Her Broken Heart

Yes, I know, it has been a while. I do have a few pictures that I would like to get posted, but I will get to it... eventually.

Most recently, we had Pit Passes for the Monster Jam. That was Friday night. I'll have more on that, but have not really gone thru the pictures. And Happy Birthday Gabe!

Saturday night was the Monster Jam. While I only took about 5 pictures, our card ended up completely filled up! That is something that we have not done yet. Needless to say, I have done nothing more than load the pictures from the card to the computer.

These pictures, though, HAD to be shared. This just cracked me up!! Poor Gravedigger. The very first obstacle on the freestyle ended belly up.

This was her reaction...
Pretty much the rest of the night.

Guess that's what happens when you're a die hard fan.

Brandon's haircut

Took Brandon for a haircut while Jess had Girl Scouts. Boy did he ever need his hair cut! It was sticking up and laying down in all the wrong places!! But I had to share his new (seems to alway be changing) look-

He is so darn tickled with this haircut. He has been asking for a looooong time for a mohawk. We've tried everything else, so why not? It grows!

I Heart Faces- Photo Challenge

I know that I have posted this once, but I decided to enter it into the I heart faces Week 2 Challenge. This week's theme is "Best Face Photo;" using a photo taken in December or January.  I had taken this one of Brandon not even a week ago. The start of "the big snow" on Thursday. He was so excited to get out there when he got home from school. Although, I made him wait until after lunch. He was thrilled to be wearing his new scarf! He tried building a snowman; even coming back in to get a baby carrot for the nose and sweet tarts for eyes. This picture, I think, is when he came to collect more "eyes" because the dog ate the other ones.

I love the shade of blue of his eyes! You can see the snowflakes on his long lashes and a peak of chapped lips from under his beloved scarf. This boy just makes his momma melt!

Check out the other entries, they are amazing!

big blue eyes and a missing tooth

Brandon helped daddy shovel the driveway (again) and the sidewalk

Then Jess came home. She played out front with her brother.We saw a lot of this...

and this.

No pictures of her big blue eyes. Mostly the back of their coats. Daddy went back out to capture their smiling, red-cheeked and snotty faces, but the camera battery died.

yep...still here

A lack of posts, but we're still here! Keeping it low profile while the kiddos were on Christmas break. We spent NYE at grandma and grandpa's house. We came home before the ball even dropped. We considered going to grandma Anne's, but with the threat of an icy drive, we postponed. Lots of good that did!! Inches and inches of snow out there today and I don't think it will disappear by tommorow afternoon!

Here are a few items that have happened this week...

the Christmas tree and decorations packed away (THANK GOODNESS)

Brandon lost his 2nd tooth! Must be something about teeth and Tuesdays. The 1st one came out on a Tuesday as well. Or maybe it's just me... remembering perfectly random and useless information. But it is true.

I shoveled the driveway this morning. Hopefully daddy will be able to tell since it never stopped snowing.

Sweet little Grace laughed for me this morning. So cute.

And a sidenote, you should see the beautiful blue that Brandon's eyes turn when playing outside. Don't know if it is due to the cold or the color of his jacket. It's amazing. Jess will be home soon. I'm sure it will be amazing x 2.

Oh, and check this out...
