I feel like I have fallen into the blogging black hole. I have been keeping up with blog reading, but posting has fallen by the wayside.
I have had a cold/cough for the past month, and just went to the doctor yesterday. She did a chest x-ray, and I have bronchitis. I got a sinus shot in the hip, blood drawn, and prescriptions for antibiotics, and codeine cough syrup. I am not coughing like I was, so I do feel much better.
You can see a little of what I have been doing lately. Last week when I babysat the grandsons, we made a tent under the dining room table. I couldn't get both boys picture in it at one time, but they loved it. Jackson had his toolbox and several cars under there. I had to get in, too-which didn't leave much room for playing.

We had snow here in the Memphis sweet little tigers in the snow. They liked playing in it.
Their daycare had a winter gala program. This cute backdrop was made for photos. Jackson was a snowman. They made their shirts.
He loves his friends there, especially that cute little blonde girl next to him.
They were so cute lined up singing a snowman song.

Here I am with my favorite little fellows.

I went with my daughters, and Shawn's sister in law with the kids to Pump it Up...a blow up slide and bouncy place.
Hudson is sporting a new cute haircut.

Jackson loved going down the giant slide.
They all enjoyed the bouncy house.
Getting three kids to look at the camera is impossible.

But, you get the idea. We had a blast.
So, I finally got the Christmas decorations put away, and the house looks kind of sad. We have been going through old Christmas decorations in the attic, and trying to purge and consolidate storage. I do have about 8 boxes of items to take to the Goodwill. Not to mention the MANY boxes that were taken to the dumpster. It is nice to get rid of clutter in our lives.
We are trying to make room in the upstairs bonus room for either an exercise bike or elliptical machine. We have a Bow-Flex up there, and I decided it is time to use it. I need to get rid of a bit of weight that is cluttering my body.
I have vegetable soup cooking away in the Crock-Pot as I type. It smells so good .
That's all for my ramblings today. Stay warm and cozy.

I'm a Winner!

No, I'm not tooting my own horn here , but I won somethin!! . I won this sweet LOVE necklace from Sommer at Designer Garden . I like to enter giveaways, but haven't won too many things. I get so excited to get packages in the mail.

The necklace was made by her friend, Tammy, at Type A.

She makes them from silver and fires them in a kiln. She stamps them with wax seal designs.

I think it is fabulous. She sent me a little enclosure card thanking me for "stalking" her blog.
Don't you love to "stalk" other people's homes via their blogs?

I know I will enjoy wearing it for Valentine's especially.

I hope the new year finds you well. We have snow here, and it is cold. I haven't really had much blogworthy going on.
Hopefully, I will get back in the swing soon. In the meantime, I will just enjoy stalking all my favorite blogs. Hee. Hee.
