Maddy had her first Karate tournament yesterday. That was the longest 6 hours EVER! Abbey and Tabby did great, they got to run around the track upstairs and eat lots of junk food.

Maddy competed in 2 areas. Her Kata, and sparing. She competed against other boys and girls in her belt and age group.

Maddy did her Kata very well. She got 2 7.5's and 1 6.0. We are not sure what she placed in that area.

As for sparring she got 2nd place in the girls sparring. Way to go Maddy!

Her second time to spar, she got kicked in the stomach pretty hard but she is ok now!

Matching jammies.

We are now the family of 3 snuggies! Each one of the girls got one.

Tabby saw this gift and asked for 5 days where is my sesses bag. She was very happy to finally get it!

Abby loves Little Miss and Mr. Men stuff.

Poor Tabby, Christmas wore her out.

Blizzard 2009

This drift was at our front door. How cool is that. It looks like a wave.

Abby and I delivered cookies to our neighbors in that. It was a little cold!

Christmas Eve we had a huge snow storm. The wind and snow blowing around was amazing. I was surprised how much we got. My area was reported to get 11 inches. we had snow drifts in our yard 4 and 5 feet tall.

Ree Drummond

So I have been following her website and trying her recipes for a while and she just came out with a cookbook. I have wanted to go to a book signing but the times were not great but she came to the bookstore very close to my house and I got to meet her and she signed my cookbook! I was very excited. Since I got her book I have tried several more recipes. I just love how easy her recipes are and how easy I can change them to suit our needs.

Dinner and a Show

We ate dinner at Texas Roadhouse, the girls favorite because of the peanuts and rolls. And then we drove over to Chesapeake to see their Christmas lights. We didn't walk around because we weren't dressed for the chill but next year we will.

Tabby is filling her bag of peanuts.
