Oh, we sure love this boy of ours. I'm grateful every day to be his mama.

The kids were all SO excited to create an extra special day for Marty this year, especially because his birthday was on s Saturday and we knew he'd be home all day. They made cards, coupon books, and decorations WEEKS in advance. Their grandma Vieira also help them make handmade gifts. I think they achieved their goal of "extra special."
The day was relaxing, pretty peaceful, and full of love for our sweet papa man. I love these memories, and I love this sweet family of mine.

For the past few months, the idea of blogging has seemed more like a chore than a joy. So I took a little break. But now I find myself missing the opportunity to record and share some sweet memories.
Our winter has been slow in coming this year. We had one good storm, but the majority of it melted off pretty quickly. Back toward the beginning of January we had our first few flakes fall. It didn't amount to anything, but the kids all wanted to celebrate and get geared up.
I never used to enjoy the winter, but I find myself loving the slow pace and quiet indoor activities more each year.
Annie is not too sure about this squishy stuff.
This big kids like to say they work in a cookie factory.
More snow may be heading our way this next week. We're heading to the grocery store today and then getting ready to hunker down a while. We'll be happy to do so.
