.! But I am TRYING to learn my PSE, I finally figured out how to add the frames... that only took me 8 months! LOL! ok not really BUT! I found an online tutorial and once I saw it I got that part... now to get over the other bumps in the road I have with my PSE! I will be a beginner in no time!! :)

Not to much EXCITING happening here, but yet we seem to be so darn busy! Got some EARLY spring cleaning done! Big runs to the Goodwill and dump! YEAH! they have needed to be done! It is so nice to know it is DONE! of course today I got a note from Amandas class about needing old shirts for the art project for the auction... SIGH! all of them went on sunday! BUT I did manage to find her a tshirt! (hee hee! we still have to much stuff! LOL!) Steve is busy with work, I think he enjoys the new group he is in, a bit different from his old group! Justin and Amanda are still loving school! Gonna look into some golf and music lessons for Justin, and MAYBE baseball for Amanda... she isnt 100% sure! I need to find some sort of dance lesson too, so many of them are year long programs.. I want like a 6 weeker so we can see if she will like it! She wants to play SOCCER this fall!!! :) and me well the usual, house stuff, helping at school and yeah got in LOTS of scraptime! I have more to share but plan to scrap this week, so I will share it ALL at once!!!!

Oh we are selling girl scout cookies! her goal is 100 we are up to 60 right now, if you need some just email us and let us know! LOL!

Hope all is well! Stay warm!!! and THANKS for stopping by!!
