And just like that...

Freshman year of hockey is over.







I don't care if he has a good game or a bad game. I just love watching my boy in net.

Winter Weekend in Ogunquit

The weather was gorgeous this weekend. You never would have guessed it was February...


We had a beautiful "beach" day...






My boy is such a love. I honestly don't know that many 15-year-old boys who show affection like my boy...


We ended that day with playing a bunch of fun games and dinner at the Maine Diner. Then today we went over to a family friend's house to visit their Alpacas...



and play in the snow...










Nicholas has been talking about driving a snowmobile for years now...and he got his wish...


And we ended our winter afternoon with clam chowder and hot dogs...yum!!

Gianna's poetry

I think Gianna has a real talent for writing. She had to make a book of original poetry for her English class. Her teacher gave her a 100 and she also wrote this note to her:  "Gianna, I absolutely LOVE all of these poems! I hope you have changed your mind towards poetry because you definitely have a talent for it. Fabulous job!"  






So adorable...


This one is my favorite...

Snow days

We're in a snowy pattern right now...at least that's what the meteorologists are saying. We had a big snow storm on Thursday which meant no school that day and no school the following day....


which meant a four day weekend...and now we are expecting another snow storm tonight into tomorrow...


which most likely means no school again...which means a 5 day weekend for the kiddies...


which means Julia will have gone to school a total of 1 day out of 6 due to the fact that she was sick the beginning of last week...and of course this is the last week of school before February vacation. Yikes!



But I sure do enjoy the snow days...no where to go and not much to do except bake my Great Aunt Cassie's oatmeal chocolate chip cookies, have a yummy crock pot dinner...



and be cozy by the fire...
