Finally, an Update!!

Hope you all had a fabulous Easter. I spent my holiday at work. Was not too busy, but a very weird weekend. Happy it's over.....and look what I came home too........

My day lillies are coming out like crazy!!

and FINALLY, we have grass!!! We still had snow when I left on Friday, but after temps in the 50's the past couple days, I can finally say that our snow is GONE!!! Bye, Bye snow!! I still have a little snow in the back yard, but it is no longer a 6 foot drift.

We have been busy here with spring activities. My mother and I went to see my niece and nephew at the prom 2 weeks ago. Here is my Niece/Godchild Brittany with her date/boyfriend.
Lastly, we've had some exciting news in our house the past couple weeks. My son Alex, was recently named North Dakota FBLA's Parliamentarian. He is now a State officer and cannot be happier!! He will represent ND at the National Conference in Anaheim, CA in June.
Here he is after the awards ceremony.

and accepting the new Officer Position.

It was an exciting day for us. My parents and I were able to attend the awards ceremony, so we got to experience the whole picture. It's a very professional organization, and you can sure tell by the way they had the awards. Very formal. (very long, as well)

With the nice temps we have been having, we have also been experiencing alot of flooding in the area. Alex was out of school today to sandbag some homes, and will most likely be sand bagging tomorrow, as well. Our home should remain safe.........cross your fingers.

That's all for today!! Hope you all have a great week!!

We Live in a Crazy Place

You all remember my last post where the topic was flooding. Well, the flooding is still being watched and noone is out of the woods yet. However, last Monday, March 30th, Mother Nature blessed the State of ND with yet, another snow storm. This was most likely the worst of the season for parts of the State. (this storm seemed to have missed us, Thank God!) The following are pictures from a rural area about 3 hours from where I live. Enjoy!!

Isn't that crazy?? Yes, ND is a crazy place to live at times. If you don't like the weather, wait 10 minutes and it will change. However, I would not trade living here for anything.
Hope you all had a great weekend. I have much more to share with you all, but am short of time right now. Will try to get another post out early this week. It's been an exciting week at our house, so be on the watch for another post.
Please post a comment if you stop by!!
