The BIG Snowstorm





I don't remember EVER seeing this much snow. It is sooo beautiful!!!!!!!!!! Reminds me of when Mr. Ingalls opened up the window and climbed out onto the snow in his snow shoes.
I am happy to be snowed in with the ones I love so much! Steve is home today and that NEVER happens!!!!!
I am looking forward to watching American Idol tonight and not having to worry about going anywhere.
Emily has been working hard on her Valentine cards and Sarah Kate has been pretending she is Clara from the Nutcracker.
I have worked my way through a pile of clean laundry that was deeper than the snow. BIG ACCOMPLISHMENT FOR ME!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I love to wash clothes, I just hate putting them away.

First off, I love your fireplace. It is gorgeous. That is a lot of snow you have. We are getting snow tonight *or so they say*. I must admit I'm really ready for Spring though. I too have done tons of laundry the past two days. It is piled sky high unfortunately and still needs put away. Oh well, maybe later. Hope you enjoy your snow day. Stay warm!!

Wow...that is a lot of snow. I love a good snow day with tons of snow and no where to go!! Glad you are having such nice family time....and, I totally agree with you on the laundry. I keep up with washing and drying, but the piles of clean clothes keep growing!
Putting away clothes is awful. I dread it and am terrible about letting laundry pile so high that it's embarrassing. The snow is beautiful. Enjoy the sweet time with your fam.

I can't believe how much snow you all are getting! Living in CA we NEVER get this; maybe a little frost if we're lucky.

Cillajust looked at your blog and shouted "Kate!!!" That is what she has been calling her since you guys were at our house! Glad you have had a good day at home with your family. It IS so beautiful!

I just hate putting folded towels and underwear away! I leave them in the basket until I need it to carry laundry again, then I consolidate them in another basket, so they can still sit there until we need them! Why is that? :-)

Hey! This morning when I got up and looked outside my first thought was this is like that Little House on the Prairie episode...actually, I call that show Little Sob Story on the Prairie. Anyway, then I thought of you and wished we were eating chips and salsa somewhere sunny and warm! If the snow will clear for longer than one day, we'll go to dinner!

I'm so glad I'm not the only one who loves washing clothes, but hates putting them away. Wait... putting them away isn't so bad. It's the folding part that gets me.

I have been needing new jeans and haven't been able to find any, after seeing your post the other day about the Gap long and lean jeans I saw a pair on EBay for $10 bucks and bought them. They are awesome! Fit perfect too:) Thanks for posting about them, solved my jean dilemma.

Complicated

Maybe I am wrong, but I don't remember life being so complicated when I was in middle school. Everything is so competitive now.  Maybe it was back then and I just didn't realize it. Sarah Kate started playing city league softball a couple of weeks ago.   We've been encouraged to get her private batting lessons. When I was in third grade I started playing softball and I just did it for fun!  No stress at all, as far as I can remember!  I just played.  I wasn't very good, but I liked it! Ha! Emily started band this year!  Before school started, I got a letter from the school district strongly encouraging "your band student to take instrument lessons."  WHAT?  I bought into it and got Emily private clarinet lessons (which she really enjoys)! But, what happened to learning as you go?  I never thought about taking private trumpet lessons when I started band. It seems like most parents are striving for their child to be THE BEST.  I guess that's a go

Something Good to Eat

Ever since Steve and I started dating, when we would go to Mississippi, his aunt would make the BEST ROAST IN THE WORLD!!!!!!!!!!! Steve's Dad's side of the family gets together at his Granny's house for lunch every Sunday after church. The food is always sooo good!!!!!!!!!!!! I have always taken a liking to his Aunt Judy's roast. It really is the best roast I have ever had. When we were there on Labor Day weekend, my sister in law asked Aunt Judy for the recipe. Aunt Judy began naming all the ingredients. She said Ranch Dressing mix, and I bugged my eyes out and nearly chocked. I HATE RANCH DRESSING. I don't even like to be in the room with it. I had to focus on the word MIX....not the mayo and butter milk and sour cream that you add to it. Just typing those words makes me shudder. The recipe sounded awful as she rattled off the ingredients, but I promise, you have got to make this if you like a good roast. Trust me on this. Here it is: Get a tender chu

Life in Pictures!

Emily is enjoying her first year in band.  I am very impressed with her playing skill! Sarah Kate was recently awarded the empathy award at her school.  She is very deserving of this! Here we are before the Cotillion Holly Ball.
