Another Snow Week, I presume. . .

This is what we woke up to this morning. . .not a surprise exactly, but at midnight we still didn't have anything so I thought maybe we were going to dodge this snowfall this time.
The kids have been in school one full day since January 4th.  The last full day prior to that was December 10th.  It's been a brutal winter so far and it's not going away.  On Tuesday, when they were in school for the entire day, they all made up the Christmas parties they missed prior to the holiday.  On Wednesday they dismissed early because it started to snow, Thursday there was a delay but since no more snow materialized I dropped them off at school at 9:30.  Friday snow was predicted so school was canceled.  A snowflake never fell from the sky.
Marie and Frederick went outside and started on a snowman today. . .they got a good start but lost their momentum.  Oh well. . .they probably have the rest of the week to finish it.
Middle Tennessee. . .winter is hard to like.

  1. I live in Middle Tennessee, too. But since I homeschool it doesn't deter our day quite as much. We took a snow day today. I love the snow here as compared to Minnesota where I grew up. Now, there 4 inches doesn't slow them down. But I like that it causes us to stop for a day or two and we don't have the cold for 6 months. But I do enjoy the beauty of the snow. Anyways...saw that we're both from Middle Tennessee.

Sunday Dinner

This is the easy crockpot pork tenderloin dinner that I mentioned the other day. Obviously I'm not making it again today, but it IS a great Sunday dinner -- definitely good enough for company too. Here is your cast of characters:
Pork tenderloin, 1 can of each: Cream of Mushroom, Golden Mushroom, and French Onion. I am not a fan of processed foods, but this is an exception. I also don't really like mushrooms but they are easy to pick out of this dish if you like (I give all of mine to Margaret). That's it, that's all you need! Oh, and a crockpot and 8-10 hours :)

Here is what a pork tenderloin looks like if you've never bought one.
When you open it up you get this:Lots of people will further trim that fat. . .I don't because it will cook off. I do rinse and pat it dry at this point. Also, when my mother makes this she salt and peppers the meat -- I do not. My kids HATE pepper and I generally don't add salt to my cooking.

Add all three soups to the cro…

Love well

I needed some pictures late last week and realized that I don't spend enough time documenting the moments in life -- to me, if the picture is important enough to take, it's something I want to journal about.  It used to be that I was so busy documenting that I was forgetting to live in the moment. . .I think I have a much better balance now.  But then, this week, I was reminded of why pictures have always been important to me -- because LIFE is important and it's fleeting.
My aunt lost her son (in the sunglasses) this week.  It was unexpected.  He was 41.  He was one of my twin cousins.  Born on my sister's 2nd birthday.  I say "my aunt's son" because I can't imagine losing a child.  I'm sure no one can.  He was also a dad -- of that great kid all the way to the left in the front row.  J is 9.  So a boy is now without his father, and a mother and father without their  son.  His girlfriend lost her partner and many people lost a friend.  His sister…

Margaret's first 8th birthday party

Margaret had her 8th birthday party TWO WEEKS AGO!!! Ugh. It was on a Friday. The following Monday was the last day of school, then we left immediately for our trip "home" (300 miles away) and spent a week there. She had another party there, with family, ON her actual birthday. We traveled home Sunday, went to visit friends at Lake Cumberland in KY on Monday, "caught up" at home Tuesday, than visited Splash Country in Eastern TN with friends yesterday. Whew! Busy start to the summer :)This was the group of friends that were able to attend the party:Marie (her sister), AC, SM, EC, and the birthday girl herself :)She had three other people that were invited (she was 8, so I planned for a party of 8) but they didn't come.

We decided on a "crafting" party this year. My good friend and neighbor, Rene, works with Stampin' Up! and put together a great party at her house in her stamping room. The girls all made photo albums and charm bracelets. It…
