"Iced In"

Wow~have we ever been hit with a storm!! The forecast had been calling for some ice on Sunday. Sometimes they are "on", sometimes not. This time--Bull's Eye!! :-) Sunday morning we woke up to a pretty significant amount and it continued throughout the day. We didn't have services on Sunday so we (verrrry slowly) headed out to my parents house. I KNEW I should have taken my camera. Late afternoon they lost power and that became a very interesting/amusing/... experience especially for Khara and Kelsey. My dad dug out the lanterns and flashlights. My mom melted chocolate for peanut clusters over the stove. (yes, we were getting a little bored and enjoying the novelty or pioneer days :-). For supper we roasted hot dogs over the fire in the fireplace. It was definitely a memorable evening.

No school today, no school tomorrow, and as I type this it is 32 degrees and raining!! :-{

Our front yard.

Greenery and lights on the front porch railing.

I had my ultrasound on Thursday and the Dr. office called today with the results. Everything came back normal~the fluid levels, the fetal screens,etc. AND, everything is in the right place. I am SOOO thankful!!!! They did tell me on Thur. that the baby already weighed 3lbs. 11ozs. The technician paused and asked, "Do you have big babies??" :-) And, the due date according to this ultrasound is February 8. A Great Report!!!!

Wow! You did get the ice! So glad you got a good report.

Unbelievable! (regarding the ice, that is) :-) That would have been so funny to see the hot dogs roasting inside the house! :-)

It is so hard to believe that there is that kind of weather in the world right now! I am really excited about getting to Lima this Sunday (monday morning early, actually) and experiencing some of that cold weather for myself! Not to mention the fact that I'll get to see my adorable nieces and nephews!

Glad everything is going well for you and the new little one. :D

Wow! It is in the high 70's here today. Totally not Christmas weather but I'm not complaining. :)

Julie said...

Can't believe all that ice! So glad your report was all good news.

You have an invitation to Florida to thaw out! Hope you are surviving winter... I do miss the snow.
Thomas moved to Florida from Ft. Leonard Wood. He never ever wants to return to the north.

I don't envy the ice!
How big were your babies?

Jana said...

Ice makes me a little nervous as well. But, bring on the snow!!

Khara, my first, was 9lbs. Kelsey was 8lbs.3oz., and Kaden was 9lbs.14 ozs. Khara and Kaden also each measured 22 1/2 inches long. No newborn sleepers for them.:-)

Congrats on the upcoming little one!!! I didn't know you were expecting!

Rachelle's last baby was a 10 pounder so I guess anything is possible.
My prayers are with you and your beautiful family. It's been so long since I've seen ya'll.

Merry Christmas!!!:-)
