Music To My Ears....

My favorite singer Norah Jones has a new album out! She is incredibly talented. I normally purchase a cd and listen to the songs on it that I like and ignore everything else. I listen to Norah's cd's from start to finish over and over.
Her voice and music are magic with grace.

Saturday....


Today we are going to lay low with Eli. He seems better this morning. He's kept down his pedialyte and cheerios so far.


I take two sets of pictures of the children each year. One set is of them all together which goes out in the Christmas Cards. One set is of them individually which goes out in the Valentine Cards. (I send a lot of cards) Well, I have to get the Valentine Cards out today or they will be late for sure!


I also have five quilt squares to go out for 100 Wishes Quilts. I still have a ways to go, so if you would like to swap, just let me know!


Enjoy your day everyone!!

Got Pedialyte??




Eli has some form of the stomach flu. Looks like we will be resting this weekend and trying to recover. I feel so sorry for him. He gets so scared and miserable when it comes over him.





I'm sure that we'll be spending a lot of time cuddling on the couch watching Nemo.

Poppa Pops!!


At our house, we now call popcorn poppa pops. Zach started it with Eli and it's stuck. I can't tell you how many bags of popcorn we go through. It is amazing. Everyone loves it!

Here is Eli with Daddy eating poppa pops and watching our new favorite movie--NEMO.
How many times can you watch Nemo and not go insane??---I'll let you know.

Sent With Hugs..More Fun In The Mail!

This quilt square was sent by our fellow blogger Leda. I know that she is still working to get all 100 squares for her daughter Kaylee's quilt before she leaves for China. You can contact her at 'China to California' on my favorites list.


I also am still happy to swap quilt squares with anyone who is working on their quilts. Just leave your information in the comments attached to this post.

A Little Love from Aunt Julie

Today we got some special surprises in the mail from Aunt Julie.



Aunt Julie sent Christmas ornaments for Elijah and Sophia. I got a new Godmother mug since I am Savannah's Godmother. Aunt Julie will be Sophia's Godmother when she arrives. The pack of Dentyne gum is a long story.



Elijah also got this VERY COOL Buzz Lightyear sweatshirt. I can't get it off of him. Here is Eli eating cookies with his new sweatshirt.


This is him showing me that Buzz is on his shirt.

Snow Day.......Remember Those??



Zachary and our neighbor Taylor are definitely enjoying their day off from school. They are playing X-Box.




Eli loves to play under the dining room table. He constantly crawls under there with his toys.



Tyler is relaxing and playing Rune Scape on the computer.

We hope you all are warm, safe and enjoying the snow.
Except of course for my Southern blogfriends who keep telling me how warm they are in their tank tops--thanks ladies!!

The Weather Outside Is Frightful....


It is definitely cold outside, but we're doing great. We never lost power. We are just laying low today. Katelyn is watching the Grease show where they are trying out for the musical (we have it on DVR). Zach is playing X-BOX live. I am blogging and Tim is downloading music onto the kids' IPOD's. Tyler is playing at the neighbors.


I am hearing from other bloggers that it's very cold today in a lot of the country. Stay warm everyone!!
