Photo Gallery Wall

 For Valentine's Day, my husband gave me 2 gallons of Moonlight White paint and various painting supplies,
along with the promise to paint the stairway walls.
Now that may not sound very romantic to you,
but to this girl, 
Hubby earned major points.

Some Special Birthdays

Today is my hubby's birthday.  This morning the kids took him out to breakfast while I was at work.  Since we all work such crazy shifts, we will celebrate this weekend.  We got him a very special present and I know he's gonna love it!

This is a photo taken on his 34th birthday (I think), 
 about 18 years ago.

While today is a day for celebration, tomorrow is a tougher one.
It is the birthday of both my niece and my best friend.
But they are both spending their birthday's with Jesus.

After the Storm

Well, we weathered the storm.
And had a lot of fun too.
We had the day off from school and work 
so we spent the day preparing.

Blizzard Nemo

We are expecting a blizzard here in southern New Hampshire.  They are saying this could be the biggest storm in 10 years.  It is also the 35th anniversary of the Blizzard of 78.   I was 15 years old that year.  My family was very poor and we lived near the ocean in Gloucester, Massachusetts.  This is where the movie "The Perfect Storm" takes place.  I can remember how unprepared we were back then.  We didn't have much food, and we had even less money.  I am so thankful for what my family has now.  The wood is piled high in the mudroom.  The fridge is full.  We don't have a generator, but we can always put the food in coolers outside and cook on the grill.  I feel safe and snug.  Of course, I don't know if I'll feel the same when the toilets won't flush anymore!  

See that little purple oval below.  That's us.  Right smack dab in the middle of it!  That yellow arrow is pointing almost directly at my house!

I love living in New England.  I love the weather.  The snow, the cold, the humid summers and gorgeous falls.  I can't imagine living anywhere else.  So bring it on.  We're ready for you Nemo!
