We have a broken computer at our home :0(. So right now I can't post pictures. I'm using my hubby's work laptop to check in and say Hi. Well, after a slow start all thing weather lined up correctly and we have snow on the ground. It hasn't got above 25 degrees here today!! For us in this northern but very mild climate - this is very unusual. And the weathermen are saying lots more snow and cold going on for sometime. Looks like it could be a white Christmas!! That hasn't happened since my oldest was a baby 18 years ago!!! Everyone is hoping. The only thing that is a bit worrisome to me is that my oldest boy drives for his job. I know people around the country laugh at those of us in the Pacific Northwest for our bad snow driving but there is a reason. First - snow doesn't happen all that often here and second our roads are very similar to San Fransisco - in other words - very steep hills and lots of curvy roads. We also don't have nearly as much snow removal equipment in our towns and cities. So, all that to say, I'm excited about this crazy weather but hoping my boy doesn't experience a mishap while driving in this snow and ice!! God is hearing plenty of prayers for his safety!!
Another prayer from me is that we all have colds - again!! I'm on the mend - I always am determined if I do get a bug to never have it for very long :0) I'm just hoping Esther doesn't come down with it. Her ears looked great at the doctor' office last week but I just don't want her to have another ear infection!! If she shows any sign of sniffles I will be trying the garlic oil hoping that will do the trick!! My pediatrictian said that it certainly is worth a try - I really like him because he is reluctant to overdo the antibiotics so if there is another way that might work and won't hurt the child he is willing to give it a shot. He also knows I'm very experienced at ear infections (having had 5 kids with chronic ear trouble) so I know just the right moment to get the big guns going!
I wish I could put up some pictures - I hope just words isn't boring!! Hopefully we can figure out whats wrong with that silly machine!! I must go put dinner in the oven - some days writing is just more fun than my regular routine. I just want to keep sitting by the window all day looking at that pretty snow!!!
