Snow Days!

I can't believe that it's the middle of February and I'm just now posting. Let's see........maybe I can update you on what we have been doing. We had a going away party for our dear friends, the McLean Family. They have been stationed in Eugene, Oregon. Only three years and maybe they'll come back! Our church already misses them. Forty people came over for the get together and it was a blast!(Other than the fact that I was coming down with the flu. God bless you, Ibuprofen!
Last week, we got about six inches of snow. Even Dave got a snow day! He went out and bought all kinds of sleds ,saucers, and a snowboard. A good time was had by all!
Monday, it started sleeting and it didn't stop for almost 24 hours. We ended up with about four inches of ice and no electricity. Between the fireplace and extra blankets, we managed until Dave brought home a generator and a kerosene heater. About the time our power came back on, the Truitt's lost theirs. They don't have a fireplace so they came over here for a big slumber party. One of their boys commented that "This is the best day of my life!".
Dave and the three oldest boys are leaving tonight for Galena, IL. to go snow skiing with Boardman brothers, uncles, and cousins. Pray for protection over life and limb! Caleb, Emmy, and I have big plans of going to McDonald's Playland. Wow! Emmy said, "Mom, can we actually go in the door?" As you can tell, I'm more of a drive-thru Mom!
Sorry I've rambled so................................Until next time, Ciao
