Happy New Year!

I usually spend New Year's Eve out with friends and the hubby of course and we come home in time to see the ball drop in Times Square with the children.  This New Year's Eve, however, I am taking it easy and staying home.  We'll play some games with...

Just the girls!

I do love the Holidays, but last week was such a whirlwind of activity...the regular Christmas husseling and busseling......then there is all of the family members coming and going - Not to mention having to travel back and forth to the homes of...

The Blackbirds

*I sat out on the front porch this morning just watching the blackbirds struggling to feed and this poem came to mind.  Silly to some I guess, but I found it quite revealing of their nature versus ours.   The blackbirds hasten their landing ...

Priceless

Snow Boots       $115 Snow Coat         $175 Snow Tube         $250 Watching my step-son tube down a hill, hit a bump and go flying head-over-heels into a 3 ft snow drift.............Priceless!

NC Snow Storm 12-26-10

I woke up to a beautiful winter wonderland this morning.  Then we went for a walk in the snow (which is getting pretty thick now).  Here are a couple of the pictures that I took.     We are going sledding and snow tubing later since...

The Lost

Do you know who I am Can you feel my pain? Emptiness that surrounds Tears that fall like rain   Do you know where I live On streets so cold and dark? When you pass me there all alone Is there saddness in your heart?   Do...

Such a Trying Week

This has been such a trying week.  I had a lot of work to get done at the beginning of this week, but got it done early so that I had the rest of the week free.  This was our last week of homeschool before 16 days off for Christmas vacation.  And then...

One crazy day down.....

Well, I just got home and must say that I am so terribly glad to be here.  I got up this morning and got myself and the children ready and headed to the church to do a run-through of the Christmas play.  Then went to church at 11:00 a.m.  Came home...

Fictional Thoughts Scenario

Get Over It

I had a conversation the other night on Facebook that seriously took me back to high school and made me think about how apparently some people never get over the high school years.  For me, that time in my life was great and ejoyable and...
