What's this- A blog?

Well I have no excuse for this :) I could not believe the date I blogged last was in January. I am quite embarrassed and I suppose busy as well. I would love to say I would get back on track tomorrow, but no promises here. Tomorrow I leave for the beach and then 4 very big letters- CRCT. For those of you that live in Georgia and teach that would be the state mandated test that I just so happen to be in charge of at our school this year- no pressure right! So, after that back to blogging! Free Signature Generator

Ice Ice Baby

One of the perks in being education are the long holiday breaks. Tonight marked 21 days without our students. I was getting ready to head back to school tomorrow when I heard the news, Georgia was expected a winter storm.

Now, Earle had been trying to warn me about his storm for a few days-("You know he does the weather report at work"), but I did not think it would have a big effect on us.

The way everyone was running around the past few days you would think that we were expecting this...

Just in case the entire city headed to Wal-Mart to stock up.
As of right now it has snowed all of 5 minutes, but no school tomorrow regardless. Let's see what happens!

Pictures to Come

About 3 months ago I started looking into getting a new camera. It all started with an Internet search that led to me asking questions to a 2nd cousin of mine about which camera she would suggest.

It just so happened that she had bought a camera in October, and it was now needing another home because she happen to have two of the same one.

Well, Santa Claus happened to get wind of this and it showed up under the tree Christmas morning. It took me a few minutes to figure out how to turn it on, but I am slowly learning.

I'm sure you will see several pictures of the dogs as I practice with my new camera since they are the only ones that will let me practice right now.

Here are a few that I worked on today!

Oh Christmas Tree


"Hey, does the Christmas tree look like it is leaning to you?"

"Yeah, I noticed that too."

"Guess it will be alright?"

She's Eleven!

Happy 11th Birthday McKenney!

About 8 years ago this little stinker came into my life! She was about 3 at the time with the vocabulary of a 6 year old. I was given the opportunity to babysit her and her brother one night that turned into several! So many of my college memories involve McKenney and her crazy and loving family. God even opened up the doors for me to spend an entire summer at their house with them. They all played a major impact on who I am today. So, happy birthday and I miss you!

Where did you get that outfit from?

Well, if pictures could talk the ones below would have lots to say!

Saturday was a fun filled day that involved many different outfits if you will.

My family headed up to Stone Mountain to experience "Snow Mountain" Brooke, Kristy, Jessica, Mom, Dad and I all made the trip.

From going skiing before I know that the snow requires many different outfits and gear. As you can see we had that part covered!

Once we were all dressed we headed up the mountain for some tubing time.

After going down the mountain a few times we decided to go play in the snow for a while.

We had a great time at the park and even more fun was to come.

That same night I ditched the snow gear and grabbed my good ole tacky sweater for Mel's Tacky Christmas Sweater Party.

It was an entire day full of laughter, snow, memories, and many different outfits!

Brace yourself for what is to come.....

I warned you. Last night I retreated back to my childhood and played a little bit of dress up. There are several reasons I have this outfit on.

Well to begin, at school I volunteered to work car riders this morning. In case you have not looked at the temperature lately it was about 30 degrees this morning.

I am also joining in on some family fun this weekend, and we are going to Snow Mountain to go tubing, so I asked Earle to get the ski stuff down from the attic.

It also just so happened that he brought me home a prize last night for my graduation from school. He got me this hat to keep me warm at school.

Well it only took a few minutes before I had everything on and could not stop laughing. I had to show it to someone so I texted it to my boss with the captain "Ready for car riders!"

I decided to leave the goggles at home in fear of scaring 100 elementary students and their parents this morning t 7:15. Decided it might be a good ideas to put on a little warmer shirt this morning and the hat made an appearance as well.

It was freezing this morning, but at least I got to sport my new snow gear!
