CAH-We were waiting for you to help shovel, we waited and waited, we just did it. It took a couple hours but it is done.

I put the date on the back of it so I can remember when he made it when I bring it out to display every year. I am getting a large collection of hand made goodies from the kids. Our hallways is full of art work they have hung on the walls.



I love it!

Sorry, Seawaters was going to drop me off first to get started but we have been doing circles around the airport all day waiting on them to get the runways open.


Add skis for the landing gear on the lear to her Christmas list for next year.

This is the fourth year for me doing this and the funniest thing about it is knowing the restuarant down the hall is standing room only of all the moms who just cant stand to be left at home while their husbands and daughters enjoy a night of dancing. The dads get a kick at watching their heads peering in to see how it is going.
Have fun!!!

Also my hands and arms were hurting from all those dishes I had to wash at Made's today so just too tired to shovel.

(Do we have enough excuses yet???)

Here's our cars in the driveway:


Can't get out of the driveway:


Here's one of those waist-high snowdrifts:

Wow, that's a lot of snow!!!!
