Well, Spring is right around the corner. Anybody have Spring fever? Me too!
I think it would be a good idea to let Winter go out with style instead of with a “good riddance” attitude. So, here’s the question. What part of Winter are you going to miss?
Wondering why that is important? If you recognize your favorite parts of Winter soon enough, you will have more opportunity to enjoy Winter as you are focusing on getting in those last minute “missable” moments.
So, go ahead! Give Winter a party and let it end with style! Spring might just slap you in the face before you know it!
Here’s the plan. Write a blog post about your favorite part(s) of Winter and link to this post. For those of you who don’t have a blog, let me know in the comments section below. On March 21 I will post and link to all the entries.
Note: I realize some of you are located further south than me. If it is no longer cold where you live, let us know what you enjoyed about this past Winter or what you enjoy about Winter in general.
At our last grill-out of the summer/fall season, I decided to take pictures of the fire to see how they turned out. What do you think?
Today I learned about a tea party inspired by the Boston tea party. It is called the New American Tea party. Basically the idea is to send a tea bag to several different representatives on April 1. This will ensure that the tea bag is received by April 15, the day of the tea party.
Wondering why anyone would send a tea bag to their representatives? The idea is to let the government “hear” from those who are against the stimulus package and too much government intervention.
Are you willing to send a tea bag to your representatives for this cause? Why or why not? I am genuinely curious.
Please send this to your local representatives and also to:
Office of the Speaker
H-232, US Capitol
Washington DC 20515
Senator Harry Reid
HART SENATE OFFICE BUILDING
Washington DC 20510
Barack Hussein Obama
President of the United States
1600 Pennsylvania Ave NW
Washington DC 20500
Our 24 Hour Van is for sale! Can you believe it!? We outgrew it. Not because of extra children but because of friends we are bringing to church. I guess Beacon has a bus ministry now. Pretty exciting, isn’t it?
Luke and I decided to post our favorite February blog posts tonight. Because I am having a hard time choosing just one (as usual), I am posting two.Which would you have chosen?
Candy and Snow
Ready to POP? Here goes! I will Pick One Pic and post it. What easier way is there to post 1000 words? I just hope I don’t get in trouble for posting this one! 😉
A few days ago we got 6-7 inches of snow. We usually borrow our neighbors’ snow shovel. Because he wasn’t around to ask when I went out to shovel, I decided to use a regular shovel.
It did not take me long to discover that a regular shovel was not intended for snow. Most of the snow stuck to he metal shovel, and what didn’t stick to the shovel didn’t want to land where I wanted it to land.
After working for about 20 minutes, I looked around and realized that it would take me hours to finish at the rate I was going. I decided to go in to warm up. When I walked back out the door, my neighbor asked, “Are you shoveling snow?” Then came the words my cold fingers were glad to hear! He said, “here, use this” and handed me his snow shovel.
Never in my life have I appreciated a snow shovel so much! I went to pick up my first scoop of snow, and the shovel felt like it was gliding! My muscles gave a sigh of relief! And now that Spring is so close, I have about convinced myself to go buy a snow shovel! Hey! Maybe I can get one on clearance in a few weeks!!! 🙂
Here is my most recent picture of all five of my children. This was taken while celebrating Anna’s birthday after Luke said, “Everybody, give Anna a hug!”
Someone gave us a few summer hats, and the girls in the family enjoyed a photo shoot with them. Can you tell we had fun?
