the angels rejoiced

we are all happy with daddy's new car purchase.
i love the color. it's the 8th Honda we've owned between the two of us. hopeful it proves to be another reliable source of transportation.
orange is their favorite color right now.
we were blessed with a little spring weather preview on Monday so we planted some bulbs. corbin asked me if the bulb would make the ground hot.

finding worms and giving them names and a new home was on the agenda for coopcorb.
corbin loved the yogurt sample at Costco so much he stuck his nose in it.
i can barely lift these two up into a grocery cart. so heavy and tall.

what a week

Monday started off me being stranded on the side of the road in the Taurus. thankfully, Adam was able to come to the rescue pretty quickly.
this car was such a God send when we got it 3+ years ago. Adam's spent lots of time keeping it going. it was hard to see it go.
We sold it to the tow truck driver. Bittersweet.
So a date with the sewing machine never happened on Monday. i still managed to get all of these complete.
my Etsy shop is open! you can click to it right on the blog.
I'm excited to finally be selling my sewing online.

so super excited for the boys to be home today. i'm going to spend the weekend giving lots of hugs and kisses. and we might talk about their upcoming 5th birthday and do some planning. and car shop some more, and grocery shop and church. it's gonna be great! In God We Trust, yes!!

first snow.

this was the first time the boys had seen snow. cooper spent some time taste testing.
around town there were accidents everywhere. this poor truck driver had a bad day.
bundled up to play in the snow. they didn't last too long outside once their fingers were frozen. they did enjoy looking at the snow covered back yard from inside the warm house.

soooooo COLD

home sick... that's where we've been all week. i know most of the country is snowed in and going stir crazy to get out and about again. i feel ya! it's just too cold to get out here, and with half of us still sick we haven't wanted to be out spreading germs. come on spring weather!

Cooper found it fun to string buttons on yarn. most of the week has been spent playing the Wii, watching a few cartoons, and pleading their case for time on my computer or iphone.
Corbin talking non stop. he feels great so he's still busy telling us something all the time. and playing the Wii only after insisting he has the number one remote.

weatherman is predicting snow in central Texas today. the boys are anxiously awaiting their first taste of a snow flake or two. on Monday they had their first treat from the ice cream man. yeah, it was a warm 75 degrees that day. they chose Batman ice cream. but well of course they did!

i love peter krause on Parenthood. he is so likeable in every way.
