Bubbles. Not just for summer anymore! It was cold enough that the bubbles would semi-freeze. It was fun to watch them bouncing on the snow and the deck.
Landon thought it was pretty cool...

The moon and .....a star? A planet? I am not sure what it was, but it sure was bright and caught my eye. It's moments like this that I wish I had a better camera. The picture doesn't do it justice at all.

Just when you think the worst of it is over....this happens. We ended up with over a foot of snow! Ugh... I am so ready for green grass and blue birds!

Knock. Knock....My door. I love my door.
(Click on the picture to see the detail)

My window. I went to an Upper Case Living party and love, love, love the stuff!! However, those of you who know me also know that I have a paint problem. I can not commit to a paint color for longer than a year or two. I simply can't look at the same color year after year after year....So, I was looking for an old window to put my U.C.L.'s on. Our friends, Ken and Nancy Derby said that they had some old windows and a door in their garage that I could have. Instant love! Here is my window. Tomorrow I'll show you my door. :)

On top of skettie....Ahhh...Spaghetti. Landon's favorite meal.

When he was little he would call it skettie. :)

Star light. Star bright. First star I see tonight. I wish I may.
I wish I might. Have this wish I wish tonight.
Landon and I were wishing on this star. When he asked me what I wished for, I told him that if I told it wouldn't come true. He begged me to tell. So, I said "I wished for our family to always be happy and healthy." Then I asked him what he wished for and he said "Roller skates!"
(Can you hear my heart pounding?)

Landon and the boys. Landon invited his family and some of his buddies from school to the bowling alley today. We were celebrating his 7th birthday! From left to right....
David, Sam, Landon, Ryder, Jett, Drew, Zack, Matthew, Tate, and Patrick.

Sunshine.....on my shoulders.....makes me happy......

Ten reasons why I love Day Care.

My diamond necklaces. When Landon was in Little Flock (he was three) he made me these Froot Loop necklaces. He said "Mommy, I made these diamonds for you." I love my diamonds!

Sweets from my sweetie. Happy Valentine's Day!

Friday, February 13, 2009

Today is the kid's Valentine's party at school. They make their own boxes to hold their Valentines. Landon wanted a pirate ship, so he and his dad worked really hard with two shoe boxes, spray paint, some yarn and paper. Wow! I am impressed. WTG guys!

The book fair is at school. The school sells books and posters to raise money. Landon begged for a "Really Cool Hockey" poster for his room. Does this look like a hockey stick to you??

It's that time of the year again....The Church Play! Play practice has started! The dates for the play are April 17th, 18th and 19th.

Now that Landon can read to us, homework is extra fun! We get a little extra cuddle time. :)

Girl's night out!

My name is Desiree Siegel and I have a tax receipt problem.
While I love having my own business (both of them!) and I am a super organized person....I still can't bring myself to record and file my receipts for my taxes on a daily basis. Instead, all year long I shove them all into the file cabinet. Then at the end of the year, I have to spend hours and hours sorting and recording....I can just hear Dr. Phil now...."And how is that workin' for ya?"

Every night when we look out our front window, this is the awesome sight we see. The tree belongs to our neighbors across the street. The Krenz's. Their son's are in the service. In the summer the tree is decorated with yellow ribbons. It is taller than their house! The picture doesn't do it justice.
