It has been a busy week!

I have been going non stop the last week making dolls. I had a couple of my biggest customers come over to see what I had made up for Sandra's. Well they left with most of it! I have a couple of orders to keep me busy for the rest of this week. This Annie is made from a pattern from Sweet Meadow's Farm.
WSOAPP is having a spring fling! There will be lots of goodies in the auction from over 15 members of WSOAPP.
Nothing much else exciting besides making dolls and cleaning my house! We have had two more snow storms since I posted about the last one! I am done with all this snow!

Shiloh - My Little Man!!

I checked my e-mail this morning and to my surprise I got new pictures of my "little man"!! My husband has 2 pure bred German Shepherds...(well one now, Jaggar pasted away a couple of months ago). They are not fixed because they are show dogs...well somebody was not watching them close enough when Dakoda was in heat and we had 9 puppies!! Well they were a handful! They all took after their mother except for one! My little man! His personality was his father's through and through! Laid back, mellow, nothing phased him, kind of a loner. I fell right in love with him and if we were to keep any of them it would have been him! This one couple came to look at the puppies and brought a friend along with them. Well he had no intention of getting one but fell right in love with my little man. He said that his wife was not keen on the idea of getting a dog. A week later he called and asked if he could come over again to see him...then a couple of days later he brought his wife...she fell in love too! He just retired and that dog is his life! It is all about the dog, Shiloh goes everywhere that he does!! He gushes like a proud poppa everytime he talks about him! Every once and a while he will send pictures and they bring him by once a year when they come down this way to go camping. He is three now! They grow up soo fast! He is some handsome!!! :o) I will have to dig out the picture of him when he was a puppy!!!

Happy Valentine's Day!

I hope everyone is enjoying their Valentine's Day! Hope you all got spoiled! I did! My present from my husband was to get up this morning, pack up the car and take Caleb to Moncton! They will not be back till tomorrow afternoon! The best present ever! I am going to finish my coffee and get off this computer and get to work! The only time I have to stop is to heat up leftover lasagna!! :o)

Report Card Day = Poor House for ME!!!

Two years ago when my oldest went from elementry school to middle school her marks dropped. So as an incentive I told her that I would pay her for anything over a 75 to bring them up. It worked great and she brought her marks up, it is all about the money!!! Well Paige started middle school the next year and between the both of them it costs me a pretty penny! This is the first year for exams for Kristen so I had my fingers crossed that she would do well and she did! She is holding an 80 average, she was disappointed over her science mark which brought her average down but she did great in all her other classes! Paige's average is a 93. She came home all excited yesterday because she got a 98 in social studies and Mr. Moore wrote in her report card that she was the top student in his class! She was tickled pink over that! :o) This picture is of them on their first day of school three years ago...they don't let me take a pic of them anymore! :o(

Last night we went visiting friends, it was late and Larry wanted to get home and go to bed so he obviously was not thinking too clearly because he went barrelling down our driveway, which is no big deal on most days. BUT our driveway is a big "U" and one enterance is a lot steeper than the other...and when we pull in the driveway we always pull in the steep one and go out on the not so steep one. I am not quite sure what he was thinking because it is not like this just happened last night but our driveway is a skating rink, literally, and has been for the last 3 weeks!!!

So last night he flew in the driveway and put on his brakes to slow down and turn into the parking spot....nope that didn't happen! He just slide right into the yard/snowbank and got the car hung up and couldn't get it out! So this morning after he spent a good half hour digging out around the car he came inside and asked me to go out in the freezing cold and back the car out while he pushed! As I was sitting there sipping the first couple of sips of coffee thinking do I really want to go out there and freeze my buns off backing out the car that he got stuck....as I was thinking this in my head he knew exactly what was going through my head and said "If you do not come out and help me get the car unstuck I can not go to the post office and mail your parcel!" Well Stacey I did it for you girl! I grabbed my hat and mittens and a way I went out and braved the bitter cold! Your parcel is on its way to the post office as I type this! :o) AND I went back outside to take pictures. It snowed a bit last night but it is completely covered in ice like the top of the driveway! You can see the tire tracks go in a ways...he had her stuck good!

Another Day Another Snow Storm! :o(

Well the Ground Hog said that there is going to be another six more weeks of winter...I do not know if I will be able to handle much more!!! We had yet another snow storm...the 8th big one so far this winter! We got over a foot of snow. School was cancelled again. My oldest, between exams and school being cancelled, went to school 2 out of a possible 8 days!! :o(
I have all my things ready to list on WSOAPP marketplace for the 7th! I am on the ball this month...no rushing or waiting to the last minute for me! :o) I will keep you posted...maybe even a little sneak peek!
Here are pictures from 4 years ago. It was called White Juan. We had over 2 1/2 feet of snow and winds of over 100km/h! The only reason the road got plowed is because the farmer down the road came through with his tractor....lucky for us that milk truck has to come every day!
