Ahhh...Snow Days!

I admit it...I LOVE SNOW DAYS!! I tend to be a bit of a "homebody". So when we have weather like this I don't have to feel guilty about staying home. As long as there is food in the pantry and diapers for Joseph...I'm set!!! I know there are those of you out there that HATE winter. I guess I must apologize for being so excited in your misery. I've lived in Indiana my whole life and I know with Indiana winters comes Indiana snow! I can't change that...so...let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!! Welp, all that being said...time to go out and enjoy. Anna and I are off to play in the white winter wonderland! ~Jaye~

Ha! Looks like Joseph needs a kleenex!!

Some inside fun!

The End of Another Kind of Season

This weekend brought the end of another kind of season at our house....the Holland Birthday Season!! I am reminded that God does have a sense of humor. At least it seems that way when He planned the birth of our children!!

Wesley starts off the festivities with his 13th birthday on October 21st. He enjoyed a family dinner of his choice...t-bone steak. This had to have been the biggest, thickest steak I've ever seen!

grilled to perfection...

Success!! He did have his "peeps" over for some football and video games!!

Jessica's birthday is on November 16th. She turned 15 this year and hosted a "sleep" over with 8 of her closest friends!! Wow...that was a LOT of teenage girls in one space!!!

Joseph's 2nd birthday came on November 21st. He chose a quiet celebration with his family!!

Enjoying some birthday cake!!

Being 2 is hard work!!

Anna finishes up the birthday year on December 8th. She turned 7 this year. She also had a two day celebration by having her friends over on the 7th.

Then she opened our presents on her real b-day, the 8th.

Wow!! She all the sudden looks so old in this pic! :(

Well, all done for another year! Now we can sit back, relax and focus on the most important birthday of all!!! I hope you all are enjoying this joyous season!! ~Jaye~

Another Roof Job

This weekend I spent most of Saturday working on another roof. Anna brought home a school project...so we built a ginger bread house. It was so much fun. Anna is a girly girl and we don't often get to really connect on a lot of things. But this weekend it was all Daddy and his little girl. I had a blast. It was pretty cool being able to work on this with her. I know what your thinking but the project was for us to work on together and to be creative. So we did and we were. You'll notice the first picture is the little house that was sent home with Anna. She had a bag of candy, a cup of frosting and that little house.

Well, we decided to do a little addition. You can see we added a front door, a couple of windows, shutters, an overhang above the door, sugar plum light poles and a complete first floor. Anna was pretty proud of her little project when we were all done and I was proud of her creativity.

And yes, we have working lights! The light poles outside and one light inside.
