With December came LOTS of Snow

As December comes to a end so is our HUGE piles of snow and ice that are piled up everywhere around us.. We had a very white Christmas here in WV this year.. It used to be the big question wether we would see any snow in the month of December here or not.. Now the big question the last 2 years is-HOW MUCH SNOW will be getting this month.. My daughter missed so much school for snow days last year her school had to resort to Saturday school all spring.. So hoping that in 2011 ole Man Winter will take it easy on us.. We have probably had snow covering our ground for over 2 weeks or longer now.. We got another huge wave of it Christmas Day night into the 26th and some of 27th.. On top of the already ice packed snow we already had I would say we were working on a foot.. hehe.. I think everyone around here is getting just a little bit more used to driving on the snow then they ever have.. ME-naaaaa. I still stay put when the roads are covered.. I dont feel like sliding off the side of a cliff.. lol
My best friend's daughter from Nashville, Lexi, got to stay with us a night this week. I was sooooo glad.. It meant Kandis had a sleigh riding buddy and it wasnt me.. They had a blast.. I didnt even brave it past the door taking pictures-the wind was blowing so hard and U cant really tell but it was POURING the snow at the same time.. burrrr!!!! Of course with sleigh riding comes all the layers of clothes and boots 1st.. hahaThe girls didnt seem to mind the cold-wind-or snow at all.. They braved it outside for over a hour or longer.. Kandis had to show Lexi how safe the BIG hill by our house was before she would make the journey down with her.. BUT after 1 trip down a lone-Lexi joined right in... See-taking pictures from the inside of my house-hehe

And again-I dont think my sweetie minds all this snow and snow days from school..

1 Birthday and 1 Birth

Its been a very busy couple of months here in WV.. Seems like when the November and December months are here I am busy with school stuff. I have not got to scrapbook in months. Planning on catching back up with that here very soon. SO I am falling behind fast.. lol Christmas will be here now in 5 days. We have snow on the ground and more coming down as I speak.. my daughter has enjoyed more then a few snow days off of school already..
Yesterday-December 19, 2010 I became the mother of a teenager.. SO hard to believe that my baby girl turned 13 years old.. I surprised her with a party. We had a houseful of family and friends.. It was the 1st time I have ever pulled something over on her like that.. It is hard when she is soo nosey.. lol I had foil balloons-a birthday cake-decorations-unwrapped birthday gifts-plus all her unwrapped christmas gifts all in my small walk in closest.. I did it though.. She was so happy...A lady we know from Belfry, Ky named Brittany Adkins (!/profile.php?id=1165995814) made us the wonderful cake.. She is now our offical cake maker.. she makes some wonderful cakes.. And they are not just pretty but taste amazing..
My brother has officially made me a AUNT. I have lots of neices of nephews on my husbands side of the family but the only grandchild on our side of the family was my daughter.. We have been blessed with a new baby boy to the Thompson family. He was born on November 30, 2010. His name is Jaydyn James Thompson.. He is the most precious thing I have laid eyes on in 13 years.. hehe.. Me and my family are in baby heaven.. We all keep taking our turns holding him even if sometimes it is just to see him sleep.. ha! He just turns 3 weeks today. He was 7lbs and was 19 inches long. My brother James and his girlfriend, Kim are totally in love with this little handsome fella.. So we have got the best gift ever for Christmas this year-a new baby to love ...
