Snow and snuggles

When we got up it was 14 degrees and snowing. 

Clementine wouldn't  stay on her bed. She preferred being next to the Iike heater by my feet. That's my girl. 

Slava's Snow Show and dinner

Wow is all I have to say. This show was so amazing. 

We went to the club afterwards and had a Mardi Gras themed dinner and ate way too much!

Tender heart

Today I watched john Lleyton ride his bike "five driveways down".  As he rode back to me he picked up everyone's trash cans and placed them on their driveways. Then he rings me this leaf shaped like a heart. "Mama since its heart shaped I thought you should have it".  This boy is amazing and one day I will have a hard time sharing him.

When the high is 20 and the temps are supposed to steadily drop all day......the furry child gets to go to work with mom.

Day 5 / 365

John Lleytin started his first official day at his new school. He LOVED it. He's especially into the uniform!

He did break out in a rash about the time I picked him up. Not sure what he ate that triggered this but we will figure it out.

Happy New Year!!!!

I love this pic from 2014

Visit with high school friends

I missed my 20 year reunion. A few friends were coming to NWA for Thanksgivubg and facebook messaged a group of us to meet. So glad they did!!!!

We are all either 40 or will be turning 40 very soon. It seems like yesterday we were at pep rallies and graduation!

Hunting with Greg

Some weekends are great for these two to take off and hunt for a few hours while I get some work done around the house or for the office. Throughout the day, Greg will send me texts with the sweetest pics. 

You have to have a campfire and snacks  ...

Fort Chaffee Christmas Lights

We did Christmas with my parents the weekend before Christmas when my mom was off work. Near my parents house they had a neat light display and winter wonderland set up inside an old building at Fort Chaffee. 

John Lleyton finally agreed to have a picture with Santa. He's sure he is too old for Santa this year. Breaks my heart to hear it. He just has so many questions. Good questions. You have no idea....

I kind of like how this train picture turned out. 

Upstairs there were rooms with different themes... This was vintage Christmas with tinsel on the tree and vintage toys. Some still in original boxes!!!

And then there were some disturbing decorations....elves falling from the stairs....

And the creepiest snowman ever.....

Look a little closer. EEEEK
