Blizzard Warning

Well, I probably should have posted this yesterday, but oh well. We have officially survived our first big blizzard of the season. We had blowing snow all day on Wednesday with temperatures tetering around zero degrees to the single below digits. Winds were constant at 32 mph with gusts up to 45 mph. The house seems like it was rocking all day. What made the blizzard even more fun was that we are dog sitting for a co-worker of Eric's. Any of you that have indoor dogs know that they need to go outside to do their business. Of course since it is an Alaskan Shephard, she doesn't mind a little cold. We have her for 4 or 5 more days. She's been a really good girl. Her and Chubbs know their boundries around each other, but every once and awhile, Chubbs has to let her know that this is his house! Signing off for now ~ Amy

Merry Christmas

Well, I know this is a few days late, but better late then never. We have hit our low point as far as darkness goes. We were down to 5 hours and 37 minutes of sunlight on Dec. 20. Now we are slowly gaining sunlight back. I do mean slowly too - 5 seconds a day. That will start changing before too long though. For those of you that didn't get a Christmas letter in the mail, here is a copy of it.

You may need to save the picture to read the letter.

We didn't do too much for Christmas. Since we didn't have a tree, we took the liberty to decorate the antlers hanging on the wall. The pictures don't do it justice though. The lights are actually clear and looked beautiful.
Well, that's it for this mornings post. I'll try to post some of the house pictures this afternoon. Love and miss you all. ~Amy
