Since Indiana has crazy ass weather we had SEVERAL snow days and delays. We now are paying for them. Kobe's normal school day is, dropped off at 7:55am and picked up at 2:50pm. Since we have to make up all the days we missed because we already used our "Built in" days we are having to start earlier and get out of school later. School Starts at 7:50am and pick up is 3:40pm however today being the first day when I arrived at the school at 3:29pm the kindergartners were already outside waiting to be picked up and half the parents weren't even there.. When told dismissal is 3:40 I'd think it meant that's when the kids would come out. We were out of the school area by 3:34.. but whatever lol

Saturday the weather was wonderful.. We were able to be outside with out a jacket. We cooked out.. we sat outside and enjoyed the fresh air.. Then Sunday we had flurries pretty much all day.. Coats had to be worn.. That's Indiana for ya!

Here are some pics

My puppy Duke. He's huge and won't even be a yr old until August!

Soooo over it!

I'm soo over it. as in this snow!, Winter!, Cold temps!, this cough I've had for over a month!, my messy house!, my no energy!, and so on..

I've been so "not myself" that I didn't even give Kobe the birthday party he always had in the past.. I didn't go all out like I usually do. I just made him a cake and at the last minute invited my sister's family and my brother over to our parents to eat pizza and have cake. The weather changed the pizza part.. since it was snowing like crazy the small "pizza, cake and ice cream party" went to hurry open your gifts, blow out candles and eat some cake.. I forgot to even go buy ice cream.

I started to get emotional because it wasn't fair to Kobe. I mean we can't control the weather, which isn't what I was getting emotional for, it was because I didn't give him the birthday party he wanted or I guess I should say *I* wanted. But on the long drive home that took way longer than it should have thanks to the snow, Kobe told me this was the best birthday ever! I'm glad he thought so because I thought it sucked..

I did make his cake this year. He's really into Duke's of Hazzard.. Thank you CMT for the reruns lol

Our friend Paul gave Kobe his model of General Lee he made.. Kobe was in Heaven!

We got Kobe an Xbox360 for his birthday which he was totally pumped about!

Mamaw and Papaw got him his very own tablet

Aunt Amanda got him Lego Batman 2 for his xbox 360 and Uncle Adam game him money so I guess he did have a really good birthday after all.. I did promise him that he could pick 2 friends and we would go bowling.. or 1 friend and go to a movie.. so we'll see how that goes lol

Now for some WONDERFUL news!!!
