End of the day cuddles

We were watching Jake and the Neverland Pirates, winding down before changing into our pajamas, and I just happened to get a picture of this cuteness!

These are some of my favorite moments with my Little Man.  I love cuddling on the couch with him at the end of the day, listening to him laugh or watching him pet Izzy.  Spending any time I can with him just makes my life better.

2015 Snow

Winter hasn’t been really bad for us until this past week.  Monday (February 16) it began snowing and we ended up with about 15 inches here at our house.  Wednesday we had a polar vortex that brought the temperatures down to crazy lows for us.  Tuesday night/Wednesday was -7 and then Thursday night was -15.  Our power went off Thursday morning but thankfully we have a whole house generator so it wasn’t a huge inconvenience.

When the snow first began. This was Monday around 11:30am.

The snow was gorgeous even if it was quite treacherous.  A farm in the snow is just beautiful!

Snow, snow and more snow!

He couldn’t walk through the snow so he began crawling toward my 4-Runner yelling “Car!” “Car!” “Car!” He’s obsessed with anything with wheels, motor or steering wheel.

We had to hang out on the tractor since we were outside!

 

Winter isn’t horrible for me but honestly, I’m ready for spring.  I’m ready to start planting my garden and feeling the warm sun on my face!

Eastern Kentucky Road Trip

We had never been to Harlan, Hazard or Whitesburg.  We’ve heard people talk about these places all of our life so we decided to do a little road trip and drive through these places.  It was pretty chilly so we didn’t walk through the towns or anything but we did see some beautiful scenery.

Our route:  Bristol, VA 421 North.  We went through Gate City, VA, Duffield, VA, Pennington Gap, VA into Harlan, KY.  From Harlan we took 119 and it had some breathtaking views!  We took 15 up to Hazard then backtracked on 15 then North on 119 to US23.  We then followed 23 into Wise, VA and made our way back home.

It was a nice road trip.  We didn’t really “do anything” other than drive and look around.  It was great to spend time with my family though and always nice to go places I’ve never been.  Maybe in the summer we can ride back over and get to walk around in the towns.
