This is Christmas, Happy Christmas...

Let it Snow!
I don't have snow boots, so we improvised with garbage bags on my feet!
My feet stayed know you're a redneck when...

Once I was a snowman, snowman, snowman

The snow wouldn't pack, so Kent turned me into a Snowman!!!

Yes, That is ME under that snowman!

Once I was a snowman, cold, cold, cold!

I had to hold my breath when Kent covered my face with snow, AND I had to hold the carrot in my mouth! The things we do for love...

Snow angels

Kent's parents' home in the snow

Kent took me and our friend Mikell to the Boston Ballet Nutcracker for Christmas!

Eating Ice Cream sundaes at Hebert's Candy Mansion

We got to create our own sweet madness!

Sweet Tooth...?

Sweet Tooth!!!

Red Sox "gingerbread" house we made with some kids from Church!

Merry Christmas! It's been such a great couple of months since my last post. The title of this post actually comes from part of a new song that Kent just wrote. As most of you can probably imagine, it is just beautiful! He is going to be copywriting his songs officially here in the next couple of weeks, and then we will start working on getting his songs heard out there!

We had a wonderful Thanksgiving--nice and quiet, just Kent, me, Reed, and their parents. We had our first "big" snow storm last weekend--we got just under a foot of snow! Instead of being the typical New England, wet, heavy snow though, it was a light, powder, Utah-ish snow. Church got cancelled, Kent and I shoveled the driveway and Reed's ramp, then we played in the snow.

We are spending Christmas out here in Boston--it's my first Christmas away from my family. We miss them, but are grateful for the chance to be here with Reed and Kent's parents.

We found out that Kent didn't get into UW for grad school. He's on the waiting list for TX A&M, and that's all we know still. We're praying for the right thing to happen, and are excited to know when, where, and what that will be!

May the Lord bless each of you during this Christmas season. Merry Christmas!

...Leaves Are Falling...

Salem skeleton

Ferris Wheel in Salem--it was on the water and overlooked everything; it was so cool!

At the Salem Carnival...what do you even DO with a Spiderman that big?!?!

Part of one of the Salem museum tours...the dancing "possessed" girls of Salem

Is there a resemblance?

How about now?

The Bar Harbor Inn restaurant in the Reading dinner I've EVER had!! They had live piano and everything!

On the Pier at Bar Harbor

See the cruise ship in the distance...

On top of Cadillac Mountain at Acadia National Park

Pretty Fall colors

Part of Thunder Hole in Acadia

Pretty view of the Atlantic

Sand Beach at Acadia

Part of the hike of Precipice Point at was a 1,000 foot rise, and just under a mile hike. They had make-shift "ladders" and "railings" welded into parts of the rocks so that you didn't need climbing gear. It was pretty tough and DANG fun with a beautiful view!

See how pretty? I had slippery pants on and literally almost slid off the mountain here while trying to take this picture!

I'm livin' on the edge!!!

Kent's on top of the world!!! Or Pride Rock!!! Or, well, yeah.

Again, I'm livin' on the edge! See how little foot room I have?

The fall colors were just breathtaking!

Love this picture! That was a huge rock wall behind Kent.

Part of the 27 mile loop drive in Acadia National Park.

These rocks were so fun! You could climb inside of them!

Leaves are falling all around...

So handsome!
It was a bit chilly up there.

The Breakers Mansion in Newport, RI. It's the "summer home" of the Vanderbilt's.

Beautiful, huge, wow.
Well, in a nutshell, that is some of what we've been up to. Fall is beautiful out here in New England. We had a great time in Maine last week, and the mansions we did a few weeks ago. Until next time...

Happy October! So we got home from Church on Sunday, the 18th, and I looked out the window and what did I see...?
3-inch snowflakes staring back at me!!See them falling all around? I especially love the fall leaves in the background of this Noreaster!
Catching them on your tongue was like taking a drink!

Yes, those are actual snowflakes that landed in Kent's hair...they were huge!!!

Look closely, he caught one on his tongue!

I'm telling you, they were HUGE!!! That's ONE snowflake in my hair!

And today, it's sunny skies in the 60s. Gotta love it!
