Deer Visit The Birdfeeder

      This morning we had a couple   of visitors to the birdfeeder   other than the birds. You know Spring is coming when these guys start showing up.

Olive Garden and Roses

Yesterday Jim and I were in Syracuse so we decided to celebrate Valentine's Day a few days early and had lunch at Olive Garden ( one of my favorite places). We topped it off by getting two of their fantastic desserts to bring home for later. Jim also presented me with a dozen roses. The sun was shinning and the skies were blue for a change so it was a perfect day.

Piggy Sitting

Yesterday Jennifer had to go to Florida to take a class for work so Jim and I picked up Reese and brought here home to spend some time with "Grandma and Papa" while her mom is away. She's a good little pig and likes to "talk" to Papa-probably because he's the     one who feeds her.

Snowy Day

Last night we got about 18" on new snow which meant Jim was out snowblowing the driveway yet again. The birds were really enjoying the feeder today and we were able to get some nice photos of them. I also took a few pictures to show how high the snow has gotten next to the house. Enough already Mother Nature-we want Spring.

Sunday Get-together

Today Jim and I hosted Sunday dinner for the family. Tomorrow would have been my Mom and Dad's 69th Anniversary so we wanted to remember the day even though Dad is no longer with us. We had 19 guests, the food was delicious and the weather co-operated. One of my nieces brought her Wii and hooked it up to the TV. The kids had a great time singing and dancing while the adults got to visit and catch up on the family news.
