The first snow of the winter was a big one. Alex couldn't wait to get his snow pants on and go and help his dad shovel. After the front was done Alex and I went to the backyard to play with the dogs. Alex tried to play fetch with them, but it backfired. The ball kept getting lost in the snow, and Max and Chester couldn't find it.
These pictures are from our annual trip up to Lake Geneva Wisconsin. We go up with my cousins and their kids and we hang out on the beach all day. It is something that I look forward to every year. I have to say a HUGE thank you to Celina who made me a bunch of crocheted flowers. I used one of the pretty blue and white ones that she made for me.
I have a goal to finish scrapbooking all of my 2009 photos before May when the baby is due. I still have a lot left to do but yesterday I managed to get 6 layouts done with the help of my scrapbook etc. magazine. This is a layout from Easter 2009. It was our first Easter in the new house.
I was looking through scrapbooks etc. and I saw this pretty topiary. I tried to make the flowers that they had on theirs but they didn't turn out right. So I tried making the flowers that I ended up using. I love how it turned out. From the time that I started it to when I finished it was about 4 days. It took forever to make those flowers. But I just loved how this turned out. It has made my desk look so pretty when all you see outside is gray.
This is the kids first time that we lived in a house that has huge trees. Come fall Alex couldn't wait to go out and make a leaf pile to jump in. He worked for days to make a really really big pile(in his words). When he was all done he had Belle and Hannah come outside and have a leaf fight with him. They had so much fun!
