Winter Poem

It's winter here in Michigan
And the gentle breezes blow,
Seventy miles an hour,
At twenty five below.
Oh, how I love ole’ Michigan
When the snow's up to your butt.
You take a breath of winter
And your nose freezes shut.
Yes, the weather here is wonderful
So I guess I'll hang around.
I could never leave my Michigan
Cause I'm frozen to the ground!!!

Stay warm sweet friends!

Miss Emma celebrated her BIG number 2 birthday!
She is a big girl now!
Gosh how fast the time flys....

Just like it was yesterday ..... I know.

Gramma and Poppy bought her the cutest cupcake hoodie

Swap Up Date

I sent out a group email to all swappers!
Please read it.....
any questions contact me!
If you did not receive the email....
Contact me after looking in your spam folder!

Shivering Hugz,

Sugar and Spice

And everything Nice....
That's what little girls are made of!

I handed hubby this picture and asked him if he knew what it was!
He said..... "yeah you can tell just by looking at this picture"
I said.... "really.... what is it?"
He said.... "it's an alien"
{after all the joking.... he said "It's a girl!"}

The doctor said he was not absolutely positively sure because the umbilical cord was in the way but,
he said he was leaning more towards a girl!
He said " I'd buy girl clothes..... BUT don't cut off the tags just yet"!
Miss Emma and Gramma were in the room for the ultra sound and of course she has no idea what a boy or girl is {she just turned 2}
I said "Emma is getting a baby sister"..... she said "High Five"
I was hoping for a girl since our daughter has all girl clothes from Miss Emma, her son is 13 years old.
No baby boy clothes!
As long as its healthy that is what we pray for!
It would be fun shopping for baby boy things too!

For now..... This Gramma is thinking PINK!!!!

Warm thoughts coming your way!
