More Snow

This has been our snowiest winter since we've lived in Nashville. I LOVED it!





Our snow girl.



I love how everything looks after a snowfall. Every branch is covered in white.

Warming up with a cup of hot cocoa. Actually, in Jude's case it's just warm cocoa.

Christmas Party

We had a Christmas party last month and I'm just now posting the pics from it because a friend of mine had my memory card until recently.


We had a good game of Bandu. Unfortunately, my tower was the first to fall:(


The winner! Congratulations Michelle.

My 26th Birthday






John helped me take some pictures of myself. I've done it before using the tripod, but it takes a lot longer to get everything set up and make sure you're in the right spot, so I told John I'd get everything set up if he'd just point and shoot. They turned out pretty well I think. I don't have many pictures of myself since I'm always the one behind the camera. It's nice to have a day where I can get some self portraits.

Jude and John Playing Dance Central on the Kinect

This is a video clip of John and Jude on Christmas Day trying out the new Dance Central game on the Xbox. Jude just jumped right on in while John was playing and he still asks to play the dance game everytime we turn the Xbox on.

Pics from Pennsylvania






Ashley. My newest niece.



Jude loved playing with Chloe. They were so cute together. Jude kept giving her hugs and kisses.






Like my outfit? It's a little mismatched, but it kept me warm.


Sledding down the driveway


Jude doesn't have any boots since there isn't a huge need for them here in TN. So instead of buying new boots to wear for only a day, he used his cousin Chloe's rain boots and we duct taped the top to keep the snow out. It worked, but we felt a little redneck:)

Jude loved going for rides on the tractor with Daddy

Sassy the horse.



The kiddos playing with their new toys.

Jude and Claire with Great, Great Aunt Kay. We make sure to visit her every time we're up that way. She's getting very old. Jude's face is because he's afraid of a stuffed chicken that sings the chicken dance and moves around. Claire's face is because she's afraid of Aunt Kay. Such brave children I have.
