First Snow Play

We literally got about 12 inches of snow in a day. Now a days that is unheard of. Global warming, what?!?!? Anyway, we had a great time playing in it. Mike was able to use our neighbors snow blower. I mean it would have taken forever to shovel it. Michael was out with him guiding him. It was funny to watch, he kept trying to run in front of get at times getting completely covered with snow, ahh the joys of being young. I cringe if I have to touch the snow with an unprotected body part. Michael was face first in the snow. It was also nice to see how the neighbors emerge from their homes and rally to clean up the snow. We had another guy come up with his snow blower and offer to do our driveway as well. Its nice to see people are still helpful and kind.

NO his hat should be brown not white!

Better not stand there long, not sure when it will fall. Cool pic though

Winter Vacation 2009

Our Vacation was about one thing "RELAXATION." That's pretty much what we did.

Here's our bulleted outline of vacation
  • Saturday and Sunday- couch potato mode and look at pretty snow falling
  • Monday- hit up tannersville outlets and feasted at Pocono Brewing Company, ended our long day at Walmart!!
  • Tuesday- drove around the area for approx 5 hours! The kids did great and we covered major land and mileage. It was fun just finding random places only having a map in hand.
  • Wednesday- we got six inches of snow so we just hung indoors, cook, and ate all day.
  • Thursday- headed to Scranton and hit up Steamtown Train Museum for Michael. He was in train heaven and had a ball looking at all the trains and seeing everything there is to know about trains. We ended up at the Trolley Museum in the same parking lot. Here we ended up taking a 1 hour trolley ride on a historic 70 year old trolley that still ran along the train tracks. We went thru tunnels, chugged next to an old coal mine, and saw nature at its best. The tour guide was our personal guide since we were the only ones aboard, so he was filling our brains with so much useless Trolley info it was great!
  • Friday- cleaned up, went home to the hustle and bustle of christmas time. We purchased our tree and started decorating. ASAP

Enjoying first round of snow. Our dock is about 20 ft behind him, lots of rain :(

Perfect Daddy moment. When your heart just melts...

Guest Blogger anyone?

I have a job opening for anyone who knows my family to update my peeps on our happenings since I am not capable to do so. I obviously have become such a slacker, I need to get back into the groove.

Problem is we have been so busy lately with traveling to the mountains, birthdays, friends, activities, school, holidays. There is just too much going on that I have soo much to update you all on it would take forever. LOL.

So after this next week of vacation I will promise to get back on the saddle. You have my word. In the meantime get your christmas shopping done and get off my blog til next week!!

Love to you all!!!

Merrymead Pumpkin Patch

I have been coming to the same farm each year for Halloween since forever. I want my kids to get the same joy each year I had growing up. Michael already is a huge fan. Lily was happy to be along for the ride.

Fall days at the mountains

Ahhh the smell of smoke in the air. The leaves changing to the perfect color of bright orange and red. A new camera to capture the perfect color combinations. No humidity in the air. Just crisp cool fall days. Life is good.

Let the schooling begin

Here is Michael on his first day of Pre-School. I cannot believe I already have a child in school. Some days I cannot wrap my brain around the fact that life is flying by at such a high rate of speed...

Anticipating the winter months at the mountains

Here we are over Labor day weekend. We had a great time. Roasting marshmallows and hanging out by the camp fire. Fall was definitely in the air!
