The Leprechaun Trap

We will definitely catch a leprechaun with Ashlyn's leprechaun trap! He will enter through the door in the shoebox and then climb the ladder made of sticks. When he gets to the top he will walk towards the gold but the lid of the oatmeal container will collapse and he will fall to the bottom! He's trapped! :-)

Ashlyn worked HARD on this project for school! Here she is with her work of art.....

January 30, 2010....SNOW DAY!!

I decided I'd give sledding a try. That was FUN!!

Chad came out for a few minutes with no socks or gloves on. Needless to say he was only out there for a few minutes!

Chad and Ashlyn tried sledding together but that didn't work so well!
My pretty girl!

After freezing outside....Hot Chocolate and a fire are a must!

Italian punch, please!

Yesterday, Ashlyn and I went to the grocery store to get some comfort food to eat since we were going to get snowed in. (The snow didn't happen. I'm not surprised!) I try not to take her to the store much because I end up spending way to much money on stuff that we really do not need and most of the time something I don't have a coupon for. She wanted a Lunchable and begged me to go over to the aisle they were on. I gave in because I wanted her to have something special to eat while the snow was falling :-) so we made our way over. They had the small Lunchables on sale....3/$5. I encouraged her to get those but she insisted on getting one with ITALIAN punch. I had no idea what she was talking about so I kept encouraging her to get the cheaper one. Well, the tears came and I could tell she was devastated so I said "just get the one you want and let's go". So...she proceeded to grab one and put it in the cart. The one with HAWAIIAN punch! Ha! I love my AshyPoo...she definitely makes me laugh!!
