Chocolate milk, a door knob, and some snow!

Well, hello from snowy TN!!! Yesterday we were out for some "ice" that never happened. Today we are actually out for snow! SNOW!!! Woo hoo!! People in the South go cuckoo for snow!

This is a seriously makenosense kind of post. Lets just say this is my ADD kickin' in today.

Look what I found in the cabinet yesterday morning. Huh? I promise I didn't do it! I easily could have, but this time I didn't. Not one person would fess up. My guess is boy #2 since he was the last one to fix chocolate milk. He's denying it. Completely denying it.

Ok, this picture is our pantry door. It has looked like this for 2 solid weeks now. And, we have to close the door because if we don't, precious puppy will eat all sorts of things in there. Obviously something has messed up with the doorknob.

Oh, look!!! Here's the doorknob now!! Laying (lying?) on the kitchen counter. Let me remind you that it has been there for 2 weeks now. Anyone know of a handyman? Geesh.

Here is the snow!!! This is Pepper's first experience with snow. She LOVED it y'all. She hopped all over the yard. I think she is wanting out of the fence in this picture. She wants endless hopping I'm sure.

Aren't they cute? They'd still be out there if I'd let them. They run and run and run and run trying to eat the snow.

These are the trees behind our house. Isn't it beautiful? No ice...all snow.

This is the outside of our house. Don't houses look so pretty covered in snow?

Boy #3 didn't want any part of the snow. He stayed inside where it's warm. He's no dummy!

Here is part of the crew eating pizza for lunch. They were in heaven. And, cookies are in the oven as I type. They are so happy. They are singing my praises. And, I'm worn out! :)

And, if you have read my blog for any length of know I have some serious love connections with the cows on the property behind us. Since last Fall, we have had us some babies. I can't wait til they venture up toward my neck of the woods. I'll introduce myself.

Ok, there you have it. That has been our day thus far. I'm pooped from all the tending to of children and drying ALL the clothes that boys go through when it snows. We aren't used to all this!
Have a blessed day!

We have snow too... It does look pretty on the ground, but it is too cold for me :)

PS. I finally did a video blog and Kim and another friend inspired me to do one :)

Oh, Frannie, I just love ya! You are too stinkin cute! Your house is be-a-utiful!! Just like you! And the milk, serious waste of some good chocolate! So sad :(

And, girl, if you want some snow, I have about 7 inches to send you! I am waiting for Al Gore to come shovel it ... while he explains that whole global warming thing to me. 'Cause I just aint buying it!

Shelley said...

Beautiful! We got the ice, and then a little snow. It's amazing how beautiful everything looks when covered with a layer of white! And the milk...that is funny! That looks like something I would do too. :)

Cheryl said...

I caught myself putting the clean kitchen towels in the trashcan instead of the drawer this morning!!!

I sure wish we'd get some snow down here in Ga.

Miss you!

Cheryl said...

oh yeah, pretty sure it wasn't boy #3 cause I think you told me he doesn't like it! See...I listen!

Patty said...

What a fun day! We got sleet and a little snow but it was really nothing. ;) I love your cows! The boys looked like they were enjoying their pizza and I am impressed that you made cookies. Your home is beautiful!

I still miss you and Steph. She did mention Angela Thomas at her church in the spring. We may have to take another road trip. :))

Love you,

Love ya!!

I am LOVING the chocolate in the cabinet. Absolutely priceless.

Sharon said...

I want some snow...your pictures are great! It's been 25+ years since I've touched and played in snow! I will have to live vicariously through you and your family. You have a beautiful home!

I, too, laughed about the milk in the cupboard.

I love your Miniature Schnauzers! I have two MS also (Henry & George).

I've been playing Pathwords (on Facebook) like a madwoman. I'm easily amused. ;)
