Help! We've got cabin fever!!

Peyton hates the snow. He wouldn't even touch it. Guess it's a good thing we don't live in Kansas anymore. It's only 9:30 and we're going crazy!! Brad had to go to work...Peyton's out of school and I have no choice in the whole matter. Someone help us!!!

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas....

It's only 6:45 am a nd it's snowing like crazy. We're under a winter storm warning until 6:00pm so it's only going to get worse! Stay tuned for pictures of Peyton playing in the snow!

Let it snow!

Tonight they're predicting Hattiesburg to receive up to 3 inches of snow! Not much to our Northern friends, but to us in South Mississippi it's enough. And it probably only means there will be no school tomorrow...grrr. I just came in from checking the mail and the people driving down our street were acting like they were on's 48 degrees out people...relax. Hopefully it won't be too bad tomorrow and Peyton can still go to school...we're about to kill each other from being stuck in the house all week with his sickness....and I really need to work out. I'm working on getting some video uploaded....I'm having a hard time though so be patient. Wish us luck as we ride out this Winter Storm Watch!! ( it just occurred to me that I might live in the arm pit of America...we have hurricanes, tornadoes and now snow?!!! Whats up with that?)

The Sprinkle Stinker

It's been a really long month for us. Peyton has been fighting a cold since Halloween and over the weekend it turned ugly. Today he is FINALLY on antibiotics after another visit to the Dr. and a phone call this morning. I mean really....after a month of snot and a night of fever, isn't it called something other than "just a cold"? So this afternoon his spirits are back up and he seems to be feeling better...even though he still has a fever. So since he's been sick for so long, I didn't think twice about letting him have the sprinkles he found in the pantry this morning. Who can tell a sweet snotty 2 year old no when he says "Mommy...fease." (in his most pitiful voice ever...he's already working angles.) I put the sprinkles in a bowl and set him up with a movie. About 10 minutes later he comes running into the living room. I immediately look at him and know this isn't going to be good. This is what I saw.....

Needless to say the sprinkles were blanket on my bed was officially green and I've nicknamed him Grinch for the day. After I caught him totally covered in sprinkles, he ran to the pantry and wanted more!! Seriously?!! I don't think so.

On Sunday we decided to give Peyton his Christmas presents since we will be going non stop for the next 3 weekends. We got him a Little Tykes bounce house. To say he LOVES it would be an understatement. He even made Pepper get in with him. She liked it surprisingly.

Brad's parents came down for the weekend and on Saturday night we went to Mobile to see the lights at Bellengrath Gardens. It was cold and crowded, but beautiful. We've decided it would be prettier in the spring though. Don't we look ridiculous?
So now we're just praying that Peyton gets well in the next few days. This weekend he is staying with Maw and Paw so that Brad and I can go to Dallas and watch the Cowboys play the Giants. We're so excited!! Hopefully the weather will cooperate as well...I just heard on local news that tomorrow and Thursday we could get wintry precipitation here in South Mississippi. You know you're in the south with one day it's 75 degrees (today) and the next it's snowing!!! Merry Christmas Y'all!!!
