Party Time

Yesterday the kids and I had a fun filled day in Roanoke.  We went to Trapper and Kaylee's birthday party that was at he Mill Mountain Zoo.  I didn't even know that there was a zoo in Roanoke.  We drove over and spent a few hours walking around the zoo and of course pizza, cake and presents!

On our way to the party....Madison, Kaylee and Alley

 Carli always loves having her picture taken....NOT!  But hey...I got one anyway.
 a few of the girls walking together!
 The group at the tiger!
The party as we were leaving the zoo.  I think they all had a great time!

I have been working on some knitting and scrapbooking.  I am trying to get caught up on my project life weeks.  I am a few weeks behind but am working on it!
My knitting I am working on a few hitchhiker...

and my May 2014 Mystery Socks.
I am using the after thought heel so that is why there is a pink stripe of yarn on the one side!

Easter 2014

We had a wonderful Easter.

The girls and I spent the morning at Harbor of Hope Church. They are part of a Youth Group there and each took part in the drama.  Below is Carli's part.  She was one set of the white hands. I had never seen anything like this before.  It was pretty amazing!

The group of youth that Harbor Of Hope.  A great group of kids!

After church we headed out to the land and enjoyed a  cookout as well as the nice weather and the peacefulness of being out their.  We own 20 acres so when we are out there, we don't hear traffic or neighbors or really anything.  Only nature.

Me with my sweetie...and of course or princess, Sadie, who always has to be sitting on one of our laps!  As you can see she loves Shawn!

And the girls and their dad!  As you can see the oldest is just thrilled with getting her picture taken! HEHEH!  Oh, well! was a fun and relaxing day!

Catching up...

I realize that it has been over a month since I posted. I am not much for blogging lately and I feel about about that. I know I have a few followers and I am sorry that I haven't been keeping up. But...I have been doing things I love, spending with my hubster & my kiddos. Here they are.....
This is my kids today. We spent the day with my friend Jen and her daughter Kaylee.  We went shopping and had dinner. was a really good time. Here the kids are reluctantly getting their picture taken in some of their new digs!  Hey...their mama wanted some pictures.

I have been working on a little scrapbooking/project life!  I try to keep up with my project life within a few weeks.  I haven't been doing much traditional scrapbooking though!

As in the last few posts I have been been doing quite bit more knitting lately.  It just seems to be what I am enjoying and it really seems to help me relax.  I really do enjoy it!  I have finished a pair of socks and I am working on a shawl now.
These are the socks I finished at the end of March. I really like how they turned out!

And now I am working on my Hitchhiker Shawl..
I think it is coming along. I  didn't work on it much this week, but hoping to get some work done on it this weekend!

Mom's Socks

It's been a fun filled weekend. The weather was beautiful this weekend. I think it was in the 60's.  We spent all day Saturday out at the land.  Had our first bonfire, cookout, and S'more fest!  It was fun!  Of course...the S'mores were the best!

On to crafting....I did get some a few of my project life pages done.   I seem to be better keeping up using the project life.    I am still behind, but just ordered pictures to catch me up through this week!  So hopefully I will be getting caught up!

And finally,  my finished socks for February 2014. My goal is to knit 12 pairs, one pair a month for 2014.  So far I am keeping up. I got January and February done and now I am onto March.  But these are my February socks. I made them for my mom since I really hadn't knit her anything yet.
I was very excited to here that they fit her.  she called me the day she got them and sounded very happy so I think she liked them.  Well, I hope she did anyway!  

That is pretty much for me this week.  The only other thing is I am starting again with my weight loss. I have ordered 21 day fix and am hoping that gets me back on track.  I have stopped drinking soda.  Today is day 5 with no soda.  For me, that is a really feat!  I am just waiting for my challenge package to get here then I can get started with my weight loss again. I have done good eating wise as well this week but the exercise I am sure will help!

Snow, Snow, Snow

Wow what a crazy snow storm we had here in Virginia yesterday and today!  The school sent the kids home 3 hours early from school yesterday.  So we got home by...oh, 12:30 p.m.  within the next to hours it started snowing.
Before and after picture of my husbands truck.    In less than 24 hours this is what we had!  CRAZY!

My car is small and as you can see it is pretty much buried!  Thankfully I don't have to go anywhere...pretty much everything was closed today!  Schools are closed tomorrow so we won't have to go anywhere!  
I got the girls to go outside with me for a little bit.  They lasted a for a bit but not very long.     


I think we will be outside for a little bit tomorrow!  Maybe get a bit of shoveling done around my car.  Today we tried to build a snowman but....the snow just wasn't sticking together....kept crumbling.  So we might try tomorrow.

Well if any of you were affected by the snow...stay warm and safe.

Have a great day!
