Valentine's Adventures

Perry and I had a very memorable Valentine's day (note I didnot say romantic). My husband had thoughtfully arranged for a babysitter for us to have a Valentine's breakfast. Well at the expected time we got a call from the babysitter's husband saying she was stuck in the snow. So off we went to dig her out. We took the long way around and got to her. We(I am using we loosely here - perry and dad did most of the shoveling). By this time there were several more people stuck so we stayed to help them. Then we finally decided to move on out and guess who was now stuck due to the wind blowing the road shut. So another half hour later and a very cold husband we were out with the help of a nice tractor and a fellow named Jim. Needless to say we didnot go out for breakfast. We tried. This was the second time for Perry this week dealing with snow banks. He considering recanting his statement that he likes the snow.

So we stayed in the rest of day. A good day was had but nothing like had been planned. Instead my hubby gave me a couple of hours upstairs to work in peace on sewing projects. Yes, I was thrilled - we now have several knee holed pants made into shorts, shoes fixed and holes repaired.

It should also be noted that my husband kindly turned around my car while the snow was deep so I didn't have to back up. Did I mention I hate to back up in snow. Thanks for the little things. I love them.

Let it Snow

As I type this we are expecting more snow, but this is the result of the Sabbath Snowstorm. I hope that this picture gives you an idea of how deep it was.

Hot Chocolate

This past sabbath we had a snowstorm. We had between 18 and 33 inches. The boys have recently been introduced to hot chocolate. So this sabbath morning we enjoyed a treat of sweet rolls and hot chocolate. This was followed by major digging of snow. Andrew wanted to stay outside all day. The evening before we made Andrew and Aaron's first snowman. They named it Tia. Tia is a young lady that occassionally watches the boys. Andrew then proceeded to run her over. We will have this.
