Seriously? I never blogged the Christmas card??

Wow, I can NOT believe I missed that one...

And here's the Hanukkah version

Hmmm... looks like when I captured that screen shot I had my cursor in a bad spot... Oh well.

We Built a SNOWMAN!!!

We don't get tons of snow here, and when we do it never seems to be good snowman making snow. The first winter we lived here we were able to make a snowman with the girls who lived in our apartment complex, but that was 3 years ago.

The weather man predicted we would get 1 to 2 inches of snow, and it seemed likely that it might be even less. However, when I went to bed last night we'd already gotten at least 2 inches and the grass was completely covered... When we woke up this morning, there was a good six inches of snow! Pete and I each shoveled half of our drive way, and it became QUITE apparent that this was good packing snow (not good for shoveling driveways though!!).

We bundled the kids up to build that ever elusive snowman!! Leah and Elijah weren't much help, but Hannah and I built one :)

Paranormal Activity at Our House

I posted this on FB last night, but thought I'd share on the blog as well.

Still behind!

My house is looking great, but I'm WAY behind on my getting my photos uploaded. Heck, I haven't even moved the Christmas pics from the laptop yet... Hopefully soon.

Happy 2010!

I can't believe I haven't posted in over a month! The holidays are crazy, for sure. We had a lovely Thanksgiving and Hanukkah, then went to Oklahoma (via Kansas for a quick 'hi' to the cousins) for Christmas. We celebrated New Year's London time (6pm here) and had a fun little party, and everyone was able to go to be at a decent hour! Pete is currently watching the Cotton Bowl, live and in person at the "Jerry Dome". He'll be back tomorrow and we'll head home. The kids will miss the first day back to school, but I don't think they'll mind too much :)

Then it's back to our regularly scheduled programming, school for the kids, teaching for Pete, and domestic chores for myself.

I'm not one to write real New Year's resolutions, but before we left I decided to get my house in order (clean!) and keep it that way. I spent the week before we left doing just that. I hope to keep with the system I started (it's supposed to take 21 days to create a habit), and spend less time goofing off on the computer :)

Happy New Year to all!! Oh, and just so you know all the cool kids are calling this year "twenty-ten" (as opposed to two thousand ten).
