Random acts of kindness

A month or so ago as I was standing in the checkout line of a store, a lady behind me had on these beautiful snowflake earrings. I commented how much I liked them, and how pretty they were. At that point she proceeded to take them out, and tell me that she had another pair at home and I should have these. At my shock and amazement, she said "Random acts of kindness". It made my day, and even though the picture does not show how sparkly and pretty they are, I love these and am so happy that she chose to be so kind to me.

Monkeying around

Spencer was invited to a birthday party at Monkey Joe's by a friend at school a week or so ago. Never being there he was hesitant, but ended up having the best time and now wants his birthday party to be there too.

Monkey Joe himself.

What goes up, must come down.

I'm a ghost

My mom, a former hair dresser, cuts all of our hair. Always has, always will who can beat a free hubby however got tired of waiting on grandma and took my boy to a place and decided to actually pay for a cut. It turned out ok, except for the back which was way too long. Enter Grandma to fix it up. She is from the old school, use powder to get the leftover hair clippings off of your back, shoulders etc..... My son has learned this well, and while we were chatting it up, went upstairs to get his own powder.
Big Mistake!
He came downstairs saying "I'm a ghost!"
He was so excited about being all white and had lots of fun with it. As you can see, he was well covered head to toe. We all had a good laugh over it.

Until I walked into my bathroom where he had powdered himself up.........................................................

Fun in the snow

A few weeks ago old man winter finally decided to show everyone who was in charge and dumped about 6 inches of snow on us. That of course lead to clearing off sidewalks, driveways and having fun. Spencer decided to build himself a "snow bed" and have himself covered with a snow blanket. He loved it and was actually quite warm.

Both kids took turns "helping" Dad shovel. They made a HUGE snow mound in front of the mailbox. Then made mountains in the yard and used the dried branches that had fallen off the Christmas tree as flags.

Isn't childhood fun.

After the work comes the fun. Dad pulling the sled in the front yard, and letting it slide clear down the "hill". We had lots of giggles, smiles and family fun.
When it was all said and done, we came in cold and wet. A great time to make hot chocolate and snuggle.

Thanks Old man winter for a great evening.
