Snowed in…

snowed in

We ate cocoa puffs this morning, so excuse his shirt.  LOL  Very appropriate shirt huh?


At 7:30 this morning and the snow is still coming down hard, Ralph and Skylar (who calls the snow ice cream for some reason) were checking out the snow.


Still lounging out!

Welcome Baby Piper!

My niece Piper Calais (pronounced ka-lay) Mathis was born on January 20th, 2010.  Such a pretty and sweet little baby girl.  We finally got to see them yesterday, only because we’re basically an hour away, the weekends are the only times I can see family.  She has blue eyes (I’m hoping they will stay), two big dimples, dark brown hair and the sweetest grin.  I came armed with my camera of course.  Enjoy the pictures.  :)

Silly Skylar…

While Daddy is rocking out on guitar hero, Skylar rocks out on the drums in his own “rock out” gear! 

Oh, Ralph and I sing and dance.  So, we’re taking our act on the road.  Wish us luck!  :)
