IT'S SPRING or at lease I want it to be

Is it just me, or does it seem like once Christmas is over it should officially be spring.
I am longing for spring so bad right now. It is killing me!

Years ago when Emer was 2 we were in the car driving Samantha to school (kindergarten to be exact) and Emer started to cry. I asked her what was wrong and she said "momma, why are the flowers dead?" Okay.. she was 2.. Why was she asking me such a grownup question? It was heart breaking really. Then I told her that the flowers and trees and all kinds of other things needed to go away for the winter so that when spring came back they would be like new and they would be so pretty.. She still wasn't convinced that they would ever come back. So I told Johanna about Emer and her sadness and she (Johanna) got Emer this really cute book. Titled IT'S SPRING! What a great book. It is a precious moments book that has pop ups and everything. To this day we read it and we are always so excited to see spring coming back into our lives!

I think the main reason that I am really looking forward to spring this year is we got a camping trailer! YES we did it. It is not new unless you think 1971 is new.. HAHA... It is in really good shape and we are so excited to have it for all of our adventures we are going to have this spring, summer and fall and maybe even the winter because the furnace in it ROCKS!
I am looking forward to going to the 240 and building our house and I am looking forward to the Murphy reunion and having a trailer that we can all sleep in. But most of all, I am looking forward to being with my kids in the warmth and just enjoying life!
