Winter Storm 2008

After being stuck in the house for 2 days, we resorted to a cookie contest yesterday! It was Dan, Mahlon and Sam versus me, Marissa and Connor. We finally were able to get Kiffany, her daughter-in-law Beth and grandson, Anthony over to judge for us. Brad wasn't feeling well so we sent some home for him to judge, too. The kids all had a fun time with it and we all got a yummy treat!

Mine, Marissa and Connors-They came out a little flat and a little over-cooked because Dan was trying to sabotage us by changing my oven temperature!

Dan, Mahlon and Sammy's-Look really yummy...big and fluffy!
So...who do you think won?

The judges chose the flatter, not-so-good-looking cookies!! My team!! Yeah for us!!

I love this picture of Anthony and Sammy...he thinks that the bigger boys hung the moon and you can tell in this photo!

Stay Tuned!

Blogger seems to be having technical difficulties now! Figures, huh? It's taken me how long now to find the time to post and I get an error message on the photo uploader! What a bummer! Oh well, I promise to post more pics from Christmas day a little returning/exchanging to do...these boys grow way too fast. I can't keep up from week to week! Hope everyone had a great Christmas and I can't wait to see more pictures of everyone's holiday!

"Our" Christmas Eve-December 23rd

The boys were with their Dad this year for Christmas Eve so we did our traditions the night before.

When my mom was pregnant with me, my Dad's parents, Mommie Jay and Goggie, gave them a beautiful copy of "Twas the Night Before Christmas" to read as a family each Christmas Eve. It has been passed on to my family and the boys and I read it each year. My mom sent Shannon a copy this year to continue the tradition with Emmett.

Sam's First Pheasant Hunt

For Sam's birthday last month, he asked Dan to take him to Hastings Island to pheasant hunt. Since the boys are off of school all week, this morning was the perfect day for it! He loved it and they got two birds!! He's already asking when he can go again...

He loved playing with these guys after he got home and especially loved the blood on his clothes! GROSS! Most of you know that I'm a total germ-a-phobe so I made sure he took a very long, very warm, very soapy bath!

Congrats to Mahlon and Honor Roll(ees)

So now that Mahlon is in fourth grade, he finally gets A, B, C's, etc. on his report card and is eligible for the Honor Roll. Congrats to Mahlon for making it his first trimetster! Also, a congrats to Connor (sorry but I've got no photo...long story!) for making Honor Roll his first trimester of Junior High! And not to leave little Sammy out...he did very well also but they don't do Honor Roll for third grade...great trimester boys!! I'm proud of you all!

Dinner and Friends

Yesterday was a rainy, yucky day so we thought it would be fun to have friends over for some yummy dinner and a little yummy wine! We had the Giardinos, the M's from across the street and the Riedels. Little did we know that the boys would treat us to a little wrestling match, as well. Connor and Wolfie were coaching Sammy and Mahlon and Jake was refereeing! It was quite entertaining and they were all pooped and slept quite well!

And in this corner...Sammy and his coach, Con-Dog!

And in this corner...Mahlon and his coach, Wolfie!

Silly Sammy!!

And their ref, Jake! He looks like he was getting quite the workout, huh?

Buddy Love getting a lot of love from a bunch of boys and girls!!

What nice little girls...our friends Lexi and M sitting so nicely watching those crazy boys wrestle under the crazy trophy head!!

Thank you everyone for coming...we had a BLAST! It's always fun to have a nice relaxing evening with good friends! We'll have to do it more often!

Happy 13th!

Well...the cake says it all...Happy 13th Birthday, Marissa!

Make a wish!!

Gotta love my Sammy...he always seems to find something fun to do with the cloth napkins at restaurant's to keep him entertained!

So tomorrow is Marissa's 13th b'day and she wanted a mani/pedi afternoon...with her DAD!! Somehow she convinced him that he had to have a pedicure and manicure, also, so she and I devised our plan to capture it on film and blog it to embarass him! I think that the ducks, etc. out in the fields where he hunts will really admire his polished toes!!

Maroon 5- Arco Arena

I took the boys to see Maroon 5 at Arco Arena last night. What a great show!! They sounded wonderful and had an amazing light show! Adam Levine is very easy on the eyes, too, which kept it interesting!

Adam Levine...AKA "Hottie!"

Sam waiting for them to take the stage

Sam and Mahlon

In front of the tour bus...kind of reminiscent of my sister and I in front of the Willie Nelson bus.

Poor proved to be a late night for him and he was sound asleep in that loud arena about 10 PM. He did wake up and catch the last song, though. I haven't a clue how he slept through all of the noise!
