Here are some more snow pictures!

This is what it looked like last Wednesday going down my road. These pictures were taken in late afternoon and the road had been nicely plowed! I got stuck trying to come up the hill at the begining of my road the night before. My big van just could not get enough traction and just wouldn't go anymore! Thankfully I did not slide back down the hill or go in the ditch. 13 yo and 9 yo walked down to the neighbors house three houses down from where I got stuck and he pulled me half way home with his tractor and even he had trouble getting traction. Can you see the difference of how much snow is on the trees in the last three pictures verse the first picture? There is a visible line where I get way more snow at my house than the people at the bottom of my road. The pictures were literally taken within a 200 foot distance.

I saw some spray painted hand blown eggs on the web and just thought I would try them!! But, I figured the spray paint would be a little hard to smell while I am pregnant so I used glitter instead!

Gobble! Gobble!!!

13 yo got a TURKEY!!! WOOT! WOOT!! I think it was the second round that he won. He was so excited!! He insisted that we make the turkey for Thanksgiving dinner but, we are giong to my MIL's in the afternoon and my mom's in the evening and they already have their turkey's. So, I will probably have DH help him fix it on Sunday or maybe Black Friday while I am out shopping. He would be thrilled! Next year he is to old to shoot at the Turkey shoot so I am so glad he won this year!

6 yo at the Turkey shoot!

These are my favorite pictures!! 6 yo would close his eyes before he would even pull the trigger! How do you hit a target with your eyes closed??? He actually did a couple of times....LOL...that was only because there was a gentleman behind him holding the gun!! These pics were all taken just before he pulled the trigger.

11 yo at the Turkey shoot!

9 yo at the Turkey shoot!

My 9 yo has to love this the most!! No, they do not actually shoot a live..or fake...turkey. There was 26 kids doing the shoot. They each take a turn shooting at their own paper target. They (the people in charge) take the best two shots out of each round, 5 rounds, and the kids can only win one round giving other kids a chance. They gave out 11 turkeys.

This is why we have so many boys!!!

The boys did an awesome job shoveling out the driveway this morning!! 6 yo did help with like two shovel fulls but, by the time I found me camera...which DD swore she did not touch even though I did not even ask her if she had it...LOL...he was already sitting on the ground! 11 yo cleaned off the van for me. Aren't they sweet!!!

This morning's snow!

These are pictures to show how much more snow we got last night. These are the pictures from my back door and front door. 13 yo is waiting for the neighbor out to the end of the road so he can take him to the men's breakfast. We did not want him to pull onto the driveway and get stuck...which I am not sure what difference it makes because our road has not been plowed and has the same amount of snow on it!! Look at the difference in the amount of snow on the picnic table compared to yesterday!!

Apple outfit!

Here is the Apple Outfit I made for DD a couple of weeks ago. She wore it to church today so I was finally able to get some pictures of her in it. This top picture is my favorite!

The pants and top are actually two separate pieces. The top overlaps the pants just a little bit.

23 1/2 weeks!

Here is a picture of me from this morning at 23 1/2 weeks. My 11 yo took the picture...sorry about the sunlight glare.
