Reading is fun.

Mia passed seven pages in her speedy reader last night.
She is now on page 60. I had to bribe her with Wendy's for dinner but she did it and it only took just over 1/2 hour.
I'm so proud of her. It takes alot for me to get her to do her speedy reader at home.

This is a picture of Mia's first day of school. Isn't she cute. lol.

Museum trip 12-31-08

This post is to see how pics turn out on my post. LOL.

Anyway, We took the kids to the Museum of Science and Industry on New Years Eve (free day) and we had a good time. We only spent 5.oo for coat holding and later left to eat lunch out side of the Museum (cheaper that way).

Cold Weather!

Boy is it cold today. It's the first day since 1996 that it will be below zero all day long. Today I am so thankful for the warm house, car, coats, boots, and anything that will keep me from freezing.

I want to post some pics on here soon but I'm still new at this blogging thing. So far I'm enjoying it. I will do a practice blog for pics and later add some new pics if I can.

Weekends over.

This past weekend was a great weekend. We had alot of snow on Friday night and Saturday morning. I put the girls snow suites on and we headed out doors. Even daddy (Brian) joined us. We tried to make a snow man but the snow was still too soft. We still had a good time by making snow angels and throwing snowballs. Brian made snowballs for the girls and they all ganged up on me and threw them at me. No fair I say but what can I do but run. LOL.

On a sad note. We found out last week that starting this week Brian's job is cutting hours and they will no longer be working on Friday's for who knows how long. We are going to be cutting and trimming in so many areas that I can't even imagine. I have been trying to find a part time job for either my hubby or me in the evenings. Every little bit will help.

Just for fun.

I don't really blog but since everyone else is doing it, I guess I'd try it. Things in this part of the woods is good.
Brian has been using these winter months to fix and paint his motor-cycle. A friend of ours has a shop that he's been able to use. I'm happy for him. He really likes his bike and that's something special for him.

Mia is in school and on page 35 of her speedy-reader. Sometimes she doesn't want to read and other times it's like can I time you know that you are reading. LOL. She loves to sing. I try to teach her the right keys and how to sing but she doesn't want to hear it. She's always singing.

Alana is learning so much at the daycare. She comes home sayin all kinds of things. Like yesterday I found a New Testament on the floor and I told her "Here's your Bible" and then she started saying things like "The Bible is the word of God and every word is true" I love that.

Lydia is growing and a joy to have around. She loves to copy her big sisters. What am I in for.

I better get going. It's snowing out and I have to go pick Mia up from school. I don't want to rush.
