Ok, once again I know these pictures are a little late. This is the snow we had back at the beginning of January.
Here is my "snowman". I think the temperature that day was 8 degrees!

Here is Carley trying to make a snowball, but the snow was so fine it wouldn't pack (for my Texas friends that means "stick together")

Carley making a snow angel!

Better Late than Never...

As I mentioned in my last post, I still had the pictures from Christmas on my camera. Well due to the fact we are expecting 7 inches of snow today and I might need my camera for some "snow fun" pictures, I decided I had better take the time to upload my pictures. With all of that being said, here are some pictures from Christmas morning.

I am still alive

Let me just start off by saying I had totally forgotten how busy a stay at home mom's life could be (note my last posting being Dec.31). I had a delusional thought that once I quit teaching and stayed home that I would spend my days crafting and blogging and talking for hours with old friends...WRONG!!!!!!!!!!! I have been so busy that I can't even believe that we have been back in Tennessee for 1 month. Of course I spent the first few weeks unpacking and getting everything somewhat organized. Past that it has been spending a day shopping with an old friend, making curtains for my kitchen and den, visiting sick and shut-ins with Brad, making vinyl letters for my wall with my cricut (the absolute best invention ever!), having all the elders and deacons over for dinner (40+ people), spending about 2 hours on homework every night...including the weekend (first grade may kill me and Carley both), and turning the big 3-0. Not to mention my pictures from Christmas are still on my camera, what does that say. I will say I am starting to see light at the end of the tunnel. I spent the day cleaning out my dresser drawers and closet and exercised (something much needed to get off my 10 lb winter coat). I have also been planning a get away for our anniversary. On Feb. 4 me and Brad will be married 12 years...That is just CRAZY. We are going to spend the night at the opryland hotel and MawMaw and PawPaw are coming to stay with the kids (did I mention how great it is to have that option again). I know it is a splurge, but we need it. It has been about a year since we had an overnight date by ourselves, and it is much needed! I will try to keep you posted and hopefully one day get up some pictures of my crafting.
