Not Me Monday!

Welcome to Not Me! Monday! This blog carnival was created by MckMama. You can head over to her blog to read what she and everyone else have not been doing this week.

I do not rely on my 6-year-old daughter to translate what my almost 4-year- old son is saying since he talks so fast....No NOT ME....I can understand every word he says all the time!!

I was not one of those parents who just had to have a Zhu Zhu hamster for my daughter for Christmas...and I surely did not spend WAY too much (on EBAY) for ONE Zhu Zhu and I could not have bought 3 of them in February for the same price once they are found in the stores again...NOPE not me!!

I did not start going through all the toys in the playroom to make room for the new Christmas loot...and plead for my husband to PLEASE put the shelving in the closet that I have been asking for since the basement was done a year and a half ago....NOT ME (but I do now have shelving...and it only took 2 hrs and $48)

Blizzard 2009

Ready for the snow


Hayley standing by Scott's measuring stick.
At 12PM we had almost 12 "

View from Hayley's bedroom window looking down on the snow

The back porch

********and the snow is still falling.....falling.....and falling!!********

Let it snow, Let it snow, Let it snow

So in Hanover, PA this morning...we woke up to 4 inches of snow..and now at 11am it is still going strong. Hayley is learning about measurements at school and yesterday cut out her "foot". She took her "foot" to measure the snow at our back door this morning and said, "Mommy, there is 4 FEET of snow already!!" Well it of course was only 4 this time I bet there is at least 7 inches out there.

measurement at
8 a.m.

This little bunny is in a pickle....he lives under our shed..and for some reason came out of his warm home to see what was going on...and couldn't get back under the shed {although he has about four holes out there to do so!!} Here is is looking in at me thinking, "It's cold out here... mind if I come in???"

We are having Scott's family over tonight for a get together as well as some friends from the neighborhood...hopefully everyone will be able to make it...or we are going to be eating ham for a WEEK!!!

The kids are excited to go out and play in the snow, which their father will be assisting since I would rather be laying on a beach somewhere....
love to see the snow...but would rather stay in my warm house!!!!

It is hard to believe that Hayley is now 6, in Kindergarten, loving dance, and is turning into such a sweet little girl. and Brayden is almost 4, in Preschool, he is not in any extra curricular activities YET....., and has his very own difficult strong and trying at times personality!!

time for a short update

Wow...has it really been almost a month since I last posted. Where does the time go?? Here at the Marsh house...we are very busy getting ready for the holidays...I have tried in desperation a few times to get the "Holiday" picture of Hayley and Brayden. My last try was this past Sunday, when I decided around 6PM to try to get a picture...but then Hayley accidentally stepped on Brayden's foot and then Brayden's hand "accidentally" ended up hitting Hayley in the eye. So, after crying for 15 minutes and her eyes looking horrible...I decided against the picture. ahhhh

Last evening, a few girls from the Class of '91 had a little get together at Bill Bateman's. It was a great time seeing everyone and catching up a bit. I cannot believe that we are soon all going to be 37...and almost out of school for ahem 20 years!

I am going to end my short post today with a great picture of my parents and the grand kids from our family pictures we had taken by SJ ROTH Photography.
