Rosemount Irish - State Runner Up

Rosemount played in the state championship game tonight and although they didn't win, they certainly have a lot to be proud of...what a fun journey it has been. Here are few shots from the last couple of games in the dome. Congratulations Rosemount on an awesome year! Spending time with Lara is always a treat!

Happy Thanksgiving

Dear Friends and Family, Happy Thanksgiving! There is so much to be thankful for this year and you are certainly at the top of the list. We thank God for all of you and for all that He has blessed us with. I love Thanksgiving...and today I get to enjoy it even longer since I woke at 5:30 to Quinn yelling for me...found him staring at the table that we set last night...I guess I'm not the only one who loves it. We are looking forward to family coming over today to celebrate....thankfully Jeff does all of the cooking for the big meals so the pressure is off. I am SOOO looking forward to the next few days....we have alot going on. On Friday, we will go to my brother's football game in the metrodome....they are playing for the state championship against Wayzata the old school that I used to work at. I am SOOO excited and SOOOO very proud of him and his team. He has worked incredibly hard over all of these years...certainly a dream come true for him and all of us. GO IRISH! On Saturday, we will be decorating for Christmas....I LOVE this and then on Sunday I am taking Ellie to "The Christmas Story" at the Children's Theater....My dear friend Kris's nephew is playing the lead role....THE LEAD role and I can't wait to see him perform.

We hope you have a blessed Thanksgiving surrounded by those you love! God Bless You!

Winter has arrived!!!

Winter came in like a freight train. We awoke to find not a dusting of snow but rather inches of snow. It was unbelievable. Quinn woke up at 6:15 and I turned the patio light on for him to see and he was so excited...."me go snow right now"....ahhhh, I don't think so. The girls were equally excited and ran from window to window. It was coming down like crazy...I have no clue how much we got but it was at least 7 inches.

My poor birch tree just can't take this kind of treatment....

The crew as excited as can be...

Quinn in the cul de was so deep and the plows did not come through today.
Mia thinks it is just one big feast...

Snowman time...we need to find some eyes....

It was a fun day. I love the snow because it is soooo pretty and my camera gets a workout....I just don't like the cold...a wimpy Minnesota girl!
