She's praying for a teddy bear for Christmas. 
"Teddy Bears are cuddly..."
"Run, run, Rudolph Santas gotta make it to town..."
Just a picture of a cute face!

a little Christmas shopping

Since we are getting so many advertisements from stores for the holiday shopping, I told Jayleigh that they are wish books.  She spends lots of time searching the pages of the ads looking at all the toys.
 She's pretty zoned in on looking at everything!!
 carefully turning the pages!
 Her face is dirty from eating a cherry flavored candy cane!!
 She is pointing to a "dog" that she already has 2 of!! 
Christmas, through the eyes of a child!!!

Fond Memories

On days when Mom made homemade bread, she would save some of the dough for fresh scones.  While I don't make homemade bread, I do make dough for scones.  Looks good, huh?
I'm grateful for the memories...

Winter has arrived. October 6th, 2011

It's been snowing here since about 9:30, and now it's sticking to the roads, the grass, the trees, the rooftops, etc.  My sons are excited cuz that means snow in the mountains. 
About 11:00 this morning, Tyler and I heard a very loud crash.  We knew it was a tree, but couldn't see which one. Tyler found it, in the backyard of our neighbors house.  It's a HUGE tree, and one very big branch of it fell from the weight of the snow, and took out our fence...what a start to winter, huh?

the simple things

Jayleigh went outside to learn how to jumprope, after a few minutes she comes running in and gives me this little flower.  She found it and wanted me to have it.  A quick kiss and she was off. 
Wow, the simple things are pretty awesome.
