The Snows got snow today. The kids think this is great, but I'm ready for spring! Nate thought he could ride his bike in the snow, and Lily was catching snowflakes on her tongue. It was beautiful this afternoon, all pretty and white. All I know is that I'm not putting away the snow clothes until April this year. Last year I put them away three times.....I'm not playing that game again!

We have been loving the February sun that we have had for the last week. It seems that every February we get a patch of sun and we get excited for spring. Then spring hits and we miss the sun! This picture is actually from last February, when my sister and I took the kids to Hovander Park. We took a long hike around the pond and climbed the towers. I'm thinking we may have to do this again before the rain starts! Anyone up for a hike on Saturday?

It's tradition. Mom gets us girls panties (I got chewed out for calling them undies in a previous post) for Valentine's Day. I love this tradition, especially when the panties come from Victoria's Secret. Yes, I am crazy enough to show you my panties, aren't they cute?!
The funny thing is that we all love getting underwear (boys and girls, so I can't call them panties!) for holidays. My brother Marty always asks for socks and underwear for his birthday. As his sister, I just can't buy him underwear, but sometimes I'll pick up socks. We threaten the younger generation that they will get socks and underwear for their birthday, and they don't like that. Yet my generation gets excited for new socks and underwear. Yes, we are a practical bunch. On the Dennison side of the family, all the men love these blue socks that Grandma bought them all. It became tradition that if a new guy got blue socks, he was accepted into the family. They don't make those blue socks anymore, and the sad thing is that Grandma is giving away used blue socks now........that's pretty desperate!
Hope you all have a great Valentine's Day! (Don't tell anyone what panties I'm wearing today!!)

The kids had their Valentine's Parties today at school. I was lucky enough that they were at different times, so that I could help with both. You can tell from the pictures that both classes had frosting, and my kids are messy! They both had fun, got sugared up, and their teachers were happy it was Friday!

Today the online network of Angel that my online Geology class is on, had technical difficulties. My instructor Eric posted these tips to help...... I just had to share how funny it was!
Meanwhile when errors occur with Angel these are the steps to take:
1. Breathe Deep.
2. Refresh the course and try again.
3. Say "I love rocks".
4. Still problems? Email your work......
I guess you need a sense of humor to handle all these freaked out students. Thanks Eric!

I always said I wouldn't do the home based business thing...I just didn't have the time. Well......one of those came along that was just too good to pass up! I signed up this week to be a consultant for Scentsy. I love the Scentsy products and I would love to get everyone I know hooked on these smelly goodies. If you haven't heard of Scentsy, you can check out my new personal web page.
www.scentsy.com/23447 or www.scentsy.com/hollysnow.
I'm planning an open house for next month (my spring break) and I'll let you know when that will be. Until then contact me if you would like to host a party and earn free products.

Joe Moser was our neighbor when I was growing up. He and his wife Jean were like Grandparents to us kids. I remember shelling peas from their garden with Jean on her back patio. They always made popcorn balls for us when we stopped by on Halloween. I knew as a child that Joe was a war hero, but had no idea about the details. Last week Joe received the Distinguished Flying Cross, awarded to him over 60 years after he should have recieved it. He also wrote a book about being a pilot in World War II, and being shot down and sent to a concentration camp. It's an amazing story that even his own family didn't know about until 20 years ago. He is a kind, loving man, very humble with few words. Last night there was a gathering for him to show a video of him getting his award and to have him sign books. My family all attended and we were excitted to be there to support our hero. I can't wait to read his book, it's called A Fighter Pilot In Buchenwald. Joe thank you for your service to our country, we are so proud of you and your sacrifices.

We picked up Nate's first pair of glasses today. He is amazed that he can see more. I loved the look on his face when I dropped him off at school and he sat at his desk and looked at the board. He got a smile on his face like, hey, I can see it now! His glasses have transition lenses, so they go dark when he goes outside. He thinks this is pretty cool that they are sunglasses too. I can't believe how much older he looks with glasses. Dan says it makes him look smart. Let's just see if he keeps them on! Here's the promised picture.

I was home with Lily today and told her we were going on a field trip. I needed to find a rock outcrop for Geology homework. So we went on a rock hunt. Ok, it was more like a drive, so off we went. I figured the heading up to the hills would be a good bet. Problem is I hate going up twisting, curving roads, because I get car sick. Thank goodness I found what I was looking for before I got queasy! I took pictures of the rocks, took one for a sample, and back down the hill we went. We made another stop at the river to take a couple pictures and play at the park. When I got home I uploaded the pictures, wrote my report, then TRIED to attach my pictures to my homework. The online program wouldn't let me attach files that big. I tried to copy and paste, I tried compressing and e-mailing it to myself. I worked for hours, and it still didn't work. Hopefully my online instructor realizes it's the program and not me with the problem (that's my story and I'm sticking to it). So I am showing you a picture of rocks so that my day was not in vain. Oh, and can anyone identify it?
