The Big Snow of 2010

It was coming.  The weatherman said it would be a big one.  Schools were closed, stores were packed with people getting their bread, milk and eggs.  The Tractor Supply Store ran out of sleds.  We were all prepared to wake up on January 7, 2010 with a foot of snow on the ground.

Well actually he didn't predict a foot of snow.  Just about 1-2 inches.  They did close the schools BEFORE it snowed and people did rush to the store for milk and eggs.  You can't call yourself a Southern unless you panic when snow is predicted.  We woke up on January 7, 2010 with absolutely NO snow on the ground.  It didn't start snowing till about 9:30 that morning and we got about 1 inch of snow.  Just enough snow to make the kids excited enough to want to go out and play in the frigid cold.  We had just enough snow to build a 3 inch pile of snow that we called a snowman.  We were able to throw a few snow balls and make a snow angel in the road. 

So we didn't get the big snow this time but there is still hope for one this year.  The kids are really wanting to go sledding at Granddaddy and Grandmommy's house and maybe we will, maybe we will.

Another New Blog

I have decided to try another blog.  I think three blogs will be enough.  I have really enjoyed blogging and reading the blogs of my friends and family.  This blog, "The Waltons" is for bragging about my kids.  My other blog is A Journey of Hope and Peace is the one that I chronicle my journey with breast cancer.  I hope to end that blog soon as my journey comes to an end and I live cancer free.

My new blog is A Mom's Kitchen.  It will be a recipe blog with tips to plan menus and grocery shopping lists.  I am not that talented in the kitchen.  I will never be a Martha Stewart but I enjoy cooking for my family and I want to share what I do.  So if you are interested, check it out.  You will find simple recipes that I cook for my family.  None of the recipes will be original to me but recipes that my mom made, recipes from magazines and websites and friends.  I will also try to credit the person that I got the recipe from and why this recipes works for my family.
