Good morning Ladies! Happy Groundhog day to you. My prediction is there will be 6 more weeks of winter. There always is in Minnesota! We just came through the coldest week I have experienced since moving here! On Monday we had 5 to 6 inches of snow and the schools called Sunday night to cancel school. Also because of the polar vortex they were off Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday giving them a 6 day weekend. They did have to do some assignments that were e-mailed to us . It was just too cold to go to school. We had two days in a row of minus 27 f (minus 32c) and windchills of -54f (-47c) I hope it will not get that cold again this winter.
We are having a quiet weekend , tomorrow is the superbowl in Atlanta with New England taking on the Los Angels rams. Are you going to watch?

Good morning Ladies ! Just like last week it is cold in Minnesota again(surprise!) Today it is minus 4 f (minus 22c) which will feel balmy compared to the projected HIGH TEMP of -15f on Wednesday with the low being -25f (-31c) I have not seen cold like this since moving to Minnesota. The schools are project to be off Tuesday and Wednesday which is a good idea!
Last weekend we had fun with our friends on Saturday swimming at a local municipal community center. It was a little stressful changing as there was only one stall per family so it took a while but we got through it. Then it was back to their house and we made our homemade pizza’s and the kids all played . On Sunday we had Church and then it was football in the evening. We watched the New England and Kansas City game . It was very close with the patriots just managing to win in the end. I feel for my blogging friend Courtney Her husband is a big Kansas city fan and if they won were going to go to the Superbowl! We had our regular Monday to Friday week and then last night we all went to Outback steakhouse. Before kids as a young(er!) man and woman we went there quite regular! Our city is having a community expo Today with all the businesses and Organisations turning out. We might stroll over and check it out.

Good morning Ladies! It is a chilly start today in Minnesota minus 1 degrees or minus 18 c !! I am staying indoors! We had a few inches of snow yesterday also but it was not too bad. Last weekend was pretty quiet, we took down our tree from Christmas but left our up winter theme . On Sunday I was coordinating coffee and donuts for after the 8am and 10.30am masses(services) I always enjoy doing this and is a good way to meet new people. Yesterday was my Mothers Birthday . It would be nice to make the trip sometime to spend with her but it is harder to go there in January! We are due to meet up with friends later and go swimming at a pool near them . The kids will like that. They have 2 boys the same age as our middle 2 . They also have a gorgeous new daughter Lila (4 months) After swimming we are going back to their house to make homemade pizza’s That should be fun.

Good morning Ladies! I am awake extra early for a Saturday , our daughter attended chillfest with her church class last night . They left our Church at 7.30 pm and went to a high school 30 miles away that is christian and had mass (service) . There was also a chance to go to the adoration chapel to spend time with God . Also there was swimming, skating, inflatable obstacle course, nine square in the air (dont ask!) lasertag, dodgeball , escape room, photo booth and karaoke! It went all night and they arrived back at 6am this morning . I picked her up and the excitement was drained out of her because they are tired, but sais she would do it again, she has the opportunity to go for 2 more years. She is sleeping now!
We are planning on taking down the Christmas decorations this weekend, the tree looks so pretty still, I don’t want to! Last Sunday the 6th was little Christmas the 12th day of Christmas when traditionally the season officially ends but we are a week late!

Good morning Ladies and welcome to 2019!! It is back to normal now after the Christmas season and everything involved in it. We had a nice relaxing weekend last week , then on new years eve we had friends visit along with their 2 Girls . Add to that our daughter had 3 friends staying , it was a lot of fun and noise! We had appetisers and drinks and desserts. We played board games and our friends left before midnight, 10pm. We put the kids down and I layed with our little guy as he likes someone to help him fall asleep ! So it was 12.20 am when I woke as I fell asleep too, so didn’t ring in the new year , but got my new years kiss afterwards!
On New years day we had church and a champagne brunch after the mass with egg bakes provided . It was fun . We then went to visit friends in their new house , an hour away from us. They also have a 5 month old baby , Lila , so cute! close to their house was this snow sculpture created and donations taken for charity , it is a snail, I heard there were hundreds of hours work put into it by 3 brothers Then it was back to routine Wednesday but it was a short week. How was your new years?

Hello Ladies! I hope you all had a lovely Christmas . Ours was very nice, we went to the in-laws on Christmas eve, we were not there in time for Church so went on Christmas morning instead . We did gift exchange between family members and the kids got so much stuff! It is easy to see they are loved. Then it was time for bed because santa still had to come . When they awoke on Christmas morning the man in red did not dissapoint and he had dropped off a bunch more toys ! The day was relaxing and we stayed over a second night . We returned home on the 26th in the afternoon.

Good morning Ladies! We are edging so much closer to Christmas day! I am excited to have Monday here as we go to My in-laws in the afternoon, go to Church for the celebration of the birth of the Baby Jesus , and have dinner and family gift exchange! The kids are so excited for Christmas but we have to keep them grounded as parents and remind them of the true meaning of the season.
I still have some last minute shopping (gasp! I know!) to do today . I am also going to the hair salon today, and maybe later we will get in the car and look at all the outdoor neighborhood lights. Some people are so creative , we might get ideas for next year!

Good morning Ladies, how are you today? The days are creeping on towards Christmas and the excitement builds. Today our Church celebrates the feast of the Immaculate conception , when Mary consented to be the mother of the savior Jesus Christ. I found this fun Calendar below!
We had 6 inches of snow last Saturday into Sunday so the kids enjoyed their time playing in it. Today it is 7 f or -14c so a little chilly. Tomorrow I get to host Coffee and donuts at our Church. It is a ministry I love doing and it creates friendship for the people who attend.
