Day 51..A Nice Ending!!

You know those days when you just want to get into bed early..throw the covers over your head and wait until tomorrow? Well it was one of those days...BUT.....the Tar Heels were playing those Dookies! And I really thought a Carolina loss was going to be the icing on the what a nice surprise..Carpet is coming is a wreck..but Charlie says..."Go Heels"!!!

I took a few photos of the apple of my eye! She was actually pleasant while I took a few shots! Maybe it was my Valentine's present!

Striking a pose..

Cute conversation hearts!

Showing Toby "snow" much love!

Love, Sweet, Love!

 Love is all you need!!

Let it Snow, Let it Snow, Let it Snow!!

Well just as they predicted, we got the biggest snow storm since my college days! I remember fondly getting out of school for several days and doing nothing but playing in the snow! And staying true to form, we did just that yesterday! Here is a little recap:
Toby and Charlie liked the snow, but DID NOT like breaking through the thin layer of ice. Too bad, I didn't take a  picture of Toby trying to pee at 3:45 in the morning, with big drifts in front of the door! Thanks to my sweet husband for shoveling them a path!

Abby and Claire enjoying our little hill!

Onto bigger and better hills!

 Here we go!

 Absolutely beautiful!

 More sledding, a few pushes were needed at times!

 Lucy enjoying the tube!

Catina joining in on the fun!

Abby and Lucy double up!

 Love the smiles!

Claire boggieboarding it down the hill!

It just kept snowing! Such beautiful flakes!


Catherine enjoying the snow!

 Oh, and who can resist steam rolling?
 And snowball fighting!

Don't let those sweet smiles fool you! They would pelt anyone given the chance! Even a lady with a baby!

See what I mean! (I looked pregnant since I  kept stuffing my camera into my jacket while trying to keep it dry!)

This tube was the hit of the sledding adventure!

 A beautiful sunset to end the day!


 Night fall!!

The Visit that almost wasn't!

I was really worried we might not have a Santa visit this year. Abby was fine going with other kids, but she did not want to go alone.. Well, as it turned out... everyone was busy or out of town and she was going to have to make the visit solo.... cue the whining... and refusal... But somehow, once she saw this jolly face, her fears melted and I was able to catch a few shots.

Giving Santa the vital info...

A little Santa humor!


All smiles... The magic of Christmas continues!

All At Sea

I know two of my friends who will truly like this...I heard it the other day and it just spoke to me... how relaxing to be by the sea...especially as we move into the colder months!
