Happy New Year

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to all!

I have to say that this was one of my favorite Christmas's ever. Now that the girls are getting bigger, we are appreciating the Holidays more. Erawyn and Shallon this year decorated the tree almost by themselves. I always rememberd my mom letting us decorate the tree and then after we wen to bed she would re-arrange them. But she was always careful to wait until we were alsleep as to not hurt our feelings. I had just happend to catch her one year. But since I am lacking in the home decor department, i left most of the decorations as is, for it looked pretty good to me.

We spent Christmas eve with mikes family and had a wonderful time even though we wer in the middle of another snow storm so everyone has to be driven in 4x4 vehicles. And in the event of a sleep over, we had plenty of food and wood heat to have a great time. The snow just kept coming and coming. By Christmas morning we had about 2 feet of snow. We again had to be rescued by my family in their trucks so that we could spend the day at their house to open presents. Mom had unfortunately got called into work that morning so it felt very diffrent without her there. We then got escored back home for the evening and got the animals taken care of and hunkered down in our winter wonder land.

We thank you all for your prayers and support during mikes emergency. Can't believe how thankful we are that it rained the night before so the ambulance could get back to us.
