Holly, Debbie and Annie, please be sure and get me copies of all of yours from this first week! I'm counting on you.
My kids on the plane (seeming so well behaved... HA! Don't let them fool you. This was simply the only moment I had to take the camera out.)
Aunt Holly and Savannah
Sawyer, Savannah and Taegen
And the cousins in their matching jammies (and none of them were bought together or on purpose, isn't that funny?)
He just spent most of the day hanging out here on the couch or on a lap, just laying low. It was sure nice to have so many cuddles from him though.
Here's the snow that was outside for the first half of this week. I know, it might not look like much, especially to you in the midwest who are used to real snow. But here, this much is so rare that it paralyzes the city. They don't treat the roads here with any de-icer or use any salt. And in the whole metro area there are probably only four snowplows. So the roads are covered and icy and just a mess. Accidents everywhere and snow chains required, and it's much safer just to stay off the roads. And wait for it to go away. Which it has, by today.
