I had stressed and stressed about my Christmas card this year. Normally I will use a picture that I made in the fall of the kids, but things got crazy busy and I never did get around to making any pictures of them in somewhat matching outfits. I was ill, mad, disgusted, all of the above about my card. One night a little dusting of snow fell and I got my camera. turned on the flood lights and snapped a couple of pictures to see how my lighting would be. It was good!! The kids were in the basement playing, I yelled for them and said to put on your muck boots, puffy coats and boggins!! They were thinking "Yep Momma has finally lost it!" I told them come on we are going to play in the snow!!! What I like best about this card is this is THEM...this is US!!! Maddie showing her usual sass in her pink and Carter in his muck boots and camo coat! Our Australian Shepherd Trigger would not leave them alone and I said grab him up and hug him! Picture Perfect!!!
Merry Christmas from our house to yours!!!!

About 2 months of ago, Chris, me and two other couples went on a Bourbon Distillery tour. Ya see KY is where that bourbon you love so much is made from, at least the majority of it or the more popular ones anyway!! We toured Woodford Reserve, Four Roses, and Wild Turkey. We aimed to also tour Makers Mark, but time got away from us.
We all met in Louisville at our hotel, The Brown, which is located downtown. A very swanky establishment if you will! And then we all piled in a stretch limo!!!! Yeah none of us wanted to drive since we get to taste test at each distillery after the tour. It was a very fun and informative day!!! I highly recommend if you get the opportunity to tour any of these distilleries that you do so!! I learned that the WoodFord Reserve was the most toured attraction in KY in 2012!!! Just think all that bourbon that is sold all over the world is made right here in my little home state!!!
