Rock hunting at Jacob's Geodes

This past Saturday, my sister and I, went to Hamilton, IL to hunt for geodes. We found quite a few in a few hours and brought them home to crack open. It was a chilly day but a lot of fun!

First Snow of the season

I woke up this morning to huge snowflakes after an evening thunderstorm the night before. I love snow but I wasn't ready for it just yet! One of the Corgis was a happy boy! Dudley wanted to stay out in the pretty white flakes! By Afternoon, the snow was gone and skies cleared. My husband and I decided to go to Brooklyn Pizza in Fulton, MO for dinner. Wonderful food there! Pizza is fantastic, a must try if you are in the area! I stopped to take a photo of the Christmas lights on my cellphone but it did turn out very good.
