Winter Wonderland

Yesterday we had a Winter storm consisting of freezing rain and snow. It is freezing cold and we have bee stuck inside for the last 2 days, but looks so pretty.

1 Year left!

It is crazy to think Jarom will be graduating December 10, 2010. It seems like just yesterday I was telling everyone we will be moving to Tennessee for 3 years. We are in the home stretch now.
Jarom did great last semester. He got 4 A's and 1 B.He passed his major test on all the drugs that could have gotten him kicked out of the program back in October. Once that test was over he started clinicals. We see him a lot more now. It is like he has a job now, just not getting paid for it. He started at The Med last year doing his general rotation. He is currently in OB doing lots of epidurals and spinals. Next he is back at the Med doing general Then he will go on to 3 months of PEDS at Labonheur and St. Jude Research Hospital. Then it is on to Trauma.
He is really enjoying what he is doing although he says OB is weak sauce. Apparently epidurals aren't challenging enough for him. He gets a total of 4 weeks vacation this year and has his whole schedule planned out for the year.
We are not sure where we will be moving next. We will let you know when we do.

One of Peggy's neighbors came from Flagstaff where it had snowed and he had some in the bed of his truck, so we borrowed some and...
Had a Snowball fight.
That night we went caroling to Peggy Sue's neighbors.
New Years Eve we went to a party at the Ballantyne's house and played games until 2:30am.
Thomas light off a few fireworks at midnight.
We chose Mexican Coke for our new years toast.
The party people

We had Santa come to Tennessee because we didn't want to ship the gifts home, so on January 9Th the girls finally got to open the gifts from Santa.
They watched each other open every gift, it was so cute.
Savannah loves her princess dolls, as you can see by the look on her face.

This is a Princess night gown and Savy has worn it every day since then. Maybe Santa should have brought more of them.
Savannah all dressed up for church.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to all.


This year we went to Disneyland with the whole Wingert family(Jarom's mom, brother Aaron and his family and Jared and his family! We spent 2 days at Disneyland and California Adventure. We had such a great time I can't wait to go back in 2 years.
