We were in Omaha, Nebraska last weekend to celebrate my mom's 6oth birthday. Happy Birthday Mom!!

It was a very short trip out there and back, but the kids had a great time. We went swimming and mini golfing, and had some great food and cupcakes. As we were leaving on Sunday Alex very seriously asked me, "Mom, can we bring Grandma home with us?"  Aww...Very sweet stuff!

Never Ending Winter

We woke up to more snow on Wednesday morning, and after having a 50 degree day on Monday I was not thrilled with the idea of more snow. The forecasts for Wednesday were all over the place, with snow accumulation expected anywhere from 4 to over 10 inches!  I think we probably ended up with around 5 or 6 inches, but as you can see it was very heavy snow with maybe some ice in there too. School was canceled due to power outages...I was ready to cry. Its not that I don't like my kids, and I love having a day off to do nothing, but it is getting old. Every week except one this year I've either had a kid home sick or a snow day, and some weeks, like this one, both! Please go away winter and bring me some warm weather and sunshine!!
