I'm so sad it is coming to an end. I've been SO tired the past two days that's why I've been away from the blog. I've been trying to rest! So, I really was quite wrong in my previous post when I said I doubt that we would have any accumulating snow. I was VERY wrong. I never thought I would see "Blizzard Warning" on our local TV station. Yep, that's right...LOTS of ice and snow. I think the wind got up to like 50 or 60 mph. Crazy. It did make for a pretty white Christmas :) Hubby and I are VERY pleased with how our car handled in the weather. It was our first winter with it and for those of you who know me, may know that I have bad anxiety in a car with any weather condition. Though I didn't go many places, we didn't have any trouble but saw SO many that did. I felt awful for those having to push their cars :( Here are the pics I snapped on Christmas Eve & Christmas Day ....
See what I mean...LOTS of snow...lots of drift...
Elton is OBSESSED with the snow. He would play in it all day if we would let him! I'm hoping to get some video of him! I probably should have taken some with the snow was so fluffy and not as compact!
Christmas eve, hubby and I ran some presents to the parent's house of a friend of ours. They usually have a party every Christmas eve. We were planning to just drop in but people actually started arriving when we were there so we ended up staying about an hour or so.
hubby had fun with my camera on Christmas eve. I actually have about 100 pictures. He learned how to turn the flash off and on and mess with the settings. I picked a few..
Kristen and myself...
I thought it was hilarious he had Tyler pose by his truck.. I thought the camera did good considering it was about 8pm and dark outside.
Micah, Me & Paige
The girlies were so funny
Here are a few pics of me in the snow. There was no avoiding stuck cars in the background haha!
I don't really think this shows how deep the snow was on me..I probably look a bit shorter..but it did come up like mid calf... THANK goodness for my rain/snow/water boots!!!
Christmas morning :)
My parents got Brent a Razorback blanket and it is the softest blanket ever.. Elton immediately took it over.. I'm currently trying to as well ;)
Baby M got some sweet things!
My parents got Baby M his first Christmas book. It's from Hallmark and it's awesome because it records! So hubby and I read into the book and as the page turns it plays our voice reading the book. Love it!
us :) that's hubby's new digital picture frame my parents got him. They got it so he could have pictures of Baby M displaying on his desk at work :o)
We were blessed to have gotten some great things! We got a new set of pots and pans (the ones we picked before the wedding were sold out by the time the wedding came and we never got those new 3 years ago). We are also getting to pick out a new video camera :) Perfect gift with the baby coming!
Do you all know of any video cameras you like or don't like?? We are in the market for one! We have a few months we can spend deciding!
We are doing more Christmas this week with Brent's parents are his mom had a truck that didn't make it in with some of her gifts.
Here we are on Christmas day before going to Brent's dad's house....the pics we took in front of the tree were a little off as my mom isn't use to having to look into the little hole instead of the LCD screen.
I'm NOT a fan of this pic.. I look plumpish or something...that is normal, right?....but I still like it :)
I snapped some pics while in the car.. This is target...
This is Christmas night. We got to spend more time with family :)
Tatum playing in her new tub?
her battery operated mouse owns the tub...
sweet, sleeping Baby Beaux
Brent's mom took and framed these pics of the kiddos.. so sweet
Taylor was very into the Santa Claus movie with Tim Allen
My mom gave the girls fun shower caps and soap
I hope you all had a VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!! :) I have a few more Christmas posts of projects and what not. Also, TONS of recipes of things my mom made that I'll be posting on Sugar & Spice. I finally got the banana bread on! :)
