Miss T and D are here with us as Son and DIL are in Houston with the Pats. I've been watching the game and so far they are ahead which is nice!
they lost. :o(
We were out cleaning a path on the back deck last night to the bird feeders and there was plenty to shovel.
Look at the poor grill!
It was really coming down and the wind was blowing quite hard. We were protected by the house so it wasn't too cold.
Noodles was watching us from the warmth of inside but earlier in the day he was right out in the storm hoping an unsuspecting bird would fly his way.
You can just see the barn through the snow and the firepit looks pretty cold!
We came in and got a fire going down in the basement and played air hockey and with the blocks. I love primary colors!
Grampy got in on the action building a tall tower that eventually got too tall and toppled over with a little help from guess who?!
Miss T built a fancy barn and a riding ring in back of it that you can't really see.
This morning there wasn't any church due to the road conditions so the Hubs did an errand out by the mall and stopped to take some pictures of how high the snow is where they have been clearing the parking lot.
Look at the size of the pile compared to the size of the truck! That's a lot of snow!
Don't forget to enter my New Years Give Away on my last post. Just go back one and leave a comment so that I know you've thrown your hat in the ring.
I get on a rant now and then about the celebrities and how they, at least quite a few of them, like to party too much and get in the news for all kinds of stupid things. Charl*ie She*en, is back in the news again for holding a knife to his girlfriends throat and of course we are all sick of hearing about Tiger's escapades on and off the golf course. Jon Goss*lin from J*on and Ka*te Plus 8 is just making a fool of himself with all of his goings on which is sooooooo sad considering he has eight children.
We have a very few celebrities in our little town but Step*hen K*ing and Tabitha live in the next town over. I'm not a fan of his kind of writing as it scares the wits out of me and the language makes me blush but I will say this for him, he and his wife are very generous people. Just recently we had a group of men and women go to boot camp a few weeks before Christmas. Not a very happy time to be leaving home under the best of circumstances but right at Christmas is the pits.
Not many of them had the money to fly home for a few days before and after Christmas and then the news came out that the Kings were bringing them home for the holidays! They came in numerous big coaches and there was not a dry eye when they pulled in! The Kings have been very generous to the community that they came from with donations to the libraries, hospitals and other things that most people don't even know about. This is what celebrity and the money it earns should be used for, not to see how many cars that they can have in their garages. I think I read somewhere where one celeb has 37 cars and you can bet your boots they are not little inexpensive models.
I know there are many celebs out there that do good things but so many of them live lush, excessive lifestyles and are very self absorbed. I just want to say thanks to two of them that go the extra mile and see needs and do something about it.
I won't be posting for a while as we will be away. The Tahoe is packed with all of Nick's things and the trailer is ready to roll. The weather looks like it's going to be okay and my little suitcase is packed. Nick is taking more then I am! Please keep us in your thoughts and prayers as we travel and thank you Mikael for the advice on the leg wraps!
Also please keep my next door neighbor in your prayers as her husband passed away yesterday due to liver cancer. He was a wonderful man, always ready to help when needed, always a smile on his face and he loved all my horses. We will miss Jim. A LOT.
