I am so glad that its snowing! It is so much fun and just so pretty! I think that Justin and I were meant to live somewhere that it snows more because we both become like kids when it snows and just get so stink'n excited. If only we could move Compass Lake and Lake Eufaula north it would be more likely for us to live there...but we really need to be close to these two locations during the summer time! Oh well, I'm just thankful it is snowing right now. Gosh it is pretty!

Yesterday afternoon I got home from picking up Collier and we were sitting on the couch with Brinkley too! Collier was rubbing all over Brink and I decided I needed to get a picture. I got the camera and bent down to snap the picture and through my lens I see Collier move quickly to the crawling position...I lunge forward, drop my camera and still wasn't quick enough to catch him. He fell straight on his little head. I freaked out, I was scared and worried. He was screaming and I know it must have hurt. On top of the fact that it was time for him to go down for a nap....tired and hurt...not a good combination. Justin was at a neighbor's house and I called him to come home. By that time Collier was calmed down - I was not. I didn't want to lay him down in the bed since he just fell on his head but Justin said he was fine and so I watched like a hawk on the monitor to be sure I could see him moving and breathing. I felt like a horrible mom and I knew that I shouldn't leave him on the couch or the bed or the changing table but sometimes I do because up until recently he hasn't been in much of a hurry to go anywhere when I set him down. That is the end of that and I have certainly learned a HUGE lesson! I know that he is going to fall and have bumps and bruises but just hate that it happened. I still feel really bad.

I am sure that we're going to play in the snow this afternoon and I'll share more pictures then!
