This Turkey Week

This week it snowed. I like snow but when I am 35 miles
away from home and there is so much snow on the freeway
that all the cars are going 20mph, I am not a fan of it.
It is beautiful to look at though.
Our house was full with human bodies this week.
My sisters came with their families and it was fun.
E made a snow angel and kicked the scary
snowman down.
Brian & Jesse built another snowman
Jesse where is your coat?
some people's children . . .
Baby Jasper arrived
(which is why I was driving in the snow to begin with)
And for the first time in over 20 years we had
Thanksgiving with my dad.
(who is not focusing on the moment at hand)
Sister & Niece & Mills
The husbands with Dad. ANd we are adding a
THIRD hubby to the mix next year!!!
By the end of the week this little 12 lb 10 oz heavy weight
and her sister got everyone sick. Thanks to teething and
cold weather everyone went home with stuffy noses, ear infections
and coughs.

It sure does rain a ton here. And we still haven't
bought a winter coat for E. The girls and I keep
busy (sane) with exercise group, play group, story time
and all the other little things, that will keep our minds off the weather.
I don't mind the cold as much as the rain.
We just all need to get rain boots and possibly umbrellas.
(I can't decide on umbrellas because many people don't use them here)
Unfortunately I have to learn to
exercise in the house since it's pouring and Jesse
is gone with work & school all the time.
Christmas break could not come fast enough.
One thing that I do love about cold weather is all the clothes!
We are slowly collecting clothes which is so much fun.
There are a lot of indoor activities going on over here.
And we have books coming out of our ears. I will really
cherish the day E can read on her own.
If you have any suggestions for cool things to do indoors,
send them my way.
Oh and we finally got a couch, leather chair & ottoman, tv and dvd player.

I have been really lame at blogging.
We have been keeping busy so the rain
doesn't get us down.
We have still had many visitors and
I have started the Hunger Games series!
We went to the pumpkin patch and
realized why people go earlier in the season
so there will be pumpkins left.

Then we went to a party and E was
Tiana from Princess and the Frog.
She had fun.

Now that no one came to trick or treat at
our home we have 400 pieces of candy that I
have to get rid of...
