New Lamp

I love taking old things and making them new to me...

And I love that I have a hubby who doesn't mind helping me do that!

Found an old whiskey jug for really cheap on ebay, then Joey wired it up as a lamp for me!

Now a bedside table is in the works...

We ended up getting a good amount of snow yesterday. I think about 3 or 4 inches.

Maggie and Ty enjoyed running around in it for a while (but then their feet would get cold, and they'd want to go back in).

Joey had fun too. He used my 4-wheel drive Explorer with winter-rated tires to pull several people out of the ditch (he wanted me to make sure I wrote that there was one Nissan, one Dodge, and one Chevy).

I'm a little embarrassed to admit...

that we went to Monster Jam in Atlanta (monster truck competition), and not just that but also that it was kind of entertaining. Joey and one of his good friends, Jonathan, love going to watch these things. So me, Jonathan's wife, and another couple went with them this time.

Like I said, it was actually entertaining to see those huge trucks do all that stuff. Aside from the minor panic attacks while walking out smushed in a huge crowd and riding the MARTA (oh and the seeing the large man's butt crack way too many times when he stood up in front of us), it was a pretty good time!

Not really sure how I feel about the fact that I could have been seen on TV here with this crowd (evidently it was the first live broadcast of Monster Jam on Speed channel).

Baby, It's Cold Outside

It was cold enough at our house to snow and stick. Tyson loved it.

Maggie's not a big fan of cold, but she ran around in it for a minute, then ran back inside.

Ty just sat out there not understanding why everybody won't play outside with him.

Cause it's freezing out there, you nut!
