Another Birthday, Already???

Today, Kirsten celebrates her birthday. But not too much birthday, as she and Tim are knee deep busy with the wedding of their friends, Heather and John. The grandkids will be arriving shortly to spend Sat. with us. Anyhoo, Kirsten, hope you have a Happy Birthday!

Birthday Celebrations!!

Dear Cait,
I am posting this for your benefit, since you couldn't be here to celebrate with us, although you were here in spirit, I am sure. This is a big birthday weekend for our family, with Harlee's today and Kirsten's tomorrow. We met Kirsten and her crew for lunch at Chiles. The kids actually behaved. Then we came back to Nana's and Papa's for presents and cake. Kirsten did a terrific job decorating Harlee's cake. Harlee loved her blankie and dollie you made for her. Kirsten didn't know you had made the doll and thinks that is how you should be putting yourself through school. Nana and Papa got Harlee a Leapster, that I think was a big hit, along with the doctor kit. Nick managed to nap through all the cake and presents.

Happy 3rd Birthday, Harlee

Today is your 3rd birthday, Harlee. Not sure where those 3 years have flown. You have brought us laughter, frustration and great joy. You still love your books. You are our princess, but you think you should be a mermaid. Nana and papa love you to bits. Have a wonderful birthday, Toots

Middle of the Week

Good Morning. Off for a few days, after working the last two. Yesterday was very busy and I am happy to be on days off. Still wintery and cold out.
A couple more layouts I finished recently to share with you.

Snow, snow, snow---oh my!!!!

The pictures speak for themselves. It was snowing Friday pm, when I came home from back east. My mum is at peace now and no longer suffering. I can rest easy knowing this. Hopefully have more productive days now, instead of worrying to death what was going on with my mum and stepdad. She had a wonderful celebration of life, with the church filled to the brim. It would have made her happy. I will miss her immensely.

Curtis is out in the snow taking photos. Kirsten and Tim just stopped by for the sleds to take the kids out in the snow. So, I called Curtis to head over to take photos of the kids.

Sign of the Season

This frosty fellow was at the end of the street yesterday morning when Cait and I headed off to Helena. There wasn't much left of him when we returned. We had a high of 53F , only Helena couldn't get out of the 20's. I guess those chinook winds are good for something. Nice to have a little break from winter's snow and cold. Just as nice today--took the car through the car wash. It was filthy.

Harlee Goes Sledding

Today was an awesome day to take Harlee sledding. The chinook winds are blowing, so the temperatures have warmed up and there is plenty of snow around from earlier in the week. Nana, Auntie NickNack and Harlee had a pj party last night, since Grandpa was on the road. Nana made pancakes and bacon for breakfast and then we headed out to Giant Springs to try out the hills.

My Little Helper

This is what happens if I leave the broom closet door ajar. Nicholas finds my brooms and they are soon out and he is trying to sweep the house. And he has an absolute fit if you take it away. The one thing he loves without buttons.

Happy New Year- 2010

Happy 2010. It's a new year, a new decade. Wishing everyone all the best for 2010.
I was in bed long before the new year came along. But the front door has been opened and the new year let in.
Hope to get my decorations down today.
And then back to work tomorrow for the weekend.
