Good morning Ladies and Happy Easter weekend to you! Yesterday was the day Good Friday when Jesus was crucified to fulfill his earthly journey, he died to save us from our Sins. Tomorrow Easter Sunday Jesus will rise, the tomb will be empty.
Last weekend was fun, a friend Leah and her two boys came to visit from Fargo. Her husband stayed home to accomplish chores and knowing him have a few beers! She got here late Friday night and after getting the kids to bed was ready for a glass of wine and a chat. Saturday was a relaxing day early then in the afternoon went to a community center for swimming. It is only 15 miles from us but the first time we visited. It had two waterslides which were fun. Also a hot tub for the adults which was extremely hot in my opinion. They left Sunday morning for the trip home , the kids loved having the boys here . We usually go to their house in the summer so will look forward to that !
We are hosting Easter this year for the extended family . Looking forward to seeing everyone and the grass is starting to green and grow! Great for a egg hunt.

Good morning Ladies ! I hope your weekend is off to a nice start. Last weekend we spent time outside as it was really nice. We cleaned up our yard of kids toys that had scattered . Also we set up our trampoline for the kids which is a big hit. It is enclosed so they cannot fall off it. The school week started off good , kids went as normal until at midday Wednesday we had s**w again! It was forecast and it snowed so much that school was cancelled on Thursday. It kept falling on and off into Friday midday. We got over 8 inches total! A late storm that hopefully will be it for the year!!
We are entertaining this weekend . A friend from Fargo and her two boys aged 7 and 5 are here ( her husband stayed home to do projects!) until Sunday. They left Fargo at 5pm Friday and got here at 10pm. We will have a fun day , going to a waterpark (indoor of course!) and whatever else we get up to. They leave Sunday morning. Tomorrow is Palm Sunday where Jesus make s his way to Jerusalem on a Donkey and just days later is crucified to fulfill his mission on Earth.

Good morning Ladies ! After having Spring break and our trip to Kansas City It was back to reality on Monday! We had a quiet weekend and pretty much stayed home apart from Church and running to the store. On Monday evening our car( we also have a pick up truck) broke down and had to be towed to the garage! It is the transmission that needs to be rebuilt costing $5000! Luckily it is covered under warranty! Some April fools joke our car pulled! The rest of the week went by uneventfully . Our daughter started indoor practice for softball and another summer of fun!

last week there was a first for my blog in nearly 3 years posting, there was no post for March 23rd created!! (I do apologize) The kids started Spring break on Friday the 22nd and for it we planned a getaway. We went to Kansas city.( It was inspired by Courtney from A Byers guide) We left after all the packing was done on Friday evening at 5:30 and drove for 3 hours to Des Moines , Iowa (there were food and bathroom breaks along the way ) we arrived at the hotel we booked for the night at 9:20 and got settled in . The next morning the kids went swimming in the pool and had great fun as always. They are little fish! We checked out at 11:00 and had lunch at Bennigan’s Irish style Restaurant. We stopped at dunkin donuts for some coffee and took interstate 35 south . It was a pretty drive with rolling hills and nature at its best. Another thing was that there was no snow south of Des Moines , it was a novelty for us! It is a 3 hour drive also from Des Moines to Kansas City and with stops we arrived at our hotel at about 5pm. We stayed at homewood suites by Hilton next to the Kansas City Speedway. This is on the west suburbs of the city.
I will do a part 2 post on our trip later.
The kids are back to school on Monday and before we know it it will be summer! We are planning a low key weekend .

Good morning Ladies!! Happy ST. Patrick’s day to you (Beannachtaína lá Féile Pádraig oraibh!) This is the Gaelic greeting! It is pronounced Bann-ock-tee na law fail-eh paw-rig or-iv! There is my lesson for the day, hehe.
We celebrated our Liam’s 6th birthday yesterday! It was an early celebration , his is not for another week but it worked better for extended family . He is such an active and outdoorsy boy and knows how to get , dirty , or wet when outside! He is his own little character!
We have started getting rain here! the temps are rising and its supposed to reach 60f later this week. I will stop short of saying winter is over because it is only 6 years since we got a foot of snow May 8th! The kids start a week of Spring break on Friday and we are going on a trip for a few days from friday until Tuesday! More on that next week !

Good morning Ladies! I hope your weekend is off to a good start. It is wait and see for us, It is 7:30 am and we are awaiting 6 to 12 inches of snow between now and tomorrow. I am beginning to sound repetitive now I know! The joys of Minnesota! We got above freezing yesterday(33f) for the first time since February 4th!
Last Saturday after posting we all went to a sledding hill close by. There were teething problems with the sleds at first because of the types we have but eventually were able to get speed up. It was good time together in the outdoors!
On wednesday we celebrated the start of Lent with Ash wedneday. It is a day of fasting with no snacks between meals! In the evening we went to church , but had the soup supper before hand where parishoners bring a meatless soup to share. There were 28 in total, I did not have time to prepare a dish myself this year. Fridays in Lent are also a fasting day.
This weekend is low key , I think! I am ok with that and can get stuff done in the house , also family fun time with some games .

Good morning Ladies ! We are finally into March , the month when Spring starts here in The United States but here where I live we are still in the depths of Winter .We had another 3 inches of snow last night . We ended up with a record February snowfall of 39 inches ! I am ready to be done and start seeing signs of Spring but I will have to be Patient!
Last night was family fun night at the kids school where they get to play games , do face painting and just have fun! It is also a time for the parents to socialize and meet in some cases. I had a bereavement in my family last weekend. A second cousin of mine , from My Dad’s generation passed away after suffering a stroke a few years ago. He was the nicest man you could ever meet and so generous. May he rest in the peace of God.
This week we start Lent in our church , where we are encouraged to fast and make sacrafices in solidarity with Jesus Christ when he spent 40 days and 40 nights in the desert fasting.

Hi Ladies! I am late posting today, was doing cooking and housework so it is time to sit for a bit! This past we we hit a record for February snowfall . The old record was 26 inches and we got to 30! We are due even more this weekend with 2-5 inches expected! We don’t know where to put the snow anymore. The kids were off school Monday for Presidents day and then Wednesday for a snow day. There are plenty of snow plows to clear the roads which I am thankful for.
This weekend is relaxing for the most part. Our Church is having a spaghetti dinner tonight and followed by bingo. I have still to win at bingo after playing for 10 years now! Do you ever play bingo?

Good morning Ladies! I hope you had a nice week up to now . How was your Valentines day? Do you like to celebrate it? Ours was a whole family Valentines day with work and school then When the kids got home they brought their little gifts from their classmates. This can get quite messy with packaging and candy everywhere but we got through it and had a nice family dinner . We did pick up a bottle of wine so we could have some after the kids went to bed but it got too late when they all got settled, so maybe tonight !
Sending you all some virtual Roses !!
We have a quiet weekend planned as it is staying cold and we have more snow promised . What are your plans this weekend?

Hello all, how is your weekend going?? I am awake early as usual to get my post out. It is something I look forward to ! We got a lot of snow this week. There were two different snowstorms on Wednesday and again on Thursday night. The kids got Friday off, which they didn’t complain about. the temperature is cold again, at minus 15f today or minus 26c. We are staying indoors for the most part! Last night we were able to get our babysitter and have a few hours out! We went to a local restaurant with good food and drinks. We don’t get the amount of couple time we used to before kids but you gotta take advantage when you can. Our Daughter will be able to babysit her siblings from July , her Birthday!
