My boy is back!
He flew off to California with his dad for two weeks.
We would facetime but we all missed his presence!
He loves Cali and awaits it every year.
It has been pretty chilly around here lately.
It rained a few days ago and left icicles on the trees.
Very pretty but watch out from above!
And it snowed today.
It was very exciting, though
none of it stuck.
The kids liked watching it fall and catching flakes of snow
on their tongue.
I don't know about other children, but mine love apples.
They take a few big bites and leave around the house in various places.
Some not found till it's too late.
So, I gathered up the better half of the bitten apples and diced them up.
Threw them in a pan with some butter and sugar and had an ice cream dessert
for the youngins.
Having a pretty swell week so far.
(it's only hump day)

Happy Valentines Day!
We had a fun relaxing one.
I actually set out to have a chill day.
And I did indeed.
Took a nap.
Finished Zeke's hat.
It was pretty simple, bulky weigh equals fast knit!
Those are not pacis.
They are ring pops they got for V Day.
It made them pretty happy.
I've been doodling lately.
Especially when I go in to see my mom and I'm there for 8+ hours and she is sleeping.
Oscar just returned from California with his dad.
Was gone for 2 weeks.
Good to have him home!
I am hoping for a chill-lax week.

A couple weeks ago we were all sick.
And sick of being sick.
So, as you know me, it was time for a mountain ride.
It was raining,
but I packed the brownies, some books, snacks and away we went.
(ok, here are the melted brownies...
don't ask me why the photo won't turn the other way)
and....there are no photos of the brownies, that's how yummy they were!
We stopped off at a couple thrift shops.
Picked up a few wooden pallets.
Found these awesome birds.
I think I should have grabbed them while I was there.
It was so beautiful even though it was raining hard and very foggy.
Some places were closed due to weather, but we will be back to see some of the art shops, antique and thrift shops and!! to see the goats on the roof!
It's almost Valentines Day and we have been a crafting around here!
Can't wait to see all the creations the kids make!

The kids and I needed a break.
So off to the mountains we went.
We and played at my parents home during the day and
joined up with friends for dinner.
We set out for donuts in the morning.
They were so fresh.
We drove through the mountains and jumped on a friends trampoline.
We stopped at Betty's country store and picked up some pumpernickel bread and pickles.
And a very large cookie for the littles.
We stopped at the river in Helen.
Zeke immediately rushed over and started climbing the rail.
Made me so nervous so we walked down to the waters edge and threw rocks.
Valentines day is approaching.
The kids have been busy coloring hearts.
We have been working on a heart coliage project.
Hope to have it finished soon.

The kids have been gone for the day.
I've had some quiet time for myself.
Went to yoga class tonight.
Had a really great workout.
Then I treated myself to dinner.
My mom is sick.
It has been unbelievable stressful.
For her, me, my dad.
Everyone she knows.
I cry and pray everyday for the strength she needs to get better.
The boys keep me on my toes.
I made her a hat to keep her bald head warm.
