Snowed In!




If you haven't heard....we have been hit by an arctic blast!! We have lived in Battle Ground for over five years, and it usually only snows once or twice, one or two inches, that lasts for a day or two. The kids basically didn't have school the last week before Christmas break--which means they will probably be going to school until the end of June--and we still have over a foot of snow on the ground! We barely made it out of our driveway to go to a friend's house a couple of blocks away. Church has been cancelled the last two weeks, and we'll find out if we get to go this week in a couple of days. The Portland area basically shuts down, which made preparing for Christmas extremely difficult. I hate to admit it....it's been ten years since we've lived somewhere where it snows, and I was a chicken to leave the house!

Crazy weather you've been having! I feel slightly envious that we didn't get a chance to play in the snow (we've been talking about planning a trip up to Lake Tahoe next month) but then again, we went to the beach yesterday. So I guess I can't complain. :-) I love the new family picture, by the way!

Fun. We're in Utah for Christmas and got hit pretty hard too. I just stayed in my jammies and watched movies. Love it!

Hey Kim,
Did you get our Christmas card? I noticed you had a new address so I wanted to get it to you. Email me and let me know. I can't find your email either.
