Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!!!!!!!!

Hey Blog world! For those of us in the good ol' state of Tennessee, we are watching and praying (with a month's worth of groceries and a back up heating plan in tack) for the snow to keep on fallin! The weather said we may get 8 INCHES! I don't know what we will do if that really happens, but I promise, pictures will come!!!!!! Cross has never seen a "real" snow and I can't wait. He just went down for his nap a bit ago and I am hoping that when he wakes in a few hours that he will get the shock of his life. Did I mention pictures already, oh yes, pictures, scrapbook worthy ones, will be coming!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Those were for all of you exclamation haters! hahhaha

It also occurred to me that any home town girls who were going to be stuck at home for possibly a month (please know the level of "freak out" we get around here) that you might enjoy a longer blog to pass the time and I just happen to have a longer one a brewing. I am thinking I just may have the time to knock it out. Both my babies are asleep, Snick close beside and Cross a little further away. I am looking out the living room window and it is now certain, my neighbor's roof is WHITE. Oh and did I mention I have some chili going? I know, I am so Martha!!!! I feel like a school kid I am so gitty.

Speaking of "giddy" and this is about as far off of the subject as one gal could travel, but I must share a new amount of joy and grace that God has dumped on our home and it is called "Cars" yes the movie! YOU MIGHT BE A REDNECK IF............Mater is your new best friend and you can now quote the entire movie and it makes every bit of your heritage seem somehow amazingly wonderful. If you aren't from the south, you cannot fully appreciate all of the jokes and sayings, but Mater says at one point that "he useta cood whistle and he could get low on omm pappa mow mow ". Now, I am betting few people reading will even know what the heck I am talking about, but this southern heart has never laughed so hard in her ENTIRE life. That is actually from a song called "Elvira" by the Oak Ridge Boys just in case you were wondering and I had to google it just to get my spellings correct and found an amazing version of it on youtube that I started to share until I noticed that the concert was in a church, but they had set aside a "dancing section" and then it was even too redneck for me!

Ok, where was I, oh yes, deep, insightful blog......................It will be difficult to reign you back in I know, but I love wisdom. Not just Mater wisdom, real nuggets of wisdom that make life so much easier and often cause it to make so much more sense. Often times wisdom tells you the "whys" in life or the "I knew their had to be a better way" and the Word constantly calls us to seek wisdom. So I thought I would share some with you guys. Not any of my own. I am only the young age of 30 so I don't have a lot of my own (regardless of my know it all ways). This is real wisdom, from real brothers and sisters in Christ that God has used to bless my life this past year so I just thought it for sure couldn't hurt to share. I will put them in list form as I am sure some of you are still dancing and singing.......

"My heart's on fire Elvira Giddy Up Oom Poppa Omm Poppa Mow Mow Giddy Up Oom Poppa Omm Poppa Mow Mow"

Please don't hold this against me! hahhahhahaha

Ok, I can't do it, I am laughing so hard that even I can't get serious. So deep, wisdom packed blog to come, but for today................

Giddy Up

I had a cat named Elvira! That was my favorite song at the time so I wanted to name the first baby kitten Elvira, but the baby kitten just happened to be a boy so we called him Via for short. Gotta love being redneck. :)

It's been snowing here in NC since 3:00 and it looks like we have close to 5 inches already! Yikes! I don't mind it at all as long as we can stay snuggled inside!

That is so funny! When I was a little girl, my mom would wake my sister and I up to watch the Oak Ridge Boys on "late night" T.V. ....yes, you might be a redneck if your mother woke you up to watch the Oak Ridge Boys!!
