A winter March???

Well, folks, we just had a blizzard! Yes, a blizzard. In March. I know... nuts, right? Our backyard total was 16.5 inches! We woke up to a blanket of freshly fallen snow and it was just beautiful! However, it's not so beautiful for the driveway. In Colorado, if you don't frequently shovel your drive during snowstorms, it can be disasterous. The snow will melt in layers leaving a blanket of ice. So, poor Ryan had to shovel 4 times during the day. Luckily, our sweet friend (he's a sophomore in high school) down the street was out and about helping neighbors in need. While he and Ryan shoveled the first time, I got Ford's snow suit (thanks Gramps and Grandma) on and we went on an adventure. He had a great time!

He was not a happy camper at this point. He'd just fallen down, poor guy!

We planted daffodils in the fall and they'd just started to bloom. So much for
a colorful yard!

I love this picture! Ford has the faintest hint of a smile...

Look at the van in the background. See how deep it is?

Valentine's Day in Oklahoma

Ok, please forgive me. It's been a really long time since I've gotten on here. I gave up facebook for lent, and facebook is how I normally remember to update my blog. Well, I cheated last night and signed on. So, here I am...

My best friend since the 4th grade had her baby (the precious Chesney Ann) in January. Over Valentine's Day weekend, Ryan, Ford and I took a trip to the great state of Oklahoma to see the little cutie pie! And, boy, is she CUTE!!!

It was a very quick trip, but one that we thoroughly enjoyed. Ryan went to a fight at Remington Park with Mark, Matt, Bub and Matt's friend Chase. Ford went to bed and I stayed home and hung out with my mom, Alli and Grammy Glo. We also hung out with the Walcher/Lee clans for some great food and special times with family. The majority of our weekend was spent with lil miss Chesney, though. Ryan and I haven't been around a baby for so long that we'd almost forgotten how to hold her, rock her, etc. I'm used to proping Ford on my hip and telling him to hang on. Everytime I held Chesney I just felt awkward! She's too cute to care, though!

I have to say, I am SO PROUD of Brooke. Mommyhood suits her soo well. She never gets frustrated and takes everything in stride. She is such a good mommy and Ches is one blessed lil girl!

Well, I promise to get on here more often! I do have some pics to post of Ford so maybe I'll do that tomorrow:)

See, I told you I can't remember how to hold a baby. I've scared the poor girl!

I got a little smile out of her, though!

Look at cute she is! I love you, Chesney!
