scout winter camps...

This group of pics is from the Klondike that we just went on last weekend. Very Cold and a good time had by all attending!

This group is from our December overnight camp-out in Farragut State Park. Luckily, on this one I had to go home for the night and sleep in my own bed... (long story)

So Christmas is over but I had to post my funny family nativity scene. It is always so hilarious and cute and it is one of our favorite traditions.

this is real


Yesterday I read a book called the Moonraker's Bride and it was really good and my husband could not handle not having my attention and kept taking ridiculous pictures of me and I just tried to ignore him and I FINISHED it. I am also posting these pics so he can't. I do love him.

pics of snow and house this winter


Here is a pic of our place. We are pretty well buried this year. Thought I would post so everyone can see our second winter blast in a row. Lots of buildings collapsing this year. Costco and a couple Wal-Marts have had to close so they can move all the snow off of their roofs. I also got some pics of a nice buck out by our place that I will post. The kids are having a blast playing in the snow and climbing all the piles that are stacked at the end of our street.

snow and motorcycles... and snowmobiles...

I haven't posted for a while... We have lots of snow here. All the records from last year are being broke. I spent 2.5 hours today plowing. FUN STUFF!!!! I also just got my motorcycle back from Happy Trails with the Panniers. I am eagerly awaiting Spring so I can go on some sort of overnight excursion with all my gear and my bike. There are a few pics below of the finished product.

I also will throw in a few videos of me jumping the snowmobile in the front yard on Christmas Day. I was doing pretty good... landed about 6 times just fine and had a group of grown men telling me to go faster and jump higher. I am a sucker for peer pressure. Last video shows me bailing after I caved to their pressure.

ENJOY!
