February Vacation Part 1

So because of all the SNOW SNOW AND MORE SNOW....
 
We decided to make the best of it and paint ourselves a flower garden :)

tough keeping this guy out of it....but pretty much same thing happens with REAL flowers... ;)

it sure was beautiful while it lasted....




and these two had a blast for about 20 minutes so I guess that's what matters :)

On Saturday it was the local Annual Kids Ice Fishing Derby... one of their crew actually won FIRST PLACE over all with this big guy.....
 

Minnie came in 2nd in her age division....

Miss B threw down some snacks...

and did actually win 3rd place in her age division with her ".11 lb" fish :) she could NOT be MORE proud!



a good day on the ice for SURE!
Meanwhile in "the big city"....
 
I was off for a SLEEPOVER with "the redheads" :) We have not hung out together for about...oh.... 3 years... all three of us together... it was LONG overdue and we had the BEST time...

I love my girls and it was such a treat to spend 24 hours with them!!!!
 
On Tuesday, the girls and I brought a meal over to the Trem's...just so we could snuggle the newest family member ;) Baby Maura is just SO sweet and my big girl was even more of a "baby hog" than her FATHER usually is... :)


On Wednesday we took advantage of the nice weather and an early morning doc appointment for Husband and spent the day out and about... we introduced the girls to Reilly's... um... is it bad they had never even HEARD of it before? :)

and it was buy one get one cream horn day...

Thursday we enjoyed the AH-MAY-ZING 60 degree weather and the big giant hill.... we did not have access to the "ride up the hill" this time so a few times up and down was definitely enough for little legs....



Fun with friends!

short-sleeves in February....




Excited for more adventures to come....

A Weekend in Jammies

Last weekend was Husband's annual ice fishing derby. They did VERY well :) Well... one of them did anyway :) The girls and I had big plans for some fun of our own but other than Friday night (which was short lived) and Saturday AM spent with MIL driving around in a snow storm... :) We hung in our jammies all weekend....
 
SIL L had asked Minnie and Miss B earlier in the week if they would be willing to hand out flowers and gift bags during Senior night... Miss B was ALL.OVER.THAT. (Minnie, not so much :)

All dressed in her ball-ah clothes....

and she did a GREAT JOB!!

Course about 1/2 way through the 2nd period her fever was back with a vengeance and we left at 1/2 time but she just had the BEST time "helping" the big girls :)

Saturday jammies and popsicles (Miss B wouldn't eat ANY.THING.)


and Sunday jammies with movies in Mommy's bed

we sure were happy to see this guy get home... too bad he came down with the nasty sickies too as soon as he got home to snow storm after snow storm....

Farm Time

For years... literally... years now "Miss Jenn" has been asking Husband to bring his girls over to snuggle with her "ponies".... finally on Sunday after church we made it happen... they even got to take a quick little walk around the yard...


this girl is a NATURAL... she loves to ride...

now... ;)
Minnie: May 2011
Pretty paint and draft.... I LOVE big horses

This 'ol guy is going to be 32... Miss Jenn has had him since he was 4 years old... he's blind on one side, has survived Lyme, being hit by a small truck and other ailments... but having two girls love, pet, brush and talk to him made him almost fall asleep... in fact when Miss B was brushing in just the right spot he sort of leaned into her... ;) trying to get closer....

a final icy walk to the chicken coop to gather up eggs and my girls hearts were full, boots were muddy and jackets were dusty and smelling like barn. We all left HAPPY for sure!
 
Can't WAIT to do it again in the spring and maybe even MOM can get on this time! :)
