Happy New Year to all.  Goodbye 2009, Hello 2010!

A couple days ago after the Christmas Eve blizzard, it snowed again another 3 inches or so.  This snow was a little more workable and fun and the temperature wasn’t too bad, in the 30’s.  Parker and Taylor set out and built a great snowman.  They worked really hard to get him just right.  I think he’s pretty cool (ha, cool, get it.? aheh, I’ve been cooped up too long!)

Here is snow plowed on  a sidewalk near our home.

It’s up over 4 feet high in some areas.  They must have plowed the road, then after the big piles of snow piled up on the sidewalks, plowed the sidewalks!  We took lots of pictures, but still can’t get the full affect.

Sam has really been loving the Geo Trax train he got from Santa for Christmas.  Although, we spend time setting it up for him, then he plays it for mere minutes and tears it apart, then wants it put together again.  Over and over and over!

The other boys have been having fun with it, too!  Even Scott.  Shhh, don’t tell him I posted this picture.

Looked in Sam’s room the other day, where all the children’s books are---on shelves.  Here’s what I saw.

He was just sitting there leisurely reading with ALL the books off the shelves.  SIGH!  There was probably a couple hundred books on the floor!  (Thank you, Kevin, for being the one to pick them up!)

Here’s Sam completely engulfed in something on tv.

Until he realized the camera was on him.  (Flash didn’t work right on this picture, but he’s darn cute!  For the record, Kevin took the picture. hehe)

Then he’d had enough.

Stay tuned.  I’ll be playing catch up on some yummy things I haven’t posted yet!  Hope ya’ll have a wonderful year ahead!

Great pictures! Can't wait to see what you have in store for 2010 - and it feels so weird to be typing that.

Happy New Year!

Aww I love the pics! Looks like the used a snow blower on those sidewalks, that's a lot of snow! Everything is frozen here. I sent TJ out to shovel the walk yesterday and it was all frozen! UGH Love the snowman too. I've been so busy with work my blogs have been neglected :( I did finally post a totally cool gift that Kristen asked me to help her make for her boyfriend. It came out great. Now to get something up on my food blog, it's been almost a week! Happy New Year my friend :)

Happy New Year!! Look at all of those books! At least he was enjoying himself. I feel your pain when it comes to rebuilding things over and over again. Hang in there!

That's the best part as a kid - all that snow! We have none (and last year at this time we had 46 inches). Glad they are enjoying their holiday, books and all your treats! Happy New Year!

I can't believe all the snow in KS! you've almost caught up to us Fargoans. We just came back from visiting fam in KC and Wichita, and we passed through Topeka, and I saw the Lawrence exit, and I SO badly wanted to take a day and visit. We miss you guys!
