Blizzard ’09

OK, so it’s not so much a blizzard, but it is the first snow we have seen on our house… and my second day off school in a row.

Here is the view from the front door and the backdoor while it was snowing.  I didn’t want to go out there.

Our little snow-capped home.  Happy winter!

Ice Storm ’09

Here are some pictures from the ice storm.  What else was I going to do on my snow day?  It is supposed to snow tonight, and our WKU classes got cancelled.  Yay!  Maybe we will have more pictures tomorrow.

This is is one of our little trees in our little backyard.

This is the large tree that hangs over our bedroom.  There are several trees down around town, so Chad is really worried about this big guy.

The bushes in the front- they look pretty.

Grassicles!

Brrrrr… even the garden flag is frozen.

Although it is nice to have the day off school, I don’t like the fact that AT&T has no service right now.  I’m not ignoring your call!

Christmas time

Chad and I feel so blessed to have our house.  We love living here.  We have really been looking forward to decorating it for Christmas, so as soon as we got back after Thanksgiving, we hauled out all the decorations.  It was lots of fun, and now our house feels more festive.  Last year after Christmas, we bought a bunch of stuff on clearance.  Every time I pulled something else out of a bag or unwrapped it from tissue paper, it was like opening a present.

Last year, Chad got me a stocking with my initial on it in rhinestones.  We got it out and hung it up on the mantle. It looked so lovely, but then I realized we won’t have matching stockings.  The big fuzzy red ones are going to look funny next to mine.  Oh well, I thought, we’ll just have to look for something close.  Later, as I was looking through our clearance items, I pulled out another bag and low and behold, there was a stocking that matched mine with a rhinestone “C.”  

We love sitting in our home with no lights on but the lights from the tree. Here are some pictures of our decorations.

Slideshow from Papaw’s funeral

Here is the slideshow that Chad and I made for my grandfather’s visitation.  I think the family enjoyed it a lot.  The funeral was very nice (sad, but nice).  His friend, Elmer, spoke and shared about my grandpa’s faith in God.  It was a blessing to hear that confirmation that he loved the Lord and is now spending eternity with Him.  If you love the Lord, let everyone know.  Then, when it is your time to be called home, you will give your loved ones great peace and be able to give an account to Jesus of all the work you’ve done for His kingdom.
