It's snowing again!!!!!

I just looked out my back door and it is snowing again.... YAY !!! I am so excited! Earlier it was just barely snowing and now it is coming down really good and looking absolutely beautiful! I have so enjoyed this week....although I know we will definately be loosing days off or making up days somewhere down the road at school/work, for now it seems like it's worth it! And since we are not really accustomed to having such cold tempatures here we are mostly staying inside...where it's warm.... The cleaning/ organizing to do list is getting smaller and I am so thankful for the extra time off alowing me to get that done....I do still have one room to tackle.....and lots of fabric to go through and get rid of. I think another trip to Wal-Mart for totes{wonderful invention} is in order. The birds are staying on my backporch near the feeders and houses all the time now and some of them have ventured off into the the yard where Bobby hung his new deer feeder to try it out and has corn sprayed all over the ground .... for them it is a seed buffet! I only wish I had more houses for them all to stay warm in....I even noticed some of the smaller birds standing on the porch rugs this guess is to keep those little feet warm. Our stray, abandened , adopted cat Puffers has been missing for a few days though { I think he is IN the neighbors house enjoying the company of their cats ....they call him Bob...we call him puffers, leaving his feeding bowl available to the other 2 stray cats who have been batteling over who gets to eat the food....sometimes it's quite a show! That about sums up our last few unentertaing as they may seem , they have kept me happy....I could do this all winter!

Playing catch up......

So now that I have been off work for almost 2 weeks for Christmas break, I am finally starting to catch up on some things...October through December always seem to be so crazy busy for us that a lot of times things just don't get done or get put aside for later{or later than later in my case} Anyway.....I did finally get some things accomplished and have had several much needed and wanted jammy days, a wonderful Christmas with my family, beautiful snow yesterday that is still on the ground today{added plus!} and a few pictures along the way....OHHH did I mention that I got a camcorder for Christmas...that should make things fun for trips and family gatherings {thanks to my sweetie pie husband} {Jaycie sitting up like a big girl in between Uncle Josh and Aunt Bree}
Before anything on Christmas morning we read the Christmas story from Luke chapter 2 . this year Bree read for us....I remember when they were all too young to read the Christmas story{flashback!} Now two of our three children have babies of their own that will all too soon be able to read themselves....
{Kayden really had fun this Christmas.....he is learning that the presents under the tree mean toys for him!} {Jaycie was perfectly content chewing on wrapping paper or bows}
{Candace watching Josh open his gift from Melissa.... a new pair of boots}
{Jimmy and Kayden sharing good morning hugs!} {opening gifts}{Kayden playing under a chair...wouldn't life be so much simpler if we could all be entertained so easily? } Mr Kooper slept through the whole thing...... such a sweet lil baby =)
Then for New Years Day we went to do the "I need totes to organize this house" shopping but stopped along the way to get some pictures of Bree and Dalton for their first New Years Day together.....
{ And my good sport of a husband let me get some of him also......}
{ This may be what he really wanted to be doing but he endured the shopping/photo/lunch trip with us!}
{ caught him snapping a few shots with his phone...of me.....{probably won't be posting them!}
That's about it for now....back to work tomorrow unless the roads don't get any better today.
