Family History

If you will recall, one of my resolutions for the new year was to write at least one family history post per month.

Check out my family history blog for my February installment, plus a recent post by my dad.

Get out and VOTE!

No, it's not election time, but I would love it if you would pop on over to here and here, and give Two Barefoot Mommas a five-star rating. Remember to only rate us once at each website (per email address you have!)

C'mon, don't you love us?

Check out this mermaid Emma drew at church on Sunday... Doesn't she look just like Ariel?

Happy Valentines Day

I couldn't agree more!

New Stuff

Sophie is modeling a new bracelet we will be adding to our shop this afternoon. You can find it under Baby Bracelets... It is called, "Confetti". Also, look for the new "Mabel" bracelet in the children's section, just perfect for your pink-loving princess!

Fun in the Tub

Sophie is the sweetest baby you can imagine. We are so lucky to have her.

One of my favorite things to do with her is give her a tubby. Unlike my other darling children, (who even though they are older and know they will not die from being washed, scream anyway,) Sophie smiles at me the whole time, except when she is giggling from being the most ticklish baby in the world.

The kids like it when we give her crazy hairdos...


I was sweeping the kitchen floor a little bit ago and our weather radio starting beeping. I thought for sure it must be an Amber Alert since there is not a cloud in our blue sky today! Imagine my suprise when the weatherman announced a severe winter storm watch is in effect... For Monday morning.

I suppose I should be happy I got good advance notice of the storm... I better get all my errands run tonight, since tomorrow is the Sabbath and then it will be major snow storm time.

Have I mentioned I have been begging Elliott to move back to California? In the winter in California, its cold, but you don't mind going out in it. Here, it is just too cold to go out!

Do you like pretty things...

We do!

That is why my sister-in-law Stephanie and I opened our shop,

Two Barefoot Mommas !

Grab a cup of hot cocoa and spend a few minutes with us.

Baby, it's cold outside!

These adorable cheeks are the result of an hour or more of outside play on Wednesday... I finally made them come in because I thought their cheeks looked like they were going to get frostbite! A cup of hot cocoa later, they were back to normal color.

A new me (again)

Judy didn't like my last look, so we changed our makeup... I am not too sure about this one though!

Super Bowl XLI Colts 29 Bears 17

Hooray, they won. No doubt thanks to Sophie's great team spirit at church yesterday!

Do you think the two hour delay for school this morning is so the staff can sleep in after a night of celebrating?

Or is it the fact that it is -4 out, with a windchill of -21? Yikes! Eventually it is supposed to warm up to 9 degrees, and feel like -8. Now that is just downright balmy!!

My chorister just called to tell me that she is ill, so I will be doing music in Primary today. I am supposed to be getting today's list of songs from email right now, but Elliott's computer had this first picture on it, and it made me remember this fun trip! Can't wait to see everyone again in June!

The Good Life

There is nothing better than waking up on Sunday morning at 8am and realizing that your darling 3 month old only woke up once during the night, having your husband bring her to you so you don't have to get up quite yet, and then he gets the other munchkins their breakfast. Finally, he serenades you on the piano with beautiful music while you feed the baby.

Aah, is it Mother's Day already? Must not be since I have to get ready for a Cub Committee meeting this morning. Sigh... But it was nice while it lasted! :-)

Plus, he gave me this fabulous new makeover! Thanks Babe... I love you!

Go Colts!

That's right... after Monday I can't imagine what the newspapers here in town will have to write about. Their 3-week long football headline streak will be over; Tomorrow night the Colts finally have their chance at a Superbowl title.

To show her team spirit, Sophie will be wearing her Colt's cheerleading uniform to church tomorrow... When in Rome (hehehe).

Ethan's homework assignment for the coming week? "Write three sentences describing what happened during the Colt's Superbowl game."
