doesn't take much...

to bring smiles to my face... simple things like listening to Maddy play with her dolls or hearing Grant's cutest, contagious belly laughs or watching Jackson do something he loves like snowboarding (where we're headed tonight~ Spring Mount).
Today this is what makes me smile... these so stinkin' cute "Birds in Boots" I just bought these from Patty's Etsy shop ... check her out HERE I think she's showing some signs of Spring Fever and I bet she will have some super cute Spring goodies popping up there real soon, not to mention the great items already listed in her shop! I LOVE these birds! Can't wait to get them ! Thanks Patty !

New Banner

Beautiful red roses from Billy ~ Thank You ~ I love ya bunches !
As promised, I did get the Valenine banner down with reasonable timing. I now have a new banner and a title ~ less blog. Our computer crashed and while I am excited to have a new one, it comes with the price of waiting to get all my stuff from the old drive reinstalled onto this new one... things like photoshop ( so I can title my banner) and all my photos and other fun downloads I have collected oh, not to mention all the links I had book marked ! oh well...

I mentioned we were snowed in last week... starting last Wed my kids had a "snowcation" that lasted 6 days ( including the weekend and the holiday on Monday)
so, we took a couple of day trips. On Valentine's day we took the kids to the "Sweetest Place on Earth" Hershey's Chocolate world. And another day we went to the historic home of the 1st commercial pretzel baker.. Julius Sturgis. I can share the pictures I took.

And here is a glimpse of the snow... here.

I think there will be snow on the ground here till May ! This has been a crazy Winter ! I'm so ready for Spring... for Sun and for the birds and flowers !

Have a great week !

I finally got the Christmas coutur down and replaced it with this nice seasonal Valentine banner...compliments of the House of 3 ! Enjoy, for what... 4 days or so and hopefully I can get it replaced sooner that the last one.

We're snowed in today. The kids have a snow day and we are getting pounded. I had this Valentine project to post , should have put here earlier... found the idea HERE

needle & thread

oh the things you can create & repair with simply a needle and thread. Maddy & I found this oh so soft hat at Target. It kinda kept slipping over her eyes, so I found in my button jar, these really cute jumbo buttons I had bought for a project that never happened, and decided to put them to good use... and voila ! She can see again !
