Let It Snow, Let It Snow, Let It Snow!!!

As you can tell from the title of this post, we are experiencing LOTS OF SNOW!!!! Some of you folks live in the land of snow and so it's no big deal to have this amount of snow, but this amount in a 24 hour period is somewhat unusual for Spokane. Folks in Post Falls have over 27 inches. We have at least 2 feet. Here's some pics to prove it. We're staying home and digging out. All schools are shut down and police don't want anyone out on the streets unless you have 4-wheel drive and then sometimes that doesn't even work. Over the weekend we get the deep freeze factor thrown in--below zero. Christmas just isn't Christmas without snow so "Merry Christmas" everyone!!

Dinner with Friends

Because we have such great friends, we invited them over for dinner Saturday. We had a great time of food and fellowship. Perhaps you'll recognize some of them. From left is Ken and Becky Johnson, Debbie and Jim Gilchrist, Dick and myself, Frank and Irma Geis (in front of tree), Skip and Cathy Elford, John and Martha Smith. Our sweet daughters (Lisa and Amie) along with our son-in-law Chris were our servants for the meal. They cooked and served the meal. We were very pampered, leaving us at the table to enjoy our unbroken fellowship and conversation. Thanks Chris, Lisa and Amie!!

Before our dinner festivities, we had time to take a couple pictures of Claire:

We think she already knows how to unwrap packages.

This year is going to be a hoot!!

Claire is now 8 months old!

Condo Windows

Here's progression pictures of our Dining Room Windows:

Lots of labor and time and we have completed the windows providing warmth and comfort.
And now we're working on Living Room Windows. Windows? Don't you look through windows? Check back in a week to see if we've completed this task.

Cody James is Three Today

Today we celebrated our grandson's third birthday. We all went to Lutherhaven--a camping facility out of Post Falls. It was a lovely evening with friends and kiddos.

Here's Cody with his birthday cupcake.

Before the festivities, he played with his friends and Cousin Buzz.

Papa was enjoying sitting by the lake side holding his prescious Claire.

Chris and Lisa sitting by the lake side.

Uncle Peter enjoying the sun.

When the night was over we got a shot of the three cousins together.

What a precious threesome!!
