Phil Says "Six More Weeks of Winter!"

Phil's official forecast as read February 2nd, 2009 at sunrise at Gobbler's Knob:

Hear Ye Hear Ye

On Gobbler's Knob this glorious Groundhog Day, February 2nd, 2009

Punxsutawney Phil, Seer of Seers, Prognosticator of all Prognosticators

Awoke to the call of President Bill Cooper

And greeted his handlers, Ben Hughes and John Griffiths

After casting a joyful eye towards thousands of his faithful followers,

Phil proclaimed that his beloved Pittsburgh Steelers were World Champions one more time

And a bright sky above me

Showed my shadow beside me.

So 6 more weeks of winter it will be.

Doesn't he usually see his shadow???

I cannot believe that we've already gone through January! Time is just movin' right along & very quickly!

Yesterday was my daddy's birthday - he turned 65 (hope ya don't mind me sharing daddy!!). Emma & I spent the day with him and my mother to celebrate. My sister and her husband came over for cake and coffee, too! Yesterday was also my BIL's birthday as well - and a coworker's, too! Michael already had plans with friends - I mean there was a big game on or something yesterday! ;) I'm kidding - yes, I know what game was yesterday! The game didn't really get too exciting until the very end and I missed seeing the Boss b/c mother & I were giving Miss Emma a bath. Was he good?

It's beautiful outside today, but another cold front is coming, which I guess agrees with the 6 more weeks of winter. I hope it's a pretty weekend b/c we have outdoor plans for the weekend.

I worked a bit this weekend on Emma's scrapbook - I haven't been spending enough time on it at all - so this weekend I also bought a new set of templates. I figured if I had some new layouts to work with I would be more into it. I've got quite a bit of her first year done. I was going to try to do a book for every year, but I don't know if I'll keep to that, so I though I could do two years at a time maybe. Anyway - that's what her first book will definitely be anyway. After that who knows - maybe I'll just try to do one family album per year - Pamela does that & it seems to work great! I also put up the February desktop yesterday, too. I thought the colors from the poncho & hat mother made for Emma fit nicely with the template!
