Fun With the Kids & A Thought for Parents

A few weeks ago we had snow and then an ice storm that covered the snow. The kids wanted to go out and build a snowman but it was too icy to go out side so...this is what we did and we had a blast. White laundry baskets and a little creativity gave us a really fun project!

Just playing around.

We made Steelers banners to display as we watched the superbowl.

A Thought For The Day For Anyone Who Has Children...

Yesterday at about 6:00 am we received a phone call from the principal at the high school Ray teaches at. Two of his students were killed in a house fire earlier that morning - the parents survived. I immediately got goosebumps and, since my children get up before the rooster does, they were awake and I ran to give them hugs and kisses as they played.. How awful it would be to loose a child, especially two - it's completely unimaginable to me! Last night Ray took the kids out for a special fun night full pf play and good times, just because sometimes you just need to show your kids how much they mean to you. Hug your kids and appreciate every second of every day!
