I'm Still Alive...

I could tell you lots of excuses, but basically I've just been busy and life has taken priority to blogging.  
February is dragging on and I am really tired of winter, never thought I would say that, but I'm done with the snow and I need some warm weather and green grass.

So here is what has happened in the last month and half... LOTS... with one Big surprise!

Hubby and I celebrated our 21st Anniversary on January 16th.  He took me to a fancy restaurant in Portland....
 Me and my love...
Cameron and Kellsea ELOPED!!! on January 19th!!!  I have a 20yr old MARRIED Marine for a son!! And I'm now a mother-in-law, wow!!  Needless to say, we will not be going out to California in April now, but we will be flying them both home to Maine in May for a honeymoon.

Mason and I have been going to story time at the library on Tuesday mornings... he loves it!
I cut layers in my hair... all by myself  :)

Made Valentines for Sarah's Valentine swap...

Had lots and lots of this....

We have had 4 or 5 snowdays from school.

Made the February bulletin board for school....

Mason turned 4 on February 8th!!! Holy smokes, my baby is a preschooler!!!

Becca went to the high school's winter formal. She asked a boy and he said YES!!  Unfortunately my camera flaked out and lost the pics of them together and this one of her is not the best quality.  She had a fantastic time.

 Made a Valentine box for my 2nd grader....

Trekked up to the local park and sledded....

 Ya, that is me...

Samantha turned 19 on February 18th!!  All my babies are getting so big.

And we woke up to such beauty this morning....

Didn't like shoveling is last night, but it sure is nice to look at now...

And look at that sky!

So that is it in a nutshell.  Some other things going on too, but I will save those for later.

Have a wonderful day,
