Scrabble Valentine Canvas art

During the Blizzard of 2015 that did not happen where I live, I like in NY 50 miles from the city. I need a project for my girls to help me with.  So I went to Micheal's, before the storm, and got two 12 x 12 canvas and these two decorative wood hearts.  Then I had them paint the canvas's.  They love to paint.  After they were dry I glued the hearts and the scrabble tiles.  So super easy and up on the wall they went.

They are always asking to do projects with mom.

They turned out so super cute and so easy to do.

Happy Valentines Day early!

Birds foraging in the winter

Today I am watching "Beautiful" foraging birds out my window.  I don't know what they are called but it is sure fun to watch.  ***Update!!  They are called Eastern Blue birds. With my new camera I am getting great shots.  They are preparing for the 12 - 24 inch blizzard we are supposed to get tonight and tomorrow in the Hudson Valley of New York.

This one seems to be watching me.  He is saying crazy human you are not storing food for the impending blizzard that is coming tomorrow.

I could do this all day from my living room window.  Well I would like to go outside and get more but it is cold and wet.

Snow days

My kids had the first snow day of the year.  

They could not wait to go out.

Big brother is always good for a snow ball fight.

The most important thing to do in the snow is to make a snow angel
They are so pretty.

New Years Resolutions

Welcome 2015!  I have a few things I would like to do or change this year.  I would like to get my Diabetes under control.  It is not bad right now but I still have a lot of pounds to shed and I need to avoid the sugars and bread.  This is easier said than done.  So for my first goal this year I am going to find health alternatives to cut the sugar and bread cravings.  And second because I know diet alone will not shed the pounds I will implement a work out time three times a week.  After I have established a good route I will extend that to five times a week.
Ok! I have written these down in hopes that I will succeed.  I will have to rely on prayers and will power.  Wish me luck.

The stockings were hung...

I have needed one of these for a while.  We move so much and we never have a fire place to put the stockings.  Now no matter where we are we can hang them.  It makes me happy.  And my kids too.
