I started a TRADITION!!!

I am so excited. I finally feel like the fun mom! This is what we woke up to yesterday morning.
A foot of beautiful, fluffy snow.
My poor home schooled children have been missing out, but not any more! Their FUN mom has seen to that. They have never gotten a "snow" day off from school. Our new tradition is...a PARTY day on the day of our first huge snow fall for the season. What does party day mean? NO SCHOOL, mom goes out with the kiddos and plays in the snow, we make a cake and watch movies! We had such a wonderful time off yesterday. Here are some other pictures of our play time outside.
P.S.-The schools in our town were closed yesterday too and the ONLY reason I enjoyed this SNOW was because I did not have to drive anywhere!

Our phrase for the week!

Big boys don't use...PASSIES!
Joel has really taken to this idea. We took his passie away Tuesday night before bed and he has done FANTASTIC without it. No tears and he is even taking naps. The reason I prolonged this whole process was because, when we took the passie away from the other four they stopped napping the very next day! Thank you Joel for being SO different from your siblings!

Potty training will be next and then our little boy really will be a

I have NOT forgotten to blog

I have a lot going on and I am trying to spend my time wisely.  Blogging just doesn't seem to fit in right now.  I will try soon to post about all that God is teaching me.

I got mail!!

Today I received a package from Jennifer.  She sent me these awesome items to thank me for the little help that I gave her with her blog!  I never expected anything in return, just making her happy was thanks enough for me.  BUT....since Jennifer wanted to bless me anyway, I will GLADLY take her gifts of thanks.  Thank you very much for thinking about me Jennifer!!  You are SO sweet!!!  ANYTIME you need my help, I am here for you!!
There are many things that I love in this world.  Two of which are
1. Being needed/Helping others
2. Getting presents in the mail!!

This is crazy

I was going to post about how I am spending less time on the computer. How I will not be posting much, BUT THEN I FOUND.....THIS! Go check it out before you read any further!!!

I am not sure which blog I like better. This one is SO MUCH prettier, but the Shutterfly one has some AWESOME options. You can change pictures and stuff SO easily!!! I will have to try it out over the next couple of days....maybe I won't like it at all!! One of the best parts is that family or anyone else for that matter can order pictures right off the site. Oh well, if you can't find me here....look for me over there!

My baby

Joel missed his nap today.  He made my night by falling asleep in my arms.   I absolutely LOVED holding him while he slept!!  Thank you Jesus for my little boy!!

Our new president

I stole this from a friend off of Facebook, because it is my sentiments exactly!!

I am now an Obama supporter who will pray for strength and wisdom for our new president. Differences aside, I call on all Americans to do the same.

Freebies for voting

Just wear your "I VOTED" sticker to Starbucks for a free coffee, to Krispy Kreme for a free, REALLY cute, star shaped doughnut, to Chick-Fil-A for a free sandwich and then to top it off to Ben and Jerry's for a free ice cream cone!! (I sure wish that we lived closer to Krispy Kreme and to Chick-Fil-A.) Oh well, hopefully you all will be able to benefit from these freebies!!! (Check websites for each of these stores. I don't know if all locations are doing these freebies.)
