We will be having a white christmas as Friday dumped about 9 inches on us and the we got an additional foot on Sunday.I don't know about any where else in the state, but it snowed in Deerfield from friday at 2 pm to the middle of the night Sunday.I won't say it was blizzard like the whole time but the snow didnt stop that whole time.CRAZY!
My Kids are glad and having a fun time. From the ice storm 1 1/2 weeks ago there are still about 20,000 people w/o power. The storms didn't take out power, but The cars and trucks that hit the power poles sure did. I just hope those that have been without power for now 12 days will have it back for Christmas.

Things to be thankful for:
1: We have An old house. A really old house . This means Tin Ceilings that dry really quickly and won't mold.and that don't fall apart because there is multiple gallons of water pouring down on them. Also this means that I have crooked floors, that water runs right into the other blessing; a dirt floor basement . Also Slat wood floors in the upstairs bedroom and no carpeting,that water can just run through to the tin ceiling below it and there is also No insulation between the floor and the ceiling so no mold issue there either.
2:Very minimal damage; Just have to paint the wall that the water ran down. Didn't even need to replace it.
3: An Awesome Daughter that did not yell, scream, or throw a temper tantrum, because she in all right had a very good reasson to. Considering all of her stuff was damaged. Nope, she and I just used a hairdryer and the blower from our fireplace to dry the books, papers, folders, etc,etc, It took us 2 hours and she never complained once.And nothing was destroyed, we were able to dry all of it.
4: My dog Abby, that was tring to tell me and big Eric that something was wrong. In fact She woke us up and we both were saying 2 minutes before I went to put Jake back in bed. "What the heck is wrong with the dog, she's going crazy????"
5: That I have an unusual amount of beach towels for someone who lives in NH....why did I buy that many????? They sure did come in handy.
As for the pipe that burst, it had a leak in the seam of a connector , so that was and easy fix as well. Especially since all the water ran out of it ....
What was I saying the other day to Anna? That I haven't had much drama lately. I really need to stop saying that.....

September, Jacob turned 4 and it was also turkey season. 7 turkeys are now in our freezer and just to spice things up Jake decided to pull some ramen noodles out of the microwave and got a 3rd degree burn on his chest.The bandages are more than it looks . He has sensitive skin and cannot use tape so the burn was actually only about 3inches in diameter (bad enough) after many trips to SShriner's Jake is fine with only a fading pink scar. NO surgery!!!Yeah.
A new addition to auntie Beth's family. My mom Holds the newest of us. Madeline Hope. Appropriately named I think!

Thank you family that is always there.Funny thing about family they really don't have to be there,but Mine is.I am truly grateful for 2 sisters-in-law that have lived up to the sister name better than anyone ever could.
Thank you Friends that have moved out of my state but not away from me. You are cherished and truly loved!I had a hard time when 2 of my closest friends moved this year.I needed them . But I must say I never lost them. They are still just a call or e-mail away and I am grateful for that. I am grateful that as we age we realize the old addage- make new friends, but keep the old, one is silver the other gold-is actually true.I guess that it amazes me that true friendship never really goes away .I am grateful that I have been reacquainted with a close brother like friend after 15 years.And that after 15 years apart we still have a great relationship.Kind of picked up right where we left off.I am grateful for my children's laughter every day,their hugs and kisses.My daughters love and my sons joy for life.I am truly grateful that I have an honorable husband that will really, in the end of everything ,do anything for me.He holds me up when he knows I am about to fall.When I tell him to go ,he stays. For that I am truly grateful.I am so grateful for my Mothers strength. She does not see it but,she is a beautiful ,strong and compassionate woman,that I look up to every day.I wish that some day she can see herself through my eyes,and know what and who she truly is.
Thank you all!Please now that you are truly loved!

So he gets the tractor and I get the tow straps and away we go down to do this Very Dirty deed.
I was up to my Knees in Muck (remember the 3 weeks of rain we have had) and trying to put 2 tow straps around the body of the pig and get him tied up before he can figure out what WE are actually doing to him. That was fun!I strap him up and Eric hooks the straps to the backhoe. Up he goes . Well if you have ever heard a pig squeel you would have been belly laughing at this one. picture this pig hoisted up with a backhoe squeeling away at now almost 9 at night. The neighbors even came out to see what was going on ! LOL
Things are never boring around here, that is for sure!

I went to go Pick up Liz from her fiends house today and as I opened the door to go outside it was pouring buckets. Jake Looks at me and the expression on my face and grabs my hand and says" Its Ok Mom, I got you, we'll do it together." With a Huge smile out we ran to the car....together!
Well I must say after the crazy summer I have been having ,Animals getting out,dog getting hit by a car (is totally fine by the way), cub camp drop off at 8:30 am, work ....Etc etc.
I have to say that I am greatly blessed that I have a great set of family and friends. So thanks everyone! I also have (around the crazyness) been having a great summer with my kids.
I secretly went shopping with Lizzie yesterday at the mall! What a great time we had! Didn't really buy any thing, just some good quality time.
I am also glad that my Dad, Although not doing great, is still in great spirits! That is such a great thing.And that My Mom has incredible strength, even though she doesn't realize it!
So go about your day today and ask yourself How many blessing can I count? I bet they out weigh the bad things in life!
Have a great one!
