Snow Day

One of our favorite place to go on a snow day is the library. Yesterday was a snow day so can you guess where we went? First we went for a drive in search of a great view jeremy told me about on his way to work. I don't know if you can see it but the trees are frosted over with snow and ice. Simply beautiful. Then we went to the library. First thing was noticing Jaedon had no shirt on under his jacket only a vest. Whan I asked him where his shirt was (I know I out one on him) he replied by saying "I'm a cowboy baby" with a fake country accent and everything. Daddys like of Kid Rock is rubbing off. Then we had fun. We put together some puzzles and I read them a couple of books. Then JJ and I read "The Cat in the Hat" together. I was worried because our volume kept getting higher and higher as the story went on until the librian came over so she could hear the story as well. Then JJ read us a Hhandy Manny book and we went home. Perfect day!

Like a Little Child

Today we went to lunch at McDonald's. It is one of the newer one with a large TV tuned into CNN. JJ started watching TV and asking lots of questions about the shooting in AZ. They replayed some of the speech given by Obama last night encouraging us to live our lives for the little girl who can no longer liver hers. I felt touched by the thought but I was unaware how much it was touching JJ as well. After it was over JJ said to me "I know you don't like Obama very much but I think he's right. Can we do something for the little girl." I was surprised he knows my political views and glad he is starting to understand what is going on by watching the news. So i asked him what he wanted to do for the little girl. My heart melted when he told me he wanted to give the little girl all of his birthday money and two of his toys. I started crying. We made a compromise and hes going to donate two of his toys and write letters to everyone hurt in the shooting. I is days like today that I understand what Christ meant by being like a little child. Not being ignorant of whats going on but learning what we can and opening our hearts to those around us. I love my kids and don't know where I would be without them.

I just discovered that I have not been publishing all of the posts I have been writting so you 5 tonight. Jeremy bought me a new computer for Christmas and some things are very different even if they look the same. The computer tech says as more people begin using Windows 7 there will be less bugs so now I know and we can keep up better.

Computer Chairs

Here is the kind of thing that I won't let happen at my house. I'm so glad they can do it at Grammies. They were so nice the shared and played and were very sweet most of the time.

Fun at Grammy's


Peter Parker eat your heart out!
