Winter is finally here.....'s cold outside. Well, it took a while but winter temps have finally hit the sandhills. We woke to snowy treetops and a thin white blanket on the ground. It was just enough to make everything really pretty but didn't affect the roads. The kids were so excited......until we got the automated phone call from the schools that said they were on their regular schedule. Ugh! The disappointment. We don't see much wintery weather and when we do - they still have to go to school on time. Oh well - maybe we'll get a good snow sometime soon.

That's about all the excitement that we've had from here. Bray's basketball team is 2-1 and Gracie's working hard at gymnastics & cheering.
More stuff later,

January's off to a busy start.

Brayden's got braces......

So far we've spent the first week of 2008 touring various doctor's offices. Don't worry - no one is sick. It was time for Brayden to get his teeth fixed (which he was thrilled about for some reason) and we had to get Gracie's eyes checked. In a routine evaluation at school the nurse noticed that she may have some vision problems. We went yesterday to the eye doctor (against Gracie's wishes mind you) and she was evaluated. The verdict was that she does have an astigmatism in her left eye but he didn't think it was bad enough right now to warrant freaking her out completely by putting her in glasses. We do need to keep a check on it and will probably have to correct it in the future (with contacts according to her).

Well, that's what we've been up to this week. Three cheers for the fact that school is back in session. The kids were really getting bored (with me & with each other). Basketball games start next week and Gracie's cheerleading gets underway (photos to follow).
Better run - lots of cleaning to do & clothes to wash,
Take care everyone,
