the past few days

Sky is so funny, the past few days he will say things like "mama wrestle wrestle in 2 mins"  when its 2 hours, or "mama wait...  wait for me"  or "mama you alright?" , "mamas happy"  he also tried to talk to his brother Chandler last night, "chandler you there now?"  of course Chandler moved in with his mom so he wasnt there.  But I reassured him it was ok.  He has a girlfriend it is Monis best friend, he just loves his Kenzi.  And the big one "mama dada buy that"  I hear that one 30 times a day at least.  He is such a great kid and he is talking so well, Im proud of my baby bear and love him with all my heart.

A Poem from Sara

Don’t Quit
When things go wrong, as they sometimes will,
When the road you're trudging seems all uphill,
When the funds are low and the debts are high,
And you want to smile, but you have to sigh,
When care is pressing you down a bit,
Rest, if you must, but don't you quit.
Life is queer with its twists and turns,
As every one of us sometimes learns,
And many a failure turns about,
When he might have won had he stuck it out;
Don't give up though the pace seems slow--
You may succeed with another blow.
Often the goal is nearer than,
It seems to a faint and faltering man,
Often the struggler has given up,
When he might have captured the victor's cup,
And he learned too late when the night slipped down,
How close he was to the golden crown.
Success is failure turned inside out--
The silver tint of the clouds of doubt,
And you never can tell how close you are,
It may be near when it seems so far,
So stick to the fight when you're hardest hit--
It's when things seem worst that you must not quit.

Didnt the groundhog see his shadow?

I thought an early spring was on its way not a late winter. All this cold and snow is unreal, we have more then a foot on the ground and its snowing today.

yep 10"
my favorite thing about snow, i love how it sits on the trees
Moni building her brother a snowman
almost done
finished, it was taller then me, and Im 5'4"


so last night it started to snow, by 9:00 we had a good 3 to 4 inches, so Moni and I watched the news, the weather man had said a trace to 3" for where we live over night, we both just chuckled, because we had more then that already.

We went to bed and I got up at 4:00 to check for school closings, and sure enough we had tuns of snow, and no school. As of right now we have 10 inches and they are calling for 6 more inches today and up to 6 more inches tonight, so if they are right, we could be looking at almost 2 feet of snow in the next 24 hours.

Ill post pictures later, I cant get to my picture file right now.

Moni is out in it building her brother a HUGE snowman by the game room window, Sky is going to love it! he is like me, its pretty but too cold, we like to watch from inside!!!!

out for a drive (well sort of)

well not me, but Sky has been up and driving, an driving very well, well enough that this spring Im thinking when we go places, we will be taking his power chair, just got to get a ramp for the van. And he is so funny, when he sees my laptop he always wants to watch this one Spongebob video on youtube, even though Ive shown him he can watch it on his Ipad, he likes to watch it at the table I guess, because he was all smiles.
