She's a part-time party time girl!

Another day at home in the snow! Evie woke up around 5 and went back to sleep until 8. That was so nice for us to sleep in a little. Her morning nap lasted until 12:30. We were trying to wake her up and she was not interested at all. Our neighbor's had planned a 40th birthday party and due to the snow they had no guests who could make it. We were thrilled to get out of the house and Evie LOVES to go to parties. They had it catered and it was fabulous. Lots of yummy stuff: wrapped asparagus, baked brie, beef sandwiches, shrimp and grits! Evie devoured the little cakes with a chocolate 40. It was nice to meet all the neighbors. We met a 6 month old baby named Julia Claire and Evie is Evelyn Claire. There was a big girl there named Claire too! Kids were running all over the place so excited about the snow. You should see all the winter gear people have around here - fleets of sleds, gloves galore, ski pants etc. Evie's favorite part of the party was getting to see Jack and Lucy. They were jumping all over us and Evie was just barking away at them. She is so cute with her little doggie sounds. It was a fun afternoon. We look forward to getting together with all of the neighbors again soon.

Carl is loving the snow. He was out shoveling the walkway. Not sure who he was expecting. Carl started a trend and our neighbor shoveled his walkway too. Our neighbors were surprised we even had a snow shovel since we moved here from North Carolina. We have about 6 inches or so of snow. It's going to be awhile before it all melts. Evie has kept us busy today. She thinks the boxes of floors are her own personal playground. We had chicken pot pie for dinner. Easy and delicious! She did not have an afternoon nap so she went to bed a little early. Let's hope that we do have another early morning wake-up call!


  1. She is so cute! We got about 7 inches, but I was hoping for more. Glad yall got to party it up in the snow:)

  2. I love the front of your house--it's Colonial and so pretty!
