Thursday afternoon the snow started falling just as I was picking Lil up from school. By Friday morning, there was a half an inch or so on the ground and school was cancelled. While that sounds ridiculous to midwesterners like myself, the roads were very icy and the only salt trucks and snow plows in Atlanta are located at the airport. It's too bad Santa didn't bring the kids snowsuits this year. Jonathan had to wear a Halloween costume to keep warm and Lil wore her rainboots to play in the snow. This makes the second snow fall in a year, which must be some sort of record down here. I've since ordered the kids waterproof mittens called Snowstoppers, which go half way up their arms, making removal nearly impossible. Mwa ha ha haaaaaaa! It probably won't snow again until they outgrow them. Look closely and you'll notice Jonathan's tail.

Where have we been?

Santa came and left a note, along with too many presents. Our toy to square footage ratio is a little out of whack. Time for Santa to come back for some gift taking.

Jonathan waited until the day after Christmas to be naughty. Who said traveling with a toddler was fun? Oh, that's right, nobody.

It was all worth it though because once we arrived in Louisville, Uncle Aaron entertained the kids while Mommy and Daddy drowned their stress in a bottle of wine.

Joanna and Ryan were in Louisville for the holidays, which is one of the main reasons we planned the trip. I hadn't seen their son since he was 6 weeks old. It was really surreal having our children play together because Joanna and I became friends when we were my daughter's age. Could they look any different? A blonde, a brunette, and a redhead walked into a bar...

 While in Louisville, there were snow flurries. Lil and Jonathan ran outside and danced in circles cheering and squealing with joy. Joanna's son lives in NYC and wasn't nearly as impressed as my southern munchkins.

More to come.
