Fun, Wintery Weekend!

This weekend started off VERY, VERY snowy!

We knew a huge storm was coming Friday...the news people had been talking about it all week. So at work on Friday, I kept watching out my window for it to start snowing, and when it did, I watched to see how traffic was moving, because I knew as soon as it started looking bad, I was going to head home and finish working from home.

Thankfully, my boss told all of us that we could finish working from home. So I packed up and headed out. When I got home, all the neighbors in the court that were home, and John, were shoveling the driveways. It was really snowing hard! I went in and finished working and then finished up my Valentine's cards for my family because everyone was going to be here this weekend for my sister's birthday.

We cancelled house church because of the snow, and we spent the evening just hanging out in the house and watching the snow fall. My sister came in from Michigan (luckily the snow was a north-moving storm, so she didn't hit any snow until just north of us), and we had a very relaxing evening!

Saturday we got up and I made a huge breakfast. Afterwards we all went out the play in the snow. It was fun being out there and acting like a kid again! And it was nice to touch base with some neighbors that we haven't seen in a while. After that we came inside and hung out for a while. That night we went to dinner for my sister's birthday. I was worried because we don't eat out much because of Ryan...he's just such a handful! But he was so good that night!

When we got home we watched the CBJ game and ate cake and ice cream and hung out some more. Ryan was in such a good mood! He hadn't eaten very much at the restaurant, so I opened a jar of baby food (I have not known any other 16 1/2 month-old that still likes to eat baby food), only this time he decided he was going to completely feed himself. He held the spoon AND he dipped the spoon in the jar AND he brought the spoon to his mouth to eat. He was so adorable I just couldn't be mad at the gigantic mess he made :)

Sunday we got up and went to church. Afterwards was a quick trip to the grocery store, followed by a long and relaxing day at home. My sister and dad headed out fairly early, so the rest of the day we just hung out and played. Josh is obsessed with the new Mario Brothers game on the Wii (I HIGHLY recommend this game to anyone that likes the Super Mario Brothers games), and Ryan is also obsessed with Wii (he really thinks he's playing and really does play the baseball game on Wii Sports). Kylie and I played school :)

Now everyone (except Josh of course) is in bed. I have a busy week at work ahead of me (actually worked for about 3 hours this evening). Right now I'm going to climb into bed and watch some shows that I have DVRd :)

I was SO mad we didn't get ANY of that storm. I have barely a dusting on the ground and mostly nasty brown patches of grass. Not impressed with Winter at all!

Love the pictures--Ryan is growing so fast :)

OMG all that snow!! wow a regular winter wonderland at your place!!! The kids look like they are enjoying the heck out of it too. Growing up in upstate NY , yep I remember the excitement of the huge storms like that. Now, I would freak out haha cause I don't even think I could even drive in snow anymore let alone be out playing in it, haha. YIKES a sign of old age for sure.
Ryan with the Wii is adorable. He is so into it huh? Love each and every picture there they are fantastic.
Glad you all had a wonderful and most of all "safe" weekend. Your family is just totally awesome!!!

Do you think the best way to get the cheapest plane tickets is by calling the airline? Or, do you scan through hundreds of websites provided by search engines to find low airfare tickets? Maybe you hope to find cheap airfare in the local newspaper's travel section.
Finding cheap airline tickets can be one of the most frustrating experiences that most of us learn very quickly. Of course, most people eventually give up after spending hours scanning websites that offer virtually the same flight schedules and pricing. People purchase what they believe is the cheapest plane ticket, only to find their neighbor paid just a third of what they did!

Unless you understand the concept of of how airlines set prices, all the searching in the world won't provide the cheapest airline ticket prices. The following information will give you a guide to follow, as you wander through the maze searching for cheap airfare.

Understand how prices are set by airlines! Air ticket pricing is complex and unpredictable, and driven by competition, demand, and inventory. Airlines call this "yield management."

Competition is the beast behind the cheapest plane tickets. All major airlines utilize central reservation systems (owned by various airlines) to fill available seats. The systems are known as Apollo, Sabre, WorldSpan and Galileo. Prices are based on demand, and if some flights are selling well, the price will increase. If the flight is unpopular and has very little demand, the fare is lowered in hope of attracting consumers. In short, fares and inventory change every minute of every day!

Finding the cheapest plane tickets is difficult because travel agents and Internet websites use the central reservation systems that are updated periodically throughout the day. The reason why different searches come up with different results is because the systems are not updated at the same times. And, each system may use different algorithms when searching for low airfare tickets, which can provide a variety of ticket prices .

Traditional banking has always been a brick and mortar building where you go to deposit or withdraw money.

With the popularity of the Internet and the power it gives people to take control of their lives, many traditional banks have created banking Internet web pages where customers could transfer money, set up bill payments recurring or otherwise, quickly check items that have cleared, and many other functions that can be accessed 24 hours per day 7 days a week.

This is the truest form of banking Internet simply because these banks only exist online.

This is amazing and makes traveling a lot less stressful as well because with banking Internet you always know where your account stands.
[url=]Internet Banking[/url]
Times are changing, with the internet redefining the banking sector over the last five years. Do not be confused as it continues to develop, the many names it goes by all mean the same thing electronic, online and PC banking are all just synonyms traditional banking services provided through a secure internet portal.

Traditional banks have monitored the popularity and growth of the internet, and realising customers wanted greater control of their affairs, have created their own internet banking web sites.

These banks, and all other internet banking continue to grow in popularity because they are convenient, saving customers time and money.

The second half was a completely different story; the French team started on fire, producing great opportunities. The first came at minute 52 when Lisandro made a 25-yard shot that tested Madrid’s goalkeeper, Iker Casillas. Casillas was clearly starting to feel the pressure produced by the French team. [url=]real madrid oficial[/url] At the end of this match, Kaká stated his satisfaction with scoring for Real again in a tough match after having been injured for some time. He hopes his team will keep fighting for theiruntil the end.
"It's a tremendous joy to score; I've been waiting for a game like this for a long time. I think I've given a clear answer on the field to all of those who have criticized me," said Kaká.

In fact, after another three great opportunities for Raul to score, Madrid had its second goal of the game. The Brazilian Kaka pounced on a rebound from Raul’s shot – which goalkeeper Carlos Kameni had cleared at minute 29 – and added another point for his team.

Finding the right sports books and bookmakers to use for your arbitrage sports betting can be a daunting task with the internet now they are everywhere. The list of crooked bookmaking sites that have helped part people with their money and robbed them of their winnings grows longer every day. Being enlightened about this all sports bettors should do their due diligence before signing up with any bookmaker and be sure of their reputation as well as their guarantees on return of winnings. Almost all sports betting sites will have reviews so read them before making your decision on which one you go with.

Everyone who is involved in any kind of gaming, gambling, or betting as heard the stories of legendary people who have supposedly created the next foolproof betting system and have used the system themselves to help them to avoid losing and get higher profits over the long haul. The fact is that there is not a system in existence that can guarantee you that you will definitely be successful and never lose.
[url=]football bet[/url]
It appears that the United States legal system is closer than ever before to cutting off ties with any type of online gambling within its boundaries. This includes poker, casinos, and sports betting among others. Generally speaking, anything that has to do with transmitting money via the internet as far as gambling is concerned is being cracked down on quite harshly.

From the above, therefore, you can see that finding a good Selection System and sticking to it is the only way to go if you are truly serious about making money at sports betting.
