Good Day Minnesota! I had intended on driving down to Iowa on Saturday to see my new nephew, but we woke up to several inches of white fun so our plans were changed.









After all our winter fun we lost power and had to quickly make arrangements to watch the Buckeye game at Chuck's house (we do have our priorities straight). We were out of power for about 22 hours and spent the night all five of us cozy in front of the fire. The girls thought it was awesome as I let them roast hot dogs for dinner. Jamie, who got up faithfully every hour to add more logs and stoke the fire did not find it as enchanting. Good day Minnesota....we shall see what this week brings us.

Oh my goodness Gretchen! I am not ready for that yet at all. Laughed my head off about jamie not being as enchanted as the girls...

I love your family. Congratulations on your new nephew. I know he is adorable.

Please keep all of that snow in Minnesota!

Glad it's you and not us, but I am sad for you that you couldn't get down to see your new nephew. Hopefully very soon.

I'm sure glad that white stuff held off to we were gone! Did the girls find the flashlights I bought? This is something the girls will always remember! Sue and Phil
