January Snow

It snowed here again yesterday! This is the second biggest snow that we've had in 6 weeks! It never does that here anymore. Now when I was a little girl, it did. I can remember being out of school for weeks at a time, but it hasn't snowed this much in years!! Don't get me wrong...I love it! Here are a few shots that I took outside this afternoon. They are calling for more snow on Tuesday and again Friday and Saturday. Yay!!! Just as long as it doesn't snow my Super Bowl Party out on Sunday.....

Outdoor Wednesday

It's still freezing here in the south!! I don't ever remember it being this cold for this long. Today's pictures for Outdoor Wednesday are of frozen water, of course. This is our fountain at Town Hall. You can see that it's definitely working, but the water around it is frozen. It almost looks like bubbles! The other frozen water is at my dentist's office. It's hard to tell in this picture, but it is frozen over. This is the view from the chair, where you can watch the squirrels and birds play and feed, but that day they couldn't get any water. The squirrels were running across the frozen tooth chasing each other. It looked like they were ice skating!! For more outdoor pics, please visit Susan at A Southern Daydreamer.

Today is my Mama's birthday. She is 75 years old. She probably doesn't want people to know, but I don't think she looks like it, so I feel like I can say it. Me and my sister are taking her out to lunch today to celebrate and give her her gifts. I can't say what we got her because she reads my blog and it wouldn't be a surprise, so sorry have to wait until lunch.

Happy Birthday Travis

Today is my son Travis' 22nd birthday. I can't believe how fast time as flown!! It was 22 years ago today that he was born in the middle of a major snow storm. I went into labor during the storm and David's mama rode with us to the hospital and timed my contractions, while his daddy followed us in his car, in case ours got stuck. Luckily it didn't! Then my parents and sister and her husband arrived from out of town. They had a 1 1/2 hour trip, but they did make it in the snow. He has grown into such a fine young man and I am so proud of him. I look forward to what the future holds for him and our family!

Well our new year started off with a bang. My niece and her husband announced that they are expecting a baby. She is due in July and they are so excited. Needless to say that we are too! We think it's a girl, and of course, my sister has already started buying things for "her"! This will be such a blessing when "she" gets here and we are all praying that everything goes wonderful for them. So it's definitely been a Happy New Year around here!
