How's your WEATHER?

They are saying we are in for an ice storm starting around 3:00 p.m. today and ending tomorrow about noon!! I asked my boss if I could get off at noon to be able to go to the store to prepare!! I'm just praying we don't loose our electricty.
It's really cold here too. This morning -6. I'm just hoping winter doesn't feel as long as it did last year. It seemed to go on and on and on.

Well, the good news is maybe I will have more time to get stuff done! Stay warm :o)

Michelle WON!!

Well, last night was VERY sad because we didn't get to see Celine, but there was some HAPPINESS!! Fran and I both wanted Michelle to win and she DID!! We just love The Biggest Loser and this year they had some not so nice people. Michelle was a sweetheart and wasn't slamming all the others. You could tell she had a great heart. She did the work and didn't back stab and she WON!! Now for all of you that don't watch it you really should. I have seen al the seasons. The next one starts Jan. 6th so be sure to check it out.

Going to go see "Our Girl"


Hopefully we will get another chance. :o)

We're going to go see "Our Girl" tonight. We just LOVE Celine Dion. The weather is REALLY UGLY so we are hoping to still be able to go. We were suppose to go Nov. 4th but that got canceled.

Fran and I went to Vegas a couple to years ago and we got to see her for the first time. It was WONDERFUL!! She is SO beautiful.

Our weather is calling for 2-5 inches and we will have to travel at least 1 1/2 hours to get there. Oh, how I long for SPRING :o)

What a FUN day :o)

Well, I loaded the pictures wrong so the bottom picture was suppose to start this off. I walked into my office Monday morning and found Bergner boxes EVERYWHERE! At first I was confused and then I remembered it was my 4th Anniversary at my job.
My bosses are the best. I get presents all the time. My boss Linda will say "I was walking around the store and I heard it calling your name so I had to get it." I have one of those jewelery boxes from QVC that is a full length mirror filled with things that were "calling my name". I love surprises and I've never had so many in my life.
This platter is a creamy yellow.

Can't wait until the kitchen is done so I can start baking again! Just love this baking dish.
A close up picture of the bowls. What great detail.

This is a three tier wrought iron stand with rectangular plates. It is just adorable.

Isn't this Chip 'n Dip bowl set COOL!! I just LOVE it. I love the wrought iron stand too.

This will be great for casseroles. It's been so long since I've had a kitchen but even if the meal doesn't turn out it will look pretty on the table! HA!

Another casserole dish in that buttery yellow.

A nice big serving bowl.

A large rectangular dish with a wrought iron stand. When we get the kitchen done we will have a big island that will be great with all of these pieces when we have parties.

Well, this should of been my FIRST picture. When I came to work these boxes were everywhere. It was so much fun opening them. I will enjoy these pieces for years to come. I am VERY BLESSED!

My Baby is a TEENAGER!!

A while back my son asked me " Mom when you were growing up what did you want to be?" I told him a mom. He said" No I mean what did you want to BE?" I told him for as long as I could remember I wanted to be a mother. When my husband and I got married we wanted to start a family right away. What we thought would take us 9 months took us 8 1/2 years! There were many tears and infertility treatments. We also had a miscarriage and FINALLY.....
Our Little Miracle.
December 4, 1995

When this picture was taken it seemed like a life time before our baby would be shaving! At thirteen he is an early bloomer like his daddy. He will soon be shaving.

This was his Halloween costume when he was almost 2.

He had the lead in his school play and had to wear a tux. He played Abe Lincoln. He was in 4th grade.

Logan has brought such happiness to our lives. Just when we think we have our whole life planned we are reminded that God has better plans for us. Even though we wanted 3 children but only had one, the joy we have been given is priceless.

This past summer Logan came in 2nd place at the Home Run Derby.

His baseball team placed 1st this year. This is his team congratulating him on one of his out of the park homeruns. He's the one with the RED shoes!

Happy 13th Birthday Logan!!
You're a gift to us everyday.
Mom and Dad
