Woke up to snow this morning (Thursday). Weatherman had been predicting this, so it wasn’t a big surprise (yes we have our milk and bread already). But the weirdest thing, is that just 3 days ago (Monday) we were enjoying 70+ degree weather! So, we go from short sleeves, hiking along the creek Dad teaching about erosion .

To long sleeves, coats and snowball fights 01-18-07_1018.jpg all in less than a week! But at least we’re not getting an ice storm; even though we have the generator now. I guess buying the generator was the preventative of all the weather that causes power outage. Well worth it!!

Until next time…..

Checking out Racoon tracks

Hey all – just had to share this. I was reading the headlines this morning, and saw the horrible winter weather heading for the northeast. Not to rub anyone’s nose in it or anything, but it was over 70 degrees here yesterday. It was so nice we decided to go for a hike in the woods across the street, and find this waterfall that a friend of mine told me about. He grew up on this street, and bought a house out here a few years ago because he loved the area so much. Well, as you can see we found the waterfall. Was a really cool spot, there’s a log home up above the waterfall that’s for sale too. WIshful thinking; the owners are asking a quarter million for it…. if only…. oh well. Hope you enjoyed your MLK day, we sure did.
Until next time…..

Bye Bye training wheels

Wow, they’re growing up fast! Today being SUCH a nice day (70 something and sunny) that after a trip to Triad Park, we took everyone down to the church parking lot for the twin’s first try at riding with no training wheels. Went great, only a couple minor spills, and they caught on really quick! Then we had a grand “chucking of the training wheels” ceremony. Hannah had a great time racing her brothers; she still had the advantage of her training wheels and didn’t have to think about balancing quite as much. ‘Course Dood has a powered vehicle, didn’t go quite as fast as his brothers, but was a lot more stable. All in all had a blast today!

Until next time…..

Doctor, Doctor give me the news…….

Yeah, not the greatest song, but a fitting title for this week!
Monday – Happy New Year, our insurance deductible starts over again at the beginning of the year, so of course:
Tuesday, Little Matt had an appointment with the urologist; we suspected he may have developed either another hydrocele, or possibly a hernia. After a thorough checkout, turns out he’s fine, nothing to worry about ; doesn’t need another surgery.
Wednesday Hannah had her 5 year checkup, just a normal doctor’s visit, plus a couple shots. Nothing major, except for the fact the doctor spent a looooonnnggg time listening to her chest. Turns out the doc heard a heart murmer . Immediately scheduled an ECG at Brenner Children’s Hospital, and she managed to get an appointment the very next day.
Thursday Hannah went in for her ECG. Besides being scared to death of what was going on, and being very uncomfortable, she was a real trooper. Watched 101 Dalmations thru the whole thing. Turns out all is fine, as the Pediatrician put it, her heart “whistles while it works”, nothing to worry about, but we wanted to be sure.
Friday Happy Friday!

That’s how our week’s been – how ’bout yours?

Until next time…..
