My first post...

So, I decided to start blogging!! It seems that it will be a form of journaling for me...
Today there is a MAJOR blizzard going on in our area, so we are homebound.
Church was canceled, and with that, the kids' Christmas program for Sunday School.
We made a gingerbread house yesterday as well as some sugar cookies to decorate, so I don't have anything very "fun" to occupy the troops with today.
(Lest you think me quite Betty Crocker, the gingerbread house was from a box we bought at Target, and the sugar cookies were packaged from the grocery store--we just used some cookie cutters, baked them, and then I'm letting the kids decorate as they go.)

Chores took especially long today with all the snow and wind and cold---the boys and Dennis were quite bundled against the elements as they went about their duties!!
I always feel a little guilty all snug and warm in the house--but it doesn't last long. The guilt, I mean.

So, right now most of the kids are reading, Dennis is watching football on TV, and I am doing laundry. But hey--when am I NOT doing laundry?? The diapers are sloshing about in the machine as I type. Gotta love those cloth diapers!!

Well--that's about it for my very first post. Hopefully, the ones to come will be more entertaining than this one!


  1. I love it that you did the gingerbread house and cookies. And I'll bet your kids were thrilled. Not too much effort to make it magical for them!
    I'll add your blog to my favorites and stop by often!

  2. Welcome to Bloggy land!

    Your comment on my blog was so sweet. I really appreciate it. It encouraged me greatly!

    We certainly do have a lot in common!

    I look forward to getting to know you through your blog.

  3. Welcome to the Blog!! Great first post! Whereabouts in the midwest do you hail from? I was born and raised in Dubuque, Iowa....(though I now live in the south). Heard about the storm blowing through. Brrrr. I miss Iowa, but not days like that.

  4. Thanks for the welcome, Mrs. B and Wife to the Rockstar!
    It is very cold in Minnesota right now: 18 degrees below zero.
    Are you sure you don't miss days like that??
