here we go again...

On Tuesday, the day of the snow, Bobby and I braved the roads and headed to Wilmington. And truly the roads were not that bad. I had a dentist appointment Wednesday that I didn't want to miss. I have been having some pain and wanted to get it checked out. Well, I found out that I have to have all 4 wisdom teeth taken out, so we will be going back and forth to Wilmington for the next couple of weeks.

Anyway, while we were there, Bobby had a great time as usual. He spent some quality time on his favorite toys...big Papa's tractors. And we went to the mall to get our free trees with my dad and Bobby got to ride the carousel! A happy boy to have the whole thing to himself! And my mom and I even got to spend some time together shopping...a rarity for me:)

Snow Day!

Last week we had our first (and only that I can remember) snow day! It started snowing during the night and continued for most of the day. When Bobby woke up and saw the snow he wasn't quite sure what to make of it. But once we got outside he was SO excited. Although getting an almost two year old and myself suited up was no easy task. I'm not sure that I could live up north. But as I said, Bobby had a fabulous time in the snow and was not happy with me when I made him come inside.

But once Sam got home, we went back out with all the neighborhood kids and had some more fun. Bobby and I even tried sledding, making snowballs and all the other good stuff you do in the snow. I don't think that Bobby even noticed the cold or wet...as he was shivering and telling me that he was NOT cold and NOT ready to go inside:) It was a great experience for Bobby and hopefully he'll see snow again before he is 10!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

We had a very busy Christmas this year. We were in Wilmington and spent our time with all of our family and friends. Unfortunately I didn't take a ton of pictures this year, but we still had a great time. We were able to visit with all of the Foys, Longs and Godwins...and Sam and I even got a date night squeezed in:) That is a rarity, so it was great to be able to have some time to ourselves...thanks Mummu and Papa.

Bobby got a stomach bug at the beginning of the week, and I was afraid that he wouldn't be feeling very well for Christmas, but he perservered and was a great little trooper. Staying up late and sleeping in late...nice for me:)

And yesterday we went and spent New Year's Day with the Longs of Kernersville. The boys all had a great time together, as they always do, and it was great to see everyone.

We hope that everyone had a great holiday season...love to all!
