Springtime Snow....

It was 50 degrees a couple of days ago, and we were looking at some green grass in the yard, but mother nature decided we hadn't quite had enough of winter, and added a few inches of the "white stuff" over night last night. So, Taylor and his friends decided to make the best of it! They built a little snowman, who is melting very quickly, and built snow walls to hide behind in their snowball fights! They are having a blast! We just hope that these white flakes don't scare Peter Rabbit away!

Was my dear Gram's 89th birthday! Just look at her...she doesn't look that old does she? She is still so spry and active! She gets up and exercises there at her apt with all the other ladies 3 mornings a week! She worries about her mind, but gosh, she does so well for 89! Love ya Gram!....Bunches and Bunches! Josh was happy to bake Gram her cake! ....and boy was it sweet!

What have I been scrapping? This layout I did for Janice's monthly challenge at Something old (the pics), something new(Dream Street PP) and something blue (chipboard alphas). Well, this cute kid happens to be my husband when he was little! I am having so much fun scrapping his childhood for him. Most of his photos are in the form of slides, so I have been taking them little by little to have them converted! Isn't he just the cutest kid?

The Iditarod Dog Sled Race-Alaska

Our family has dove into all things Iditarod over the past week! Taylor's teacher has a brother who lives in Alaska, and has raced in this race. So, he educates the kids on this race, the mushers, dogs, etc. Each student had to pick a musher to follow! Taylor chose Lance Mackey! He has taken his 24 hour break and is the first to check in this morning at the Ruby Alaska checkpoint! If you would like to follow with us....!! Lance Mackey was last years winner! Things started out kinda iffy for him as his dogs were sick, and had to stop alot to change their booties! We have become obsessed, checking his whereabouts many times a day! What a fun event this has been for Taylor (and the rest of us)!
