Good morning Ladies, I hope you are doing well! We are warming up here after getting down to minus 15 F ( minus 26 C ) on Thursday and Friday. It was sooo cold! It is 25f now which will feel great when I step outside . WE got about 5 inches of snow last Saturday into Sunday . Last Saturday evening we went out for a double date with our neighbor Brandon and his Girlfriend Josette ( I heard on the grapevine she might become more than that soon….!) We went to a Mexican restaurant about 15 minutes away and after that went to a brewpub we like where they offer board games , we played apples to apples which is so fun! We got home in time before the snow started. Sunday we were able to get out too Church, attendance was down a bit though.
This week went pretty normal , I am taking it easy as I have a head cold and some coughing . The boys are going to a movie this afternoon with their Great-aunt , they love it as she spoils them! I hope you all had a nice St. Valentines day!

Good morning Ladies and happy Sunday to you! Welcome to February and a step closer to Spring. According to Punxsatawney Phil (breaking news!) Spring is on the way! All I know is that there is always 6 more weeks of Winter in Minnesota ! I have to say though it is an unusual Winter this year , there is plenty of snow on the ground but the temperature right now is 45F . I will take it. Yesterday February 1st was the first day of Spring in Ireland and by mid February the Daffodils are starting to rise from the ground.
As I said in my last post our little guy stayed home from preschool on Monday . We took him to the doctor and turns out he had a sinus infection , he is on medication and doing much better. Our Daughter got a nice surprise Yesterday ( I knew already in advance!) when her Grandparents surprised her with a trip to Las Vegas! ( they will be keeping her away from the casino’s !!) It is more family friendly these days. They leave on Thursday night February 13th and return on the 17th . They plan on taking each Grandchild somewhere as they get older.
Yesterday was a quiet day at home, this morning we went to Church and had a pancake breakfast afterwards, so good! We will watch the superbowl later , I will root for Kansas City as my friend Courtney and her husband Jake are fans and are attending the game!
Good morning Ladies ! I hope you are having a nice day. I was busy Yesterday and did not get to post. Last weekend we watched some football ( congrats to the Kansas city Chiefs Courtney!) on Sunday after Church. We definitely had a relaxing day ! The Monday to Friday routine was pretty normal until Friday when our little guy had to stay home from preschool suffering from the flu. Saturday early was a day of laundry (yay!) And kids play dates., picking some up and dropping some off! On Saturday evening we went to Applebee’s to meet my mother and father-in-law, and my brother-in-law and his wife and kids. They were in the area after attending the boat show. I am still not sure if they are going to purchase! We will see in the months ahead. On Sunday after church our six-year-old went to his friends birthday party at Chuck-E-Cheese. They always have a good time there. Now you are up to date!

Good morning ladies! On this the third weekend of the New Year I am finally writing a new post . I am sorry I did not get to write over the last few weekends I have been having laptop issues. I got a new laptop but did not like it so send it back. My next one is due to arrive on Tuesday so for now I am writing this from my cell phone. The last few weekends have been busy.
On New Year’s Eve we stayed home and had some friends over. They brought their kids and we played a bunch of board games which was so fun. They did not stay to ring in the New Year as it was getting late for the kids. On January 2nd the kids went back to school and everything was back to normal.
Last weekend we visited the kids great-grandparents( my in-laws) the one Great Grandma fell and broke her arm a while after Thanksgiving and we had not got to see her. So we seen her and her husband, and we drove about 10 miles and got to see the other great grandma. It was 8:00 in the evening when we got home but it was a very worthwhile day.
On Monday night during a snowstorm we went to see our daughter sing for her school choir performance. She is 7th grade , and they are getting better all the time! Today we received our new grey sectional couch for the basement! It looks great and finishes off the improvements we made there .

Good morning ladies how are you doing today? I hope you all had a really nice Christmas.
Last weekend was spent pretty much getting ready for Christmas and for going to my in-laws on Christmas Eve. On Christmas Eve morning and the kids woke up the stockings were full! Santa knew they wouldn’t be there on Christmas morning so as is his tradition he stopped by our house a day early. They also had a few presents to open!
At about 3 p.m. we left for the 2-hour Drive. It went really well and there was no need for any bathroom breaks, yay . We got there a little late for Christmas Eve Mass at their local church. We had a nice evening of food and games. There was also more presents to open! On Christmas morning we went to mass for the Nativity of Our Lord Jesus Christ. It was really cute the priest had all the kids come up to the manger area during his homily and explain the birth of Jesus in their terms.
After church more of the extended family started to arrive for dinner. We had some great food and chat and spent a lovely afternoon together. We packed everything up and we’re ready to be on the road again at 7 p.m. We had extra stuff to bring home than what we arrived with! The few days since Christmas have been pretty quiet as there is the flu going around and we don’t want to contaminate others. I think we are getting close to being over it now though!

Good morning ladies! I hope your weekend is off to a great start! Temperatures have started to improve since last week it is 19 degrees Fahrenheit or -7 Celsius. It is a warm-up! By tomorrow it’s supposed to be in the late thirties .
Last Sunday after church that was a Christmas party with a light lunch and the kids got to make over 20 different crafts. They had fun gluing and glittering and pinning on various items!
This week has been busy with last-minute Christmas preparation. The kids finished school yesterday, we went to see our Pre-K son perform in the little Christmas Pageant, it was cute. The kids also brought little gifts for their teachers in appreciation for all they do.
We will leave at around noon on Christmas Eve to go to my in-laws for Christmas . We usually go to Christmas Eve church and then stay over the following day. What are your plans for Christmas?

Good morning ladies ! How are you today? As I type it is -6f or -22c with sun. It is the same minus temps it was last week with an ever increasing blanket of snow forming on the ground . We had a few small snowfalls during the week . At least the sun is shining , I will take that small victory!
Last weekend was pretty quiet for me , with housework and a little shopping. The week up until Friday was pretty uneventful . We went to our local Mexican restaurant on Friday night , taking our daughter’s Friend with us. Saturday Morning there was more housework ( go figure!) In the afternoon we went to the mall to meet the extended family . ( my father -in-law arranged a guys night out at the monster jam truck event at the vikings stadium ) and the Girls hungout at the mall for a few hours . Win win for everyone ! It was close to midnight when we got home after the two groups met up again . Today after Church there is an arts and crafts Christmas party for the kids.
My Christmas decor: as promised to you who asked here are pics of our Christmas decorations !
I hope you enjoyed a look into our home !

Have a fabulous week , Christmas is creeping up on us , Terri xo.
Good morning Ladies ! I am a day late writing this week , I got a little busy yesterday with the kids and household stuff. Last Sunday after Church we surprised the kids by telling them we were going to Great wolf Lodge Waterpark for the day and staying overnight in the hotel! They were very excited , they had Monday off school, an extension of the Thanksgiving weekend. We packed up and arrived there at 3 pm, the room wasn’t ready until 4pm but they wanted to go in the park so badly they changed in the locker rooms . I waited until we got to the room to get into my swimsuit though.
We swam , tubed , slid, paddled for an hour and a half then went to Perkins for dinner . Then it was back until 9pm when the waterpark closes. We came back to the room cleaned up watched some tv then eventually sleep ! The room had two sets of bunkbeds and a queen for us. We used the park again the next morning after having breakfast and had to then check out by 11am. There was a lot of fun had! Tuesday was back to normal for all . The week went by quickly to Friday . We are having a quiet weekend , the kids had some playdates Friday and Saturday , Our Daughter had a sleepover Friday night.
Today after Church our monthly Pancake breakfast takes place. It is also the Feast of the Immaculate Conception of Mary .

Good afternoon ladies! It is the Saturday of Thanksgiving weekend and we survived yet again hosting for our family !On Monday afternoon we both went to the elementary school to see our son play the ukulele in their last session for the year. He likes it and is interested in getting his very own. Tuesday was spent getting the house spick and span ( well more spick and span than usual!) in anticipation for people coming on Thursday.
Tuesday night into Wednesday morning it snowed 5 inches , the kids had the day off anyway which was good. Last minute items were picked up to be ready for the big day. The kids stayed up late watching a movie which helped them sleep in the next morning. We did a bunch of food prep and people started arriving around 10.30 . They had dishes to heat up after driving . There were 16 in total including us 6. It was a lovely time together with good food . We are all thankful for another year together. People left by 6pm and it was a quieter house again ( its never totally quiet here!)
I did not go black Friday shopping . Instead on Friday morning we transformed the house from fall to Christmas decorations, and put up the tree. The kids helped this year in a big way. They were excited to! We baked Christmas cookies trying to start a tradition going forward . They were all decorated in unique ways by the kids. Our neighbor Maddi came over to help also ( she is 6 months younger than our Daughter and her parents split a few years back unfortunately and spends 7 days at each house) We had Lasanga in the evening and maddi and her Dad joined us for it. We got another 4 inches of snow overnight , so it truly is a winter wonderland all before December 1st!
SHOUTOUT!!! This is for Courtney and her Husband Jake who through her blog announced she is pregnant and are expecting their first child in May See her post here congratulations to both of you!
