Well it's good to know that even the people who have lived up here in Jackson for a long time think it is unusually cold for this time of year too! For the past two weeks it has been consistently below ZERO DEGREE'S!!!!!! (AHHHHH!) Apparently, we've heard, it's only like this in January and February! (So Crap! What is it going to be like during those months now!!!!) I've been running in the mornings with a couple of crazy gals who are use to running in weather like this! Yesterday I brought my camera so I could document what running in -8 degree weather looks like!
(keep in mind it was NOT snowing, that is all frost after running!) I love the iced over eye lashes! (Stacy wiped hers away for the pic- Left!)

So what have we been up to during these cold days and nights........ not much!

We actually opened up the only game we have the other night! We are not big gamers usually, and this game happened to still be in it's original wrapping from our wedding 5 1/2 years ago! But it is "America's favorite word game" and it is quickly becoming ours. Lets just say we've been staying pretty busy with Scrabble!

(Let the record show that Colb has not yet beat me, also you should know that it says in a two player game a good score is usually around 300 - 400 points.......neither of us have broken 300 yet! Three and four letter words are our specialty right now, although I think were getting better! Playing with google as our dictionary has helped a ton too!!!)

Other highlights lately have included:

The lighting ceremony in town square!

Why we didn't get a pic after the lights came on, I'm not quite sure, and Cici wasn't sleeping, both pics we took she was blinking, dang it! (So we will post a pic soon of the cute lights in town square with Cici's eyes open hopefully!)

We also went to a little Christmas tree festival and went to listen to the town choir perform Handel's Messiah.

Other than that we've just been hanging out and watching "SYTYCD" (Good Times!)

Some exciting news however is that Cici is now 10 months old and is pretty close to walking! I'll post a video soon but here is a blurry pic, since she moves pretty fast with this little walker toy!

She also loves waving "Hi" and "Goodbye!"

So bye for now!
