Wow! What a spectacular display of 2 million tons of ice! We toured the ICE display at the Gaylord Opryland Hotel and Convention Center! They handed us artic jackets as we entered the ice display of Santa's Workshop. How awesome! But totally FREEZING - in 9 degrees! I wish I had brought my gloves - for sure!

I had to laugh when this year - Steve and I got each other - not 1 - not 2 - but 3 - THREE of the SAME gifts! Aaahhhh! Ha ha ha!!! Only he got the better brands - so we returned mine - and kept his.
Being that I think we do this about ever year - we need to talk about - and agree what we are going to get and go get it TOGETHER! ha ha!

It almost looks like a blizzard at times. The woods in the back yard behind the barn is barely visible at times.
Yep...winter is HERE!!!!

...a singular snowflake.....uno - one!
....................................it's a start......!!!
At least there are a few flakes...that didn't melt the MOMENT it hit the ground. It took a few moments before it started melting. WOW! Burrrr....It's sooo c...c...c...ccccold!!!!
It's beginning to feel a lot like WINTER!!!!

I wanted to go, but there was too much turbulence - so we couldn't fly in.
We called the airport there and had a car available to us to drive to the church to attend the service. But once I heard that there would be turbulence - I opted NOT to go. I didn't want to risk having flight troubles! I'm a nervous flyer!
I know JW is with the Lord......happy and reuniting with those gone before him.

Meanwhile though.....I tried to capture this precious pumpkin!!! She is sooooooo SWEET! Her hair has grown out a little more now - and it's soo curly too! Her little personality is showing through a lot more now! My heart is blessed beyond measure!
We decided this year - that most of the gift giving - would be for the grandchildren - and instead of going for broke, on gifts for one another - we'd do a 'white elephant' gift exchange! WOW!
What fun! It was so much fun - that I think we'll do this again every year from here on out. We had a lot of fun...loads of laughter - and no one was stressed out about spending a lot of money we don't have this year. The economy has hit us hard - and life as we used to know it - is a thing of the past!
So we're improvising - and having one of the best Christmasses I can ever remember! All too short-lived - but the memories it left behind are priceless!
