This blog is simply the story about my little life
with my sweet family that the Lord has blessed me with
and the day in, day out things that we do.
It basically is my online diary/photo album of our life.
I'm glad you're here!

It snowed last night!
It is so beautiful!
It's like a winter wonderland!
This is soooo late for snow in these parts!
We just don't get snow that often here in Oregon and when we do it's usually in December or January.
Never at the end of February!
I don't mind though!
I love it!
I think it is so beautiful.
It's funny though....
....because we don't get it very often,
the whole county pretty much stops cold!
We are not used to driving in it!
We get constant messages on the TV and radio about it.
They say that the authorities want us to stay home and only travel if we absolutely have to!
It's really fun because the schools always close!
We all get snow days!!!
It's fun to be all snuggy at home!
And to look outside and see the beautiful white powder everywhere!
I'm thankful to God for the snow.
I love the four seasons that we get to experience here in Oregon!
I went outside to take pictures of the beautiful snow.
I love how the stairs to the garden look.
They're beckoning me!
The grape arbor.
Looking down at the house from the garden.
The blue berries.
Our home.
Our bird friend's home!
The pool!
It's so serene!
It looks like we got about 4 inches, doesn't it!

Even the junky part of our side yard looks pretty all covered in snow!
There's Hayden and Devon playing with Blondie in the snow!
Blondie loves it!
Hayden making snow balls!
Don't you dare throw that at me!
Fun times!
I was walking all around the yard in my pajamas and bathrobe with Eric's work boots! haha!
Thank you God for giving us this beautiful snow!

Bag Lady Store!

I have a group of girlfriends and we love to thrift shop together. We named ourselves the Bag Ladies and BAG stands for Bargains At Goodwill. Well, last week one of the Bag Ladies, Brenda, took all the rest of us to a secret shopping location. When we got there we were soooo excited and started laughing so much. It's a little store called The Bag Ladies Thrift & Gift! Can you believe it???
We said, "We simply must get a picture of all of us in front of the sign!" So I got out my camera and set the timer (which I've only done a handful of times) and it went off ever 3 seconds instead of 10 seconds!
So we got some funny pictures of me running and then standing in line fixing my hair and then...
...we got the perfect shot! We went inside and had a ball. We all found treasures!
After that we went out to lunch and then found some more thrift stores. Brenda found this awesome book and was totally engrossed in reading it! Haha! The Bag Lady War! Perfect!!!!
My Bag Lady buddies!
We had such a fun day!
I am so blessed by these girlfriends. I am thankful for all of them! And I am thankful for our great day today!
