Winter wonderland......

 We woke up to 12-18 inches of fresh snow on Christmas morning.....
 every thing looked magical......
 The boys have gone ice fishing the last two days and have caught their limits
both days.....and Mimi and cory have been having fun sledding at  friends houses.
I took some pictures in town of all the snow....I will share them next!

I had three moose in the yard yesterday and I totally forgot to take
pictures because it took an hour and a half to get Jerry back in the house
even a leftover piece of steak wouldn't get his attention,
 that poor little moose family.
Thank God they looked at him like, would you please be quiet!

I hope you all had a lovely Christmas!

I finished taking the tree down yesterday, 
it gets so dry with the wood stove.

Do any of you have fabulous New Year plans?

Take care,

 Now we can sit back and relax,

 Just a few more days.....
 were going to try and go snow shoeing on some of the hikes we went 
on this summer over Christmas break!
The kids and I are Super excited about this...

I pray you all have a blessed Christmas.....
Love Heidi

Let it snow.....let it snow...

I'm loving our fresh new layer of snow everything 
looks clean and crisp along with some warmer temps
although with this brings back slick road conditions.

There was an accident right in front of our home 2 nights ago
I'm not sure what happened but they took out a large tree......
and the dogs were going crazy with all the troopers
and tow trucks.......I pray everyone was alright.

On another note,
Are you all done with your Christmas shopping?

Take care,

Year to year......Christmas Cheer....

 I ran into the gal that works at the thrift store at the bank yesterday and she was telling me
to stop by she was putting some new things out......
I found this lovely vintage frosted set.
 This year everyone wanted the tree back in the living room
which is not an easy wise.
 I also found these lovely Anne Klein flats, 
I don't think they were ever worn!
 This was last year and I must say I'm thankful we left the flocked
tree put away this year with Jerry......
because He's just too precious!

We have gotten a good dump of snow 
along with that came some lovely warmer temps.
its wonderful!

I want to thank you all for your lovely comments on
my last post about my Battle with the Bulge.
They mean a lot to me!

Hope your all having a great week so far,

My Christmas wish list......and small news!

 First I really have everything I could ever want right now this year
for Christmas......
 But when the catalog for my beloved 
Anthropologie came in the mail......this sweater for our cold days
moved to the top of my wish list!
 along with these shoes......
 this chair I threw in for conversation.....
the jury is still out on this one!
 cocktail party?
 for my next trip......
Cute little top....
 Adore this dress....
Don't forget to sign up everyday for the Anthropologie Gift Giveaway
worth $15,602.....every things crossed on this one!

For my small news. A few months back I mentioned that I had joined a bootcamp
program which in turn made me want to make more healthy choices.....
I finally have lost 25 pounds. Of course I have a few more to go
but its a start in the right direction.
For my entire life I have always carried around extra weight
and I pray this never finds me again.....I'm so excited!
Thanks for letting me share!

Don't forget to sign up for the Wish it , Win it!

take care, Heidi

Gingerbread, Moose,a re-do and a big thank you!

 I hope you all had a lovely weekend......ours was a cold one!
below zero temps still!
 After church yesterday Lisa came home with us to make a 
gingerbread house with Mimi.
She is a foreign exchange student from Germany
she goes to school with Jeremy and is in the same grade.....
she's so sweet!
(note the other little helper in the picture)

 How sweet is she, I had to rescue her from the thrift store...

 I re-did my wall again......

 I won a lovely giveaway from sweet Ada
I can't wait to do something fun with this fun wall paper
The cushion sits proudly on my bed
 where the bright colors keep me smiling!
Thank you again Ada.

 Not one not two but three moose for you.......

Tomorrow I'm baby sitting my two little blonde monkeys.....
they are so cute!

Take care, Heidi
