Fresh Air

The last 3 days here have been so beautiful - warm and breezy. We've had the windows open and the fresh air has been so nice. Yesterday we spent a little bit of time outside enjoying the sunshine and the warmer temps. I thought I'd share a few pictures of the kids. The sun was so bright that I couldn't get the lighting right with my camera, so I lightened them, which is why the first 3 look a little grainy.

I bought this little slide from the neighbor's yardsale last year for $5 - great investment! Ruthi loves it.

And I think CJ even likes it a little bit!

Ruthi loves to make silly faces - isn't she cute?

And look at those baby blues! Looking at these pictures, I think she needs a little trim of the bangs. I thought I was never going to get to say that!

Valentine's Dinner

I've been super busy this past week working on some stuff, and haven't taken very many pictures. So I thought I'd post these taken Valentine's night. We enjoyed our "special" dinner and a quiet night together which included watching American Idol. We are so addicted to that show! Anyway, here we are, and the cookie I made for dessert.

I also decided to start a "creative" blog where I'll be placing pictures of some of my scrapbook pages, cards and other things I've made. If you want to check it out, the link is to the right. I'm just about to put the pictures of the stuff I've been making this past week that has been keeping me busy.

Happy Valentine's Day!!!

I hope you all have a wonderful day full of love and lots of hugs and kisses! I bought a few trinkets for the kids, but decided not to go all out. I did pick up a red table cover and some Valentine's napkins, as well as a couple of red candles so we can have a special Valentine's dinner. I wanted to have red food, so we are having chili! Then I made a big chocolate chip cookie that I will decorate for dessert. We rarely have dessert, but decided this warranted a special treat. Just thought I'd make dinner a little fun.
I took some pictures of the kids the other day for Valentine's. I sent a few out in Valentine cards. However, my printer is printing really bad lately, I think the thing is just worn out and maybe it's time for a new one. Those whom I sent pictures to, I plan to have them reprinted and will send some better ones to replace them! Until then, you can see what it should have looked like. And for everyone else, here are my darling Valentines.

Ruthi's New Horse

That's right - Ruthi got a horse!! But this one we don't have to feed. A friend of mine had one of the "old timey" rocking horses on springs that she wanted to go to a good home. Since Ruthi loved riding the one at Aunt Sue's so much, we knew she would love this! So I went and picked it up. Ruthi's face lit up when I brought it in. She loves it of course. It's a bit big, and she can't get on it by herself just yet, but when she's on it, she has a blast. I think this "shoshey" (horsey) is going to be around for a long time!
