Snow Daze

Well, the south saw it's first snow storm this year.....if you can call it snow, it was really more of an ice storm. The big difference between here and Maryland is that it is now Monday and the last bit of precipitation happened mid day Saturday and I have yet to see a snow plow. The only melting has been compliments of the sun. Needless to say, schools were closed on Monday which meant I had to stay home. It honestly felt like I was playing hookie with my kids all day.

Unfortunately, it was one of those storms that was too icy and hard for the kids to play outside so Kylie was disappointed. Another one of those "No fair" moments in the tragic life of a 6 year old. She now wants to get her ears pierced again which is fine except for the drama that accompanies this desire. Everything is based around the fact that earrings make people pretty and she just wants to be pretty again.......I am really not ready for her as a teenager, please everyone start praying for me now, I will need all I can get! Though it would be nice if earrings were all people needed, right?

Now for the good news of the week!!! We booked our first ever cruise to the Bahamas!!! The Johannes' and the Jarrett's will be going on a 5 day cruise to the Bahamas in September! I am already thinking of what I am going to wear ;). We tried to talk the Basham unit into coming with us, but with sea sickness being a factor, we will try another type of vacation with them!

That is all for now! I need to post pictures of my jewelry I have made, and will do that soon!


  1. Awww a cruise, how exciting. I want to fit in your suitcase!

  2. Sure you can hang in mine and I will hang in yours for Disney.
