Report on the Blizzard...

Well, it came. It sounded blizzardy during the night. Around 5:00 a.m. I heard snow thunder!! I had heard of it but never heard it before! It was a big boom and then rolled for a good 20 seconds. The wind was howling too and the snow was coming down horizontal! After the thunder Charlie had to go outside and when he came in he was a little white puppy instead of a little red puppy!! The official report was that we got 8 inches, which doesn't sound like much until you have to shovel it out of the driveway. Just ask Howard and Scott!!

They were out shoveling for a good hour. And as an added bonus: we are having a SNOW DAY today! No one really cares about that other than me as Scott is finished with school and Howard took this week off anyway but it gives me another day to get things done around here!! They called the snow day last night around 11:00 so I didn't have to get up early to find out. I'm sure the main roads will be ok but the back roads won't be cleared off until probably sometime today, that's why school was cancelled I'm sure.
So today I will get some more things done which is really nice. I still have cookies to ice, basements to clean, laundry to do and gifts to wrap.
Scott and Tyler are both finished with their exams and this semester. Tyler is enjoying Hawaii for a few days before he comes back to Michigan on Wednesday. It will be so nice to have everyone together again later this week!

Christmas Eve is just a week from today and Santa will be filling up those stockings!

And even though these two don't have stockings, Santa will surely bring them lots of new toys and chew bones, they've been such good little doggies. Even though lately in most pictures Zoe seems to be sticking her tongue out at the whole idea of holiday spirit! Either that or she's just finally getting tired of posing for pictures!
