S-N-O-W!!!

8 Jan

We just THOUGHT we knew snow when we had a White Christmas!

J2 went to Arizona for the National Championship football game and missed the biggest snow our city has ever seen! (At least it is the biggest snow WE have ever seen in our city!)

Ruler

That’s right!  6 inches!

Sledding!

Enough for sledding!

Couldn’t even see the roads.

After a hard day’s work we’d made a whole FAMILY of snowmen!

This was a snow to remember!

Our most special friend

7 Jan

Miss J is Boo’s godmother. She is, without a doubt, our most special family friend. She was in Bible Study with J2 and me when we first met, and later read in our wedding. Now, as Boo’s godmother, she is with our family for most special occasions, especially the ones involving Boo. Like….birthdays…she has never missed one yet! And she lives two hours away!

The tradition is that we go to the Build a Bear Workshop and eat cupcakes!

THIS year, Boo turned Five. When J3 turned Five, he got to go to New York City. (Nevermind this was to tag along with us for a conference, nonetheless, he got a fantastic birthday trip out of the deal.) Like any smart-minded girl, Boo seized the opportunity of having a brand-new American Girl from Santa to decide that for her birthday she needed to take her doll to the American Girl Store…in New York City!

Of course Miss J came along!

(Note the snow! It had just left NYC – little did we know it was headed to our house!)

We did all the usual sights.

Which were especially beautiful at Christmastime.

And her doll came along to all activites, of course!

A memorable time was had by all! But made most special by Miss J!

White Christmas

28 Dec

Christmas brings a lot of fun traditions and new surprises to our home each year.

One of the most special this year was seeing Boo play the part of Mary in the Christmas play at preschool.

Made especially fun since she really “gets” the nativity story this year most of all:

But the biggest surprise of all: was our white Christmas!
