No more photos!

March On!

Wow, it's been a busy week month and it's only the third!

I think it's the weather.  
Yes, I'm SURE it's the weather.

Sub zero temperatures, wind chills below that and snow...


and even more snow!

I kept looking out the French doors and saying to Mr. K that it was so beautiful...

and he said he was sick of snow, that he needed to see leaves on the trees and most of all, 

Being the good wife I am, I went into the basement and found these in his
 "stash of things single men really should not have" and planted them...


Before too long, they looked like this...

Did I tell you that I love snow?

While Mr. K was still grumbling, I put on my fancy-shmancy boots...

 Tucked the legs of my handy dandy pajamas in...

and went out side to play...

But  not for long!  

I had to come in to bake some fortified oatmeal raisin cookies...

(good grief, they look like meatballs, don't they?)

We were getting some very special company...

Andy and Ashley had Allyson Bodkin come to the house to photograph Locklan...

She does wonderful work and is sooooo patient, waiting for the perfect shot...

If you are kinda local, look her up:  Allyson Bodkin!  

So many things going on in my life right now...


Until someone knocked at the door...

and then Winnie discovered it wasn't Tony...

and was sooo bummed!

Mr. K is in Texas this week  on business...

At 2:30 AM I drove Tony and Noelle to the airport to catch a plane to Florida
for a little baseball, sun and sand.

They just sent me this...


Did I tell you I LOVE snow?
Maybe it was an exaggeration...

Dirty Boy!

I got this text message from Ashley the other day...
Doesn't like baths but got one anyway:
Made it to the bedroom and he pooped in his towel!
And then all of a sudden, he's happy!
Guess he wants to be a dirty boy?
What a stinker! 
When Andy was a toddler, we couldn't say the word 'bath' out loud or he'd be in the bathroom waiting for you.  He loved bath time.
When Tony was a toddler, on my way up the stairs with him I'd say, "Tony, it's time for a bath.  Why don't you get a head start and start screaming now." 
He did.
Kids, Grandkids, Husbands...I'm blessed!

Happy Chili Day!

Happy birthday, BFF

Gotta stop right here, right now, and wish a very happy birthday to my BFF, Nancy!
She and I have been friends since Michael, my oldest son, and Gary, her son went to Kindergarten together...about 40 years!

We've been through a lot together...
But now we have a stranger than strange connection...
Her daughter, Annett, is married to Mr. K's son, Rick.
What does that make us?
Nancy isn't online...in fact, she just sent her very first text a few weeks ago,
but if you see her, stop her and wish her a happy birthday!
Love ya, Nan!

Good thoughts for a Sunday morning...

Uncles With Cell Phones

Everyone was talking about how much Locklan looks like Andy, so Tony opened the ap on his phone to see if they really did look alike...

What do you think?
Now, we had a family breakfast at a local restaurant  planned,
 but since Mother Nature is up to her old tricks,
we decided to wait until next week.
I've got a new project started in my sewing room,
Mr. K will retreat to his office for a few hours...
And then we'll meet with a cup of tea in the family room
where we'll sit in front of the French doors and watch it snow,
watch the birds at the bird feeders
and wonder what those pesky squirrels are doing.
Maybe later Locklan will have his mother call to say he misses me...
There are days when it's so GOOD GREAT to be me...
