We are still here!!!!!!!!!!!!! It has been forever since I have posted anything. I am sorry for this. We had a very hectic fall & winter. Things are looking up, as they say, and I am hopeful that I will be able to better stay on top of my blog in 2009.

I am looking forward to the warmup coming in the weather. I will be glad when all the snow & ice is melted. Of course, then we will have to tend with mud. I guess that is just part of living though.

Boating season is getting closer & we all can't wait! Everyday when I see the pontoon; I think of being out on the lake.

The boys are all doing well. I know they will enjoy the warmer days so they can play out longer. Here is an updated picture of them.

I will try & check in more often.

We Are Doing Well

We have been very busy but doing well overall. We had a beautiful weekend celebrating Father's Day with hubby/daddy. We enjoyed a few boat rides & was able to finally just relax quite a bit for a change. We did have a nasty storm move in Sunday night that left us without power for over 12 hours. No TV or internet access for about 2o hours. I am certainly glad I didn't live in the pioneer days:P

Here are a few pictures of the boys from the weekend.

It has been a very busy spring! Family members have been sick requiring some of my time to take them to doctors appts. & such. Work has been extremely busy as well. Some weeks have had appts. scheduled every day & many in one day....whew! Glad that all has finally slowed down.

I got a Wii for Mother's Day from Gary & the boys. Now that is a very interactive & fun gaming system. You can definitely get a workout especially with the boxing game that comes with it. I have purchased a few games & am having a great time playing them with my nephews.
Hershey turned 3 on May 9th. He got a couple of toys & of course the standard pumpkin muffins that I make for each of their birthdays. They also got a special dinner that night of chicken & rice. Here are a couple of pictures of Hershey on his birthday.

We put in the pontoon boat & fishing boat this last weekend. It was nice to get away for a couple of days. The boys were very excited about being able to pontoon again. Here are a few pictures of the boys enjoying their first ride of the year.

Happy April Fool's Day!

Well I must say I don't get into April Fool's Day much. Just another day anymore. Now when I was a kid I probably would do a few things albeit stupid things:P Our local paper used to post a story that would end up being an april fool's day joke but I don't believe they have done that in awhile.

Since my last post our little Mack has turned 1 year old. He got a few toys & a pumpkin muffin for his birthday party. Here are a few pictures of our baby.

Also Tucker the little foster boy we had a couple of weeks ago has settled in nicely to his new home. That makes me feel good that we helped him find a loving home to grow up in.

We Have A Visitor

We have a visitor. We are fostering a cocker spainel boy. He is such a sweetheart. He arrived yesterday. My DH made a phone call & he already has a new forever home. He will be going there tomorrow. In the couple of days we will have had him he has adjusted very well. I am thrilled with his new mom & know he will be very well loved. My boys have enjoyed having him & I think he has enjoyed being around them. He loves to play with them. Here are some pictures of him. Also I have included some pics of him with the boys.

Busy, Busy, Busy

Now that the taxes are at the accountants I have been trying to catch up on other things around the house. We are doing some improvements to the house this year. It's amazing how time consuming these sort of things can be.

I am ready for spring to get here! I have had enough snow...actually IMO too much.....& am very ready for warmer weather. I am looking forward to the sun shining! This week I did hear & see some birds singing & that was nice to hear. I saw my first robin of the year last week & that always puts me in a good mood!

Here is a recent picture of the boys just chillin'. They are all doing quite well.

I am so excited to report I should now have a bit more time on my hands! I now have the 2007 completely wrapped up as well as the 2007 taxes ready to go to the accountant! It has taken me forever this year it seems! Everything is filed away from last year finally!

We are doing well. We are all ready for spring! Saw my first robin today & that put a smile on my face! I think this is the earliest I have seen one. I am ready for the snow to go away, not that we have much, the temperatures to warm up, the flowers to bloom, & the trees to get leaves.

I don't think we have had a bad winter per se. I certainly remember much worse winters. But IMO a winter is still long. I know before long though that it is going to get warmer & we will be able to enjoy boating once again.
