Spring is on its way

Ummm...where did these come from? I took this picture on Monday I think so they have been there for awhile. I just couldn't believe it. I have no idea what they are. It is like Christmas. I guess my top two guesses would be tulips and crocuses. I can't wait until they bloom. Just wait, I will watch them for weeks and they will just be some boring green stem thing.

So I have become kind of addicted to a site called You should check it out. They sell one thing a day until it is sold out. Usually they are electronic, which I am not interested in, but I love the kids one. I have never bought anything, but I know if I watch long enough I will find something I just have to have. Today on woot it is a woot off, so they will put up a new item when one sells out. I just love to see what is going to be up next. Try it. You will see. It is addicting.

Valentine's gift

This is what Sam made me for Valentine's Day. Quilling. I haven't even done it before. I knew he was crafty deep inside, someday I will get him to make a quilt. I thought it was very thoughtful of him. I just gave him candy in a cup, how boring.

Sinclair's favorite game

Sinclaire wanted to play a game the other day, so she picked mastermind off the shelf. At first I said no, and then I thought I could play it some how. We simplified the rules a bit and it is fun. She loves to play and it is way better than memory.

**Tonight I played life with the girls and decided that they were a bit young. It was my favorite game when I was younger so I was dying to play it. I think I will wait awhile longer for a second round.

We had family home evening last night. We made paper dolls and talked about how people are not all the same, we are all different. Pops was the only boy in the room so I asked Sinclaire what was different about him. I was expecting the obvious, he is a boy, but no she said, "He has no hair." I just love kids.

My new love

I told Sam the other day that I had a new love. And I do. Broiled asparagus. It is so good, I have probably eaten it every other day for about 3 weeks. It gets crispy on the ends and then you just add salt and pepper. So good.

Happy Valentine's Day

What did you get to do on your Valentines morning? I got to sew on patches. Aren't they beautiful. It is scout Sunday today, so this was supposed to be done yesterday while I was gone, but it just didn't get there. Oh well, I am not sure I would want Sam to use my sewing machine.

This is picture of the floor in the family room. We still have to put up the baseboards, and chair rail, and something around the fire place, but that will come in time. We really need a rug in there too. Kind of sad that you go through all that trouble and then throw a rug over it.

Car accident you see a problem? I think the princess missed her ride. I just thought this was so cute. Let's hope in 14 years this doesn't really happen.

Four year olds should not have gloves.

My mom was here this week and we had a great time. The girls just sort of followed her around and wouldn't let her take any breaks. I just sort of did nothing and took a break myself. I guess I did read a book though, that had to count for something. Sam has started to put the trim up around the door frames and the baseboards in. So at least some progress is happening. Now I just need an extra room for my food storage. Here are some pictures of the house I grew up in. I just love the second picture, a giant ball of flames. It used to be a building behind the house.
