Election day fame...

The election is over and though it did not turn out as I wanted, I have to say Congratulations to Barrack Obama. I wish you and your family well in the next four years. Do America Proud.

When we went to vote this year there was a reporter there taking pictures and he took a couple of us. One of Lainie peeking out of the voting booth and one of all of us waiting in line. Lainie was so pumped when the reporter asked her name and my permission to print it in the newspaper. She said "I am going to be FAMOUS!!!" Lexi repied, "It's only fifteen minutes of fame Lainie." OH MY!!!

Here is the link to the paper, Lainie is the first in the top row and we are the fourth.

Catch up post # 8....Lexi's X- country meet

This past fall Lexi competed on her school's X-country running team. At the end of the year meet she had a great time, while doing really well. Out of about 100 fourth graders she finished 18th. Woo-Hoo! Way to Go Lexi!!! You are totally Rockin Awesome!

Snow day!!!

I am such a sucker when it comes to fresh snow. It has become an unintentional tradition in our house that when a significant amount of snow falls overnight, I keep the kids home and we have fun in the snow. We accumulated about 6.5 inches of snow Tuesday night. The kids had great fun sledding (or boating as Landin called it) in the backyard,and Landin was thrilled to have sissies at home to play with him. They are getting old enough to play a little less "safe" and a lot more fun. They were found sliding off the roof of the shed, and sledding down the steepest hill they could find which plows them directly into the house!!!
