No church tomorrow



We're sad; our dear pastor called this evening and told us that they called off our meetings tomorrow due to the icy conditions that are present AND expected. We'll have a nice day at home together. I said, shotgun, piano player. And Jody said shotgun preacher:) and Mikayla's taking the offering- ha!

We had a MOST enjoyable time with Grandpa and Emmie this evening. Grace and family were expected to be there, but due to the weather, they cancelled:( So, we figured- the fun must go on! (as I'm typing, Jody and I are watching Mikayla's birth video. sigh. WHAT GOOD MEMORIES! My dear husband is SOOO gentle with her and loving. It thrills my heart to see/hear him in action. As time goes on, he's all the more kind and good to our Mikayla and ME!)Anyway, my dad made some tasty beans, my mom made some yummy rice, and I contributed the guacamole. Delicious meal. And for dessert my dad made some sticky buns and we watched Moby Dick (family tradition). AND enjoyed a lovely and warm fireplace:) Wish those Ledbetters could've been there, but I'm glad they stayed safely at home.

Has anybody ever noticed that when you run out of bottled water, suddenly you feel so parched?? Our tap water is really not horrible at all, but we're so used to the other. And you almost feel like a hero when you actually turn the faucet on and fill your cup up. it's kinda funny to me.

Good night, ladies!

Principessa! I love you loads! So glad Jody made it ok, skating to work, and you're staying put today. Keep that baby safe. Good point about the water--I've been eyeing ours lately, as it's getting low, too. Yikes! (How did we ever live before?) Cute pic of sis. I miss her! Lots of love to you and yours!--m

Laura, I'd LOVE it if you guys could make it:) Glad you had a great visit in LA- aren't Jean and Jerry fun?? We sure like 'em:)

Mikayla doesn't have too many toys at all. She does like books. She likes the "who loves baby" book and one that Amy got her called "water, water everywhere." The Seguin Dodsons presence is very high on her wish list! :) And she wears 9-12 months right now- big girl!
