Forget You

I am really irritated with Winter right about now. I’m so ready to be done with the rain and the colder temperatures. It’s muggy and nasty out today on top of being cold. In a little while I have to bring Alexis and Brandon out in it to the eye doctor. Alexis needs a check up related to her pink eye. It seems to be getting better. (Knock on wood!)

This weekend we got a brief break from the colder temperatures. It actually hit seventy degrees! I grabbed Brandon’s bucket of sand toys and we went to the lakefront after Jordan’s hippotherapy appointment to go play in the sand. It’s not the same if you have to wear a jacket, but at least we got out a bit.

The sun kept trying really hard to peek through the nasty clouds. At least it wasn’t raining. I had to giggle at the kids playing in their jackets because usually when we go they are in swimsuits. These photos should make for interesting scrapbook pages at least.

As you can tell, they didn’t mind much. They must have a case of cabin fever like I do.

Where is Alexis? Pouting because it was cold. I swear that child doesn’t have an ounce of body fat and she gets cold really easily. She ended up sitting by Ronnie. We didn’t stay long because as the sun started going down we were ALL cold.

I edited the goodness out of Lexie’s photo because I’m planning a preteen scrapbook page about having an attitude. She’s going to love it. (Not!)

Since it’s Monday I have a few layouts to share as well from my creative team work.


Journaling: Things to love... 1. Your super sweet smile that makes me smile right back at you. 2. The way you can't get through singing a song without falling down and playing the clown. 3. Your independent nature. (If you can do it yourself, you will.) 4. The way you are entirely fearless. 5. The way you say "Mommy". 6. Watching you do gymnastics at the gym. 7. How cute you are. And the list goes on and on!

Journaling: "Yes, you're lovely. Never ever change. Keep that breathless charm. Won't you please arrange it? 'Cause I love you just the way you look tonight." -Frank Sinatra The lyrics to this song always remind me of you. I think you are the most lovely girl both on the inside and out. You amaze me with your kindness and your wonderful, outgoing personality. I am inspired by you! 11-2010

Well Chickie.. I will trade you. It is snowing, still. I already have a few inches of white fluff that I shoveled this morning and looks like it will need to be shoveled again. Saving that for Greg. I did it the first time. hee!hee! I would give to be able to play in the sand... could pretend with the snow!LOL Just not the same effect and very much colder!!! You will be warming up in March.. then, it will be hot! Just remember that when in March it is 80 degrees + and I am buried in snow!! LOL Should make you feel better... while it will be June before it gets even close to 80! (if I am lucky!)
