March Snow Storm

We went outside today to enjoy this crazy March snow storm that hit yesterday.
I took this picture this at about 4pm, the eyes, nose, mouth, and one arm have fallen...and FROSTY is the only white snow left in our front yard! It melted already!!!!
So proud!

New beginning...

Brody's last day of "In home daycare" was today. Mrs. Shan & all of his friends will be missed. Brody loved going to Mrs. Shan's every Tuesday and Thursday! He has been going to her house since he was 3 months old!!! Now at almost 3 YEARS old....he's heading to PRESCHOOL! Shan said I didn't give her enough notice that I was wanting a picture of her and the kids, so I got the 4 older kids together for a pic. Here's Morgan, Josh, Brody, and Addison.
Wish Brody luck at adapting to an actual classroom setting and meeting new friends! And pray for his Mommy and Daddy!

There's just something about a sleeping child. I just adore this picture! This was a few days ago when my dad came to visit and Brody spent the whole day outside with "Crappa" and Daddy building his new swingset! No nap, sunburned, and just plain dirty.....needless to say he crashed at bedtime.

We had some visitors stay with us this past weekend and since the weather was warmer we played outside a lot and Brody got to show off his baseball skills. Thanks Grandpa and Grandma for staying with us. We had fun!

GG and Grandpa Larry got Brody this rocket launcher for Valentine's Day and this is Brody's favorite toy right now.Here's GG giving it a try!

Brody and Grandpa Larry aiming for the car!
We also have some other news. Brody will be starting PRESCHOOL the first of April. He has been going to an "In Home Daycare" on the days that I work....but starting in April he will be going to an actual classroom with 2 teachers and 20 kids! Exciting....but we're a little nervous. We went and toured the school last week and Brody seemed really excited to visit all of the classrooms and see all the kids! Patrick and I will even get to go to parent/teacher conferences!!! Our little boy is growing up! Wish us luck.

Carpe Diem

On this day, 6 years ago, we lost someone very dear to our hearts. We miss him everyday! We wish he would have had a chance to meet Brody. We're pretty darn sure he would have been one of Brody's favorite "uncles!" Brian was Pat's college roommate and one of his best friends.
We miss you, Brian! Carpe Diem...
