Spring in Wyoming!

I am witnessing the slow appearance of spring outside of my window. The snow is subsiding and the temperature is consistently rising everyday. Spring is on the way!

The view outside my window these days is mostly of birds. Sometimes the rabbits and squirrels that live in the yard make their appearance but mostly the birds seem to enjoy my veranda.

The sparrows sit on my railing and look in the window at me. I think they enjoy seeing their reflections in the window.

The chick-a-dees come in closer and eat the crumbs the girls have dropped. I love these birds!

Lately, the ravens have been making their appearance and spending a lot of time out on the lawn. I have never seen so many very large ravens all together before. I wonder what kind of conference they are attending?

Spring is coming to Wyoming, but we have at LEAST two more months! I am looking forward to doing the happy spring dance!
Have a good weekend, everyone!

My best Valentines....

On Valentine's Day, my three girlies came and spent the day with me. We had so much fun! Kaylee and Elizabeth each made me a valentine and one for Glenn and Shirley. We went and had lunch with them.

Kaylee, age 6.

Elizabeth, age 4.

Big girl, Brooklyn; age 10 months.

My girlies are a constant joy in my life!

Valentines - Not for the weak at heart!

It's easy to get sentimental this time of year.
Remembering past loves, hopeful of new loves.
Making plans with high anticipation, not knowing what the future will bring.
Love is a gift, a privilege.

Happy Valentines Day!

Happy 5th Birthday, Kash!

These pictures were sent to me from Bryan from his phone; He forgot his regular camera so he used his cell phone camera. The look on Kash's face looking at all of those Hulk cupcakes, is priceless! :o)

As we grow up, we learn that even the one person that wasn't supposed to ever let you down probably will.

You will have your heart broken probably more than once and it's harder every time.
You'll break hearts too, so remember how it felt when yours was broken.
You'll fight with your best friend. You'll blame a new love for things an old one did.
You'll cry because time is passing too fast, and you'll eventually lose someone you love.
So take too many pictures, laugh too much, and love like you've never been hurt because every
sixty seconds you spend upset is a minute of happiness you'll never get back.

Don't be afraid that your life will end, be afraid that it will never begin.

It took the words right out of my mouth!

Peace and happiness everyone!
