The Big Snow Day

Well the big snow that was suppose to come in the
Smokey Mountains wasn't as big as what they predicted.
It was suppose to be 7-14 inches and only was about 3 inches. 
It was beautiful though.

"Sweet Hunters" favorite restaurant was closed due to the weather so we walked downtown
and found another great restaurant.  I think it is called the Pancake Pantry.
We really enjoyed it.


Pigs In A Blanket
I always order this if it is available because it reminds me of
when I was a little girl and we visited the mountains.
My Sweet Mother and daddy would always order this for us.

We were all so glad just to be in a nice warm place eating good food.
Baby, it was cold outside!

We had such a fun weekend with our friends.
We hated for the weekend to end.

This Christmas tree was in this restaurant.
It was beautiful.

So here we are out walking in this very cold weather.
I was ready to get warm.

Then these crazy love birds decided it was time for the hot tub!!
Oh my.....It was like 15 degrees! 
They are crazy in love....that is for sure!
"Sweet Hunter" and I have been married for 32 years and we know better. Ha!
We had such a great time with our friends, Bruce & Gayle.
We sure did hope to get snowed in!!!
Maybe next time!

Merry Christmas Val!! I'm so happy to see you're enjoying a white Christmas. Glad the scarf is keeping somewhat warm because I can tell it's really cold.
Enjoy your holiday with your hubby and friends. :-)

HI VAL! Well, it's now 6:40am Friday 24th and Gayle and I just got through reading this before we call it a day! Gayle spent yesterday shopping and gift-wrapping, and I spent the day digging up a burst water line in her driveway with her brother Randy. It was just tons of fun, and the best part is - we didn't finish, so we get to do it again a little later today! : ) Yes, I love her that much and then some. As usual, your blogs were EXCELLENT! You should do something like this for $$$! WE LOVE YOU! MERRY CHRISTMAS!! Bruce & Gayle

I loved all your pics of Gatlinburg. That is one of my favorite places to vacation. I don't blame you, I wouldn't have went for the hot tub either. lol

Merry Christmas.
