This concludes my 5th year of blogging….. can’t believe it’s been this long already!
Wishing everyone a great start into the New Year and all the best for 2013!
When it hurts to look back
And you’re scared to look ahead
You can look beside you
And I’ll be there…
I was dreaming of a white Christmas, and my dream came true….well, close enough anyway
It started out as pouring rain on Christmas morning. Temperatures were around 44 F when we left for Oklahoma to spend Christmas with family, and fell to about freezing. The rain slowly turned to snow during the drive north, and by the time we reached Greg’s brother’s house, it was all sleet and very windy and cold.
We left a little sooner than planned to go back home, because the weather continued to get worse, and the drive from Durant to Dallas took us three hours instead of the normal hour an a half. We saw plenty of cars spun out in the median because they refused to slow down. (Every car that passed us going much to fast, I waved to and said “see you in the ditch!” LOL)
Our little town got enough snow to cover the grass completely and it looked so pretty, even in the dark. This morning I could barely wait for the sun to come up so I could bundle up and introduce my iPhone to the snow.
I think my next purchase will be “texting gloves” to keep my hands warm and still be able to use my iPhone. Two more minutes in the cold, and you could have snapped my fingers off like icicles

My lucky shot! I literally tried for hours to get one of these ladybugs just as they were about to take off. This was the one and only time I (kinda sorta, almost) succeeded.
Found these spider webs all over our plum trees one dewy November morning.
I’m sure our neighbors thought that the crazy lady with the camera finally lost it completely when they saw me climbing a ladder before 7am in the morning, taking pictures of a tree!
Had hundreds of these crawling all over the front porch on the Saturday before Thanksgiving. They were fast, though, and it wasn’t easy to get a picture of them.
