I'm back! With a ton of photos! :)

After several days without power we are up and running again! We certainly lived the pioneer life! Even fixed a big pot of deer chili in the fireplace! There are still a lot of people in our area that are without power. We ended up with 9+ inches of snow! These photos are of my driveway! I think it looks soooooo pretty!


Even with all of this snow, Richard was able to get off the hill and go pick up Lexie for the day! It was great! We had a wonderful day! She spent a few hours here, even though we didn't have electric we still had a great time with her. Then we all made the trip to Richards Grandmothers for Christmas with his family. Everyone was very excited to see Lexie! Here is a photo of her and Richard, don't they look a lot alike? She seems to be a very sweet young lady! She will be back down to visit in a couple of weeks! So what do you when the power is off for days? Besides pull your hair out? :) I cut out a ton of things to sew! Then after the power came back on, I started sewing like a crazy lady trying to get it done! Here are two couch caddies that are gifts...
two more hot pads...
I got the rest of Bonnie's mystery cut out!...This is a kit that I had, I got the whole quilt cut out and ready to sew...And I cut out 7 blocks to this quilt, which is for Lexie! She asked for pink and lime green with hearts. So my plan is...the blocks will be like this and I will set it up with lime green sashings and borders. Here are several photos of my fat cat...being lazy, as usual!
And here are all of my boys! Having a wonderful time playing guitar! As you can see Hunter is singing! I just love family times like this! I hope everyone is having a wonderful Christmas! I'm sure I will have a lot more photos to come. Breanna, my other stepdaughter will be here in the morning! :)

Merry Christmas,

The pictures are wonderful...getting to see Lexi is a treat...she looks like such a beautiful young lady.

Sounded like you had a productive time even with the power being shut down.

We had snow storm too...everything cancelled as far as plans for 24th and 25th...Oklahoma City's official amount was 11 inches - which is most ever received in that period of time...we are about 40 miles from where they take the official reading...don't know exactly what we received - but sure have some big drifts.


Stay warm.

Merry Christmas to you and your family. You had lots more snow than we have had here in Idaho. When we lose our power we also lose our heat and water so my time is spent trying to stay warm. Glad you were still able to get together with everyone.

I can´t imagine how it is to be without electricity for days.
