a snow/ice free week in Missouri? I sure do hope so!!! I had a great time in Oklahoma with my family. Time just goes too fast when I am there. I took quite a detour coming home...I thought it would be a shortcut from I-44, but it ended up taking me about an hour longer to get home, and a lot of very dark and very windy roads!! I have never seen so many of those yellow arrow signs in my life! I didn't think I was ever going to get home, but thank goodness, I made it:) I haven't uploaded pictures yet. In fact, I still haven't uploaded pictures from my niece's birthday party in January. I will get to it at some point. I am getting soooooooo excited right now! Bethany is coming to visit from Texas for the weekend. I am taking a personal day on Friday, so we can hang out. We were talking last night, and realized that we haven't seen one another since Memorial Day weekend. That is way too long! Anyways, she is driving in on Thursday, and will hopefully be here when I get off work:) Sooooo excited for this weekend with her! Hope everyone is having a great week!

of layouts I have completed, but never posted. I finally took pics of them. However, the quality is kind of poor, so I apologize for that. The pics on the bottom are from a couple of weeks ago. I looked out the window and there were baby deer all over my yard. By the time I got out my camera, they had scattered a bit. They especially scattered when I opened the door to take pictures. Oh well...at least I finally caught them:) They were really cute. I tried to post this Friday morning, but I was having trouble with blogger. I braved the roads and made it to Oklahoma for a visit. It was a long drive down because of the drive through Branson and Springfield. But after that, it wasn't too bad. I have just been hanging out with my family since I got here. It has been nice. I am looking forward to a yummy lunch here tomorrow. My mom is making roast, mashed potatoes, gravy, hot rolls, green beans, and who knows what else. What I am not looking forward to is the drive home, and another hectic week of playing catch up at school. That is the worst part of snow days...catching up. Oh well, it will all work out...Hope everyone is enjoying their weekend!!!

Again!!! I can't believe this is happening again! Fortunately, I prepared this time. I went to the store last night and got lots of food and things I need around here. Good thing, because I couldn't hardly back my car up the driveway this morning! I decided to move it in case I needed to get it out, and thank goodness I did! There is no way I could get it up to the top of the hill now! With all the snow days we have had, I kind of feel useless. This morning I have swept, mopped, cleaned the bathroom, cleaned the kitchen, and now I am making homemade chicken noodle soup! YUM!!! It smells so good. I have also been reading the book, "Eat, Pray, Love"...really enjoying it too!!! Hope everyone is enjoying their Thursday.

that everyone has a good week........and that we do not have anymore ice or snow:) I promise that this week I will get the pages posted that I made a few weeks ago. I just keep forgetting to take pictures of them until it's dark. They don't come out well without natural light.

are adding up. I think we now have four days to add to the end of our school year. We are making one day up on President's Day already. I have enjoyed these extremely long weekends, but come May...that will be a different story. I do feel for all the people out there who do not have power. I remember last year when I was in that situation, along with so many others. Not something I want to relive. I remember never being so thankful for light switches:) It was terribly miserable. I have been fortunate enough to keep power. I hope everyone else gets theirs back on soon. I am hoping we have school tomorrow. But I guess we will just have to wait and see. I deleted my earlier post for various reasons. I guess you never know how many people read these things. Hope everyone has a great day!

from my weekend in Oklahoma. These are just some of the ones I took. There will be more to post, but I need to do some photo editing first. I really like these though. Kinzley is my new little niece. She is so pretty. Kylan is just a cutie, and check out Shelton's cute little face!!! He was enjoying some taco soup. I really like the one of my Grandpa with Shelton, and my cousin's little girl, Kyndall. When you say smile, she makes that funny face! It was hilarious! I had a good time with my family. I returned here, and had three days of school, then two snow days. So it has been an extended weekend. I wish I could say that I had gotten some things accomplished, however, I can't really say that. There is always tomorrow though, right? I did finish two scrapbook pages tonight. I will take pics of those and post tomorrow or the next day. Hope all my teacher buddies have enjoyed their snow days, and that everyone else is enjoying a nice weekend!!!
