Also, there is a November Special!  See below!

Baby it's COLD Outside!

It's official!  We've had our first snow of the year.  No, I don't mean a flake here or there.  I mean an "inches" snowfall ... the kind that prompts the kids to throw on snow pants and boots and make a snowman.  Every year that goes by, I dislike this winter routine more and more.  However, there is something to be said for a fire, cup of hot chocolate and watching the joys on my daughters faces and suddenly it doesn't feel quite so bad!

Where have you been all my life?

About 3 months ago I bid farewell to my blackberry and traded it in for the new iPhone 4.  It was life changing.  I've had iPod's for years, two iPad's since last year and didn't think that life could get any easier.  The iPhone convinced me otherwise but it's happened again!  I like to think that I can "wait" to get my hands on new little gadgets but seriously, who am I kidding?  Two days ago my darling husband inherited my iPhone 4 and I got the new 4S.  It's AMAZING!  Siri, in two days you've gotten me out of more jams by reminding me what to do and when to do it and I love you madly. 

While playing I came across this new app - maybe you've seen it.  It turns your photos into something that looks hand drawn with pencil or chalk.  I think it's pretty cool ... what do you think?

Gone Too Long

Just the other day Maggie reminded me (again) that I haven't been updating this site.  When I went out to it, I realized that it's been MONTHS!  Ugh, I'm so bad at this stuff.  So, for those of you that read this, I'm sorry.  I officially have lost myself in the day to day routine. 

So, it's a new day.  Lots has happened since I talked to you last.  Maggie turned 8 and started 3rd grade, Emma turned 6 and started kindergarten, Steve is inches away from finishing school up and I'm still plugging along with not a whole lot new to report! 

No, there are no photos on this post.  Why?  Well, I'll tell you.  Back in September, Maggie tried to download a game to my laptop and POOF 33 viruses.  So, all of my photos from the summer are on a USB drive and the photos I've taken since the computer crash are still on the camera. 

Anyway, we're back on track!  Come back and visit!  I'll have more updates soon.
