Oh well another week..

Zac had his first and second snow days last Thursday and Friday. We ended up with about 4 inches of snow but man was it cold. We have been huddled in the house since the cold started, we headed out a couple times for milk, bread, Mt Dew, and you know the things you cannot do without. I have been reading I am on my 4th book this month, I also have done a few scrapbook pages maybe I will get some pictures and add them. Today is a quiet day, Ernie is out watering the dogs as it is cold and the water is still frozen. Hopefully we will get above 32 degrees and it will start to melt. Zac is enjoying went back to school today, he enjoyed his 5 days off, played his play station 2, and watch cartoons, and played with his puppy.

Here is one of the layouts that I did, it is of a trip to the live historical farm. This is a Becky Higgins Sketch. I pulled out my Becky Higgins' sketch book and got 4 layouts done. I had a bad case of scrapper block and figured what better way to get pages done that pull out the sketch book choose a sketch and go.

My Boys

My Niece Mindee and her boys came up this past Saturday for my birthday, It was alot of fun and I got some great pictures.

Here is Jesus, he is 4 years old.

Here is Christian, He is 3 years old

Here is Junior, he is 2 months old.

Well So far so good, It has been one week today and I am here posting, I am excited that I am sticking to it. I actually added it to my weekly to do list. I have also added to scrapbook a page a day and to make a card a day. So far the cards I am doing good on, but i am behind on pages but I will catch up.

Zac had to build a balance for school for extra credit, that was fun watching him and Ernie work together on this as it was building and that is a guy thing right. ( that is my story as to why I could not help) He turns it in this morning, I will take a picture of it when he brings it home as I forgot to get one. Tomorrow is the end of the 2nd 9 weeks. So the school year is half over.

Zac is playing basketball, He had two games this last Saturday and one this Saturday. It goes through the end of January so far they have played 4 games and there record is 3-1 not bad.
He has never played basketball before but seems to be learning alot and having fun so that is good. He usually plays fall soccer and some indoor soccer, but we are looking into a spring soccer to see if there is someplace close that has a league.

The day before thanksgiving, we got mustang's full sister Appaloosa ( you knew it was going to be a horse name to go with mustang right). Well she has gained some weight was not heavy enough when we got her. She is doing really good, I hope to show her this year, Ernie has taken a liking to her and has been hunting her alot and she is making real progress out in the woods too.

So that is a little bit of what we have been up too.

Happy New Year!!!

Happy 2009, I can not believe it is the beginning of a new year already. I have my pork and sauerkraut on and cooking. The TV is on Football, Zac is playing Nintendo dogs and the dogs are in there pen napping. So I decided to post my first post of 2009 to my blog.

Today is all about the football games, so when I get tired of football I may go in my office and scrapbook. I hate that my numbers have to start over again. I had a great 2008 year. For scrapbooking, I did 164 pages in 2008 and 493 cards in 2008. So that was a great year.

For the dogs, Mustang finished into a NKC grand show champion and AKC supreme Champion. She is right now in second place in all the english coonhounds in AKC bench shows. We are hopeful that when all the results are in that we will take the lead back. She was in the lead for months then lost the lead and we have been trying to get it back.

So here is to a great 2009.
