Valentines Day...

Valentines Day 2010 began early in the morning for mama - I thought this year we'd do a little less commercial stuff and a lot more home baked/made goodies...
So, I made the boys (and hubby) hand-dipped milk chocolate and white chocolate strawberries...

I made homemade sugar cookies and cut out hearts, then iced them with some red/white and sprinkles...
and finally, used the remaining chocolate melts to dip some pretzels!

The boys each got a tiny gift bag with some Russel Stover chocolates and a little bear with a card, and hubs got his favorite candy in a box w/ a card; little J decided that he wanted to make a homemade card for daddy this morning, so we did that and then presented all of the homemade goodness to daddy as a super special Valentines Day surprise.... and mama got a ONE HOUR MASSAGE GIFT CERTIFICATE at a local Wellness studio!!! I am STOKED!!!

snow fight

the snow is powder'ish (is that a word?), anyway - we just threw it at each other.... big E decided to sit this one out.

below, he's waving and saying "you can't get me!!"

oh.... but I DID get him!!!

a white blanket of lovely

around 5pm yesterday it started to snow, and we ended up with 2-3 inches pretty quickly.

I woke up this morning and had to snap a few quick pics of how the sunlight was dripping onto the fluffy white snow on the trees.

it's so pretty outside!!

been layin low

I've been laying low this past weekend. Had a strange attack of the gall bladder (pretty certain) and spent most of the weekend taking it easy and relaxing when I could. Hopefully this week I'll be back at it.
Oh, Little J decided all by himself to go from sitting to do "all potty deeds" to standing like a big man to go pee!!! Yay!!!! He also got a new bed and changed to it with no problems, and loves it!! Little man's growing too fast.
Random... I am gonna be honest and say, I did not watch the superbowl - neither of the teams really interested me, so eh. NO. I sat on my bed and watched lifetime movies and got occasional updates by looking at twitter or hearing my hubs downstairs. Instead I watched Identity Theft on LMN and related to it a bit. We have had our turn with that recently, and it sucks.
Well, that was a little random!!! Sorry about that! I just wanted to say HI to all my bloggy friends out there!!

this morning

The above photo was taken at 7:05am this morning.

The below photo taken at 7:15am this morning.... where's my sunshine today???

Oddly, I feel about the same, I woke up and for a moment I thought "ok, I feel fine", and then wham - back to "blah, pain, and anxiety." I'm getting pretty tired of it.... But the sun was GORGEOUS when I woke!!
