We're Still Here!

Sorry it's been a while since the last post. You'd think with being snowed in for so many days I'd find time to write, but I tend to find other things that are screaming for my attention like, oh, laundry! (Have I ever mentioned how much I hate doing laundry!?!? Well, I do!) Then on top of everything else I came down with a cold that I just wasn't able to shake. Every time I thought I was getting better I'd start feeling poopy again!

Today I feel much better though, and since the house is relatively clean (at least the downstairs that people see!) I thought I'd write a quick post to let everyone know we're ok. Everyone heard about the ice and snow that came barreling through this area. Luckily we got more snow and less ice. By the end of the two day snowstorm we had about 8 inches of snow in the yard, and about a half inch of ice. The ice is always the worst part. People laugh at how when it snows out here everything gets canceled. Well, out west you usually don't have to deal with the ice the way we have to deal with it here. It makes things very nasty, but boy is it beautiful! After everything finally ended last Thursday mom and I broke out to go get some junk food and we were just oohing and aahing at how beautiful everything was. Especially the trees! They were laced with ice that had snow on top of it and they just sparkled like cut glass! It was great to look at, even if it was a pain in the behind to drive in! Then on Tuesday we got more snow that started falling in the middle of the day, making the rush hour drive a nightmare. School buses got stuck and many slid off of roads, hence why our schools close when it snows! That's a liability nightmare! Mom stayed home from work yesterday and we just spent the day watching stupid daytime TV and wishing the ground hog hadn't seen his shadow on Monday! 6 more weeks of winter for us....oh please! Save me!

But, the kids did get out to play in it a bit, even though it is bitterly cold! Today the high is 20 degrees, and with the windchill it feels like 12 degrees. So you can't get out for long. Jonah's like his mommy, he doesn't like to be cold, so he doesn't last long outside in this weather! But Brianna loves it! She could stay out forever! She's definately more like Steven who loves this weather! (Wierdo!!! LOL!)
I snapped a few pictures so you could all see our winter wonderland! It sure is beautiful, even if I'm ready for it to be gone! (And this weekend it might- it's supposed to be 53 degrees on Saturday! YEAH!!!!!) And just in case you're wondering, yes Jonah is wearing a pink snowsuit in one of the pictures. He doesn't have a snowsuit and Bri can't wear this one anymore so we tortured the poor baby and put him in a pink snowsuit! Good thing he's too young to be forever scared!

How funny1 You better hide that picture. He will not be happy about this when he is 16! The news here in Utah even covered the weather in Kentucky. So I guess all you Kentuckians were crying for a reason :)

Catch a Breath I Muster
When Gazing At Your Face-
Could This Be forever
Transcending Time and Space?

Close My Eyes I Smell You
So Near My Soul You Are-
If I Could Reach Towards Heaven
I'd Bid God Give A Star

I'd Hold It In My Pocket
And Hand It To You Wrapped-
You'd Open Up The Package
All Glowing And You'd Laugh

The Beams Would Hit Your Fingers
And Bounce Off Of Your Nose-
You'd Feel A Bit Euphoric
From Your Head Down To Your Toes

And In That Small Brief Moment
You'd Feel The Magic, Too-
The Way I Felt The Day
God And The Angels Sent Me You!
