Babies and Buddies

Laura has been my friend since I met her.
What I mean by that is when I met her I knew we would always be friends. We always have. We don't fight, we don't argue, we don't back stab. We could go weeks without speaking due to our busy lives but when it comes down to it, she would be by my side if I needed her. I could only hope that she feels the same. We did the typical High School things together, dances, parties, etc. Then we moved on and eventually found our way to living with one another. We went through times of laughter and difficulties, but we always had fun. We always laugh.....we laugh so hard we cry.

My point of this  is to tell you that no matter how much time or distance comes, babies or no babies, friends are a must have. Laura now has a little blessing named Jakson. He was brought into this world by the most amazing parents, and I am so happy for them. Now, Lyla has a buddy....little Jakson. I can only hope one day they laugh and cry together (and not just a tantrum cry).
She lives an hour away, and we don't have time to talk much, but when I see her I feel like it was yesterday all over again. God blesses us in many ways and for that I'm grateful.

Snow Days

Snow has always brought me a sense of calm.
 The roads are quiet, the flakes are falling and all is calm and white (at that moment).
This winter we were blessed with some magnificent snow days.
 Unfortunately this meant some missed work and a decreased paycheck, but hey, I got to sled around with my little one! To me, that's priceless!

What is your favorite part about a snow day? 

Here are a few of mine:
Hot Chocolate
Snow Angels
Snow days
Fuzzy boots

Lyla enjoyed sitting in the snow with her mouth wide open to catch the snowflakes. She loves eating snow (beware of the yellow/brown snow, she knows this...). Jason loved building the biggest snowman on the block (he didn't melt for days!)

Here are a few of our pictures, a little late, but better than never!

Oh and by the way.. it's March and it's still snowing!!!
