Merry Christmas!

Today is the first day of winter, and appparently mother nature wants us to take notice! It's been crazy here the past couple of weeks. We started off the 2nd week of December with a horrible ice storm that the thousands in the dark. We were fortunate and never lost our power, although we did lose our internet for a few hours. After that storm left we had a day of respite only to receive about 9 inches of snow! That melted and we enjoyed fairly nice temperatures for a few days, 40s and even low 50s. This morning we woke up to 35 mph winds and blowing snow. Yay!

In the ice-storm, My in-laws lost their power. They have been staying with us for the past 12 days. All in all it hasn't been too bad. This morning they went out to the farm to check on things and feed the animals, as they have done every morning, and found the electricity is back on! Yahoo! They are going to spend one last night here tonight and then get groceries and head out tomorrow. Now, as long as the roads don't drift to the point of being impassable we'll all be happy campers!

The dog ate it

So what do you do when you tell your child to eat their supper....and he feeds the dog with it? LOL! I told Ryan to finish up his hotdog. He ran into the kitchen and then came back and told me that Casper at it. I about died laughing! Note to self - When asking Ryan to finish his supper, make sure Casper is with me or in his kennel. Also be sure and tell Ryan NOT to give his food to the dog.
