SNOWED-OUT IN LOUISIANA



OMG!!!!! I so wanted to surprise my boys Christmas Eve with a ski trip, but it just wasn't working out coordinating work schedules, etc. BUT OH MY GOODNESS, its SNOWING in Louisiana!!!!!! Its so beautiful. I woke up about 5am to see the snow but at that time it wasn't accumulating on the ground. I tried to wake Justin up to see it (not knowing if it would last) but he wasn't real interested at 5am. He was very excited when leaving for school today in the SNOW, but it was dark so my pictures didn't come out. Oh why are they in school, this is perfect backdrop for that Christmas Picture. Ha ha. Dane just called to say, he thought he might get Rained-out today at work, but they showed up for work & were sent home for a SNOW-OUT, first time ever. All of you moms with little ones not in school-get out there & take some pictures. I'm calling Jade to create a SNOW kit today-i just hope it lasts until Jus gets home!!!!!!

On another note-please remember the soldiers when sending your Christmas cards; This is a Great idea! When doing your Christmas cards this year, take one card and send it to this address. If we pass this on and everyone sends one card, think of how many cards these wonderful special people who have sacrificed so much would get.

I took lots of pictures!!! After my CCL class of Top 8 of 2008, I might have to change one of my pictures. I put my layout together with 6 weeks still left in the year. This definitely has to be on the Top 8 list!!!

I went out and played in the snow all by myself. I even built my first snowman ever. Enjoy it while last!

FYI cards sent to that address will be thrown out. You can use the Red Cross to send cards, but the deadline has passed. If you want to help our heroes, consider http://soldiersangels.org or http://soldiersangelsla.org

Keep up the good blogging!
