Snow in the desert

I hope you are all having a good day!

Here`s a yummy treat I just made: Blueberry Muffins!!
I had to try one to make sure they are good.. indeed they are!!
The kids will love them after nap and school

It has been really cold here in the last few days and we even got snow in the mountains which is not so far away.
We took the kids up to Madera Canyon for some snow play. You gotta take advantage of it here in the desert. Summer is not far away. Here are some pics from past weekend, we all had so much fun. Luckily the snow attire still fits them

I think we will go back next weekend, looks like its gonna stay.
Enjoy your day!!!

Dalai Lama Quotes

Good morning my friends, happy Friday!
Very rainy and grey in the desert today. Here is something to brighten your day!

Dalai Lama Quotes: "It is very important to generate a good attitude, a good heart, as much as possible. From this, happiness in both the short term and the long term for both yourself and others will come."

Hello my friends, happy weekend!

I have been very scrappy lately and it feels great to get back into it and get so much accomplished. The munchkins wanted to scrap with me this afternoon, so I gave them some old supplies of mine and let them have it... it was fun to do this together. I have a feeling that Naiya one day will scrap like me and with me... Enjoy the latest creations!

Back to school

Hello my friends, happy Monday!

Today was back to school after 2 weeks being lazy and ignoring the clock. And how nice those past 2 weeks were with fun activities like going to the movies, shopping, a visit to our favorite cafe, sledding.. etc.

I have to say it was quite tough for Mama to get out of bed at 5.30am and start the day.
7 am sounds so much better.
The kids did fine and my lil princess was so excited to see her friends.A bunch of lil kindergarteners were crying this morning, but not my daughter. She hugged and kissed me and walked right into the gate of the playground. I feel so proud of here!

My lil man has a hard time right now going back to school. I guess he was used to the different schedule over a Cristmas break and we have some small tantrums in the mornings. I feel sad when I have to leave him crying.
His new expression is: I`m all alone here and he says it with that pitiful voice, you just want to scoopjhim up and kiss him and hug him forever.

I didnt get to do any crafting today...I have to get this house back in shape after those 2 weeks of doing nothing. I alaso need to organize my scrapping area, but that just might be a project for tomorrow.

Off to bed now, its getting late in the desert and the alarm clock strikes at 5am

Thanks for stopping by

Welcome 2010

Happy New Year to all my friends!
May 2010 bring you happiness,health, love, peace, joy and everything you wish for!
I am excited for 2010, it MUST be a good year!
2009 was a busy one. We lost people we loved, we left great friends behind,we bought a new home, we moved crosscountry, the kids started kindergarten and daycare and we are still getting used to the new area.

For 2010 I wish for some more peace and quietness in our lifes and that we can settle down in our beautiful home in the desert and make many great friends.

I wish for health and happiness, I want the kids to be happy in the new environment, I want them to blossom and grow and make lots of great friendship.

For me I wish to get some peace in my crazy day to day life and to just stop and breathe sometimes. Have more quality time with my kids and family and more time for my creative ideas.. and I have lots in my head for this year. More to come later!

For now I say good night with some fun snowplay things from the desert.
