In awe of the beauty

I have not been to work all week. Cameron has not been to school. We measured 9.5 inches of snow in our yard. Our electricity managed to stay on while over 200,000 households were out and are still out. We got cabin fever a couple of times, but luckily my mom was adventurous and came and took us out. We had warm water and hot meals. We had lots of playtime, rest time, and together time and overall the week was good.

The ice storm came in on Thursday and I was amazed at the beauty of it all. Each leaf, twig, branch, and blade of grass was encased in ice. It was spectacular!

There were also several trees that could not withstand the weight of the snow and ice and snapped apart, lost branches or completely toppled down. I'm grateful that the tree that stood between my neighbor and I did not hurt my car or house when it fell apart. It stood over 20 feet tall and now it's on the ground. I thought it was going to be salvageable but it is going to have to be taken out.

I'm grateful that we're safe, warm and well!!! I'm grateful for the time I had with Cameron this week. I just wish I was a fortunate teller because if I had foreseen this storm I would have went on a vacation.

Today we woke up to a winter wonderland. I don't think I've ever experienced this much snow in the Great NorthWest!!! Cameron and i measured 9.5 inches in our front yard this morning. That is a lot of snow!!!

We are really enjoying the week off together!

Today the sun came out and killed our cute lil snowman.

1/16/2012 to 1/17/2012

they built a new one.
Bigger. Beefier. More Resilient.

Once there was a snowman

I love days like these.
Lots of time to hang out, time to laugh, time to play, time to not care about anything.
I'd take those days every day with this little guy!

It was cold, but it was sooooo fun!

Cobras 2012

Basketball has started once again.
Cameron has a love/hate relationship. He hates to get ready and go but once he gets there he loves it. He made a his first basket of the season on Saturday. Wish I could have caught the excitement on film but my camera SUCKS!!!!
