Its that time of year again!

Well, another December has rolled up on us. We're now 4 days until Christmas and though the house is a glow with lights and decorations, it really doesn't FEEL like Christmas. I blame it primarily on the weather. Current forecast for Friday is 73°/62° with a 40% chance of rain. What's up with that?! Its supposed to be cold on Christmas. But then again we live in Georgia and I've somewhat come to expect that. You really never know what its going to be from one week to the next. Weather aside, things are still just not quite Christmasy. Its somewhat hard to get into the holiday spirit when you…

Settling in nicely

So a few weeks ago, or what seems like a week ago I posted about a shittaculer week that we had. I mean literally it was an assplosion of epic proportions. Since then we've rebounded quite nicely and have managed to get everyone else around us sick! Well, maybe they got themselves sick, but either way it seems that everyone is now falling victim to the dreaded mud butt. Enough about that... This December has FLOWN by. But I reckon that's the way time usually goes. When your in the weeds things may seem to drag on and weeks never end and you have "the longest day ever" syndrome, but…

Whether it was the fact that we hadn't done shit all week or it was some sort of voodoo magic in the air, but man we knocked it out today! This morning BLT was all trying to kick things off as if it were any other day by waking up at 5am. No one wants to be up at that hour on a Saturday. We quickly squashed that by taking him over to my mom's house. She agreed to watch him for the morning so we could get some stuff done around the house for a change. The goal was lofty, but we were up for a challenge. Ever since moving…

Decorating at the Turner’s – 2k12

[caption id="attachment_1153" align="aligncenter" width="660"] At the tree farm![/caption] Well, we are not ones to dillydally when it comes to getting stuff unpacked and decorated around the house and this year would be no exception. So despite having only been in this house ONE week, we decided it would be a good idea to go round up a 8+ foot tall tree and decorate that mug with as many lights and ornaments as we could muster. We headed off to our local tree farm where Chase picked out the perfect tree and helped me cut it down. Mom and Lane sat by taking cute pics of and enjoying the weather. Once…

2011 – Let’s review

2011 started off like any other year, with a wicked ice storm that pretty much shut down the whole state of Georgia. We made the best of it and actually had a really great time. We wouldn't get that kind of ice/snow again for the rest of the year. I'm actually hoping that we get one again, only this time we'll have a lil' baby with us. February brought us Gracie. A Great Dane that would put us to the test. [youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=taFR6LzQ2rM[/youtube] Neither one of us had ever owned such a beast. She was one of the sweetest and happy dogs ever, but damn was she a handful. After many…

A Very Sniper Christmas

[caption id="attachment_829" align="aligncenter" width="614" caption="Look what Santa left for Christmas!"][/caption] Christmas has come and gone, though not by much. The tree is still up, there's still remnants of wrapping paper, bows, and tape lying around. The 'new car' smell on all the toys is still there, but the actual day has passed. That by no means, indicates that all the joy and happiness of the season has moved on as well. Chase is off at his dad's, playing with his toys there while his other pile awaits him here. Jess and I both are enjoying each other's company and all the wonderful things 'Santa' has brought us. We had a very modest…

Laziness and leftovers….

This house has been pjs, leftovers, ps3 playing, and complete laziness for three days now. It's been SO nice. I'm not sure when the next time will come when we have so little to do. Maybe Xmas break...unless lil BLT makes his arrival earlier than planned!! Also, when you're sick of leftovers, create something new! Tonight we had white bean turkey chili and mashed potato cakes and they were perfect! Back to work and school tomorrow. I'm hoping chases fever will break tonight, and the next 18 work days will fly by and be nice and calm. :)

Happy Thanksgiving!

We made enough food to feed 20! Here's the spread. Turkey. (20 pounder!) Gravy Chorizo cornbread stuffing Green beans with bacon Mashed potatoes Sweet potatoes Corn casserole Cranberry sauce Cookies Pumpkin pie Butterscotch bourbon pecan bread pudding with a bourbon syrup. Then. Sandy brought Mac n cheese, rolls, tea, pecan pie, and banana pudding. Yup. There were FOUR of us. Chase was with his dad and my family doesn't really gather for holidays anymore. We will be eating leftovers for days. I think all the cooking and eating has us hungover today. We been on the couch being lazier than ever, but I've LOVED having these past few days at…

This morning BLT was all trying to kick things off as if it were any other day by waking up at 5am. No one wants to be up at that hour on a Saturday. We quickly squashed that by taking him over to my mom's house. She agreed to watch him for the morning so we could get some stuff done around the house for a change. The goal was lofty, but we were up for a challenge. Ever since moving…

Decorating at the Turner’s – 2k12

[caption id="attachment_1153" align="aligncenter" width="660"] At the tree farm![/caption] Well, we are not ones to dillydally when it comes to getting stuff unpacked and decorated around the house and this year would be no exception. So despite having only been in this house ONE week, we decided it would be a good idea to go round up a 8+ foot tall tree and decorate that mug with as many lights and ornaments as we could muster. We headed off to our local tree farm where Chase picked out the perfect tree and helped me cut it down. Mom and Lane sat by taking cute pics of and enjoying the weather. Once…

2011 – Let’s review

2011 started off like any other year, with a wicked ice storm that pretty much shut down the whole state of Georgia. We made the best of it and actually had a really great time. We wouldn't get that kind of ice/snow again for the rest of the year. I'm actually hoping that we get one again, only this time we'll have a lil' baby with us. February brought us Gracie. A Great Dane that would put us to the test. [youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=taFR6LzQ2rM[/youtube] Neither one of us had ever owned such a beast. She was one of the sweetest and happy dogs ever, but damn was she a handful. After many…

A Very Sniper Christmas

[caption id="attachment_829" align="aligncenter" width="614" caption="Look what Santa left for Christmas!"][/caption] Christmas has come and gone, though not by much. The tree is still up, there's still remnants of wrapping paper, bows, and tape lying around. The 'new car' smell on all the toys is still there, but the actual day has passed. That by no means, indicates that all the joy and happiness of the season has moved on as well. Chase is off at his dad's, playing with his toys there while his other pile awaits him here. Jess and I both are enjoying each other's company and all the wonderful things 'Santa' has brought us. We had a very modest…

Laziness and leftovers….

This house has been pjs, leftovers, ps3 playing, and complete laziness for three days now. It's been SO nice. I'm not sure when the next time will come when we have so little to do. Maybe Xmas break...unless lil BLT makes his arrival earlier than planned!! Also, when you're sick of leftovers, create something new! Tonight we had white bean turkey chili and mashed potato cakes and they were perfect! Back to work and school tomorrow. I'm hoping chases fever will break tonight, and the next 18 work days will fly by and be nice and calm. :)

Happy Thanksgiving!

We made enough food to feed 20! Here's the spread. Turkey. (20 pounder!) Gravy Chorizo cornbread stuffing Green beans with bacon Mashed potatoes Sweet potatoes Corn casserole Cranberry sauce Cookies Pumpkin pie Butterscotch bourbon pecan bread pudding with a bourbon syrup. Then. Sandy brought Mac n cheese, rolls, tea, pecan pie, and banana pudding. Yup. There were FOUR of us. Chase was with his dad and my family doesn't really gather for holidays anymore. We will be eating leftovers for days. I think all the cooking and eating has us hungover today. We been on the couch being lazier than ever, but I've LOVED having these past few days at…

Its that time of year again!

Well, another December has rolled up on us. We're now 4 days until Christmas and though the house is a glow with lights and decorations, it really doesn't FEEL like Christmas. I blame it primarily on the weather. Current forecast for Friday is 73°/62° with a 40% chance of rain. What's up with that?! Its supposed to be cold on Christmas. But then again we live in Georgia and I've somewhat come to expect that. You really never know what its going to be from one week to the next. Weather aside, things are still just not quite Christmasy. Its somewhat hard to get into the holiday spirit when you…

Settling in nicely

So a few weeks ago, or what seems like a week ago I posted about a shittaculer week that we had. I mean literally it was an assplosion of epic proportions. Since then we've rebounded quite nicely and have managed to get everyone else around us sick! Well, maybe they got themselves sick, but either way it seems that everyone is now falling victim to the dreaded mud butt. Enough about that... This December has FLOWN by. But I reckon that's the way time usually goes. When your in the weeds things may seem to drag on and weeks never end and you have "the longest day ever" syndrome, but…
