Much to share!

This post is long time coming and contains a variety of photos, which I might add took quite a while to download. Phew! I guess that's what I get for waiting so long to post. Ha! February was an interesting month with me trying to get myself organized. Ugh! And, I'm still working on it but it's coming along. Last week was one of the worst I've had in a while but now I'm feeling more hopeful. We had some repairs done on our house, a new roof, a new front window and front porch. My in-laws had agreed to help us pay for the repairs but then backed out once we received the bill so we're left owing the contractor $7000.00. It was completly unexpected and we don't have $7000.00 just lying around. Luckily the contractor is understanding and we can pay in installments. The in-laws are rich but not easy to deal with at all. I have tolerated all of the crap they have put us through during the years for the sake of Noah and Jeffrey. But, this was the last straw and I finally said my peace. They are out of our lives for good. It is such a long story and I won't bore you with it but I just had to vent a little. Enough is enough. Okay, onto some better and more interesting topics.
The first series of photos are FBs and Decos I have made for group swaps.

The card above was made by me at a monthly card group I attend. It was for Valentine's Day and I love that there is a little box as part of the card to put chocolate.

Here are three more cards I made at the card group.

I posted a while ago that I was taking a sewing class. Here is the first project I made. It is a bag to hold sewing supplies. I'm really proud at how it turned out. I'll start my second project this week so I'll post when it is done.

Thought I'd post a cute photo of Mustang and Subaru sleeping. They are the sweetest little things.

Last weekend we went to the Sherbrooke Winter Carnival. It was such a lovely day and we had a lot of fun out as a family. Above is a photo of a snow sculpture.

Noah and I in between the columns of another snow sculpture.

Noah and Jeffrey going for a dog sleighride. I went on one too but by myself.

There are Noah and Jeffrey sliding on tubes. Wee! :)
And, it is snowing like crazy out right now. Jeffrey is shoveling and Noah is playing in the snow. We are expecting up to 50cms of snow into tomorrow. Yuck! I want spring. :(
