Learning Projects

We are all doing well and enjoying warmer weather, but it's still colder than normal. We are all getting anxious to meet " Cosmo". He is due in just three weeks. Hopefully sooner! (:

The girls had fun decorating Valentine cookies

Rissa enjoyed eating the icing and sprinkles off the cookies

Our future 'musician'?

The girls had fun playing ball with Daddy. Amber surprised us with her hitting abilities! She put it over Daddy's head more than once.

Jenny did good trying

Enjoying a warm day. Bet y'all can't go barefoot! (:

Must be a girl thing

Today our project was planting our garden!

We now can look forward to peas, green beans, lima beans, lettuce, sweet corn, cucumbers, watermelons, potatoes, onions, and when it gets warmer, tomatoes, peppers and cantaloupe.

A Sweet Song

A song for all you Daddies who have little girls that are growing up too fast.

Weekend of Visitors and Snow

We had a great weekend with Chad, Becky and Trista! They were here Friday-Tuesday morning. The girls had a great time getting to know their little cousin better, I think Rissa finally likes her!
David once again took advantage of having help and tackled a long needing done job. All of us girls decided to do some re-sale shopping on Monday and were successful in finding some bargains.

They surprised the girls and brought an ice chest full of some Pa snow to build a snowman. We were going to be the only people on the block with a snowman. It ended up they brought us more than an ice chest full! I think they brought a whole storm of snow!

"Getting practice"

Rissa's two new best friends. She really took a liking to Chad, his name was the first thing she would say every morning. She still will ask about him sometimes.

I hope Trista enjoyed all her entertainment as much as it was enjoyed giving it to her!

David's weekend project; installing garage doors

A job well done!

I had a hard time believing that all the fuss about a snow storm coming was actually going to happen! We were amused at people needing to go for "milk and bread before this blizzard" and schools dismissing before a single snowflake, but it did really happen!

Amber wondering if she was really seeing snowflakes! (the camera did not pick them up) She reminded me more than once that I told her it never snows in South Carolina! I guess I should have said it is not supposed to!

Still snowing

They had fun playing in it, but Rissa did not like the snow.

We ended up with about 4 inches. Small compared to the North, but the most in 30 years for here!

Wintertime Blues

I think we all are getting spring fever! Although I am sure our winter time blues cannot be as bad as you Northerners! You get snow and we get rain, lots of rain. I wish it would save some for the hot Summer months. Maybe then we would not have to water everything every other day!
We are all doing well. I have been doing better as long as I don't push myself too much.
We are looking forward to a visit this weekend from Chad and Becky and Trista!


Getting two things done at once (:
