My new winter friends


It may not be a surprise to you when I tell you that I hate winter. It is pretty at times (like the other day when the snowflakes looked just like glitter), but it is also very inconvenient, very dark, and very cold. But luckly I have these MAGICAL slippers to help keep me warm and cozy! They were a very special birthday gift, handcrafted by Ingrid. She is a very talented knitting queen (well, she is talented in many areas, but I'm particularly glad for this special gift she has!). I've literally been wearing them since the temperatures dropped below 60 degrees outside! I even wear them to bed. Thank you Ingrid, for helping to make this winter just a little more bearable. I just hope that I won't still be wearing them in June like I might have last year!!!

Extra snow days thanks to cancelled flights :(


Marissa's flight out to Portland on Saturday was cancelled but she happened to run into an old youth group friend, Kathy, who was stranded at the airport so they have been getting reacquainted as they wait to fly.

Our flight on Sunday was also cancelled and so we spent another day snowed in. Here is our back yard---the snow is covering over half of our fence!!! Wish us luck as we all hope to catch tomorrows morning flight out!

This was our one moment of sunshine---I miss the sun!


The cats getting cozy for a nap, this was taken after they helped each other bathe---they are so darn cute!
