Not dreaming anymore...

I was feeling jealous of Spokane and the awesome amount of snow they received. I was also mocking the 24 hour news coverage of our piddly storm.
Here's our "really, really deep" snow as one wizened newscaster described it.
Here we are sledding on our meager snow offering. Both kids loved it by the way. K would scream and squeal everytime she went down the hill. At the bottom D would say, "Let's do it again!"

Anyway, about the jealousy thing, ask and ye shall receive as the saying goes.
What I want to know is if that was "really, really deep" snow then what is this?

We probably ended up with just over a foot of snow. Which I realize is no where near as much as some places but way better than what we had. Incidentally, after the snow we had a freezing rain so there was about 1/2 an inch of ice over the snow. You can kind of tell in the picture of D's legs. He was having lots of fun breaking the ice and throwing big chunks at the garage to break apart.

Also, since snow is not very common for these here parts, the city/county doesn't really have much by way of plows. We went for a drive through downtown yesterday (everything was closed and church was cancelled but WE had to try out our chains...) and there was not a snowplow in sight. We did see a front-end loader pushing snow off the roads though.

In other news, look what I did!!!

That's right, I made stocking this year for our entire family. They are really big, which I didn't exactly plan but since I can barely follow a pattern I wasn't about to go and change it. Too bad I will be behind next year. Sigh. I still have the pattern. Really, I should have just done five to begin with.

Merry Christmas All!

Wait, you'll be behind next year?! Is Baby Pyatt #3 on the way?! You can't keep teasing us like this Sheena! This is the second time you've hinted that there might be another bundle of joy coming in the near future. Last time you said it wasn't true, you in fact were not preggers, but are you now?!

Nice stockings. I really like them. Way to go you crafty woman!

Merry Christmas!

I remember in the winter of 2005 we had an ice storm up there and they had 24 hours news coverage- it was pretty comical how many different pieces of "large ice" they could talk about! Pretty crazy weather up there, so fun for the kids! Nice job on the stockings, I am hoping to one day make all of ours too- I may give you a call.
