(Someone, please tell me I'm not the only one with a dead Christmas tree still laying on the back deck?)
Grand total of about 8 inches right now and still blizzarding.
Its pretty out there.
The Littles thought that making tracks in the four inches we had yesterday was fun.
Just wait until they get a chance to go out and play later today.
The school district is only on a 2 hour delay, but we are quite a bit higher in elevation than most of the district, and there is no way we are braving those roads for a measly 3 hour day of learning the alphabet. This kid can already read like a ten year old. Don't you think he deserves a snow day?
Oh, and did I mention... newborn puppies are trying to stay warm out in the kennel right now. Born throughout Saturday afternoon into Sunday morning.
Lucie was definitely an overachiever and gave birth to 13. A few of them were very small and weak. We are now down to 10 puppies (ten is still a big litter!), and making hourly trips to make sure everyone is cozy and dry.
It is hard work, and possibly more exhausting emotionally than physically. Those little pups are so weak and defenseless. Its hard to not feel like we should be out there guarding them like Mother hens every second. But with kids and jobs and chores, it just isn't feasable to drop everything. So we trek, back and forth, day and night, wishing the days away until they are older and stronger.
