Sun and Snow make for a Beautiful Day!

After yesterday's darkness and snow overnight, it was wonderful to wake up this morning to blue skies and sunshine! We did get a bunch more snow overnight, but it's breathtaking outside!!!

Taco Invention....

We love taco's at our house! A friend of mine does "Taco Tuesdays" and I am thinking we should do the same thing! I usually do soft tacos; I just warm them up in a pan. John's mom has always done small corn ones, that she fries up in oil and puts on paper towels. I've tried it a few times, but I can never get them to come out right, so I just don't do it. John decided he wanted to try it, so he made a "drying stand" so that we could have them folded like restaurant taco shells. I think it worked out great! He built it with left over pine at the job!

Let it Snow!!!

Here are some pictures I just took from our front porch.....we've got at least 14 inches out there right now..probably more!!!

Rub a Dub Dub...Who Needs a Tub????

Jacob has totally outgrown his baby bathtub...it seems like ages ago! I have been bathing him, with me, in our spa tub, but when I'm pooped out that seems like such a big production! I have to get in, Daddy has to hand him to me, then Daddy has to come back in later to get him out of the tub so I can get out of the tub....I love taking baths with him but I tried plunking him in the kitchen sink and he LOVED it! He's also been clapping for a while now, and has just started doing the "Queen" wave and I happened to get it on camera! Yippee!
