Charlie discovered Candy Sticks today.  When I was little, they were called Candy Cigarettes and had a red tip on the end. What were people thinking?

After spending some time with Mama today, we came home and enjoyed some time outside.  Maddie and I planted some broccoli and carrots while Charlie and Noah played in the sandbox.

I am trying to grow carrots in pots this year.  I'll let you know how they turn out!

We picked some buttercups.  Paired with rosemary, they really brighten up my kitchen.

Our Snowy Saturday

17 Feb

Hi everyone!  I hope you are all having a wonderful, relaxing Saturday.  Ours has been pretty uneventful.  Because of the rainy, snowy weather we have been having all day, the kids and I  just pretty much hunkered down in the warmth of the house today.  When it snows I always have the urge to cook a big, unhealthy breakfast, so after eating that I felt like doing nothing for the rest of the day!

We did enjoy watching the biggest snowflakes fall that I think I have ever seen.  PeeWee enjoyed watching the snow, also.

PeeWee enjoyed watching the snow falling, but he didn't want to go outside in it!

The birds stayed busy at our bird feeder all day long.  We have lots of big, bright red cardinals, but it is hard to get a pic of them!  It is amazing how much food they eat.  We have to fill up the bird feeder every day or two.

The bird feeder is right outside our bedroom window so we can watch them from bed in the mornings.

Charlie spent a lot of time playing with his Lego’s today.

Charlie was so excited that we built a tower that was taller than him!

So today ended up being a good day to do a lot of nothing!  Now I am full from the big bowl of homemade veggie soup that I just ate (another mandatory snow day  must-have), so I think I will go do more nothing!

Let it Snow!

18 Jan

Good evening everyone!  For the few followers I have who are from more Northern areas of the US, you should probably get ready for a good laugh at this Southerners expense!

It is almost 8:00 here, and we are waiting on some snow.  We hardly got any snow last winter, so the forecast of a trace amount to 2 inches of snow is very exciting for us.  See, in North Carolina, a trace amount of snow means the end of the world as we know it.  We don’t have the tools and manpower dedicated to cleaning off the roads like more northern states do, and a lot of people don’t own cars or trucks that could safely go anywhere.  Schools and businesses close.  Already most schools around here are delayed in the morning, and at this point it’s only raining!  People storm the grocery stores to get milk and bread, which never made too much sense to be because if the power goes out what are you going to do with milk and bread?  Speaking of power, our is flickering already.

So with that explanation of North Carolina winters, I will tell you that we have had a very exciting, anticipation-filled day in my house.  I went out and bought some snow boots for the kids this morning (I had to go to 4 stores-can you believe that?!).  Maddie has been wearing hers around all night:ImageCharlie and I had some fun making snow scenes with cotton balls:Image

Charlie’s Masterpiece!

So, now we’re just waiting around for it to start snowing!  Hopefully I will have some snow pics to share with you tomorrow.
