Happy Christmas Eve!!

So we still haven’t quite made it home yet! First we stopped over in Maryland to see my mom and spent the night with her and then LAST night we were hauling on down through Virginia when this massive ice storm set in just an hour or so ahead of us and caused a NINETY car pile up! Yikes! My uncle was stuck on the other side of it and ended up having to sleep in a gas station parking lot all night! So needless to say, my dad called us and told us to get off the roads immediately. It’s looking a lot better today and we only have about 3 more hours til we’re home in West Virginia. Here’s hoping they go smoothly!

And for your viewing pleasure…Introducing our new 2008 ornament!! It’s in honor of the tree lighting post we did earlier. Pretty cool, eh?

I hope you are all having a warm, happy & blessed holiday (free from ice storms!!) Eat an extra Christmas cookie for me!!
