Jack Frost Hits Kentucky!

So, as many of you have probably seen on the news, last Monday night Kentucky got hit pretty hard with an ice storm! We had freezing rain falling constantly for about 24 hours! As a result Tuesday night we lost power and Wednesday morning our water went off as well. We had an interesting couple of days relying on our emergency supplies and seeing our whole town basically shut down. The temperatures stayed in the low teens and with no power or heat..this can get pretty chilly. Luckily, we had our gas fireplace so we were able to stay warm! Trees all around had so much thick ice on them, that they were spliting and breaking. We had some neighbors that had trees crash through the windows of their house and break them. Yesterday (Friday) we finally had our power and water restored and we celebrated by taking nice hot showers!!! We hope that the ice will melt quickly and that we won't have to go through something like this anytime soon again! On the fun side of things, we took advantage of the time Steve had work off and played games with friends, did puzzles by candlelight, talked and played with Roscoe.

We are in love.....

Beware of Roscoe Snowbeard!
Yellow snow anyone?....

Wait...I think I saw a gecko do this. I almost got my eye!

Today Steve and I had so much fun playing with Roscoe in the snow and taking him for his first walk. He is such a good little guy and is having fun with us too! We all took a group nap together today and Roscoe snored the loudest!

A Very Merry Christmas!

We enjoyed such a happy Christmas season this year! Steve and I had fun decorating our house, going to Christmas parties , being with friends and Steve and I had our very first Christmas morning in our own house this year!! (we were in this house last year, but traveled to St. Louis for Christmas day) Steve's parents came to visit from CA and spend Christmas with us! We had a great time going caroling, shopping and lunch in Glendale, watching Christmas movies, doing puzzles, having Christmas Eve dinner, opening presents on Christmas morning, going to Nashville to see the Rockettes show, and of course eating all the yummy food that was always around! Hope you all had a great Christmas too!
