One last romp in the Ormsby snow!

We are finishing up our last week in Pennsylvania and to get us ready to go back to Alaska, it's been snowing non-stop for days! The boys and I have loved being able to spend time with family and friends, but we ready to go back! In fact it has been quite a thing for Ian to work the "I want to go home" sympathy card! It's only when he gets in trouble or doesn't want to eat what's for dinner or when he's tired or when he doesn't want to go to bed. OK, so it's a lot but pretty soon it will be "I want to go back to ______________(Nana's, Papa's, Grandma's, Grandpa's, or even Pennsylvania). I mean this isn't something new. Before we left for PA it was "I want to go back to Georgia!" I pray that someday he won't want to go somewhere else and there will be peace for at least a hour! : )

Regardless, we have been making the most of our time with the snow. The boys love it and so do I! Ryan's parents and Grandma have been so great to have us and I appreciate the extra help with the boys! I forgot what it was like to be able to take a nap! And being with my family has been a huge blessing in it's self! I guess you don't realize what you have until you don't see them very often! I've definitely been spoiled! Anyways, with only 5 days left here I will be trying to get as much packed in and will post when I can. Love you all!

I just love this picture! He's such a cutie and so will to get his picture taken (THANK YOU GOD!).

I took this while Ian was running through the snow. I had to pretend I was taking a picture of something else. I'm so sneaky!

So I tried to get the boys to sit together to take a nice picture and Ian decided that it was a NO GO! He pulled his hat down and that was it. Some day, I will have a nice picture of both of them TOGETHER!


  1. We can't wait and are counting down the days. Joshua is so excited to have his best friend Ian come back! And honestly I need to get out more. I am spending too much time on the couch and in the fridge, if you know what I mean.

  2. You should be glad you are not in Ormsby this morning. It is 3 degrees! It was a slow 4 WD ride all the way home yesterday. We miss all of you very much. It is just too quiet. Finally the sun is shinning. Stay warm.
