Snowing in Bogue Chitto!

We woke up this morning to snow!!! This was the first time the girls have seen it, much less build snowmen! They weren't real sure about it at first, but then they loved it! It only snows about every 10 years this is a VERY BIG DEAL!!!
I am sitting here looking out the window and the snow is still on the ground!! Our low tonight is 21! BRRRRRR......

Brad went hunting...haha....
I enjoyed it for a little while----but tooooo cold for me----haha, I'm a Southern Girl!
Of course the downfall is the delay this will put on the house!!!
The back woods of the new house place! Isn't it pretty!

Mal Mal making snowballs!

Makayla trying to catch snowflakes on her tongue!

Nana and Popa and the dogs came over...they played in the snow with us for the second go around!
The neighbors house!

Look at all that snow! I think we got about 2 inches...It snowed for about 3 1/2 hours...

The snowman...the girls thought it was hilarious that it went for a slide!! haha

We have officially started on the house!

The dirt work has begun... The kids loved playing in it...and the dogs too...
I will keep you updated on the progress from time to time, but it is going to go slow - the weather has not been cooperating! haha!
We are building in Bogue Chitto right next door to where we live now..It is on abouth 16 acres. We can't wait! Those of you that know how long we have been planning this are probably excited too! haha

Merry Christmas with Granny!

So we were supposed to have Christmas in Gatlinburg in early Nov. but Heather and I had not shopped yet, so then we were going to have Christmas at Thanksgiving, but Heather and Josh got really really sick and could not travel 10 hours, sooooo.....we had Christmas in January....HAHA We were so glad Heather and Josh could travel to Mississippi form South Carolina, but we missed Uncle Rain and Madi---they couldn't make it..and Brad couldn't get the time off from work...but we had a good one with just the girls and josh...
Makayla Mallory and Josh!! Waithing patiently to open the presents! haha

Aunt Heather Josh and Makayla!

We Jumped into the pit together! It took me forever to get out of it! Brought back some memories!!!

We were soooo glad Grannygot to come to the party!

Mal Mal loved jumping on the Trampolines...

Christmas Morning!

Makayla wanted Little Pet Shop stuff and Mallory got a cute little Motorized Barbie Car..They also got tons of other stuff like baby dolls and Barbie Dolls and a V-Smile Game system (which Makayla loves)..They had a wonderful Christmas and it was soooo much fun to watch them!

Cookies for Santa????

A little too much help maybe!
Yes with all the hustle and bustle of Christmas, I let Makayla pick out the cookie dough from Wal-Mart! Sorry Santa--no home made cookies this year! haha

Is that Daddy in the Kitchen? Does he know how to bake cookies? HAHA

Are the cookies for Santa or Us?
