I can not say enough how gorgeous it was outside yesterday.  While I longed for large snowfalls all winter long, getting a taste of spring was DIVINE!

I’m realizing with each sunny day that comes, how my mood can be directly associated with sunshine.  I felt great all day long.  I always try not to let weather get to me, but let’s face it:  Winter with its overcast skies, and countless hours cooped up indoors (library, science center, house, basement – it’s all indoors) gets to you and especially to an extremely active 2 1/2 year old.

The beautiful weather translates into a happy little guy (and his happy momma) who stayed in his wagon our entire walk around the lake, walked/ran the cul de sac at least 5 times, and played on the playground with such complete glee.

(I’m not going to go into how he decided to bite/hit/pull at the shirt of our very sweet little neighbor guy who is twice his size and 6 years old).

Ahh, I’m entering a Spring State of Mind.

Today looks to be another of the same and we are very excited at our house.

Looking Tough Before the Sock Hop!

One of the benefits of a larger church, is having activities tailored specific to age groups.

Tonight was our church’s Preschool Sock Hop.  Picture inflatable jukeboxes, balloons, ice cream, hula hoops, a dad dressed as Elvis (or was it actually Elvis?), you name it.

The kids had a blast, and were completely adorable.  Not to mention I think they all ran/danced the sillies out.

They were so funny.  Our little guy was quite the poser for the camera tonight so we got some good pictures.  He tried the limbo, but wasn’t quite sure what to think of it.

With his neighbor friend. Doesn't she look totally adorable!!

They all got sunglasses when they came in. In most of the pictures his are on upside down. (See the picture before this one)

I enjoy reading the occasional magazine, however with my journey as a homemaker, magazine subscriptions just aren’t really in the budget with a few small exceptions.

Today I discovered that our local library allows you to check out current issues of MANY magazines.  I came home with the January 2011 issues of Vogue, Taste of Home and Budget Travel.

Checking them out also solves the problem of getting rid of old magazines.  So check with your local library.  You may be check out the latest issue of that magazine you’ve been waiting to read (at no cost)!
