Goodbye Sammy...

 We don't have pets in our home because of allergies but we have made exceptions with a few rats because they seem to not have allergy problems. Ashley had one that lived for 3 years and Savvy decided she wanted to follow in her sisters footsteps. She saved all of her money and purchased Sammy.  She was the most caring owner, she would read to Sammy, play with him, feed him lots of treats and always cleaned out his cage. After a couple of months, Savvy developed an allergy to Sammy and we had to have him adopted back into the pet store. She was in tears for a long time which of course broke our hearts.
She was thankful she got to spend some time with him and make his life better.

It's so hard to see kids in pain!
We took these pictures, framed them and she wrote letters to him. 
It has been hard for her but we are glad Savvy is breathing better!

Snow in Atlanta...

I'm sure you've all heard the chaos Atlanta experienced last month with
2 inches of snow and extreme ice and sleet. The whole city was shut down.
We came from Colorado so it seemed the storm was nothing until I learned that there are only 50 snow trucks for 6 million people so then I wasn't surprised by all the chaos. The roads were horrific, no one has 4W Drive and everyone works in the city.
It took Jason 5 1/2 hours to get home (usually a 20 minutes commute) 
School was shut down for days and days and we were stuck indoors.

My kids had a blast.
They never thought they would get to build a 'Colorado worthy' snowman!

 We only lost one tree with all the snow.

Our girls don't think pants are necessary to play in the snow either.

Jason and I took lots of walks.
Being stuck indoors with 6 kids can make you a little crazy!

We were so grateful that no one was hurt 
and now we are so ready for the warmth to return!

I heart HEARTS!

I am surprised how often I come across a heart shape.
It makes me stop, look and appreciate those special moments!

Look for those small moments and remember them!

Christmas has come and gone too fast. 
Here are a few pictures from the festivities.

Jason ordered this gingerbread house from the sweetest 80 year old woman. She makes them and then donates the proceeds to charity. Isn't it amazing!
Breakfast with Santa.
