Look what the bees made.


Look at what the honey bees made pretty cool. I guess we are going to keep them, a bee keeper said we must be special to have them, or its the house they enjoy. Hubby is very allergic to bees he has been to the ER 3 times in 2 months they know him by name when he walks through the doors LoL. Luckly it was the honey bee that stung him last time he didn't have a real severe reaction as he does with the yellow jackets, and we also have a yellow jacket nest in our breezeway we have been fighting last 3 months there in the wall must be thousands of them they just won't give up! I'm glad its getting cold out slows them down .

New grandbaby is here!


The newest grandbaby is here, I'm so excited! He was born yesterday February 10, 2009 he weighed 7 pounds 4 oz. 20in. long. He is so cute little button nose perfect round face all the way to his toes ! His name is Cayden Mathew so precious. My daughter went in at 6am they induced her about 7am and 5:53 pm he was here. I was with her in the room all the way it was so great i had tears in my eyes when he finally popped out. It was a little scary tho his heart rate kept dropping, they would put my daughter on o2 to see if it helped to bring it up but it didnt help much. She was in the pushing stage for almost 2 hrs she finally got him out, they didnt have to use any forceps or suction but when he came out the cord was around his neck and he was blue! The Dr hurried up removed cord and gave him to the nurses ASAP. I was uhoh finally a cry! Can you believe the cord had knots in it the nurses couldn't believe it, maybe that is why his heart rate kept dropping and took so long to get through, But thank god he's ok. I was supposed to go in to work yesterday late then come back after work thinking he wouldn't be here til late, being my daughters first baby, i had my scrubs on , i work for a Dr. and we had alot of pts yesterday it was my late night til 7 pm and im the only one who works for him. But my daughter begged me not to leave so what could i do I CALLED OFF! So i will see tomorrow if i still have a job LOL but it was very much worth it and i would do it all over again!

The Northwoods flooded!



Finally no snow or cold temps. it feels like spring, temps. in the 40-50's range. It is great! But the only downfall with the warm temps and all the snow the creek can't handle all the melting, so our northwoods is flooded.But it's great to have the warmer weather, it's probably the calm before another hit of snow comes. Spring must be coming early tho, my 2 white german sheperds are loosing there winter coat big time! So i hope it's a sign!

ICE CYCLES




Big ice cycles from the upstairs bathroom window, some are so long they go all the way down to the first floor windows.

MY SIMPLE SNOWMAN


MaMa Squirrel


I got the name mama squirrel from my husband because i make sure the squirrels are fed during this rough cold winter, there are about 4 of them that hangout in the front of the house i also make sure the chipmunks get food as well but i havn't seen them around. Do chipmunks hybernate? i dont think they do or do they LOL. We feed the birds to , we went to walmart today to buy some deer feed we feed them as well, but walmart was out of it so we will have to go somewhere else. We have another cold front coming in this weekend with some more snow "bummer" these last 2 days have felt like spring temps in the 30's no higher then 45, pretty bad when that feels warm! So everybody please help the wildlife when its cold and snowy they need food to, and bring in those dogs and cats or whatever critter you can bring in when its cold outside!
