Our Frosty Day

It snowed again! And this time it was thick enough to build and play in!

We built our little snowman; complete with pine cone nose, rock eyeballs, and Spongebob gloves! Surprisingly, the only one struggling with keeping his eyes focused on the camera was Eric! Even Mikey was posing like a pro!

The boys looked so cute in the bright snow, bathed in sunlight, I couldn't resist snapping individual pictures of each one of them.


Christmas is upon us

This year has been abnormally wet, so far, in our little neck of the woods. This morning, we woke up to more snow, and it is still snowing...

So, here I sit, conflicted. Jeremy hates the snow. And he has good reason - he is out and about, right now as I type this, driving in the snow, delivering and installing super nice appliances all over the Treasure Valley. But I, on the other hand, have been sitting back, enjoying the peaceful quiet flakes fall softly to the ground. And this makes me think back to my childhood days of romping around in the snow banks that the snowplows would pile high on our road. We would build snow caves, go sledding at the nearby Menan Butte, and then we would warm up our painfully cold hands with warm coffee cups full of hot cocoa topped off with gigantic marshmallows. Yum.

It is this time of year, when everything slows down and you realize that the only things that are truly important in your life is the love that you share within your home, with your family and friends. I am truly blessed to have such a wonderful husband to hug whenever I want, and four perfectly crazy little boys that fill our house with laughter and love.

My Christmas wish for all of you is for you to enjoy the season with the ones you love, wherever that may be. Have a very Merry Christmas and lots of eggnog or hot chocolate!


Seinfeld-esque Moment

Once upon a time, a young girl would hum along to the theme tune for Sara Lee bakery products, ever so innocently singing the words, "Nobody does it like Sara Lee!"

One day, this sweet young girl grew up and learned to read. After many, many more years of enjoying the occasional Sara Lee jingle in this same way, a large Sara Lee truck passed her on the road.

And she realized that the slogan actually is "Nobody doesn't like Sara Lee." As I seethe... err, I mean... as she seethes about this grammatical error... she realizes one thing.

She is the nobody that doesn't like Sara Lee.


Busy Boise

Although it may seem like I have completely forgotten all about my blog, that's not the case at all.

I feel like this road, busy in both directions. Jeremy got a job! Hooray! And I am currently being the stay at home mommy. It feels so good, things are back where they belong. But busy, busy, busy!


Hey, dude, cool ride!

For some reason, this picture can be summed up in one word - Freedom!


Officially past 200 posts!

Hooray! Yippie! Or as some people say - Woot! Woot!

That's a big number folks! But instead of going on, and on, and on about it...

I thought I would post an awesome picture that Jeremy took about a year ago while we were still living in Nampa. It's a gem!

Look at all those Keds!
