SC 1st Snow Fall

The last South Carolina White Christmas was 47 years ago, till 2010 Christmas. It starting Snowing Christmas Day around 3pm. It was pretty! There was about 2 inches on the ground about 11 Pm that night. I have never seen a white Christmas here in SC. I have seen snow during Christmas time last year while in Maine. Well Here are some Chilly Photos!  I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and if you got snow, a fun snow day! Of Course our snow only lasted about a day or so. But we enjoyed all of the snow. Carter was scared of the snow, he didn’t want to go outside, he just didn’t really know what to think of it I suppose. I am not a big fan of snow either but it was nice and I like to look at it. Maybe we get some more snow soon. SO  who is ready for the new year? I am making a list the list for 2011. On Jan 1st is my 2 year date from when I started this blog. Which My blog has came a long way from then. I hope to do a fun post then! Well i am going to go I hope to update soon! I am going to my Grandmothers tomorrow for a Christmas Gathering. It should be fun.

Night my lovely Readers!

Christmas Cookies!

Hey! I was going to post this yesterday for the Dec. 1st, but I didn’t get around to it. Tuesday I made home made sugar cookies, they turned out yummy! They were so much fun to decorate them. I am trying to get into the Christmas spirit! So who is ready to start counting down to Christmas!! Well Everyone should try this recipe! They are very soft when done and stay soft. Tip before cooking them. After cutting them out put them back in the fridge to chill for a sec, they will keep shape. Well if anyone does make them let me know!! happy Thursday, I gotta run!

My Thanksgiving and Weekend.

Hello!

I have had a busy weekend and some news! Thanksgiving was great, just we cooked way too much food!! Which was nice to have family over and having people to cook a big dinner for. All the food turned out to be yummy and everything came out like it was planned! Also I went Black Friday shopping which it was crazy!!!! I went to Old Navy at 12 and stood in line for 2 hours to check just for some $5 pjs, which don’t get me wrong it was so worth it! I got some cute gifts and some pretty Christmas things for our Christmas tree. I am so excited about the Christmas Season and that I get to spend this season with my mommy that is coming down to the end of Dec. Also I will be coming an Aunt to twin Girls too! Well Also this weekend Chelsea had puppies!!, I am a nanny! She had five beautiful puppies! Also this weekend we put the tree and lights outside the house! Sunday we went to a Green Bay Packer game in GA. Which we lost 😦 but hey it was a great game and a close one. I think the Flacons went the crowed way out of the game. They won by a field goal, they should have man up and went into over time. Just saying. But if the Packers had a few more sec. they could have won!! Well this week I am going to try to stay on my diet, I can’t jog tomorrow it suppose to rain, if it doesn’t I am going to try and get out and walk/run some. Hmmm I am not sure what I have plan for this week, I brought a book today so I hope to start reading it this week!

Well Here are some photos enjoy!!

They are Mixed with Lab and Aussie Shep. Some have white feet, they are getting so big!

Our Thanksgiving Turkey, it was so yummy!!

Care Bear Toppers that I made for a cupcake order. For this past Saturday, they were so much fun to make! 🙂

Thanksgiving to me is the day to give thanks and the day that fall ends and to start getting ready for Christmas. I am wanting to put up our tree Friday or Saturday. I made a pretty Christmas wreath under $10 yesterday, which I love! Now I am needing a wreath holder so I can hang it on the door! Well this week I am hoping to blog little something about Thanksgiving. Like my favorite recipe, what I am thankful, photos, and maybe something more (:

Cold November bur..

My 2nd post for today! Today for dinner I went to Denny’s because I wanted some breakfast and I wanted to see Curtis! Well They had Pumpkin pie but they were all out!!! So after dinner I went to Ingles and brought some Pumpkin Pie Creamer! There are so many different flavors and since its time for the holidays there are so many more!! I am wanting to go back and get many more!! So a nice big cup of coffee and a homemade chocolate cookies = warm November night, and the coffee made the house smell so good! So of course I took photos!! 

I am getting very excited about this Sunday! Curtis and I are getting photo taken! We are using the photos for Christmas Cards and for some frames. I am wanting to go for a Christmas feel so We are going to be wearing Black and Red. I hate matching and I just hope it wont freak me out to much. But I am wanting to a stylist matching look. Carter is also going to be the photos too, so I am going to look for a red sweater for him, since it will be chilly. Just trying to think were we going to take them at.  Any ideas??  ( here is her logo she makes beautiful photos!)

Also Please join me for The Good Witch Blog Party!! (: Have a good and warm night everyone!!

xoxo

A Holiday to Remember. . .

Happy December!!
It’s not the 1st day of winter, but it sure does feel like it this morning. I woke up at 6:30 AM went out to my car and there was frost. How crazy is that? I got to wear my winter coat for the real 1st time. lol I am real excited about this holiday which I say that is bc 1oth is the last day of 1st semster. So I have month off of school. This Dec. is going to be exciting I am spending Christmas and doing Christmas with Curtis this year. That I never thought I would do. After Christmas Curtis and I are driving up to Maine to spend New Year’s with my Mother. !!! This is going to be so much fun. We get to see real snow and lots of it.

One thing I love about the holidays is that I get to make all kinds of goodies (: I was looking at Better Homes Mag this morning and saw many things I like to try this year. When it comes to sweets that is. So whatever I bake will post photos and if any good I post the awesome part that makes it. lol I also post them on Twitter and Facebook. Which u find my Twitter updates on the right and my Facebook link is in my About me page.  

 

Also started the Christmas season off by riding for toy for tots in Anderson on last Sunday. That was a big thing. I say there were over 600 bikers. This is not the best of photo…. I forgot my Cam. so This is all I have of that day. (sorry) 

Well I am not sure what else to write at the moment. Had a Great Thanksgiving with Curtis. Hurt by some of my family but thats another post of another day. I post some more later.

love,
Courtney
