The Lord is near. Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, shall guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. ~Philippians 4:4-9

Our family is a circle of strength and love, with every birth and every union, the circle will grow, every joy shared adds more love, every crisis faced together, makes the circle stronger

bliZZard 2011 = bEsT of TiMeS with fRiEnDs!!

Blizzard of January 2011...we never ever get this much snow!! The weather men had been predicting this storm for over a week and this time they finally were right on it!! We got 8.5 inches at our house but other areas around us got as much as 12 inches. Today we are on our 3rd day out of school but feel like today will be the last snow day for Sam. Chad went back to work today and what is normally a 25 minute drive was an hour and half this morning, CrAzY. We have thouroughly enjoyed our time at home and in the snow!! I feel like a bear thats about to hibernate though....gotta stop eating and get back on our normal schedule!! We have been sledding.sledding.and more sledding. Made some snow cream that was yUm-O. Snowball fights. Lots of fun times for sure. But....the snow can go now, I am so ready for SpRinG!!

this was shortly after the snow began on Sunday night, it came down so fast and was beautiful
it didnt take long for the snow to accumulate

our house... Monday morning we woke up to 8.5 inches

we headed up to the M-ville ball park where there was a great hill for sledding with friends
me and my boys about to head down the hill!! so much fun!!

the big kids had as much fun as the little kids :)

Love the excitement on their faces

These pictures just make me smile! I love the excitement on Sam's face & how carefree you look! Definitely memories none of you will ever forget! And mostly I'm just jealous of how cute you look all color-coordinated...I always look like a mismatched hodge-podge when trying to stay warm :)
