2nd Snow Day & A New Popcorn Maker!

We got two rare treats these past two days- Snow and a new popcorn maker!

From my understanding it is completely rare to have snow here in NC. We at least got 2 inches of ice and an inch of snow, which has made for some slippery ground. Our boogie boards and tupperware containers have turned into sleds, as our exhausted children have managed to squeeze every ounce of energy they've stored up over this past winter. Thank you Lord! (I am sure we will have all the more fun the Ohio snow!)

what he does after the snow.. a little curious george!

And why did we not buy a popcorn maker years ago?! We pop almost six bags each time and it would have saved us a ton of money. Thankfully,  Elijah and Lydia babysat the other night and the family had a popcorn maker.  Thus reminding us they are the "coolest invention ever!" Guess, in all the busyness one forgets those simple childhood memories.

Stay warm and cozy,

    and I want to know if Jack had to stay outside when it snowed..i really hope and miss you...Can hardly wait for the new baby and find what the name will be, grandma

  2. Hi Mrs. Buckout :)

    I work for Icon Media Group and we're working on a new title that released the beginning of January and I wanted to see if you might be interested in reviewing it. We'd be looking for a review to post in February, and are happy for you to host a giveaway as well, if you're interested. More information on Chasing God by Angie Smith is below—let me know if this is a title you'd be interested in reviewing. Thanks so much!!

    Chasing God
    Let's be honest: we've all questioned whether or not we're doing this
    "Christianity thing" the right way. Am I really a Christian? If I'm doing
    everything right, why do I feel so far from God? What am I missing?

    Best-selling author and highly sought-after speaker Angie Smith struggled
    with these same questions, and the answers she discovered inspired her new
    book, Chasing God (B&H Publishing, January 2014). In Chasing God, Smith
    unpacks how our earthly, unrealistic expectations of God result in us
    chasing Him, keeping us from following Him.
