Always Wear Your Helmet When in a Snowball Fight

The other day, it snowed just enough for a snowball fight. Josiah had played the snowball fight on his grandma's Wii and apparently some of the "players" have helmets, so he decided to get his motorcycle helmet out with the visor. It just cracked me up! Love this picture of Hailey bent over and him throwin' a snowball smack at her tail. Trust me, even though she's two, she can give as well as she gets.See, Josiah's runnin' from her. Hello? You've got the helmet, dude!Hailey's winding up for her strike on Josiah. She's a pretty good shot, too.

We have our door, but it is taking forever for the stain to dry because it has been so cold around here. It isn't looking like we'll have it in until next week :( Michael has been working hard on the house. The discouraging thing is that when we try to fix something right, we end up opening a can of worms and creating more work and expense. We had decided to remove the rest of the drywall in the dining room and discovered that the wall was not built very well, no insulation and some dry rot. We had to destroy my built in china hutch in order to get to the dry rot. We did get it all fixed right though, but now we have two more walls to drywall and a china cabinet to rebuilt, urgghh! Michael was able to finish insulating the walls this week, so I can turn on the furnace guilt-free now ;)

Our garden is flapping in the wind again after our intermittent blizzards yesterday. I've got the plastic staked down better. Hoping for some decent weather this weekend so I can plant my pea, lettuce, radish and turnip seeds directly into the ground. 

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend. If you haven't signed up for my give-away, check out my last post. You guys are awesome! I've loved reading all you comments. Keep 'em coming!

Love and Blessings,
Jackie

That is simply too cute!

Oh what fun. My Bri misses the snow. But not enough to miss playing in the park everyday!!!

I hope that the rest of your home improvement goes more smoothly. It often happens that you open a can of worms when you open a wall!!

You and your twin had a great birthday I see on her blog. I am so glad that you two got together.


God Bless.

Cute pictures! We had just a dusting of snow this morning, but its supposed to get down in the 20's tonight. I'm going to have to cover my daffodils or they will be no more.

Love the helmet. Sounds like fun!! I hope things go well with your house work. Always something. Do it yourself jobs aren't always as easy as they look.

I spent 3 hours at the tulip field east of town. It was not raining for once and I got some good photos. My legs are still cold though. Glad I took my heavier jacket cuz I needed it out there in the open. It's so pretty out there. Unfortunately I got out there after my son and family where there, oh well! Take care and hang in there, my friend!

Hailey looks pretty forceful little sis! Those home remodels can be such a pain! I HAVE the book, and both Jay and I read from it from time to time, use some of the recipes.

What great pictures of the snowball fight!

I enjoyed reading about your re-model. How very interesting! I love seeing other people's homes. I can't wait to see your end product.

I know I told you on face book, but I just love the helmet!

I hope you get some spring weather soon!

Whoops!! I love the helmet on Josiah and the little green snow suit on Hailey.

RaD said...

Yeah, Bethany can give pretty good too!

Love the pictures and the creativity of your little man!

We had the same snow this morning also:) YOur blog is just what I need as I have recently started the from scratch journey and am loving every minute of it. It is just amazing how that going back to simplicity brings such joy. When I have learned to make something new from scratch and have hung all my laundry out to dry that makes me sooo happy.

How adorable! I would love a little snow here, but that's very unlikely. It's 80 degrees. My kids would love to live where it gets cold.
Love the helmet!
