i've not blogged in foreva!
i think to myself every day that i need to write something.
but i never get around to it.
i've missed Christmas. Nathyn's birthday. Jacob's birthday.
even my last 7 days off.

it seems like there is always something going on, but we are never doing anything?
i clean. go to work. on my days off, it's time to clean again.
as always i have several things i want to do.
but never get them done.

i want to repaint the living room and kitchen.
but can't decide on a color.
i'm leaning towards grey.
i've got a big project in the works.
but it's a secret!
i've got to get started planning the "Best Summer Ever 2011".
i've got to start planning our beach vacation.
we've got some land clearing that needs to be done.
i want to plant a vegetable garden this year.
and that's not counting all the little projects i want to do also.
today though,
i need to clean.

snow again?

this was our first snow for the winter.
it actually snowed on Christmas night.
our area had not had a White Christmas since 1963.

this is what it looks like today.
they are calling for snow this weekend.
like 6-8 inches.
i don't remember a snow like that since the late eighties.
gosh. i sound old.

i'm on my 7 days off.
the plan is to do lots of crafting.
lots of blogging.
take lots of photos.
read a lot.

wish me luck.

ice day...

school was canceled because there was possible ice on the roads.
they had two days left before Christmas break.
we started the day out with blueberry muffins {caidon's favorite} and despicable me.
really cute movie.

i tried taking a photo of the tree, hoping it would turn out really cool.
i even tried to make a bokeh. as you can see that didn't work.
i'm gonna keep trying.
i usually try to decorate my tree *martha stewart* style.
but this year i let the boys do it all.
i'd like to have a tree that is all hand made decorations.
meg had her kids make these.
i want to make some too!

i was thinking Christmas traditions, and what ours was.
we don't really have one, other than the ornament with our names we buy every year.
caidon dropped last years, i've got to glue it back together.
but i'm thinking i'd like another family tradition.

and caidon worked on his *car* {dishwasher}

i made it...

i made it.
you could to.
all it took was some yarn and a pom-pom maker.
or you could make your own. here is an example of a homemade pom-pom maker.
i used a wire wreath. and then tied each one on.

i also cooked a feast last nite. fried chicken. mashed potatoes. fried okra. shells n cheese. it was delish.

caidon decided he was going to be handy manny. note the pencil behind his ear.

santa came early.
