Snow Storms, Stomach Bugs & Smiles


Well my hopes for less snow this winter have been dashed. We’ve had a few good storms that dropped a lot of snow.

There IS a car under there.....I think? 😯

God's beauty can be found everywhere.....you just have to look

We were also hit with the stomach bug  😦  Gus was the first one to get it. Then it hit JoJo and the last one to have it was Ry-Guy. It was a quick bug to pass through and it only lasted 1 -1 1/2 days. PTL none of the other kiddos got it.
Through all of this chaos we’ve still had our smiles and fun 🙂
Yes Gus is wearing a Christmas bib – 😆

JoJo and Busy Bee acting silly

Morning madness


Ok not a smile but an adorable pic of Gus!!!



Is The Day Over Yet??


Ugh…what a day and it’s not even 9am yet!! I was woken up by Busy Bee at 3am telling me she is thirsty. Then seconds later hearing that “splat” knowing it’s not water on the floor!! So I clean her up. Say a prayer of thanks that she wasn’t in my bed at the time and get her tucked into bed. Sigh…I can’t sleep!! So I switch on the tv and watch an old episode of the Brady Bunch!! Just after I’ve fallen asleep I hear “Mooom” Ugh…this time it’s from Chip. He’s wet his bed 😕 Seriously?? I just fell asleep!! So I drag my butt out of bed and get him re-dressed and strip his bed. This time I’m saying a prayer of thanks that JoJo (even though he was awakened) doesn’t cry and quietly watches me make the bed!! Ahh…4:30am and I’m back in bed. It feels like I blink my eyes and morning is here. Bright white, lots of snow, still snowing, cold, windy morning!!! As I’m enjoying the last seconds of my warm bed my hubby reminds me he needs his work clothes washed and dried 😯 Groan…I drag myself downstairs to the laundry room and switch up the laundry. Fast forward (only because I can’t remember what I did after that 😉 !) and here I am sitting at my cpu. It’s gonna be a loooong day home with 5 kiddos!!!

Ugh I’m in A “Mood”!!!


Any other day and I’d be loving the snow. But today it makes me mad!!! I was really looking forward to church today. Today was the start of new Sunday school classes and Communion Sunday. I still could have made church and skipped Sunday school but I just didn’t have the umph to get the kids dressed 😦 Now I’m in such a “mood”!! I don’t want to be…really I don’t. But I can’t seem to find a way out. I know that once I get myself into something (watching tv, reading, housework) I’ll be ok. But I’m stewing in this mood 😕 And the longer I think about it the more “moody” I get 😳 🙄 Sigh….I’m gonna clean up a little…hopefully that’ll make me feel better???
