Let it SNOW!

Alabama isn't really known for its winter snowfalls... In fact, the whole state goes into crazy mode whenever the "S" word is mentioned. Usually the white stuff never even arrives, but we all wait by the windows with wide-eyed anticipation, hoping the flurries begin to fall.
This last weekend, however, we actually got some snow.... good snow! The white, shimmery flakes fluttered down for about 4 hours, covering the rooftops and the trees and leaving a light dusting on our lawns. We had enough snow to make a headless snow angel (Jaiden didn't want to put her head all the way back), throw a few snowballs and build a pathetic little "snowdude."
This was Jaiden's first really good snow. She's seen -- and caught -- a few snowflakes before. But this time, the three of us (Rowdy wasn't too thrilled... he was outside for about 10 minutes) bundled up in mismatched layers and tumbled outside for a few hours of frosty fun!

Happy FIRST!

Sean and I recently celebrated our very first wedding anniversary! We kept it pretty simple, since we have a dinner reservation at Ohana (at Disney's Polynesian Resort) in a few weeks to celebrate!
So... instead of anything super fancy, we ate chicken at Zaxby's and came home to watch "Bourne Ultimatum." We also dug the wedding cake out of the freezer and shared a HUGE slice. It was a bit on the freezer-burn side, but otherwise quite tasty!

Little Beauty and Belle

Jaiden had a 5-year-old girl's dream breakfast at the Norway pavilion at EPCOT a few days before Christmas. Of course, Mom, Dad, Sean and I had a great time, too. But Jaiden was all smiles (and a little shy) as she met and talked with Belle, Sleeping Beauty, Jasmine, Mary Poppins and Mulan and got their pictures and autographs.
