There's a Pig Outside

OK, so a little background info on this video. Henry told me one day that there was a pig outside his window that told him not to get out of bed because it was dark outside, (yes, I realize that sounds a little crazy!) also on this video he is doing his impression of Matt and me telling him to get back in bed. Every night after we put him to bed he gets out of bed, (I think it is part of his bedtime routine,) and we go in his room and tell him to get back in bed. So I give you; Henry the impressionist who sees imaginary pigs. LOL

snow pics

Here are a couple pics to share of the snow. Yes, my son is wearing pink boots. Hey, they work better than sneakers at keeping his feet dry! and it will be embarrassing for him when he's 12.

You know sometimes I miss the snow. The winters in South Carolina are lovely, mild sometimes cold but never as cold as those below zero mornings waiting for the bus with wet hair in Shandaken, NY. I remember thinking that it was so cool when my hair would freeze (Weirdo!). I would get such delight out of cracking the iced over puddles in the driveway with my foot like popping bubbles on a sheet of bubble wrap. We lived on a hill so walking down the driveway could sometimes be dangerous if the ground was wet. You didn’t want to step on a sheet of ice hidden under freshly fallen snow! The best times though were when I would wake up to the sound of snowplows and flip the radio on to here that Ulster County schools were Closed! Yay, no school! We would spend the day sleighriding down the hill in our yard. We had a great hill for sleighriding, one year Kelly and I built a luge track. (by the way it took about 12" of snowfall to accomplish this one)

Tonight, snow is in the forecast and I feel that familiar little spark of excitement I would get when it was supposed to snow on a school night. Yes, I know, the weather man likes to disappoint when it comes to snow and if we do get snow it won’t be more than an inch but it is still exciting. Luckily, I’ve got milk and bread so I am all prepared!!

Henry Singing the Wiggles

Henry loves The Wiggles, here is a video of him singing "Here Comes a Bear" along with his video that I got at Goodwill for $1 (best dollar ever spent by the way). Please excuse the mess, I was in the middle of cleaning and you know how sometimes when you clean you make more of a mess than it was to begin with? Well, it was one of those times.

We have a winner!

Well, with 62% of the vote, She's a Peach wins out. Thanks everyone who voted and suggested names!

Vote on My Blog Names

OK, now that I've had some suggestions and an idea of my own I'd like everyone to vote on their favorite. I will put a poll up for a couple days to give all my readers a chance to vote.

1. She's a Peach. this is my idea taken from a line of a song by Burl Ives called Sarah the Whale. the song goes like this: In Frisco town there lived a whale, They fed her peanuts by the pail And washtubs and bathtubs And sailboats and schooners. Her name is Sarah and she's a peach But don't put food within her reach Or babies, or nursemaids Or chocolate ice cream sodas She loves to smile and when she smiles You can see her teeth for miles and miles And her tonsils and her spare ribs And things too fierce to mention Now what can you do in a case like that There's nothing to do but sit on your hat Or your toothbrush, or your best friend Or anything else that's helpless. My dad used to sing this to me when I was little.

2. Serendipity - suggested by my Aunt Shelly

3. Simply Sarah - suggested by Katie

4. Sarah's Mixed Berry Pie- suggested by Kelly

5. Shoprite Ballet - suggested by Mom

What should I call my Blog?

So, I was thinking yesterday that I don't really like the name of my blog. Sarah's blog is so boring and too simple. Then today I was hitting "next Blog" at the top of the page and came across another blogger who was asking for suggestions on her name and I figured if she can do it why can't I? So I am asking my readers, what is a name that would fit my blog? What is a name that defines my blog? Or do you think I should just leave it as Sarah's Blog?

Oh yeah, and if I use your suggestion you get a prize!!

Henry is learning to use the mouse

Henry is learning how to use the mouse and he is doing a pretty good job at it. This video is of him "coloring" on the computer. The Fisher Price website has coloring pages for kids. He did this for a long time just clicking on the paint colors and filling in the spaces. He loved it! I took another video of him and I tried to get him to look at the camera and he replied "mommy, I'm painting right now" He's a troubled artist.

Happy Three Kings Day!


Today is the 12th day of Christmas or Three Kings day. The Christmas season is officially over. Read more about Three Kings Day here:
