A Winter Wonderland

It is very, very cold here today and it's been snowing for a couple of hours. We still have about 8-10 inches of snow on the ground from Saturday, and we are going to get about 6-10 more inches tonight. The reported high for tomorrow is 7 degrees...and that is optimistic. We're prepared though...I've got plenty of hot cocoa mix, plenty of groceries, a pot of chili going, and some fun things planned for the kids tomorrow if school is cancelled. I was really surprised they had school yesterday because our roads are still very icy. My guess is that they knew this new storm was coming in today and the chance was great that we'd need to take some snow days. I'm no expert, but that's my thought on the matter. We were supposed to have pizza with Santa tonight at the kids' school. They've already rescheduled it for next week. I think that was a great call because I'm ready to put on my pjs and stay in for the night.

John and I have really gotten into the television show LOST. We've never watched the show during it's regularly scheduled time, but instead we rent the dvd's at Blockbuster. We much prefer watching a show like that back-to-back. My friend who got us hooked on watching "24" told me about "Lost". I really like it now, but it took a while to get into it. We're almost finished with season 1 and it is getting very interesting. When one episode ends, we can't stand not to start the next one. We've been staying up way too late at night because we're addicted to the show! So...our plan for this cold, snowy night is to put the kids to bed and watch the next 4 episodes. Hopefully we'll get to sleep before midnight!

Hey Meredith,
You know Becky and I have been addicted to LOST since the beginning. With Ethan around we now just Tivo it and watch it late at night when he goes to sleep. We like to think of John as our "Locke" figure :) although we are still praying for his decision to know Christ. Hope you guys are well. We love you,
