Warm and Cozy

 This is my favorite Christmas gift of the season.  It warms up our tv room so that it's bearable to live here in the 65* house.  So I can sit by this every evening and be warm and cozy no matter what mother nature is throwing at us this year.
Blogging has come second fiddle to our weekly routine right now.  I'm following my teens around.  Kayla has two basketball games a weekend.  Practice 2-4 days a week.  Seminary 3 days a week and YW.  We have to pick her up or take her to all of these.  (or teach seminary)

Kota (although we don't run him around any more) is working every day, but Sunday.  Has track practice 2-4 days a week, Scouts/YM and seminary.

Now throw in some laundry, grocery shopping, grading papers and you know, I just feel plain worn out,  Tired, exhausted some days.  Thank goodness for Kyle for helping, he often helps with dinner and does all the dishes, I don't know what I'd do if he was the let me do all the "women's work" kind of a husband. 

So if you don't hear from me, know that I'm probably being mom, and loving it!

The last basketball game we watched was against Norwayne.  The team we lost to in football and not making the playoffs this year.  It was a power house of a game.  Each team played hard, each wanting the win because both teams are going for league title again.  Well we won in the last 2 minutes.  It was an edge of your seat kind of a game!  Good luck Falcons.


  1. It looks very cozy...is it a real fire? Whatever, it's got to be a comfy place to sit! Have fun with all the running....it will be over before you know it. Hope the schedule eases up a bit, but I doubt it! I thought mine would after the kids left, but it's still crazy! Have a good week!

  2. Is that one of those sort of fake electric fireplaces? Is it free-standing? I've always wondered about buying one for my bedroom.

    Tell us more!


  3. Hi Stacey! The most important job you'll ever have is "mom" so you just keep doing such a great job! I truly enjoy your "home" posts, of how you are keeping up and getting along in your busy world!

    Even though I was once there, and no longer have all the running around, games, church activities etc that involved the girls, I well remember those days of never having enough hours, never getting enough sleep, never getting it all done.

    The good news is (I guess) that even when the nest is empty, you still never have enough hours . . . they get filled anyway!

    Take care and enjoy those kids and your husband!

  4. Love that new fireplace!! That HAS to be a wonderfully cozy spot!!
