More Snow...More Snow!

My boys just love the snow.

Ben would have stayed out there all day if we let him. He loves to "work".

I wish it was warmer so they could go out more often.

Thanks Auntie Nicole for the snow pants and boots - otherwise they wouldn't be able to go out at all! :)

I've Been Tagged!

Thanks Candi! ;)

A- Available or married? Married - almost 7 years

B- Best Friend? My husband and my sister and my mom. You can't just have one, can you?

C- Cake or Pie? I'll take either.

D- Drink of Choice? Orange/Lemonade Kool-Aid

E- Essential Item? Cell phone & lipgloss

F- Favorite Color? Green

G- Gummi Bears or Worms? I'll eat either, but I don't love either. Make sense? I have a horrible sweet tooth, remember?

H- Hometown? South Holland, IL

I- Indulgence? Valpo Velvet Peanut Butter Cup Ice Cream

O- Oranges or apples? Depends on my mood. I like both though.

P- Phobias/Fears? Okay, this is going to sound completely crazy, but I don't like to see things that aren't supposed to be in the horizon. Like a cruise ship or a blimp. Even mountains weird me out a little since we live in the flatlands so they aren't supposed to be in the horizon in my own mind. :)

Q-Favorite Quote? "You get nothing. Good day sir!" Willy Wonka

R- Reason to Smile? My boys! All 4 of them.

S- Season? Spring

T- Tag three people! Aimee, Kristin and Michelle H.

U- Unknown fact about me: I think my fear/phobia is pretty unknown.

What happened to V?

W- Worst habit? Not keeping up with the laundry.

Y- Your favorite food? I LOVE food. Lovvvve it! I can't pick a favorite.

Z- Zodiac? Yeah, I'm with Candi on this one. I think I'm a Cancer, but I don't really care about it.

Can We Fix It?

Jon was fixing a few of the trim pieces around the house. When Jon mentioned that he was going to get his hammer and some nails, Simon and Ben immediately went downstairs to look for their hammers.
Simon wasn't having much luck with this plastic one so Jon let him try the real one. He actually did pretty good.

Ben getting in on the action. They were both so cute.

Bob the Builder & Handy Manny.

This post is for those of you still checking our blog! I'm sorry for not posting since October. It's a little crazy and quite frankly...sitting on the couch in the evening eating a bowl of ice cream beats sitting at the computer posting pictures - any day!!! :)

Nonetheless, here are some random photos. I just can't go back and post about Christmas. I just can't do it. I'm sorry! We did have a great Christmas though.

Enjoy! I'll try to do better. How about if I try to post once a week or something. I'm sure I'd have some happy grandparents and aunties out there!

Me & Ben on the go-cart at my dad's in Pennsylvania over New Year's. He didn't want to go on it. Cried the whole time I walked him out to it. Screamed when I put the helmet on. I strapped him in and took off. In about 1 second he was cracking up. Then we couldn't get him off of the thing.

Uncle Paul and Talon...cuties!

Grandma Penny and Talon.

My boys in the huge tub at Grandma & Grandpa Stevens' house. Man, do they love that thing. Mike puts the jets on with the bubble bath so it's almost overflowing with bubbles. He didn't do that until after Talon got out, of course. Although I'm sure Talon would have loved it.
