About Me

"I don't want to drive up to the pearly gates in a shiny sports car, wearing beautifully, tailored clothes, my hair expertly coiffed, and with long, perfectly manicured fingernails. I want to drive up in a station wagon that has mud on the wheels from taking kids to scout camp. I want to be there with a smudge of peanut butter on my shirt from making sandwiches for a sick neighbors children. I want to be there with a little dirt under my fingernails from helping to weed someone's garden. I want to be there with children's sticky kisses on my cheeks and the tears of a friend on my shoulder. I want the Lord to know I was really here and that I really lived."

Fun in the Snow!

Now that it is no longer in the negatives outside, I decided that the "cagey" kids needed a break from the stuffy indoors! We bundled up and played for about 20 minutes in the snow. Our neighbor down the road came a couple days ago and "plowed" our yard for us. He left a very impressive mountain of snow to play on.

Doggy kisses - Emmaline is just the right height!Emma really didn't want to come in!
But we had snacks and hot cocoa waiting...
Emma had to dip her cookie... what a fun afternoon!
