I finished the picture for my sister in law, the picture I took turned out terrible so I will have to take another one! I am so happy to be done with it!! Now I have started on the one for my mom of the 9 grandkids!
No snow today!! In fact, its rainign a little & melting some of that snow!! Yea!! While we were at the mall, I bought Victoria 6 pairs of Old NAvy flip flops! We are ready!!!!

Two "Cool Dudes!" We had time to run into the mall in between Jacobs games Saturday. Chuck wanted new sunglasses & of course Jacob wanted to be cool too!!

Victoria has been wanting a good picture of her & the dogs...same problem, they wont sit still & look at the camera!!

I was trying to get a good picture of the two kids & the dogs yesterday! Talk about a hard job! Id get the kids to be still then one of the dogs would get up & move! Make sure you notice the lovely shredded tissue in the back ground! More of Mochas work!!

Busy weekend! Lots of ball going on! Jacob is entering into the last of his basketball season, we start the tournament tonight! He had his last two regulaur games Saturday. Victoria had volleyball & softball yesterday! It just never ends!!

Say it isn't so!!!! They are calling for another 9 inches of snow today!!! I am tired of snow!! Don't get me wrong, I love the snow but enough is enough! I want to see my brown grass again! ha My poor little Mocha, she swims in the snow! She doesnt have a prayer when shes running with Echo!

My sister in law called me last week & asked me to make a "name" for her daughters, teachers new baby. Her name is Ellie & she wanted me to do it like her nursery. I pulled up Penelope in Pottery Barn Kids & tried to make it look just like it. I think I did pretty good. Melinda & Grace were happy with it! Now they get to frame it & present it to Graces teacher!

Now I am back to working on my other sister in laws Christmas picture! I can see the light at the end of the tunnel! I am almost done with it! I am excited to get started on my moms picture of all 9 grandkids even though I know its going to be a pain! Its almost time to start on my ornaments that I do every year for my kids & the nieces & nephews. I like to do one a month so I dont have to do them all at once like I did last year!!

The kids are off today so I am sure we wil be going in & out all day today with the snow! I just hope they have school tomorrow!!!

Enjoy your day!!

I have had it!!!! NO more snow!!!! I am usually a winter person but enough is enough!! We have about 16 inches right now & the kids have been out of school all week! Its time to go back to normal! I want to see the grass again, not the dogs poop sticking out like a sore thumb on top of the snow!! Oh well! The kids have enjoyed the snow! Victoria & her cousins decided to color the snow & dig tunnels! They were doing great until Echo ran across them & collapsed them. Mocha isnt on the electric fence yet since she is still to young so they spent most of their time chasing her around the front yard! She looked like she was swimming in the snow since shes so little! She has definetly slept good the last two nights! Jacob did some sledding with friends & some shoveling but he has enjoyed being on his xbox a little more than usual! I have let him spend a little more time on it (then I get to stitch in peace!!)

I keep waiting for the weather report to say "80" so far, not so good!

I hope all of you are staying warm!
