(Cb00, Maddy and Mr. Tennis)

While I wait (and wait and wait) to feel back in the blogging groove, here is a bit of randomness to start the week along with a couple pics of my fam.
  • Temps of 50 degrees in February feel so much warmer than 50 degrees in October.

  • In February, people are wearing flip-flops when we get to 50; in October - winter coats! :)

  • The fall leaves that I hoped would blow away to someone else's yard over the course of the winter have simply piled up next to the house and gotten really, really yucky.

  • Nobody is jumping in those leaves.

  • Love the sunshine, but not fair that I can now see better just how dirty my windows have gotten.

  • Dog toys are ignored by doggie while kid's toys are chewed up!

  • Toothless grins are some of my favorites!

  • Telephone conversations with your Mom - priceless.

what a beautiful family!

Yes, agreed on the toothless grins and the telephone conversations with MOM.

Thinking of you lots.

Well you have some very astute observations I believe...
yes 50 degrees in February feels way warmer than that same temp in October. And phone calls with mom are wonderful.

hugs to you my friend...

Love the new pictures of the fam! Janie is getting soooo big!

I hope the nice weather returns soon! I am ready for capri pants and flip flops.

We have the same puppy issue here!

So ready for the weekend already!

Beautiful pictures. So nice to have you back again. I totally agree about the 50 degrees perspective. I can't wait to see green grass. This latest storm on Sunday dumped 10 inches of new snow. Enough already!

Janet, Thank you so much for stopping by. I was actually catching up on your blog last night and trying to leave you a comment before I got interrupted by the kids. My heart is so heavy with sadness for the loss of your mother. I have been thinking about that quote you posted on how it's the first sorrow not shared with your mother. I think your mom is watching over you and giving you strength everyday. She was a wonderful woman and obviously wonderful mother to you all. Please know my thoughts are with you.

Hoping the 50 degree temperatures return soon for both of us! Love your perspective on the temperatures fall vs. Spring-so true! And the dirty,wet leaves couldn't be uglier! Agree about the phone calls to our Mom's. Know that you continue to be in my thoughts and prayers. I hope you are doing well:) Spring, sunny days, and warmer temps aren't far off- until then I hope you stay warm and continue to enjoy that toothless grin!

You have such a sweet (and growing) family is grandbaby #2 on the way? Janie is growing up so fast too.

I have to agree with a lot of your randomness I am just ready for the warm weather to stay.

ALWAYS include a picture of a pregnant girl. Can't get enough of it ;) Such a miracle!

I love chats with my Mom!
