A Short Catch Up Post

Christmas was very nice. The kids were into the whole leaving cookies and reindeer food (oatmeal mixed with red sprinkles) out for Santa. They were not as excited on Christmas morning as I thought they would be. They took awhile to even begin to open gifts. Santa did not wrap his gifts and they did gravitate towards those first. I guess that's all they needed. I just expected some tearing into the gifts but didn't get that. That's okay though. I'm sure next year will be totally different. I have a skeptic on my hands. Ryan actually questioned whether Santa had really come. I reassured him that he did come and he seemed to accept that. We spent the day visiting family and they were whooped.

The day after Christmas we had a major snowstorm here that dropped two plus feet of snow and the drifts were so bad that we couldn't see out the front door at all. It was all mounded up in front like we have never seen. We seem to be getting hit every week with some sort of snowstorm. Today it was ice and school was cancelled. It's actually getting a bit old already. I can't wait for spring to hurry up and get here.

That's all that's been going on here. Snow, snow, and more snow.
