Starting Again!!

Yes I am back into the blogging world and I am so excited!! I feel like I am re-learning how to do everything!

I am a Mom of three amazing children and this is the story of our lives. Now that I am back, I am setting small goals for myself and plan to blog once a month about the adventures of our family! Two years ago when my blog froze due to an overload of pictures, I was overwhelmed when I got too far behind! I really did miss blogging so now I am back! I may post things from the past two years just for me to be able to look back on all our memories!! I am not sure if anyone will read this except my own family but if you do stop by - enjoy and feel free to comment!!

Here we go........

January 2012

Happy New Year 2012!

This year our family rung in the New Year by blowing horns, hooting and hollering and toasting with apple juice in wine glasses!! It was the first year we let all three kids stay up until midnight and they all made it! Every New Year's Eve we order in pizza, play games, watch a movie and then cheer for the new year!! This year we played a new game called 'Headbandz' which ended up being really fun! We also managed to have time for Monopoly which is the kids favorite family game!!

Here is a little peek down memory lane.....2011 & 2010
Roller blades was the big present for Christmas this year and boy have they been anxious to try them out!! Luckily we have had a few days with no rain and no snow in January so the kids got to roll, roll, roll!!!

Even Dad got in on the fun!! I prefer taking the pictures!!:0)

Here they come!
I Love how Jesse is watching his Dad in this picture, and they are both having a blast!


The snow has arrived!! Saturday January 14th we woke up to peaceful whiteness!! I love the snow as long as I do not have to drive in it!! If I can play in it with the kids then come inside and snuggle under a warm blanket by the fire with hot chocolate - that is a good day!!

A little child labour doesn't hurt right? Especially when they WANT to shovel, I say put them to work!!:0)
???? Jesse's path was a little crooked!!!
Of course after work... It.Is.PLAYTIME!!!

This was Emma's favorite sled!!
Abby will always be known as our 'snow eater'!!
Jesse was so brave, he was even trying the jumps!!
Snow-filled, exhausted and ready for some hot chocolate!!
Our backyard!
On the left side of the picture is where our boat sandbox is, but can you see it under all that white?!!
