and so it begins...


We'll definitely have a white Christmas this year. It has snowed well over 2 feet in the last 24 hours. The wind has been CRAZY and the drifts are quite spectacular. Absolutely beautiful.


I shoveled that huge driveway twice, thank you very much. It almost killed me, but I did it. I am so satisfied with my work (so sore too!). I am in love with our cute little house. It makes me so happy and it is completely me.

The snow was almost as deep as Toby and he had quite the time trying to make his way through it. Kaden got stuck a few times and had to be rescued, but he sure did love playing in it. While I shoveled our neighbor was out shoveling. She isn't married, and we were talking about how we needed someone to come and rescue us. Not too long after that, her home teachers showed up and shoveled her out then came to help me finish. I was nearly done, but so grateful for the help. It took nearly 2 hours to shovel each time. Then, my sweet dad and brother came to shovel my deck, after they had already been working all day. I was so appreciative.
Oh, and just for kicks, I decided to wear my heart rate watch; I might have burned every calorie I ate in the past 2 days. (Well, maybe not since I ate a lot of brownies, cider, doughnuts, and the like.) Seriously, this shoveling business beats the pants off carrying my giant child in the backpack. I am super woman.

You are a chip off the old block!! I can still shovel as fast and furiously as ever, but the AFTER effects are a lot worse! Boo.
You are amazing. The snow is pretty, especially once it's fallen and shoveled.
