Well I guess it's official. . .

Winter is here! Decatur was covered with our first snow of the season on Saturday night, and then again last night. The kids were so excited to wake up and find a couple of inches this morning. I wish I could say it was loads of fun playing outside, but somehow the fun never lasts more than a few minutes. . . how is it that it takes half and hour to get four kids (three of whom are self sufficient) dressed for snow and out the door, and then they only actually last out there for roughly, five minutes? Then you have a pile of wet clothes and shoes,lol. Aah, winter in Illinois! Only a few months to go! hahahaha. Stay warm and have fun friends!

If nothing else, I have some fun new photos of my own kids, who have been woefully neglected in the photo department this fall!

This is definitely a new favorite for me. My oldest son, Jack, hates to have his photo taken, but he was having fun and gave me a relaxed happy face when I called his name. Lucky mom.







I guess it's time to remove the pumpkins from the front porch! hahaha.




May I just point out that James is wearing his "indiana jones" hat. He is rarely without that thing,lol.

Thank you friends!

And Cheryl, you're too sweet. Yes, Jack has my smile (poor kid-hahahaha)! He looks almost exactly like one of my younger sisters (his long hair doesn't help,lol!). Glad I'm not alone with teh pumpkin neglect!

Thanks so much, really, thank you!
