Post-Thanksgiving Posting

I want to take a moment to give shout-out thanks to:
My parents for Aiden's LLBean snow suit. It allows the little boy in my life to escape from the house for at least 30 minutes a day, for which, I am ever so grateful!
My in-laws for Andy's long-johns and snow boots. I know Rick, that you never used them on your detail at the Olympics in Salt Lake City, but they sure are getting plenty of use now!

My Grandma and Fred for the double-lined socks expedited to us from QVC. Warm feet is a good thing!

My God for blessing our family with a 4Runner with 4-wheel drive. I had questioned this fall whether to downsize to a more economical, fuel efficient, budget friendly SUV, but now with almost 2 feet of snow on the ground and Andy having to leave for work at 10pm, I am more than grateful for the foresight the Lord gave us in purchasing the "Yota!"

Best for Last

And the best pic of the snow yet ... from floor-level in our dining room, looking out onto the deck!

Let it Snow ... and snow ... and snow ...

It's 4 days 'til Christmas and it's been snowing for at least 2, maybe 3 days straight (I've lost count). Today, according to our trusty weather peeps, we're experiencing a "nor'easter" (I have no clue how to spell that one!). I know it's not good for people who have to get out in it, but I just can't help looking out the window a million times a day and marveling at its beauty. God is so awesome in creating something so white and perfect.

Back Up and Running

I know it has been forever since I've posted on my blog. Most likely you forgot I even HAD a blog, but alas! I am going to start it up again! Maybe it's due to the cold winter weather that has been keeping me indoors and craving an outlet for all my thoughts. Or perhaps it's because I finished my 130 Christmas cards "project" and now I feel a void in my life. Well, no matter the reason, this blog is up and running again, so keep an eye on it every couple of days. Happy reading!
