I havent forgot about you.....

been awile since I blogged here.....

I have tons of valid excuses.....wanna hear em'?

Stomach bug from Hell!  took out 4 of us!  Emmy had it the worst, lets just say she would be a fabulous painter....because my entire bathroom from 4 feet down was another color!! NO JOKE!

ahhhhh...  that was a fun week!

Went to a marriage retreat....and that is twas!  Free room and board. FREE CHILDCARE!  the were nice classes that taught us both a little something.  They had great childcare that the kids really enjoyed!  We went on an AMAZING trip to a gorge that was BREATHTAKING!  a true once in a lifetime thing!


And now today, it is snowing again.  The news here is so bad...they said light snow....I think they were off by like ughhhh 5 inches! long as it does not get all crazy like last month ill be good.   I was on snow lock down for awile there!
Thats our news for to find something to do today.

One last thought.  We were thinking of taking the kids to go see Alice in Wonderland, and it dawned on us that they have only been to ONE theatre there whole lives!  REALLY!  and it really is nothing great!  In the states it would be the discount crap theatre that you go to to see older movies.  There is no surround sound or even cup our next trip the Richardson family is heading to CINETOPTIA!!!!  I dont care if it is $200 These kids need to experience some real american stuff!  thats all ;)

Oh man the snow!!!!!!

I swear I have never seen this much snow in my life! Maybe going to Timberline lodge at Mt. Hood, never around my own house! I love watching it come down....I love it when its dark and you can look at the lights in the backyard and watch it just falling so gracefully. I however do not like when it piles up and I am unable to drive! I swear the more it snows the more I know I am in lock down in my house! I have been keeping up on shoveling the walk, but its taking its toll on my already banged up shoulder. There is so much now I am dumping it in my yard instead of the road, for when we do leave the house its hard to get out of the spot where the car has been parked for the week. Yesterday I begged John to take me out and drive me. He did, and I went and did some consigning at the Thrift store. I grabbed some milk and staples, and got some bird food for a project with the kids. It really started to come down last night when we were driving home, and it has NOT stopped! its been snowing for over 12 hours! Im adding some pictures to prove i am not I want to get out and take some nice photos with my other camera, but it WONT stop snowing for 10 mins so I can get out! I guess ill just have to be patient :) This week I have been catching up on movies and doing some CAAAUUUUTTEEE crafts for my new nephew Jeremiah that is coming soon! I have not had a baby in such a long time I bought shirts instead of onesies, OPPS. They are turning out so adorable though, Ill post pics of those soon too. I started another blog, its of crafts and thrifty tips and such. I believe if you go tot he about me part it will show my other blog. If no the link is here:

That's the news for now, thanks for reading...leave a comment or email me at I wonder who reads this?

    Happy New Year :) Happy Silvester!

    Happy New Year From the Richardson Family!

    Tonight we are making some goodys and going to a friends house for drinks and celebrating :)  We always have such a great time with all of them.  We built a fire in our little fire pit, and we stand around it staying warm....roasting marshmallows (which many Germans have never done).   We got a bunch of fireworks.  I have one special firework, actually a lantern....for my grandpa who passed this year.  We are going to light his name on it and hopefully it will fly way way up in the sky :)

    This year besides the loss of grandpa was great.  We went to Spain, we got a new dog, Isaac started school, John is in the tower program, we had our niece visit, we traveled alot!, We finally hung up curtains (HUGE to an army family) was a very great year to us.  I only hope the next year is as good!

    Happy New Years Everybody! 
    Love, The Richardson Family
