Winter is certainly not our favorite time of year, but as a family, we try to make the best of it!
The pictures below are from last year and
the many feet of snow we received in the northeast!

Notice how Adam's hat is over his eyes - hehe

A Really Bad Blogger!

I've been a really bad blogger...but I hope to be better! Things have been crazy, hectic, andthis left for little blogging time, but I've been reading. Sometimes little blog breaks are needed - but I hope to be back at it. The holidays are the perfect time to blog, capture memories and share them with all my bloggy friends! Happy Holidays!

True Story Tuesday

Each Sunday after church Nick attends 1st grade Sunday School. It lasts about an hour. I usually sit in the empty room beside his classroom and read a book. I can usually hear most of what the class is learning.
I had to chuckle last week when the class was asked "where do you go when you die?" They were hinting at 'heaven' as the right answer. Nick was called on to answer the question. His response...the graveyard! Ohh so true his teacher said, but where does you spirit go...he then replied 'heaven'. It was a cute & innocent morning laugh.
Enjoy your day everyone!!

Monday Mugs - Best Friends!

This week's theme is best friends.
I couldn't do this post with including my husband Ray. We've been best friends for almost 15 years, married for 9, and through ups, downs, and laughs, he always sticks by me!

Of course I HAVE to mention my best girl Liz. Since 3rd grade we've been besties. We shared many memories, laughs, secrets, tears, and great times! Love you girl!

As my boys age, i am anxious to notice the relatioships they will develop. Below is Adam at a recent camping trip with his friend Christopher.

And Nick at his 6th birthday party surrounded by all his buddies.

Aquaintances will come and go, but true friends will last a lifetime!

Visit Heather and her awesome blog at for more Monday Mugs. Have a great week everyone!!
