merry christmas and while you're at it, can you bring in some firewood

Friday, December 25, 2009

To all our bloggy friends, we want to send out the Merriest of Christmas wishes. We hope you're staying as warm as we are this holiday season!

We had a wonderful Christmas.
Well, except for that whole midwest blizzard thing, but even that wasn't such a bad thing. We just stayed in side...the six of us...opened presents, ate lots of food, watched movies and played with toys. Fun stuff!

We didn't even lose our satellite or electricity so we were able to watch the Bolshoi's performance of the Nutcracker.
Not that the boys were paying attention. They were too busy playing with the remote controlled this and the wall climbing that.
Shad ventured out twice today to get more firewood. We kept the fire going all day...you know...because of that pesky little two-day blizzard. ;) The kids and I kept complaining he was keeping it only a few degrees cooler than an inferno in here...but he didn't want to hear about it...so we're sweltering.
So much for the kids wearing their new pajamas to bed tonight! :)
One nice thing about a massive snow storm...you are guaranteed to have a white Christmas! :) We have a TON of snow...I'd say we're working on 18 inches, give or take a few. We have a lot of pretty deep drifts - you know, because of that whole blizzard thing.
Our trip to Colorado has been called off because most of the roads around us, if they're not already closed - should be. Actually, I'll be surprised if we can just get out of the driveway for church on Sunday. And we have Blue Mama - the 4x4.
The Emerald City's snow plow crew has been working hard at it, but those plows are just no match for the wind. On Shad's two trips to the shed for wood, a half an hour after he shoveled his way to the shed, the path was completely blown shut. The same can be said for the roads. Our neighbor's car is almost completely snowed under.
I'm just hoping we can take advantage of it here pretty soon and do some sledding.
Tomorrow will probably be a bit more of the same...except for maybe some more laundry added in there, just to spice things up a bit.
To all our bloggy friends, we want to send out the Merriest of Christmas wishes. We hope you're staying as warm as we are this holiday season! :)

Sounds nice being snowed in. I love a winter weekend like that when I have food and a good book. The only drawback of your Christmas blizzard is that you can't join your family on the holiday.

It's rainy here in Moscow and above freezing so the streets are absolutely filthy and full of brown, dirty slop.

I have sinus problems but the school doctor checked me out after Natalia's class holiday performance and we stopped at the drug store on our way home.

It does sound so cozy! I thought it would be snowy in Michigan, too, but not really...only freezing rain. And here in PA no snow on the ground at all!

Merry Christmas!!
You all have more snow there than we do here :) Well at least where I live!

Merry Christmas! We had the snow a bot earlier, but it was white here at least!

Oooh, my Ian would be so jealous of the sledding. Just today he was wishing that we could drive to "Alaska and maybe find a hill with snow." Ah, the dreams of a Texas seven year old.

Happy Belated Holiday! Hope your New Year's goes just as well, with less snow!
