I forgot to mention...

I forgot to mention in yesterday's post that we STILL have snow on the ground from our blizzard last month. On Thursday, October 26, we got over 2 feet of snow in about 12 hours. It was CRAZY. At some points throughout the day, we were getting 3-5 inches PER HOUR!!! Colorado Springs was deserted...schools were closed, offices were closed, malls were closed, even the interstate was closed. We were scheduled to fly to Arkansas the next day. We were able to make it to Denver the next morning, but it took us 20 minutes just to get out of our DRIVEWAY! It was a mess! Despite our nice temps this week 50s/60s, there is still quite a bit of snow on the ground all over town, our backyard included. Not really enough to play in, but enough to remind us to be thankful for the beautiful week we're having!!!! Hope yours is nice too!

Mer.... How fun it is to see your "happenings".
I cannot imagine 8 inches of snow. You know Georgia is lucky to have an inch.

I am so happy to hear of John's job. I know he will be a welcome addition to Cook as he has so much to offer them.

Your family picture is awesome. Everyone looks great!

Have a blessed Thanksgiving,
Love, Julie T/ Jewelz
