December 10, 2007
I used to think Texas weather was crazy. One day it would be 80 degrees out and then the next day it would be in the 50's. However, since Walt and I have moved to Oklahoma we have realized that anything can happen with the weather here. I wouldn't say that we are experts on Oklahoma weather or anything but in the whole year and a half we have lived here we have experienced everything.
Let's see... the summer we moved here Bartlesville reported a record high of 117 degrees, last November Oklahoma issued their first ever blizzard warning and Walt and I woke up on a Saturday to 10 inches of ice with like 6 inches of snow. Then in January we had another round of ice and power was out all over Oklahoma for almost 2 weeks. Oh yes let's not forget that this past summer Walt drove to work and had to turn around and drive home because the entire town was flooded and now, here I am sitting at home on a work day because it has iced all over Oklahoma. Might I add that two weeks ago it was 78 degrees going to work and now as I look outside at the wintry mix that was left behind and it is a whopping 27 degrees.
Yes, I think Walt and I have experienced it all, and Gracie has too for that matter. We leave to go Christmas shopping on Friday in Kansas City and the high is 30.
I don't think I can say that Texas weather is crazy anymore...in fact nothing is crazy about Texas.

So...here's the official Christmas card picture for 2007. This was after many attempts and after we looked closely at the picture we realized that the water Walt had split on his shirt did show up, but I don't think Gracie or Walt could handle any more picture taking time. So here it is... The Bass Family Christmas Card picture.
I really don't think mine or Walt's Christmas will be much like we thought it would be considering the fact that I just found out I will be getting my tonsils removed. I am so excited that I can't eat Christmas dinner I could almost puke and when Walt found out we wouldn't be able to leave to go home until late Sunday evening instead of the regularly planned Friday evening I think he was secretly wishing we could take two cars, until he realized that I won't be able to drive. So Christmas this year will be a downer, BUT I will be completely capable to look at all the beautiful lights, and let me tell you Walt can't wait to drive me all around T-Town. So I guess Walt and I will have the lights, the music (by the way if you haven't purchased Josh Groban's CD titled NOEL, do so now), the company and the spirit....just not the food.
This past weekend Preston and Ashley came to visit...it was a blast as always, so I will leave you with a small slideshow of the weekend.
Walt gets home from his 4 week stint in Lousiana Thursday and I leave Friday to attend my soon to be sister's bachelorette party and then next weekend we are going Christmas shopping in Kansas City. We will keep you updated on the events leading up to Christmas. Blessings!
