Peaceful Days.....

Well, the predictions were true. The storm handed us not one, but two snow days. Both kids and mom were happy about the turn of events. It's been a nice couple of days with Allison finishing up her science fair project and Eric getting his pajama days. He only got dressed to go outside once each day and then promptly returned to his "new" lucky pants.*

* For those of you familiar with Eric's terminology -- he no longer considers his original "lucky" pants to be lucky. After he threw up on them, they seemed to have lost their charm. His new "lucky" pants are his red polar bear ones that he got for Christmas.

***As the snow was coming down, Scott had gone out to the garage to take care of some things. He came inside with an impish grin and said, "Boy, am I happy to have a garage!" I have to admit that I am also very thankful for that garage!

Allison, Mad Scientist

Allison's first science fair is this week. She chose to do a project where she cooks sodas down and discovers what is left. It's to test how much high fructose corn syrup is in each type of soda. She will display this somehow Friday at school and I, for one, will be glad when it is over.
Also, worth noting, Tuesday is Allison's first B Team Basketball Game. She shared with her Uncle Gregg and his friend, Nick, today that her coach told the girls that if they didn't each have two fouls during the game, he would know they weren't "hustling" enough. I think she's looking forward to the game.
We' ve had a busy weekend -- as usual! Saturday, we had an open house to attend for a friend who had just finished his Masters Degree. We shortened our visit with them so we could run and pick up Alyssa at Lynn & Gregg's so they could have a night out. Alyssa was as cute as usual! We brought her home, where she ate pizza and played until she finally wore out. We had saved our Little People Farm for a day just like this, so we brought it out for her. She LOVED it! Allison and Eric loved playing with her also. She is one loved little girl!

This is something new I would try. I am going to have to work hard at not being too picky about what I write or share -- otherwise, nothing will be written or shared!

I invite family and friends to view this every so often to see if there are any new pics of our lives. I hope I can make this something for all of you to enjoy!

This is one of my favorite pictures of us. It was taken July of 2007 (I know -- it's a while ago) in Colorado.
