Happy Wordless/Wordful Wednesday!!

Tuesday, December 29, 2009
**Playing another round of Uno with my son....**
I am off on a vacation day today! I took Monday and Wednesday off this week ( and we are closed Friday) so I get to spend a few days with my ever so darling munchkins. Yea... its been F.U.N. (not)
They are whiny, bored and lazy.
They are kids. And we just spent umteen hundreds of dollars on Christmas BUT alas.... they dont understand the concept of money ....
Monday we shopped. With our gift cards. All of them ( except for teen.. who wants to be dropped off at the mall today for "alone time" with a friend to browse and shop in peace... who wouldnt want that?) and so today brings... little money, more bored whining and who knows what else.
A trip to the grocery store( oh joy) for things for New Years Eve dinner ( I make chinese food)

Here's to your Wednesday... may it be a joyful as mine is...

Our family, done on slate... custom made. Its hard to see from this angle but my son has a football near him,Jocelyn has a microphone ( she's a singer) and Ky has a cell phone & iPod... our snowmobile is there off to the side... such a fun piece of my Holiday Decor...
My Nana made these... one each to represent my babies...

My Holiday Garland that I drape over the banister... this has held up for 3 years now.. might have to get some new stuff next year....

I ♥ Faces ~ Animals

Monday, December 14, 2009
This week over at I Faces the challenge is PETS ( or animals)

I have posted both my dogs before... this week... something different.
Saturday we went to the Ecotarium in Worcester and went on a train for a rendition of the Polar Express... this was called The Polar Bear Express.
We got to listen to the story The Polar Express... then went on a train ride up to see Kenda, the oldest living Polar Bear in captivity. We then took the train back to the building where we had hot chocolate & cookies. It was so fun! ( but cold!)

WW Wednesday~ 11/25

Wednesday, November 25, 2009
Happy Wednesday everyone!!!
Its time again for Wordful/Wordless Wednesday!
I have been so busy this week that I havent really even taken my camera out.... so this one was taken last week. I chose to post this photo today because Jocelyn is in Maine today... she will be staying with my Dad and Step Mom for Thanksgiving. This is a first for us... I always have my children with me for all the holidays BUT she was invited and gets to spend so little time with them that she really wanted to go so we said OK... We will miss her smiling face for the next 5 days though. She will be home Sunday!
Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!!

You Capture~ Sunset/Sunrise

Wednesday, November 18, 2009
The challenge over at Beth's this week: SUNRISE/SUNSET
I kinda cheated this week because I was working all week until after 5pm and here the sun sets so early now, I just couldnt capture it. Plus, getting over the H1N1, we havent been getting up super early either so... this is a shot I took a few weeks ago while watching my sons Football Scrimmage. I always have my camera with me to take tons of shots of the boys but this sunset was too gorgeous to pass up! No editing done at all... Enjoy!
