Weekend Update...

What a good weekend we had, lots of family time! My husband and I finally got to celebrate his birthday which was on the 9th and Valentines Day, with everyone being sick everything got postponed but better late than never! we went out and had a nice dinner (alone) haha!
So glad we went to church yesterday, the service was very meaningful, God was definently moving in that building! We all just hung out yesterday afternoon, the kids and I made some yummy choc. chip cookies and we all enjoyed them, my son made 2 extra large ones for he and his daddy, he was very impressed with himself!! I better get on with my day!

I am feeling a cozy day today, it's going to be in the low 40's and rainy! sounds great to me, we had a warm day yesterday, it was so nice, took a walk, kiddos played outside, but it's February we should be cold, but hey this is Texas! my beagle is curled up on our bed sleeping like a log, he is sooo lazy on cool days, he actually looks very comfy! hehe! Well, that's about it for today, not real exciting huh? I need to go refresh my cup of coffee and get on with my day, talk to you tomorrow!

I am so glad...

to be feeling good again, I never knew how happy I could be to feel like a normal person again! I know that sounds weird but after being sick for almost 2 weeks I feel like celebrating feeling good again!! My daughter got moved up to the advanced class in gymnastics, so yeah Hannah!! I baked some of my yummy banana bread yesterday and my gang has been gobbling it up, I make a mean banana bread! hehe! Before sickness invaded our home I was gearing up to do some some sort of scrapbooking, I want to make some small albums for last years Halloween and Christmas pics and now I am feeling in the creative mood again wish me luck!

have a great day!

Happy Valentines Day!

Wow, it has been awhile, my family has been passing lots of sickness around and we're finally on the healing side of it, my hubby didn't get it and hopefully he won't! So my creative juices have not been flowing... I am trying to get back in the game slowly but surely! So love is in the air today, I am still trying to decide what to cook for dinner but I do know that we will eat by candlelight, (kids love that) and have a chocolate dessert. So, in the meantime I have alot to do today and I will tell you more tomorrow!!

Happy February!

I can't believe it's already February, we just celebrated New Years! As I write this my heater is out, it went out overnight and the repairman won't be here until between 1-5, so I'll just keep an extra layer on, it should warm up to 50 today so we should be okay! It's a good thing I don't live in a high "snow" area or I would be in a heap of trouble! speaking of snow, it's all over all my house!! you see, my daughter has learned to make paper snowflakes and she can't get enough of it, seriously she gets home from school, finds the scissors and ask for scrap paper and goes to work! it sounds cute and all and it is, but she's not real hip on cleaning up her messes! so yesterday she decided to make them in our room and there was paper all over floor, I stood there looking at the mess and instead of blowing up at her I said to her in a very calm voice "you know Hannah, mommy really likes your snowflakes and I am so glad you make them so beautiful but you can't keep doing this and not cleaning up so the next time you want to do this we'll put some newspaper on the table and you can cut away". That seemed to satisfy her, and then she cleaned up her mess, everyone was happy.

As I think back on yesterdays events besides the snowflakes, my son who will be 10 next month is not as affectionate with me as he used to be, (wawa) I know this is normal, but it's kinda sad. Anywho, I like to talk babytalk to him just kidding of course and he gets irritated and tells me to "stop mama", so last night he came to show me what he had made with legos and I said "that's so good my precious" and he told me stop, I apologized and said I wouldn't talk like that anymore, and then he backed up and plopped down in my lap and just sat there a minute, I scratched his back and listened to him describe what he had made, I was happy.
