Yesterday we had a snow day so I decided to take my Basset Hound mix out into the snow and he loved it! I hate the snow, but it makes the trees look so beautiful. Especially when the sun began to come out.

Well I hope you all have a great weekend 🙂

Lucy just turned four at the beginning of January and will be celebrating in a Couple weeks. You can almost always find a smile on here face which puts one on yours 🙂 She is such an amazing young girl that I believe will come very far in the years to come.

I hope Everyone’s year is is off to a great start! 🙂

DSCN0349DSCN0347DSCN0346DSCN0345After we got a couple inches of snow we decided to get the group together and go sledding at Washington Park. I personally didn’t last very long because we made poor choices and put five people onto the tube and ran into some metal bleachers. I of course was the baby and went back to Eva’s house and watched movies with her mom.

After everyone got back to the house we had homemade soup  and some hot cocoa. We later had a blast playing the game Redneck Life

Hope you guys are having a great week and are enjoying the weather wherever you are 🙂
