A Blizzard, A Look-Alike, And More News!
Cheese and Crackers! Has it really been two weeks since I posted??? Yikes! I hope I didn't lose all of my followers. Well alot has been going on here at MDB, including the Blizzard of the Century! You may remember hearing about it just before Christmas. The whole East Coast got slammed and here in South Jersey we got a whopping 2 feet!
The picture at the top is my trash can which I moved close to the back door before the storm. It was still snowing at that point.
This was the next day.
The kids had a ball of course and it made for a beautiful Christmas.
It was so bad out that it's the only time I can remember in my life that Church was actually cancelled! Fortunately things cleared up a bit and we were able to go to Christmas Eve Eve Service. Our church started this tradition about three years ago and my family quite enjoys it. We go to church on December 23 for the family candlelight service.
Now this next part of my post is truly amazing and for those of you who have already seen this on BJ's blog, Sweet Nothings, you know what I'm talking about. The day after Christmas I was catching up on my blogging and I came across this picture on BJ's blog of her granddaughter Deeds on Christmas morning.
Isn't she just the cutest thing?
Well, my entire family did a double-triple-quadruple-take upon seeing that picture. Here's why:
This is MY daughter Amy:
Is that not the darndest thing? Of course I showed Amy's picture to BJ on the spot and the two of us had a good laugh over it. So far we've been able to fool just about everyone into thinking that Deeds is Amy, including AMY! I showed it to her and she said "what's that I'm playing with Mommy?" Isn't that a hoot! Even her sister and BFF thought it was her.
My last bit of news is that my home has been chosen to be on the local Christmas House Tour NEXT year! I'm half-excited, half-scared-to-death! Of course I'll be browsing blogland for lots of inspiration and I know you will all be wishing me luck. The downside is that I have to keep my decorations up until Jan. 4th so that the committee can come see my decorating to pick a theme for my home. I will be dying to take them down by that point. Funny thing is, I feel like I JUST put them all up! As usual, the entire Christmas season was a blur. But I'm looking forward to the New Year and everything that HE has in store for me in 2010.
May you all have a wonderful New Year!
