Southern Freeze 2014

Well after a whole lot of hoopla and waiting

we have icicles 

we have ice covered Tea Olive blossoms

we have ice drips hanging on the leaves of everything in the yard

we even have an icicle hanging in the dried sunflower head
 but what we don't have.... is snow not even a flake.. 
If it is going to be this cold the least it can do is give us a little snow to play in..
 Oh well maybe next time... 
Oh and we are going to be in the high 70's by the end of the weekend..
Crazy isn't
hugs ya'll stay warm and safe, Cherry

A perfect day for a walk

What a beautiful day today turned out to be

The weather has been so crazy around here. I have been cooped up in this
 house for way to long. This morning the hubby and I jumped in the car and took off to the

where several gators were enjoying the sunshine

the sky was unbelievably beautiful

what's not to love

well maybe the gators aren't loveable

but everything else

was just perfect...

 Sure hope you are all getting
 some of this warm sunshine..
hugs, Cherry

I am thankful for each of you..

Wishing each of you a wonderful Thanksgiving
 from our family to yours..
We celebrated last weekend and it was the best time. 
The babies are big enough now
that we wanted to make it fun, make some memories..

the hubby built this Whatchamacallit and I painted it..
The thoughts were we would get all the kids together, take pictures
 and then every year take more and see how much they have changed/ grown

We never did get all the kids together
but the adults sure had fun playing with it..

even baby Harrison got in on the fun.. He is due next week
and we are all so excited..

there was some apple bobbing and yes that is
 a tiny little butt crack going on up there on the right..

some crafting and cousin time
a find the prize hidden in the whipped cream game..
which some miss understood and just kept
 licking the cream until it was gone..
( which is what I would have done )
How about that foot in the
 air action guess it makes you go a little

a HEY ride.. No not a HAY ride
 We had no hay so we just waved and yelled HEY
 to every John Deere tractor or truck that passed us along our way.
We had a ball... kids, adults and even the dogs

Even me, momma and my little sister Cricket got in on the sillyness
I think we succeeded in making lots of fun new memories..
I hope that your time spent with family and friends
 is filled with love, happiness and laughter,
 lots and lots of laughter..
Thank you for stopping by. 
I feel so blessed to be able to share my little world
 with such wonderful friends.. Each of you..
hugs, Cherry
