Sunday Snippets

Baby Madelyn Ann came home today. Mommy and baby are fine. Jojo likes her new little sister but, don't be calling her Maddie. You'll be corrected, "it's madelyn" she'll say.

Had Mom and Phil over for lunch. Chicken spaghetti and salad.


Chocolate chip cookies warm from the oven.

Extra batch for mom to take home!

The sun is shining. Richie is taking his motorcycle out for a quick spin around the block. Still quite chillyut there.

Busy week coming up!

Friday Five

One. It snowed last night....for real. We came home around 10:45 p.m. And it was a blizzard. Ground covered today. For real!

Two. We had our baby girl born yesterday. She weighed 7 lbs and 10 ozs. Born 04-04-14. Easy to remember. Right now, she is baby no name. When I get the OK, I will post a picture and a name.

Three. I finished her baby blanket 12 hours early. She was born at 8:30 a.m. Blanket completed Thursday 8:30 p.m.

Four. Getting ready for Florida.....facial this past week, next up pedicure, eyebrows, haircut and color.

Five. We put up a BlueBird Box. I swear I saw a bluebird in our yard so I want a nest in our yard. Went to The Nuthatch and learned all about them. Hubby placed it in an eastern direction, away from predators, open we watch. All we saw out there so far was a possum.

Have a fun weekend. Do something exciting...OK!
