Merry Christmas!!

Merry Christmas, everyone!! Please stay safe and warm! I'm off to snowblow the driveway (including the 3 feet of Christmas present the snowplow left me at the end of our driveway this morning - I'll be sure to send him a thank you card). Then off to Karen's mom's for the day.

Christmas Snowstorm - Day 2

Day 2 of the Great Christmas Snowstorm brought... can you guess???... More snow. Looks like 3 1/2 more inches, but this stuff is wet, heavy and has partially melted, so we probably got more. I guess I'll call it 3 1/2, which brings the "storm" total to 8 3/4 inches. A couple more inches today and it should be over!

Christmas Snowstorm - Day 1

Day 1 of the Christmas snowstorm to end all Christmas snowstorms has come and gone. Below are some pics! Total so far: 5 1/4 inches. More on the way tonight although it's snowing big flakes right now.

This is a lawn ornament that didn't make it inside for winter. It normally looks like the planet Saturn.

The picnic table piled high.

No Longer Puzzled

Karen and I finished the puzzle the family started when they were here over Thanksgiving. It was 1000 pieces "I Spy" puzzle that was a challenge down to the last 4 pieces! We aren't sure how many hours we spent on it, but we both worked on it several nights for a couple hours and quite a bit on Saturday.
