For any of you Yankees that are laughing right now, please know that I am not a snow chicken. My husband and I still go out in weather like this and we enjoy ourselves. I lived in Alaska for 8 years as a child and we went to school in 3 feet of snow....much less 3 inches. We took our sleds with us! But here in NC, we just don't get that much, and it is nice to have a day off to enjoy it. I think God gives us these snow days when we just can't handle much more. It is a collective blessing that He bestows on our town.
This is my backyard. Do you see my little birdbath? Well, birds never use it anymore after my dog caught one and ate it! She stood there with little bird feet in her mouth and had a snack. Trip to the vet was that lucky hunter's reward.
Thought I would include with this post a shot of me and my mother-in-law with the new twins. I am on the left, with the curly hair and Judy is on the right. I am holding Payden, who was sleeping so nicely the entire time. Judy has Cheyenne, who was being a little more fussy.
Katie was really out of it when we went to visit. They still had her on several drips and she was still in some pain from the C section. Charlie does not hold new born babies, so there aren't any pics of the hubby with the twins. He says that their heads wobble and he will hold them when they are his own children. I guess that is something to be thankful for.
Well, today is Valentine's Day, so I am relaxing and then my sweetie is taking me out for the night. I hope everyone enjoys their day, whether it is romantic or not. My day started out perfectly, with a blanket of white. My wish for you all is that today will bring you the same sense of satisfaction that I was brought with 3 inches of snow. Find a good book (I made some suggestions yesterday) a good movie, or a good friend and let today be about filling our hearts with joy, wherever it may come from.
Happy Valentine's Day!!
