Snow and Ice

Welp, I guess I knew it was coming. =oP Being from Georgia, I'm still not used to the winters here, even after 5 years. lol Anyway, we've got about 5 inches on the ground right now with ice coming down. Joe came home early and it looks like he'll be here tomorrow too. Fingers crossed for Rebecca and Andrew to come up this weekend to see us! =o) (we miss ya'll!)

On a different note, Dad sent this poem and I thought I'd post it. I think it would apply to quite a few of us.

This poem was written by a terminally ill young girl in a New
York Hospital...

***** SLOW DANCE *****

Have you ever watched kids:

On a merry-go-round?
Or listened to the rain slapping on the ground?

Ever followed a butterfly's erratic flight?
Or gazed at the sun into the fading night?

You better slow down.

Don't dance so fast.
Time is short.
The music won't last.

Do you run through each day on the fly?
When you ask How are you? Do you hear the reply?

When the day is done do you lie in your bed
with the next hundred chores running through your head?

You'd better slow down

Don't dance so fast.
Time is short.
The music won't last.

Ever told your child, we'll do it tomorrow?
And in your haste, not see his sorrow?

Ever lost touch, let a good friendship die
Cause you never had time to call and say,'Hi'

You'd better slow down.

Don't dance so fast.
Time is short.
The music won't last.

When you run so fast to get somewhere
You miss half the fun of getting there.

When you worry and hurry through your day,
It is like an unopened gift.... thrown away.

Life is not a race.

Do take it slower
Hear the music
Before the song is over.

Goodmama photo shoot

Wow it's been awhile since I've blogged! I've been busy with Addie and Judah lately. We've also been working for over three weeks on renovating the bathroom. That nightmare is finally over and we can now breathe again! The bathroom is a whole other post, and I'll get to that when I have some pictures for you. Joe did an awesome awesome job and we're super happy with the way it turned out!

Anyway, I was lucky enough to do a trade with another mom and finally got to try out a goodmama diaper! These are crazy popular right now! One of the fun things they do is a weekly photo contest. You can win a new goodmama. =o) Anyway we decided to take a few pics and hopefully get a good one to enter the contest this week. Here's what we got:

And Judah got in on the fun too! Addie loves pulling Judah's hair and you can see the mischievous look in her eyes in the bottom picture. lol I can tell she going to be getting him into trouble in the future.
