our house on the {snowy} hill

joey and i spent a few chilly days in tennessee this week.  we are now the very grateful owners of this pretty little snow-covered home...
everyone keeps telling us that it's REALLY not usually THIS cold in the tri-cities this time of year.  i guess we'll find out if they are telling the truth.  just looking back at some of the pics i took makes me shiver...
these were taken at the eureka inn in jonesborough.  we learned that this is the oldest town in tennessee and apparently the inn is about as old as the town - which would explain why we had NO HEAT...seriously...thank goodness we booked the room with the fireplace!  beautiful, quaint little town.  i can't wait to check out the local charm a little more once the weather warms up this spring.  i have a feeling the kids and i will find some fun things to do here.
soo...the countdown is on...3 weeks to move-in.
but first...a little thing called CHRISTMAS.  we are committed to stepping out of 'moving mode' this week so that we can fully observe this most joyous of seasons with our little ones.  we have a birthday party for jesus to plan, decorations that still need to be displayed, cookies, crafts, and much more ahead of us.  reports on all of these festive events to come!
