this is our drive-way!

this is noon that same day! usually it would be gone!

my little palm tree! snow on a palm tree! what the?

this is our back yard (well our mini back yard)! my poor trees. i never thought that i would see the snow is part of the reason that we moved here! if you all have been watching the news it's nuts, they where even getting snow in vegas and all of calafornia! they had to shut all the air ports down. and schools......which made jesson and i laugh. it was only like 3-5 inches but the county here doesn't even own snow plows! hahaha! i have to admit that i like it, it seems a little more like christmas!

12 Days of Christmas


1 Embarrassing moment: well i have to say that i have had a lot of embarrassing moments, but this one i remember. my mom sister and i went shopping and we walk into the store and it was slick, and yes i did the whole flying arms swinging dance and fell straight to the ground. instead of my mom and sister helping me up, they just stepped over me and started laughing as they walked away and other people were walking around and over me.

2 Best Friends: Jesson Hoopes, Dani and all my other blogging buds!

3 Things I buy regularly: lotion, movies, and popcorn

4 Places I want to go: Hawaii, Italy, Alaska, Paris, New Zealand

5 Goals for the upcoming year: to finish my weight loss goal, go on a vacation with jesson and not to wyoming, maybe become a runner, and save money.

6 Things most people don't know about me: my second toe is longer than all my other toes, i am a huge "hills fan", and i have been soda/pop free for 4 months.

7 Things I would never say: i say a lot.

8 Things I love about the Christmas Season: I love giving to those less fortunate, i love the music, the love, and just the whole meaning.

9 Things I say to my kids: i don't have kids....but jesson and axel here the words "be quiet" a lot.

Music (pianos)

pi·an·o [pee ánnō]n (plural pi·an·os) musical instrument with keyboard: a large musical instrument consisting of a keyboard fixed to a wooden case containing metal wires stretched across a frame. It is played by pressing the keys, each of which is attached to a small hammer that strikes one or more of the wires to sound a note.
it has been such a long time since i have played a i figured since i cleaned it i could just play it for a bit, and the people who own this great piano was not home! who would think that such thing could be so beautiful! i know i'm crazy but i love the music and especially at Christmas time!
