Is it Spring yet????

My back yard with 9" of snow. (at 3 pm) We have 13" right now. (8:30 pm)

Looking up my road. We're supposed to get 4 to 8 more inches tonight.

My girls in our driveway. I am supposed to pick up my husband tomorrow IF his flight comes in. Color me panicky! If not for a nice glass of merlot I would be climbing the walls right now!
Wish I had a friend with a snow plow!
If my husband comes home tomorrow, I won't be here. If he doesn't, I'll be depressed and you won't want me here. So, let me wish you all a very merry Christmas!!! Hope all your wishes come true!

Snow Day!

No school today for Casey! Heck, even businesses are closing for the day. People freak out here when we get a couple inches of snow. Seattle got 2 inches and the news stayed on ABC, CBS and NBC for 5 hours straight giving minute-by-minute updates. I grew up in Ohio and we had to have a foot of snow before school would close! Granted, Wahington is definitely not flat like Ohio, so driving in snow is more treacherous, but still! View from my back deck this morning.

My front steps leading up to the road.

I hope everyone is staying warm and toasty. I'm staying in and knitting fingerless gloves and mittens!

Need a giggle?

Do you need a good laugh? Check out the latest blog added to my "favorite" list.
Even if you don't crochet I think you'll enjoy the humor here. Some of the posts are literally laugh-out-loud funny!

Makes a mother proud!

Look what my baby is doing. Jess sees me playing in my art journal all the time and wanted one of her own. I gave her a composition book and she started gluing pictures from magazines in her journal. Next she was adding paint, just like mama. My heart swells with pride! My girl will be crocheting and knitting before you know it!

This is a gorgeous sunrise I happened to catch a couple days ago. Who knew 7:00 a.m. could be so beautiful?
