Yes, just this morning  we woke up to a snowy landscape!  It wasn't very snowy, but we were excited all the same.  It began to snow heavily just after breakfast and we were all happy that there was going to be lots of snow...but it waned after ten minutes or so and the sun came out. 


Of course with the low temperature, and the fact that we have been switching our water pump off overnight these days, has resulted in us having no water supply for the day - at least until it begins to thaw out.  Fret not though, as I have a saucepan under a drain pipe outside, gathering melted snow off the roof for us to wash the dishes in!  

Yes, Dylan Did Throw That Big Snowball At His Sisters!

 The kids ate and got dressed quicker than I have ever seen, and headed out to play before it melted!  Meg was so happy!.  I took a few pictures out of the upstairs windows as they walked about and played, and I went about with the upstairs morning chores.   

...Running Away!

If there are any people out there, who still read my poorly kept blog, I do have a HUGE family update coming, with all those odds and ends of family life that I have been neglecting to post.  I had hoped to finish it up last week, but unfortunately I was down with a bad stomach bug for three days, and so I never quite got around to it.  Thankfully I'm well again now, and I am so thankful for good health!  I trust you are all having a blessed week!

...I Wonder How Long It Might Be, Before Someone Sends Me
