I amuse myself...

Okay, I'm known for being a "hyena", a "Wilma" (because I laugh like Betty or Wilma on the Flintstones) or just a plain old GIGGLY GIRL!!
But tonight, my husband got me - so I just had to share:

Me: Explaining that we should start Weight Watchers and then telling him the points difference in our evening snacks (mine 3 pts, his 6-7 pts)
Fred: "Well, I can have that many points because I haven't had any points yet today!" (Meaning - this is the first "points" he's counted today - not that this is all that he's eaten...)
Me: Laughing so hard that I can't breathe, my eyes are watering and Fred "shushing" me and telling me not to wake up the kids.

Yes, I am a dork - but I enjoy life! :) And I enjoy my husband - he makes me laugh!
Now you can all laugh at what a wierdo I am and you probably don't even get what was so funny about what he said... that just makes it all the more funny to me (and yes, I'm still laughing about it!)

Snow Boys!!

If you have boys - you know they LOVE to be outdoors... no matter WHAT the weather!

So the kids and I took a Sunday off a couple of days ago (much needed time at home) because we have just been RUNNING lately! And it worked out perfectly because it had just snowed the night before.
Connor went sliding last year - with Momma - and loved it! But I don't think as much as he loved it this year... he went down a few times with his big brother who took care of him (how sweet!).

In case you can't tell which one is which - Colton is in front and Connor is in back... yes, they are pretty much the same size right now!

I love my boys and I love when they are nice brothers and do things together...
God is good!

FINALLY picutres of my homemade goodies

I know this is a little late - I mentioned it awhile ago... and then made it for dinner last week (but then forgot that the pics were on my phone - until I just found them)

I made those DE-LI-CIOUS pannekoeken's with an apple/raisin sauce for the top... SOOOOO good! So here's some pictures for you to drool over! :)

This is the pannekoeken plain - without the apples... still very nummy with syrup on it!

And here it is with the apple/raisin sauce...

My son is "special"...

If you knew me at all growing up - I was a special child! I had an "interesting" way of dressing myself sometimes and doing some interesting activities from time to time (who am I kidding - I'm still a dork when I want to be - just ask my hubby!)

So here's my son's idea of "fun" the other night...

He's wearing only his diaper, his blankee (as his "cape") and his DAD'S socks! He ran around the house just LAUGHING for quite awhile at his "genius" idea....

I love my kids! :) They definitely make me laugh!

PS - And just to point out for the "keen" eye - you can see just how special Colton is as well if you see his "table" that he made to play school with Grandma in the background - the box from my Christmas tree with pillows on top (and his birthday crown from school) and his rocking chair (Evan's old one) right next to it! :)

ALL my children are special! :)
