Let it snow..... Again!

So all I keep hearing around here is they haven't had snow like this is 2 years, well two years ago was the 
last time I visited in the winter and it snow like crazy. We already have had over 14 inches on
 the ground that averages out to almost 3 inches a day since we arrived. Mild winter????? 
Well I guess it's better to just get both feet in the snow and get it over with, the spring will 
only look that much better.

I'm getting pretty good at shoveling, but drooling over the neighbor's shiny red snowblower.


A winter storm blew in last night and the girls decided to try shoveling the snow in the
driveway so we could go pick out paint for their rooms today.
I looked out the window and this is what I saw.....

It should be an interesting first winter.

Happy Snow Everyone!

who brought over a plate full of delicious cookies as soon as we walk in our front door!!

The snow is falling almost as fast as my kids on ice skates!!!!

Moving ......

There's a lot of sacrifices we make of our kids, and I have decided on a big one. 
I wanted them to grow up in a house and not have to move every 1-2 years. I wanted
them to be around family and play snow and all this means giving up another part of our
 lives. There won't be as many sunny days and humidity that makes my hair look nice.
We will move away for the friends they've known their whole lives to meet new ones.
They will start public school for the first time ( I'm more nervous then them) and I will start
 my own photography business. Even though I've been a professional photographer/photojournalist for 16 years,
having my own studio business will be a big change.

I know life will be better where we are going but this packing!!!!

So much stuff to fit in such a little truck, I've reach panic mode!

I'm putting all that scrap fabric to good use and color coding the boxes with patterned
 duck tape makes me smile.

And then I can't forget Christmas has to fit somewhere in between all of this.

{WW} : Holiday Window Shopping 2012

I love our annual window shopping excursion every Thanksgiving, such fun memories and the weather was absolutely perfect this time. I can't believe this might be our last. I wonder if we'll come back when the kids are older and walk around talking about when we lived here and run into a few old friends when we do and grab some ice cream at the local coffee shop.

Santa I hope you find your way to our new home in time for Christmas, we didn't put a forwarding address on those letters.

Happy Holidays Everyone!
