and into the oven they went. oh, the wait! they thought it just took forever, and they couldn't wait for their pizzas to be done! But they did get done, and the boys were so proud of their finished products!

Saturday I got up early and headed out to the Bachert's meat shop to get a few things, ended up having a tour. It is a very nice abbatoir, big, bright and clean. It was a gorgeous sunny day, and I was OK to drive, since the roads were clear. I am so not a fan of driving when the conditions are not perfect. So I got home, pulled in the driveway, and STUCK. The wind had drifted our driveway full of snow again. We were supposed to be at Cindy's house around 11, but we had a very hard time getting unstuck. Some men who live in the area were heading out hunting and very kindly pulled us out of our own driveway *blush*. Where would we be without the kindness of others? Thank you so much, hunter men!
So, we got on the road, and I found out that we had to drive to G's work to get a clock for G's brother. I wasn't very happy about that, since we were already late. I would not have gone to the meat shop if I had known we would have to go a full hour south before heading north. Any way, six and a hald one dozen of the other, we FINALLY made it to Cindy's house. She fed us yummy food, and then we went skating. Madalyn's first time!
She loved it and didn't to leave. Then we went bowling, where I was thoroughly beaten by most on both games. It was a fun time and I enjoyed seeing the babies again.
This morning, we had freezing rain, so meeting was cancelled. I had a nap, and I guess I needed it, because I slept for a few hours. After meeting tonight, there was a sing, and it was so much fun. Liam was not behaving very well, so we left before alot of people, though.

It's official, I am SHACKY WHACKY!!!!! I did not go anywhere this weekend, because we had quite the winter weather. Saturday was just a lazy home day. Sunday morning, I looked outside, and said "Uhhh, honey? maybe you'd better see if you can get out of the driveway before I get the kids ready for meeting!" so, he went out, and after a bit came back in and said "we aren't going anywhere! It's complete whiteouts out there" and gospel meeting was cancelled, so I didn't go anywhere Sunday either.
There was no school today, so the boys and I have been here in the house all day. They've been quite well behaved, thanks to the new computer game G installed on Ryan's pc! They've been taking turns playing, and watching each other play. It's a pretty neat game.
I needed something sweet today, so in keeping with my trying to loose weight, I made caramel popcorn hahahaha. Cut the recipe in half, so double the airpopped popcorn to cover, less sweet, but enough to make me feel like I had candy. It's really hard to lose the chips, pepsi, candy etc!

Today, the boys came home from school in a great mood. They all wanted a snack, so it was open season on the kitchen LOL. They are really getting good at cleaning up their mess, so I was quite surprised to see that one of them (I know who, but he'll remain nameless) had taken a sharp knife and slashed the three bananas that were sitting on the counter :(. Sooo, instead of letting them go to waste, I made Banana cream pie! and while I was on a roll, I made a lemon merangue one as well. They are sitting on my counter, calling me, but I am ignoring them hahaha. I haven't been baking as much as I usually do in winter, simply because I am not in a baking mood.
Liam has been reading up a storm! He really is motivated to get the next level prize at school for the # of books he's read. The students are rewarded at certain levels ie. 10 books, 25 books, 50 books etc. So he has been wanting to read alot.

There are 7 girls in my family. 8, if you count my Mom! I am the oldest of four girls, and I have three nieces. When I was a wee baby, I had a blue dress given to me. My Mom had my picture taken in it at 6 months old, as well as my sisters', so we all have a "blue dress" picture. My nieces have had their pictures taken in it as well. Here is a picture of all of us in the blue dress.
in order, me, Cindy, Jennifer, Rebecca, Madalyn, Rachel, Emma

Ryan, in the intensive care unit, just a few days old:
Ryan, loving life!
The time sure has flown by!Seems like last week that he was gooing and eating gerber carrots. Now he's 11. It's true what people say when they tell you teh years go by so fast.
The boys had no school on Friday, due to a "snowstorm" that didn't occur here hahaha. They had some fun. They played with k'nex most of the day, although Liam watched alot of cartoons. We were invited out to supper, where we had an absolutely fabulous time! Grown up company, someone else cooked the meal, and a baby. What more could I ask for? My boys played really well with their little girl and boy for hours while us grown ups chatted. (Ok, so I chattered~ I don't get much grown up conversation!)
Saturday, Arlene and I went to the bridal show. Lots of super ideas for the wedding~ and we found her dress! It is so nice. It's simple, but elegant and suits her very well. Also found the bridesmaid's dress, which is a lovely bluey lilacy colour, with layers from the empire waist down, sort of form fitting, but also bulge hiding.
Sooo, after that, I was all determined to get fit, lose weight, and today, I have the munchies like a starving wolf. Uggh. BUT, I am being more active than usual, so maybe (snort) it'll balance out.
We went out for lunch, Arlene and I. I had a rockstar burner to drink, and take it from me, don't try one LOL. They are quite chemically and don't sit well. It's hard to know what to drink since I quit Pepsi! I don't care for juice, in general, don't like hot drinks, so it pretty much leaves pop and water. Guess Water is my new best friend!
Ryan is home from school today, since it's his 11th birthday. My baby is 11 :|
