Winter Wonderland 2010…

Well a happy belated New Years to everyone!  It already seems like time is flying.  Over the Christmas holiday we were gifted with a “lovely” stomach virus, the kids seemed to be able to bounce back from it with in 6 hours where us adults took a couple days getting our footing back.  What’s up with that?   It took over a week for it to pass throughout our family, with me catching it last on the night before New Years Eve.  Yuck!

This week has already been a busy one for us with Maddie’s birthday on Sunday and my dad’s birthday on Monday.  Today we have a break and have been snowed under.  Tomorrow and Thursday the kids have 4-H and on Thursday we all get to go in for the big 20 week ultrasound.  The girls and most of the boys are crossing their fingers hoping that a little girl will be found.  (Teigen is too cute right now, he’ll come up and hug my already huge belly and say “I love you little baby.”  “Did you know there is a little baby in mommy’s tummy?”)  It’s hard to believe I’m already more than half way through this pregnancy!  Then on Friday we get to have a fun-filled night in Whitefish, staying at a hotel,  swimming and eating  pizza and cake.  :0)

Today we are enjoying the break and just keep looking at all the beautiful snow that has accumulated over the last couple of days….

Prince Charming?

Today while weeding Tori let out a scream like…well… like a girl that just accidentally touched a toad instead of a weed!  I’m sure the neighbors wondered who was just murdered, it was so loud!   As the girls ran the other way from the toad, Garrett had a look of excitement wash over his face as he ran toward the source of the scream and found the little hopper.  They decided to hold  him captive in a big bowl until the little kids woke up.  Eventually Tori even kinda warmed up to him and you can tell she’s wondering…
Tori's Prince Charming?

I’m afraid for her that this might be the only Prince Charming her father will be allowing in the house for quite some time! LOL ;0)
He's even kinda cute!

After they were done checking him out they let it go back out in the shady corn patch to eat more bugs and to hopefully live happily-ever-after!
