Let It Snow!!!

By Friday, the area I live in and most of the South East will be under a Winter Storm Watch!  I love snow and I am hoping we will get the 5-9 inches they are calling for.  We have no plans other than church this weekend so it would be great to hang out and play in the snow with the kids!  I am also planning on some old fashioned stove top hot chocolate and I found a great recipe @ Southern Plate.  My husband went out and bought some sleds for the kiddos so I know he is planning on having fun also.  Tomorrow, after work I have to go to the grocery and get a few things.  I am sure it will be crowded.  I am going to share a few pics I have found from the past winter weather fun.

This is from Jan. 2009 Ice Storm

More from the Ice Storm
We can do without ice, but we love snow:)

  This has been a few years ago.  It is probably the only snowman my kids have got to build and it wasn't long until the snow melted that day.  We just don't get snow here like we used to.

Here is our house, I love the look of snow on the roof-tops.
Stay warm everyone, I can't wait for some Hot Chocolate:)

13th anniversary and The Harlem Globetrotters

On January 11th, Jimmy and I celebrated 13 years of marriage.  We usually plan a nice dinner date out and have some quiet time alone.  This year ~ The Harlem Globetrotters happened to be coming to town on the night of our anniversary.  Sarah, our 10 year old, decided that this would be a perfect date for ALL of us to go out and celebrate.  So that is what we did, and we had the best time!  We LOVE basketball and so do our kids so this was an exciting time for us.  A lot has changed over the past 13 years and 3 kids later, but we wouldn't change a thing:)

Christmas Catch Up

It has been so long since I have blogged---and I have so many things that I need to blog about!  I am going to go back to Christmas and catch up from there!!!  SORRY!!

This is the best picture of the kids on Christmas morning, notice Nate had just woke up and was not happy to be getting his picture made!  We have a tradition of giving the kids new pajamas on Christmas Eve.

He is happy now--this expression is priceless!!!

Lovin the CD player that was a surprise from Santa

She was so funny on Christmas morning, she had to get a picture made with each gift.

I hope everyone is having a blessed 2010 so far!!!
