We left early Wednesday morning to drive down to North Carolina to be with Johanna's family for the Holidays. It took just over 14 hours to go the 800 miles. The kids both did great considering they were confined to the car for that long. Thursday we had dinner with everyone. Jack H. came thursday afternoon through saturday evening. Friday Jack, Paxton and I went to a park for a couple of hours to burn off some energy while some of the ladies went shopping. Friday night some folks came over and we had fun doing some karaoke and visiting. On Saturday some of us went to Old Salem which is a historical town not to far from Johanna's folks. It was neat to walk around and check that out. Paxton has had a lot of fun playing Wii every chance he gets since we have been here. We will be down here until Saturday when it will be time to head back home and get back in the groove of work again.
We had our winter special meeting this morning and then lunch afterwards. It snowed all day today on top of the snow that we got yesterday. Brody came home with us this afternoon. Late in the afternoon I took the boys outside to play in the snow. They went snow shoeing around the yard and had a great time in the DEEP snow. Jobe and Mamie and the girls brought pizza over for supper. It has finally stopped snowing for now but the wind has started blowing. It is definately Winter now.
It started snowing early yesterday afternoon and continued to snow all day today. Paxton and I did a little bit of sledding and snow shoeing this afternoon. Sounds like we are supposed to get more snow tomorrow too.
We finally got our power back today about 5:30 this afternoon. Thank you Mr. Honda Generator for all your hard work these last six days. Now you get to go back in the garage and rest for a while. Hopefully for a loooooong while!! I guess we are supposed to get some snow tomorrow afternoon/evening.
We have been without power since last friday early morning. We do have a generator, so we have been getting by just fine. It is still a mess around us and could be a while till we get power back. Oh well, makes for fun times!! Anyway, just wanted to give a little update and I will post pictures and stuff when we do get our power back. Until then........
