Spreading Sunshine

This sounded fun, so here it goes :) 

The first three people to respond to this post will get something made by me! Made with tons of love just for you! It might be a card, goodies, or you might be surprised what you get! Give it a try! The catch? You must re -post this on your blog and offer the same to the first 3 people who do the same on your blog. The first 3 people to do so and leave a comment telling me they did win a lovely little treat for themselves! Have Fun! Ready........Set............Go!

Maybe you could even leave a comment of what you'd actually want...I'm not exactly famous for anything :)  But I like the idea of service...and I want one of my other friend's gifts :)

Crazy Colorado

We've been having a really mild winter...we even got flowers early.  These daffodils were taken from my grandma's garden a couple days ago.  They weren't cut for fear of frost, but fear of deer (which eat them).  
This morning we woke up to a little snow...it's noon and you can't tell from this picture, but it's a BLIZZARD!  We've gotten over 10 inches of snow in a little more than 3 hours!  Dave works minutes from home and I'm scared for him to get home.  
He's coming home early because he doesn't like me scared :)  But, we're sooooo excited to go sledding and snowman making tomorrow!

  Lydia's been sick so we've been laying low.  But we decided to go to the zoo today for the afternoon.  The weatherman said it would be 70, but it wasn't.  Oh well, still fun!
Al is an eagle in this picture.  We went into Bird World (it's an indoor area where birds fly around you and walk around freely)  A bird pooped right on Alex's head.  He wasn't even that mad about the whole thing...maybe because there weren't any other kids in there to laugh at him.  It's an older exhibit.
  Lydia had fun looking at the elephants, and they named the crocodile Charlie.  Good day

  I found out something yesterday that I should have known...  even if there are only pinks in your wardrobe that doesn't mean everything will match.  Who knew that there were 10 different kinds of pinks?  Now I do.  This picture doesn't do her justice...the shirt has sparkles on it with polka dot sleeves, the pants are orange and pink plaid, the socks have a dark pink ruffle, and then her dirty camo pink crocs.  It was almost hard to take her out :)
Alex has learned to write his name.  He practices all the time now, but he still doesn't understand how we only read from left to right...not up, down, in a circle, and upside down.  If you look closely, you can pick out all the letters from his name...or this could be his dinosaur :)
  And last, it's almost spring and I'm getting the bug.  So I decided to reupholster my dining room chairs.  They are hand-me-downs and the cane in the back has holes all over the place.  So I replaced them.
  That's all here, I hope you are all doing well there!
