tired of snow

Today I finally was able to shovel away some of the snow on our sidewalk. I haven't seen the full sidewalk in about a month because every time we try to get it shoveled or plowed we would be hit with another snow storm or ice storm. I think the weather has calmed down for a few days. It is actually suppose to get into the 30's here today. Wow!!! What a heat wave!!!
With all this coldness we have been fighting with a virus. My hubby has had it for the past 5 days. He finally was able to go to work this morning after a couple of days of anitibiotics.We have had a rough time with not having work the last couple of weeks. Way to start out the new year huh? With the funeral and then hubby being sick we are just praying we don't get too far behind on bills and all. Also praying no one else gets it. We are pushing the vitamin C right now.
I am ready for some spring time weather. Spring is my favorite time of the year and can't wait for it to get here!!!!

warmer weather

Yeah!!! Today it is above 0 degrees!!!!!!! It is actually 19 right now and feels a lot warmer. My washer wouldn't work yesterday b/c of the cold temperatures,and we didn't have water from our refridgerator either. Hopefully today we can get back to normal. We have a lot of catching up to do being gone for a week and then with the crazy schedule we had the last few days. Hopefully, next week we can all get back on our schedules.
Today we are going to be down to one child. The girls all have places to go and things to do. It is sort of nice,but then I also wish they were here. I enjoy the busy house.
Hope you all have a warmer weekend ahead.

Pictures of the family

These were taken while we were in Missouri last week. It is at my in laws house. They have a really nice place with 5 or so acres. It was also 58 degrees that day. Wish it was that right now. :)

It is sooooooooooooo cold here right now. The kids have not had school for a couple of days because of the snow and the cold. Right now it is -19 degrees and not suppose to be much warmer until the weekend. The wind chill is -35. We have not gone anywhere unless we have too. Went to the grocery store today and that was it!! All you people who live in the warmer states please send up some warmness.:) It is suppose to be up to 25 this weekend. Wow... a heat wave. Haha.

We had to go to Missouri this week because my brother-in-law was killed in an accident a couple of days ago. He was 35 ft in the air cutting down a limb on a tree and fell to the ground when the saw kicked and knocked him off. It has been an awful shock to the whole family and it still has not seemed like it is real yet.
I feel soooooo bad for my sister in law. I keep thinking about if it would've been me and how horrible it would be. She is doing better today but my heart goes out to her. They have 8 grown kids between the two of them,and am glad that they are all coming. One of their daughter's is stuck b/c of a bad snowstorm and will be able to come either today or tomorrow. Since the storm the visitation will not be until Friday.
Please keep the family in your prayers.

new cookbook

I just ordered a new cookbook. My sister in law made a very good recipe from this book and I found it really cheap on Hopefully will be able to use this all the time.Since I don't have a lot of time to cook some days,I would really like to be able to fix supper and forget about it. Can't wait for it to come now!!! :)

Christmas break


This is what people in our house have been doing over Christmas break. :)Love this picture. Just had to get it when all the girls were on their laptops. Too funny. It has been so cold and snowy here there really isn't too much more too do in the house, right? Ha. I could give them tons of things to do. We had a great Christmas and since the computer was not working well, I just now got some of the pictures uploaded. Guess just too busy to take time to sit down and do it. Today I am going to get all the Christmas things put up for another year. This time of year comes and goes so quickly. I am just happy that we got to spend some time with our family this year. Am so glad that my parents and grandparents got to come visit. Even though when they were here the weather did not co-operate like we would've liked it to.
