What is That?

January 14, 2013

Well, we did not send out Christmas cards, figuring that we would wish every one Merry & Blessed Greetings when the new baby arrived.  Well, the new baby did indeed arrive and has been here over a week now.  Yesterday before Mass we took some family pictures and NOT ONE came out!!!  We would have had a few possibilities, but I did not see Veronica’s tongue out in time.  Ugh!!

Also, the weather has been crazy.  It was raining for a few days with highs in the 70s.  We had our pond back and the kids were boating on the pond.  Here it is January and it was warm enough for that.  They were “ponding” yesterday because it was nice and warm and then we went to 4 pm Mass.  When we came out after Mass and it was freezing!!!!  As we left for Mass there was a thunder storm going on with a lot more rain.  Today winter was back with a fury.  It was sleeting a lot today.  MaryEllen commented on how strange it was that yesterday they were in the pond and today they are in snow suits.  Oh, the weather in Tennessee!

We hope you all had a Merry and Blessed Christmas and have a wonderful 2013.  One of these days you may get a greeting from us, but at this rate, who knows!




Remeber Bob Ross?

January 2, 2013

Do you remember Bob Ross, the painter, and his happy little trees? This Christmas brought a Bob Ross DVD. The children had never seen him or really heard of him. We spent New Year’s Eve day watching the DVD. On New Year’s Day we found ourselves at Hobby Lobby and Kevin bought a knife. He came home and worked on a painting. Here it is…

Also, the other day we were leaving to go to Mass.  On the way out I could not help but to stop and take a photo of our Rosey Toes kitty cat…

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas.  And have a blessed New Year 2013!  God bless!
