Parents Day Out

Pookie Bear and I got away for a day and stopped by this museum. It was interesting, but the best part was walking around outside and having him pose for pictures. He He!

A Trip to the Dentist

Oh my goodness! I can't believe it's been so long since I last posted. Where has the time gone???? Things have been crazy around here. As many of you know, Pookie Bear lost his job, so I have been working as many hours as possible. God has been so good to us through this time. Our bills are paid, we have food on the table and attitudes are good. We have never felt His love like this before.

Today the kids went to the dentist. I was at work so Pookie sent some pictures to my phone. I couldn't resist putting them on here!

First up is Tootie. Here she is after a pulled tooth, a filling and a cap.

Thirty minutes later it's still numb!

Check out the smile...cracks me up!

Now it's Little Dude's turn for a filling and cap.

Again, 30 minutes later the lip is still numb!

Last, but not least is Twirl Girl.

And, the cool lip!

I wonder if they would have been so willing to pose if they knew I was putting the pictures here?!?!?!

Father's Love Letter

There are times in our lives that we just need a reminder about how much our Father really does love us. This is one of those times for our family.

Fun in the Snow

After breakfast (blueberry french toast - YUMM-O) the kids got bundled up and went outside to play. Here's a few pictures of the activity. Next up, sledding at Hogan's Hill!
Lucy is not amused!
Emily and the Shermanotor!
The kids and Sherman (Shhh...don't tell them they are laying where the dogs go potty!)

The Wig

We bought Tootie a Hannah Montana wig for $1.00 at Wal-mart a few weeks ago. Who would have thought it would be so popular. (All of these pictures were taken on my very popular with the kids cell phone - next post will show you just how popular!)

(this one is just plain weird!)
