The Amish


A pretty picture of the Amish riding their buggy past our home yesterday. It was just starting to snow and it was a freezing, brisk wind. They were going at a pretty good pace.

Homemade Lollipops

I saw these lollipop molds at JoAnn Fabrics a few weeks ago and thought it would be fun to make some yummy lollipops for the kids. I made them out of the same recipe as the homemade toffee butter crunch. DSC_0074_2

Winter Weather




Ice on our living room window.


I took this picture of an icicle outside of our back porch a couple of weeks ago. Today we have about 4 inches of new snow. Our kids are not quite like I was though, they would rather stay inside and play rather than play out in the snow with their sleds.

Sleeping Babies…



I have started putting the twins on the floor more so lately. I looked over one morning and found them fast asleep. We have radiant heat on our floor so they probably liked the nice warmth on their bellies.
