My pre-St. Patrick's Day trip to Savannah!!

My friend Tina came to town to visit for a few days last week and we had so much fun!! We decided we wanted to go to Savannah. I didn't even think too much about St Patricks day coming up but we made it out of there by Friday night. Savannah has either the 2nd or 3rd biggest Pattie day celebrations in the US. It was cool to see the water in all the fountains green....I'm just glad I don't have to clean that!! Of course, what trip to Savannah would be complete without going to The Lady and Sons. Yummy!!! I had the shrimp and pecan pie and my friend had a bbq sandwich and key lime pie. After eating we went to the gift shop and her single son (I can't remember if he is Bobby or Jamie) was there and we got our pics taken with him! We went all touristy and took a trolley tour. I can't wait to go back and take a Haunted Ghost tour. I guess there have been studies and Savannah is the most haunted city in the U.S., who knew?? Tina and I had a great time although it was short.

Has it really been over a month??

Well, all I can say is that I have a few new addictions!! My latest play toy is a cricut expression. I'm having so much fun seeing what this thing can do. It all started with an info commercial I got sucked into watching and a couple months later and my share of our tax return 'mad money' I got my new toy!! This thing can do vinyl lettering, cut through chip board, make rubber stamps and cut fabric for appliques(sp??). I'm excited to try some of these projects. I'm not a scrapbooker, but I do enjoy cards. My problem is the creative gene passed me over! I'm a great copy-catter (as I copied this card from the manual!) but this will not stop me from trying!! My favorite part is that this cuts out the envelopes for the cards too (I will never buy another envelope ever again! It's way super easy) and there are cartridges for super cute boxes and stuff. Well, now that I sound like the infomercial I will stop talking about this fun machine. I will host play dates at my place if anybody wants to come over and play!

That being said. I can't believe its been over a month since I posted anything on here. I'm such a slacker! This is my journaling/scrapbooking attempt here and I'm not doing that great! I'll try to catch up on whats been going on.

Snow days!! As I just uploaded the pics for this I see that it added them up at the top of the post...sorry! I still don't know how to navigate too well on here. Oh well....we had a blast on our weekend of snow. As the ruler indicated we had over 4 1/2 inches at one point and I'm sure it was probably more because it kept snowing after Bryan measured that. Our snowman lasted for about 20 minutes and it just toppled over! Avery was sad but made up for it in throwing snow balls. Max loved being out in the snow. He tried to play catch with the snow balls which was quite funny!!
I'm sure I will remember a bunch more to blog on later to catch everybody up on the Schock happenings!!
