We can go snowhere. . .

I love snow, so when the weather announced woodward as the "bullseye" of the storm, I was pretty excited! Well, they made it sound like we would wake up to a mess FRIDAY morning, so when we heard thunder and saw lightnight during the night Thursday I was disappointed. We woke up to a little snow but not "bullseye 12-16" of snow. The weather repeatedly said "its still coming" but I wasnt too hopeful. I woke up this morning to find myself proven wrong. . . Our front yard. Our yukon is on the right and adams work truck is outside the fence, crazy drifts because our yard is all fenced in.
Our back yard

the back yard (looking out the garage door. . . this is where my poor dogs had to pee until daddy shoveled)

yeah, thats my grand prix buried out there. The back end is the only part visible, the rest is completely buried.

One more look at the "winter wonderland"
Adam REALLY wanted to get out today and go look around town, so he shoveled our way to the yukon doors, thinking surely our 4WD can back over a 4 ft drift seated behind it. . . then he realized NOBODY had driven down the road and he chickened out. So here we sit. Probaly wise.

Special Delivery. . . or not!

I earned a $200 cooking pan from Tupperware because of my sales last month. So I was ecstatic to see it had shipped and would be here today! Well, I get a whole bunch of shipments from Fed Ex (tupperware) and so I KNOW that my guy comes to my house usually 1245-100. Well, 3 rolled around and I kept obsessively checking my fed ex shipment status, to find, each time that delivery date is 3/23 (today) and it was on the truck for delivery. Its not 805, set delivery of 3/23 and is on the truck for delivery. Im pretty sure my package is lost! So Im officially frustrated! Im going to leave this vent with a quote from dad.
"Sometimes you cant fix stupid!"
I promise Im not crazy if you know whats going on in our lives and those we love.

First Real Boo Boo

Ally has now had her first real owwy, blood and all. We were at the church in my moms office today waiting for a tupperware shipment to arrive. She is all about standing on her knees checking things out. She was playing with my moms desk drawers, lost balance and wacked her face (or so we thought) on the desk. As I held her, she started having blood all over her mouth. We stopped the bleeding and realized she had gummed it. Now she has bruises on her gums. Poor baby. Its a good thing she didnt have teeth to begin with because she really wouldnt after that. So adam gets home tonight , is playing playstation and I hear this THUMP. SCREAM. Ally hit her head really hard on our hard wood floor again! POOR baby! She's had a rough day but has been a trooper.

Happy Crawling Day!

Thats right people, Ally is finally crawling! She has been flopping her way to things for a while now, but today she took a nap, woke up, drank a little bit, threw her bottle out of her mouth, turned over, got up and just decided to crawl. She has the leg motion down before, but not the moving of her arms. I was like oh there she goes, It made me tear up! She made her way all over the living room like a big girl. Here are a few photos. I couldnt catch her "in" the action but you get the gyst. She made it up to our DVD player and pulled on a couple of cords even. WOW Its definetly time to babyproof! Anyway, had to update on that fun fact!

*Just Desserts*

Well, we had a very eventful weekend. Friday night daniel and jamie came over and Jamie and I cooked breakfast for dinner. It was a feast, actually. Pancakes, eggs, bacon, biscuits and gravy! Saturday We lounged around and wasted most of our day. We went out to my parents house around 4. Sunday we had a busy day as usual. Church, dinner, small group. I decided to take my mini cheesecakes for small groups (we have pot luck dinner every week) and then I thought "well I need to take food food too" so I took fishsticks. (Adam made fun of me at the thought!) Anyway, everyone gets there, and there are JUST DESSERTS. So in other words, my fishsticks came to the rescue. Too bad there were only like 48 of them and a whole bunch of hungry people. Today was my day off (liike I work sooo much, lol) I got some cleaning done and then my $300 Walmart grocery trip was successful! (I ran out of everything at once as usual.) Anyway, we got out CSI Miami Season 4 collection in so I better go watch it with Adam.

Let me Out of HERE!

Ally went to bed at like 10 last night and the first time she woke up in the night was around 5. (this is the normal lately.) Around 8 I heard her stirring once again. I had a horrible headache, so I just prayed "God, let her go back to sleep just for a while so I can sleep this headache off". Finally around 930 my headache was gone, so I went in to her nursery because I heard her talking. She had woke up, found her binky and was just hanging out so I decided to jump in the shower. Got out, dried my hair. Now in my house, you can see the bathroom from her room. When I left the bathroom this is what I saw. . . SHE WAS PEEKING ON ME!

What We've Been up to. . .

It seems like I have been too busy to keep up with my blog. I only have like 3 faithful readers (I think) so to those 3 I apologize. Here's whats new in the Rodgers house.

We will put Ally down on her back to eat, and she always rolls over, picks her bottle up with her mouth and eats like a dog. haha. Sunday morning she actually had sucked the air out of the drop in completely so she was achieving her goal and actually getting milk out like this! It was hilarious because she decided to get up and move about while doing it!
Ally has started taking baths in her big girl duckie bathtub. (my shower is competely disgusting I know. Before I came along Adam and his roomate craig didnt believe in cleaning and now theres permanent yuck from it. We ARE working on this though!

Sleeping with daddy

Adam came home at lunch and went to check on Ally who was napping. She did have Raff's arm in her mouth sucking on it, but by the time I finished laughing and got my camera, she had pulled it out. Im telling you, this girl loves to be covered up in her sleep!
She is working SOOO hard on crawling. She does push ups, and can get ANYWHERE she wants to go, she pulls one knee, crawls a little and falls, then starts all over again.
