Treasuring the moment

Tonight Sarah has her first Father-Daughter Dance with her Daisy Scout Troop. Being the sap that I am, I was fighting tears HARD as we put on the fancy dress, sparkly shoes and yes (sigh) the light pink lip gloss. Wasn't she just a bald headed baby last year? Such a special night for her and Adam. :)

A picture is worth 1,000 words

ICE STORM 2011: This sums it up PERFECTLY!

Unfortunately all our "fun" snow quickly turned to a solid sheet of ice several inches thick so we've all had a bit of cabin fever. Walking to the neighbors is even a challenge because all the streets and sidewalks are like one big ice rink. We're on our 4th day of being stuck inside so hopefully the weather reports are correct and we start thawing out tomorrow. Until then. we'll try to all stay sane and play Pollyanna Whittier's Glad game.
I am glad that the power did not go off!

More Snow Pics


Well, we got the snow we were all hoping for. We ended up with 5-6 inches here at our house. It was coming down like a blizzard last night before we went to bed and sometime this morning it began to turn to freezing rain. It is starting to sleet right now so the end result is going to be nasty but at least we were able to get out and play in the snow for a little while this morning. I forgot just how beautiful a good snowfall is. Everything is so peaceful and the only sounds you are hearing are the giggles from the neighborhood children sledding. So thankful for this beautiful snow and even more thankful for a wonderful neighborhood full of children!

Ready to make some snow cream!
