snow day, photo bomb

  Photo bomb!  Sorry for the way this looks, I'm not patient enough to figure out how the pictures should be placed.  :(  And sorry so long but we have some great pics of the last few weeks of our snow days!!!!  Hope you all enjoyed your snow/time off/rest was a great time for us!  

These are from our snow a couple weeks ago.  He didn't like it.  However, we think due to a tooth breaking through, him just waking up from a nap and the lack of gloves, he just wasn't feeling it.  So, we didn't last long.  But it was a great few days with Kraig off work to be able to spend some extra time with us and a time for rest.

While he was teething, he insisted on being naked.  He tried to go around without a diaper too, but I wasn't going for that one.  I love this picture of him.  


Lance, Kraig and Rett built a snowman!  This time, we were prepared with gloves and more sleep.  HE LOVED THE SNOW!  Our dogs loved the snow too but they loved relaxing even more.  Then, JoJo (my sister's dog) came over and Rett and her had to watch the snow fall.  He loves JoJo.  He says, "JOJO!!!"  Then, he calls our dogs, "dog" hahahaha I guess we need to work on the names of our dogs.  :)

This is one of my favorites from these past few snow days.  If you could zoom into Rett's face.  It is pure joy.  I love him.  :)

My dad threw snow at him.  He thought it was hilarious.
He loved the snow so much better this time.  When he would walk he would just fall into it because it was so deep.  He loved to make "balls" (snowballs).  He would take a bite out of the ball and then throw it.  Then, when he got hit or hit someone else with his ball, he would just giggle.  He was so much fun to watch this time.  

 Mom took most of these pictures.  This one is great of him throwing a ball!!!!




I think another favorite was to roll in the snow.

OR SIT........



 Getting a taste before he throws it.....

For Valentine's, the Incline was giving free rides up the mountain and since Kraig was going to have a 1/2 day, we were going to have a fun, family day.  Well, the WONDERFUL snow messed that up.  Although we had a blast the last few days, we had to let Kraig go back to work today so Rett and I went to the Incline.  Well, I don't do heights well so I was a bit nervous.  I called my parents.  My mom didn't have to go back to school today so they were so gracious to help me with Rett in case I got too nervous going up the mountain.  Well, Rett did great, I did ok and we made it up the mountain and back down and had a great lunch with my parents.  All in all, a great Valentine's with my little Valentine (and parents) We just missed Kraig.  
Hope you all have had a great few snow days and a wonderful Valentine's with your honey!  Love you all and am so thankful for you all!  

Happy Valentine's Day!

what is my WHY?!

So, as many of you all might know....I started an awesome new nutritional product a couple of months ago.

At first, it was to lose weight, which to be honest, I still haven't reached my goal but I am closer than I was.

But it has evolved.  Now, I want to continue to lose weight but we have some more things on the horizon and I want to be able to pay for those things without going further in debt or having to use money that we already have designated for other places.  So, I want to do this business and make some money.

Here are some of those reasons WHY I want to continue on with this program...

          1.  To get out of debt.  Isn't  that always the thing!  We went through the Dave Ramsey plan before Kraig and I got married and have done OK with sticking with the plan but we have had some unforeseen things come up and we were forced to get into some debt to pay for some home repairs.  Because I stay home, and would love to continue to stay at home with Rett, I want to hel…

what a break

Well, I don't know about you but we need a vacation.  Kraig has one more week off before he returns to normal schedule.  We had Gigi and Papa come for a visit!  We had our youth Christmas party! We have a sickly baby boy (just sinus stuff) and we are pooped for all the craziness of the last two weeks.  Although, we wouldn't trade it for anything...well...the sickness but everything else was great!

Last year, for our youth Christmas party, we just had a dinner and played games at the church.  This year, we wanted to do something special and off of the church campus.  So, we got the idea to go skiing.  Well, it was supposed to rain and it never got cold enough so we had to change our plans.  We racked our brains and came up with a Christmas Scavenger Hunt at the mall.  We split the groups up into 3 teams and let them loose (with a chaperone, of course) in the mall.  They had to talk to strangers, find trash, get an autograph, sing a Christmas carol, and do some other crazy thing…

some praises....

I've started this blog for days now and keep running around in circles of how or what I want to say.
Bottom line...
God is GOOD.  That's what I keep going back too.  Let's praise Him for a minute....
We have had a great news from our cousins that are battling horrible diseases!  There is still much fight to be had but God is good.
We got great news from a friend this morning....their adoption is a GO!  God is good!
We have seen God work in our kids lives and our church family in huge ways the past few weeks!  God is good!
It's so easy to be in a slump especially with this gloomy weather that we have had.  But God still works.  He works in the small things and even the big things!!!  
After the beauty of last week's snow, I found myself loving the parts that were untouched.  I loved looking at everyone's pictures and the beauty of it.  But would get messed up.  People would walk on it, drive through it, and play in it.  
Sometimes...we get messed up.  …
