We need a snow plow!!!!

So it has been snowing since yesterday morning here, and it has gotten amazingly deep, really fast. I haven't seen this much snow since I think I was in 3rd grade. I shoveled our driveway out yesterday morning a little bit after 9...there was about 6 inches or so when I did it. Well, it continued to snow, and this is what we found in the morning...

Before and After the Snow! :)

John managed to get out of the house with the help of one of his assistants and her SUV. They went to do a crown on a patient. Dedication! Our camry wouldn't have made it on the roads with 2-3 feet of snow! We are just enjoying being inside with each other, wrapping presents, playing in the snow and all know how I love the last one...:)

Thankfully we have a super nice neighbor who used his snowblower to clear our driveway for us. John started shoveling it this morning...what a joke! Then our neighbor came to help. We looked into getting a snowblower a month or so ago and I decided it was too expensive...after this storm I decided it is well worth the money--even if it only snows like this once a year!

Happy Birthday Nathan!

Just a few pictures from Nathan's party and his wonderful train cake that I made! Haha! I think it turned out pretty good. :) I can't believe that he is 2 now! He is such a good little boy most of the time...and then he becomes very opinionated and independent and throws tantrums--especially when it's time to get out of the bath or get dressed/put his shoes/coat on! Oh well, we love him and he is just getting so big and he's talking so much more. He loves to run and jump and do all those fun boy things. He loves the new toys he got including a basketball hoop, a tool bench with all the tools and a farm set with animals, tractors and implements. We love you Nathan! Happy Birthday!

It has been COLD!

It's so funny to me to see some people's blogs who are bundling up for like 50 degree weather--not saying that I haven't done it before myself, BUT when you have 9 degree weather with the windchill factor making it feel like -15 degrees, it kind of changes your perspective on bundling up! :) It has been so cold this past weekend, and it will stay really cold until who knows when. Next week is supposed to be back up in the 30's, so we'll see. One large plus to the cold weather is that it snowed, and has stuck for several days!! Yahoo!! I haven't convinced Nathan to go play in it yet-- the first day when it was still in the 20's with no wind, he just wouldn't put his boots on. Now I don't want to go outside cause of the wind!

We celebrated Nathan's birthday last night, and I will post pics and give more info on that tomorrow when it is his actual birthday!

Update: We are still here!

For anyone who even cares...we are still alive. I have just been amazingly lazy and busy with all the holiday stuff. :) I did see Twilight with my sis-in-law xan and her sister, and also another sis-in-law and my mother-in-law. We had fun, and although the movie was a bit corny/cheesy, I liked it!

We had a little visit from my brother and sister-- Jarom and Megan-- and Nathan has been saying their names daily ever since.

Thanksgiving was fun, and I ate too many rolls and stuffing. I am not that big of a fan of turkey, but the rolls...:) We got snow here on the day after Thanksgiving and that is when we also put our tree up! YAY! I love Christmas trees and all the decorations at this time of year. Nathan will be two on the 17th, and he is definitely beginning the terrible two stage. He throws so many fits it's amazing, but with a few time-outs every day we manage. The worst is getting him to change out of his pajama's into his clothes and then getting out of the bathtub to put his pajama's on at night. He is talking so much more and will string two or three words together at a time now. I love him so much and just think he's adorable!

Here is a random picture from October with Grandma Jemmett--Go Broncos!
