Happy Saturday

Greetings and Happy Saturday!

I have not posted in a few weeks because I have been too busy at work - a lot of reorganization in the company.

This was the temperature on our deck yesterday morning. I kid you not, it was -17 degrees Fahrenheit - brrrrrrr. They are forecasting a high of around 20 today - woo hoo - I'm going to get out the sunblock.

Last weekend after we had another 12" of snow, we went to the local sledding hill. Below the 12" of snow was about 3" of ice - it made for a few treacherous trips up the hill, just about killed me. It was a good workout though, I wonder how many activity points I earned doing that?! Oh, I have joined Weight Watchers again. My company is sponsoring WW @Work and we have a great group of co-workers. I have lost about 5.5 lbs. so far, lots more to lose but it's a start.

Here are some photos of Michael on the sledding hill last Saturday.

And here are some photos of Michael after we got home from sledding, hee, hee..(I have a whole collection of photos and videos of Michael sleeping, can't wait to show them to his future loves).

Hey, wait a minute! Holly didn't go sledding...what a lazy hound! :)

Have a great day!

Happy New Year Fun!

Kelli is hosting a Blog Review for 2008. What you do is post the first sentence of your first blog post of each month. You can also add a favorite picture from each month.

Here are mine:


I've got sunshine, on a cloudy day...


God bless weathermen, er, I mean meteorologist (excuse me).


Birdie came into our lives in December, 2001 after we tried for over a year and a half(unsuccessfully) to have a baby.


This is my first "Tuesdays with Michael" post and I hope to keep this up each week as kind of a diary of my "special" day with our wonderful, yet challenging, young son.


Good morning everyone and Happy Friday - Woohoo!


Have you ever thought that you lost something for good, something that was very sentimental to you?


God Bless America


I'm a day late and a dollar short on my post this week. I was having computer problems yesterday but all is fine now.


A few weeks ago, a friend and I decided to go visit some old friends - of the Equine variety.


Go Green! Go White!


Good morning! As we start our day here in Illinois with the first snow of the season, I wanted to share with you some photos from our honeymoon to the beautiful island of Maui.


O Tannenbaum, O Tannenbaum, how lovely are your branches~

Happy 2009 everyone!
